Putting the "Ola" After the Pay
How much do we love American politics?
Case in point: The upcoming trial of former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell and his lovely wife, Maureen.
In case you missed it, they are alleged to have accepted about $160,000 in gifts from the CEO of Star Scientific which is a company based in Virginia that makes dietary supplements. You know they didn't get those presents just because they're wonderful. No, they had to do stuff for the company, political favors and all that.
What prezzies did they receive?
Oh, a private jet, golf outings, cash, a really expensive watch, vacations, etc.
We hear his lovely Maureen isn't really all that. She apparently was the driving force behind the greed.
