McDonnell Took $177K in Cash and Gifts

"After hundreds of exhibits and 45 witnesses over the past three weeks, prosecutors rested their corruption case against former Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen," the Richmond Times Dispatch reports.

"In a gripping display Thursday, prosecutors directed a parade of designer dresses, pumps and handbags across the courtroom, a series of expensive gifts from Williams that the McDonnells returned after an investigation into the largesse was made public... FBI agent David Hulser, the government's last witness, testified Thursday that Williams' spending on the McDonnells -- including two loans for $50,000 and a third for $20,000 -- topped $177,000."
