What goes around comes around: Bob McDonnell to resign as part of plea agreement

The man who pushed out the RPV chairman over trumped up corruption charges while running for governor is currently in the middle of finalizing a plea agreement which includes his resignation as governor.  More to come soon.

Article was posted after two people independently shared the story.

Multiple more sources confirming plea agreement is definitely being finalized.

UPDATE 12:32am 7/7/13 The Governor’s office is denying any reports of the Governor’s resignation:

UPDATE 7:48pm 7/7/13

More sources have confirmed last night and today that there is a plea agreement being finalized. Whether agreeing to resign is part of the plea agreement or the obvious immediate result of it is uncertain, but I am becoming more convinced as I talk to more people that there is a plea agreement and the governor will resign.  It is a sad time for the commonwealth, the party, and someone who I and many others had regarded as the second best governor of the modern era.
