According to evidence presented Tuesday, former Gov. Bob McDonnell’s wife sent text messages claiming exclusive credit for securing loans from a Virginia businessman whose largesse toward the couple is at the heart of their public corruption trial. In one text presented by the former governor’s defense team, Maureen McDonnell expresses anger that her husband appears to be getting credit for arranging the deal, which the McDonnells sought for their side business of renting vacation homes in Virginia Beach. The McDonnells are charged in federal court with accepting more than $165,000 in gifts and loans from former Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams in exchange for promoting his company’s tobacco-based dietary supplement.
