Who obviously kicked him to the curb this year in a very un-Clausy move.
The curb had cameras (2014 here).
I've been enjoying the footage of the Fall of McDonnell, aka Governor Vagina Police, all day. I did not know that Virginia encourages the antiquated, sexist 'crush' defense that incriminates your wife.
Morning media today totally enjoyed divulging more and more dirt for Old McDonnell to bury himself in. Chuck Todd updated an eager audience on MSNBC, and continued to compare this bit of greed with a House of Cards season, video below.
McDonnell was rescued by the Falwell family, good ole' political religionists teaching their worst traits to generations of extreme religiosity … shaping the Regressive Right Christian way.
"Gov. McDonnell will add another dimension to the educational experience of Liberty students by teaching leadership,” bragged Liberty President and Chief Christian on Campus, Jerry Falwell Jr., son of Jerry Sr.
He achieved great success as governor in making Virginia one of the nation’s most business-friendly and fiscally sound states while getting people to work together for the common good. These experiences uniquely qualify him to teach our students about every aspect of serving in public office.
McDonnell was well received at Liberty, as you might expect!
Morning Joe Schmoe, absent Joe, and featuring Morning Mika, gave the McDonnell clan some early bird mockery with details that needed divulging.
By now most Virginians should sensibly note that McAuliffe is a vast improvement over Old McDonnell. He's probably got that Vitamin Lothario, Jimmie Williams, banned from the region. The Washington Post ran this:
The federal government’s decision to use these deceitful tactics in order to prosecute a popular and successful Republican Governor immediately upon his leaving office is disgraceful, violates basic principles of justice, and is contemptuous of the citizens of Virginia who elected him,” McDonnell’s attorneys wrote.
