Richmond Prosecutor Will Examine Governor’s Economic Statements

A Democratic prosecutor will sift through the past economic statements by Governor McDonnell. Richmond Commonwealth’s Attorney Michael Herring will look into the relationship of Governor McDonnell (pictured) and his wife and a Virginia businessman. Jonnie Williams, Jr. and Star Scientific have donated thousands of dollars to the Governor’s political action committee and gave expensive gifts to the Governor and his family. The Attorney General would normally be in charge of this type of investigation. Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is letting Herring handle the matter.
