Ferraris, Rolexes And A Shopping
Spree: Inside The Extravagant Life
Of Bob McDonnell And His Wife

ABC News, by Arlette Saenz

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/22/2014 4:16:52 AM

Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, liked to live large. The couple was indicted in a federal court on Tuesday on federal corruption charges for allegedly illegally accepting dozens of expensive gifts and donations from a wealthy friend. The indictment alleges that the McDonnells used the governor’s position to try to help Jonnie Williams, the CEO of dietary supplement company Star Scientific, in exchange for lavish gifts and donations. The former governor, who left office earlier this month, maintains he did nothing illegal in his interactions with Williams. Many of the indictment’s most shocking details focus on the activities

As with most stories on this the reporter fails to note in the first hundred words, that the governor & his wife are Democrats.

Me too...I´ve engaged the enter button before confirming what I was about to push forever into the inner web was factual. They are both pubbies and he was thinking of a run for the big job in 2016. He say´s they did nothing wrong and the DOJ is overreaching. Anything the idiot in charge of DOJ does, to me, is overreaching and sometimes illegal. I just hope and pray Holder and his boss, at some point, are called to justice. As for McDonnell and his Wife, what a couple of boobs. I don´t care if what they did was "legal." It sure smacks of illegal with a touch of stupidity to boot.

I noticed in a couple articles I read about the former governor that his party was not mentioned. That practice usually means democrat. But then I realized that if he were a democrat there would be no articles at all.

How sad that his wife wanted to keep up with the "Jones" and he went along with it. Being a lawyer, he should have known better. He was a good Gov. Maybe he will end up being President or Sec. of State. (Tongue in cheek) They used the Ark. Governor´s office for lots of things not in their budget. She "wisely" invested $1000 in futures and made $100,000. Did the owner of Tyson Foods help her? Hmmmmm? What about her billing records at her law firm and Whitewater? Hmmmm. What about her best friend having to go to jail? Hmmm. What about the cost of Bubba´s trysts and troopers? Be careful that the rocks you throw don´t come back to hit you.

U.S. Senate candidate Matt Bevin spent the week defending his decision last weekend to attend an event in Corbin, Ky., that most attendees knew was a rally to legalize cockfighting in Kentucky. Bevin has said he didn´t know it was a rally supporting cockfighting and thought it was a "state´s rights" rally. After ducking other calls for comment, Bevin went on WHAS radio´s "Terry Meiners Show" on Thursday to talk about the rally, cockfighting and other things. "I´ve never been to a cockfight, I don´t condone cockfighting, but here´s the thing: I´m not going to disparage people for exercising their First Amendment rights,"

She was known as Katie, a pretty, popular girl from a well-respected Rhode Island family. In high school, she excelled at music and art and worshipped David Bowie. As a freshman at Suffolk University, she majored in communications, and she and a gaggle of friends modeled themselves after the girls on “Sex and the City.” She thought about joining the Peace Corps. That was before 2010, when she met the man she’d drop out of school to marry, the man for whom she’d convert to Islam, the man who, three years later, would leave her with a baby daughter and the threat

Juan Williams Clashes with Eric Bolling:

The tragic Fort Hood shooting this week reignited the debate over shootings in gun-free zones and whether gun-free zones are generally more prone to this kind of horrible violence. On Cashin’ In Saturday morning, Eric Bolling and Juan Williams tussled over mental health and the gun culture, with Williams saying, “I think we need America to be a gun-free zone.” Jonathan Hoenig and Wayne Rogers agreed the problem is more about “seriously deranged people” as opposed to guns.

SANTA FE, N.M. — In late February, four federal agents carrying side arms with a drug-sniffing dog descended on the Taos Ski Valley in what was called a “saturation patrol.” Authorities were working on tips of possible drug selling and impaired driving in the ski resort’s parking lot and surrounding area. But the agents weren’t from the FBI, ATF, or even the Drug Enforcement Administration. Rather, the agents represented the U.S. Forest Service. “It’s one of the untold stories about government,” said former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, who lives in Taos, is an avid skier and has been a leading critic of

The Indianapolis Star has the story of an unusual and aggressive action by the FBI: FBI agents Wednesday seized “thousands” of cultural artifacts, including American Indian items, from the private collection of a 91-year-old man who had acquired them over the past eight decades. An FBI command vehicle and several tents were spotted at the property in rural Waldron, about 35 miles southeast of Indianapolis. The Rush County man, Don Miller, has not been arrested or charged.(Snip)Right now, there appears to be no evidence that Miller has done anything illegal.

Ross Perot once promised to run the federal government like a business. A good idea. Perhaps the business it should be run like is Mozilla. If so, that would leave fellow 1990s throwback — and current 2016 Democratic presidential frontrunner — Hillary Clinton out of the White House. She and Perot can appear together in “Where Are They Now” features instead. You will recall that Mozilla, the makers of Firefox, gave CEO Brendan Eich the boot over a single $1,000 contribution to Proposition 8. That was a 2008 ballot initiative that said simply, “Only marriage between a man and a woman is

Democrats pray for economic spring

This was supposed to be the year the U.S. economy would finally break out of the doldrums — the year it would deliver the kind of robust growth that could lift President Barack Obama’s dismal approval ratings and help Democrats avoid a shellacking in November. It now looks like that dream is fading fast. So far, it’s been easy to dismiss weak economic news as the result of an awful winter. But those excuses ended with Friday’s March jobs report, the first of spring, which showed a lower than expected gain of 192,000 — Wall Street traders were looking for something

I was recently invited to speak at the annual Conservative Leadership Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina, a regional red-meat gathering of the conservative faithful trying to help Republicans win back control of the government. Since I’m neither a conservative nor a Republican—nor faithful, for that matter, as I am a rather unabashed atheist—you might wonder what I was doing there. I’ll give you the same answer I gave the conference attendees. To have any hope of becoming a majority party, you ought to take a page from libertarians trying to make common cause with Republicans by focusing on economic freedom

“Hello, I’m Johnny Cash.” The signature greeting of one of country music’s most iconic performers was hardly needed to introduce him to his audience. The mileage on his face, the dark garb he wore on his body, and the underdog quality on his vinyl more readily identified Johnny Cash. Robert Hilburn’s Johnny Cash: The Life does little to disabuse the fans of their conflation of the public persona with the private person: the man in black was not sunshine off the stage. But if the new biography describes a man that fans intuitively know even before hitting page one, Hilburn gives

Rumors are floating around Twitter that proof of Brendan Eich’s donation was illegally leaked by people in government sympathetic to the cause of gay marriage. Not so. I’d forgotten about it, but friends reminded me that the LA Times obtained a list of people who gave, for and against, to the fight over the Prop 8 referendum in 2008. They put the whole database online and made it searchable. Search it today and, sure enough, there’s Eich with a $1,000 donation in favor. Under California law, that disclosure is perfectly legal: The state is authorized to provide certain personal information

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert has signed off on a partial fix to the state´s controversial adoption law, in a bid to close a loophole allowing women from other states to give birth and put their babies up for adoption in Utah -- without the knowledge or consent of the biological father. The bill, Adoption Act Amendments, was sponsored by Utah state Sen. Todd Weiler. He told Fox News: "It sends a strong message that Utah respects fathers´ rights and will not allow its laws to be used to perpetuate fraudulent adoptions." The bill would require a biological mother to live in Utah

The Republican Governors Association raised $23.5 million during the first three months of 2014, the organization will announce Thursday. It´s a record haul for the RGA, which is chaired by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R). The RGA has nearly $60 million in the bank, money it will need as it seeks to defend 22 seats compared to just 14 for Democrats. Most of the money the RGA raised came from the group´s 527 arm, which hauled in more than $22 million. The 501(c)(4) affiliate raised $1.3 million.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

In Dearborn, Mich., home to over 40,000 Americans of Arab descent, some Muslim parents have complained about flyers handed out at public schools advertising an Easter egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press. Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools.

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep.
