Governor to Resign?
Ouch. To think people wanted him to run for President.
Check it out:
Late Saturday evening and early Sunday morning, the communications director for embattled Virginia Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell denied a report on a prominent Virginia politics blog that McDonnell was finalizing plans to resign from office.
McDonnell has come under fire for potentially having violated the state’s ethics laws by not reporting a Rolex watch valued at around $6,000 when laws require him to report any gift valued over $50. McDonnell’s office has claimed the gift was from a “personal friend” and thus not in violation of the state’s ethics laws.
Bearing Drift, one of the most respected and indispensable sites on Virginia politics, reported on Saturday night that two independent sources said McDonnell is “currently in the middle of finalizing a plea agreement which includes his resignation as governor.” Bearing Drift also reported “multiple more sources confirming plea agreement is definitely being finalized.”
