The FBI has begun examining the relationship between Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife Maureen and the chief executive of a nutritional supplements manufacturer that is the subject of a federal investigation, two people with knowledge of the review said Monday.
Federal authorities began questioning people close to the McDonnells as an outgrowth of a securities probe of Virginia-based Star Scientific Inc., said the two people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because their roles in the case preclude them from speaking publicly.

I take this brouhaha over McDonnell to be one of those attempts.
Because Virgina sure wouldn’t be interested in where Terry “Global Crossing” McAuliffe is getting his money ....
Let’s see Eric “The Red” Holder’s investigation of Obama’s failed green energy deals with multiple Democrat cronies. There are many to choose from, so why nit pick GOP governor?
That explains mcdonnell’s crash and burn. Now we need to figure what they have on Kasich, Toomey, and Rubio. If these Benzagi whistle blowers come through, I think we have our weapons to dismantle this political machine.
They have been friends for 5 years.
Democrats can’t throw stones so they brought in the FBI.
WTF is “newstimes.com”? The latest clone of Pravda?
Too bad McDonnell burned his bridges with Virginia TEA Party with his recent massive tax increases. Not much interest in defending him at this point, especially if he has become a corrupt RINO.
Look for Kaine’s fingerprints all over this political harassment
I wonder when there will be an investigation, or even the disclosure of such an investigation, into the recent high speed rail contract in california whose principal contractor just happened to be Feinstein’s husband’s company. Just a coincidence I am sure.
yeah exactly, these little thieving items are nothing compared to the utter corruption going on with the administration.
Pick a link, any link...
Oh, good, they have the FBI on the case. Well, it must be serious, because nobody knows corruption like Barky’s administration.
This is over a $15k catering bill for McDonnell’s daughter’s wedding. Also a couple trips to the donor’s lake home. He got dimed out by a chef who was fired for embezzling. As far as political corruption goes this is pretty timid stuff, but then we are talking about a potential Republican Presidential candidate so Team Barky (that includes the media) will have their fun.
Warner was the jerk who messed with the DMV and welcome stations when he was gov...
he’s a worm of the first order and needs to be shown the door when up for re-election.
But the VA Stoopid Party will find a way to blow that too.
