First Lady Bought Star Scientific Stock In 2011

A spokesman for Governor Bob McDonnell’s legal team has confirmed that First Lady Maureen McDonnell bought Star Scientific stock in 2011. The “Washington Post” quotes Rich Galen as saying Mrs. McDonnell (pictured left) did not tell her husband of two purchases she made nearly two years ago to help her and her children. Over a three-year period, Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams contributed to McDonnell’s campaign and gave the Governor and his family┬ámany loans and gifts. McDonnell (pictured right) says he has now returned everything Williams gave him and his family.
