McDonnell's Wife Bought Stock in Donor's Company

Virginia first lady Maureen McDonnell "twice purchased stock in Star Scientific in the same timeframe she and Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R) were taking steps to promote the dietary supplement company," the Washington Post reports.

"McDonnell's relationship with Jonnie R. Williams Sr., the chief executive of Star Scientific, is now at the center of ongoing federal and state investigations."

A spokesman said the first lady did not inform the governor either time she purchased stock.
