McDonnell Corruption Trial Turns Into a Soap Opera

Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) "laid bare his troubled marriage during a remarkable day of testimony that revealed he and his wife are living separately for the trial and he is staying in his parish priest's rectory," the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

"Anchoring McDonnell's account of his marital drama was an emotional email the former governor sent his wife, Maureen, in September 2011. It conveys his love but deep heartache over a shattered marriage that worsened over time."
