Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell Throws Wife Under The Bus
Attorneys for Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, will spend Monday locked in separate hours-long meetings trying to convince federal prosecutors that the first couple should not be charged in the gifts scandal that has dominated state politics.
As the scandal has shined an uncomfortable spotlight on the governor’s marriage, McDonnell’s side has conveyed to authorities that his wife often purposely kept him in the dark about the largess she was accepting from Williams, according to a person familiar with the investigation.

5. Hoo boy!
I can hardly wait for the fallout from this accusation. First, what a frickin' coward Bob is (who throws his wife under the bus like this, except for complete assholes?), and second, how good old Maureen is going to react to this. I think her next talk with a lawyer will be with a divorce lawyer.
They're both dirty, and it looks like neither has the courage to admit what they did. Typical "it's his/her fault!1!!1" republicans. It's a treat to watch.
