McDonnell Trial Begins This Week

"In their much-anticipated federal corruption trial set to begin Monday, former Virginia governor Robert F. McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, will seek to win acquittal on multiple charges and restore their honor in the eyes of the law," the Washington Post reports.

"But over the course of the trial in a Richmond courtroom, expected to last five weeks, the McDonnells also will submit themselves to a potentially humiliating spectacle that will showcase an intimate view of their frayed marriage and odd personal relationships."

Said former Gov. Douglas Wilder: "It's going to be ugly. The more you read, the more sleaze develops. It's not going to be nice for anyone."
