Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell’s Political Career Likely ‘Over’ Because of Crony Capitalism

This is what happens when you don’t let conservative values rule your life.
Check it out:

Virginia Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell was on the short list for the 2012 vice presidential nomination, and it seemed like he would, at minimum, get a cabinet position the next time a Republican was elected to the White House.

Now, because he succumbed to the crony capitalism that has tempted and brought down so many politicians before him, his political career is likely done.

“The truth is his political career is over,” Stephen Farnsworth, a political science professor at the University of Mary Washington in Virginia, told the Washington Examiner. “This is a tragedy of Shakespearean proportions. McDonnell could’ve had it all. He would’ve been able to go into future elections with bipartisan accomplishments and [the] support of the religious right without being as scary as some other conservatives.”
