The federal government has finally lowered the boom on former Gov. Bob McDonnell:
Former Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell and his wife Maureen were charged in federal court Tuesday with illegally accepting gifts, luxury vacations and large loans from a wealthy Richmond-area businessman who sought special treatment from state government.
The two were charged in connection with their relationship with dietary supplement executive Jonnie R. Williams Sr.
McDonnell intends to fight back:
McDonnell says he will use "every available resource and advocate I have for as long as it takes to fight these false allegations"
