McDonnell Will Not Resign

Rumors about Governor Bob McDonnell resigning are false. That’s the word on Twitter from the governor’s spokesman, Tucker Martin. The conservative blog Bearing Drift claimed McDonnell is planning to resign, but Martin denies that. Martin stated “Governor Bob McDonnell is not resigning. That is official. Irresponsible rumors are wrong.” UVA political analyst Larry Sabato told the “Virginian Pilot” newspaper that while Tucker Martin normally does not comment on rumors, he decided it was so widespread a rumor that he felt the need to go on Twitter.
