The Thursday session of the Bob and Maureen McDonnell trial included testimony from Virginia’s top health figure, Dr. Bill Hazel, who voiced skepticism about the star witness for the prosecution, and his claims about the dietary supplement Anatabloc. Hazel says he met with Jonnie Williams in 2010 at the request of Former Governor McDonnell, and referred to Williams’ product as “Anatabuse”. Hazel says he asked not to be seated next to Williams at a reception because he thought it would be a very long evening. The first witness of the day was Sarah Scarbrough, the former director of the Governor’s Mansion (pictured). She referred to Maureen McDonnell as “sneaky” and declared it was “her way or the highway”. She testified that Bob McDonnell worshipped the ground his wife walked on and frequently kissed her on the cheek. She also admitted telling investigators that theirs was not the healthiest of marriages, and that the former first couple lacked good communication skills.
