McDonnell Knew About Gifts

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) "was aware of gifts and financial help provided by a wealthy Richmond area businessman during the same months the governor and his wife took steps to help his company," the Washington Post reports.

"People familiar with accounts that Williams and others have provided to investigators, as well as witnesses interviewed by The Post, say each of those gifts came with the governor's knowledge -- contrasting with an assertion by McDonnell's attorneys that he was in the dark about the extent of the gifts Williams bestowed on his family."
