Ex-Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, Wife Guilty of Public Corruption

Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, were found guilty of public corruption and face decades in prison. They will be sentenced on January 6, the Washington Post reports.

A federal jury found Bob McDonnell, a one-time rising star in the Republican Party, guilty on 11 counts, and his wife guilty on nine counts. The couple was accused of taking lavish vacations, gifts, golf outings and $120,000 in sweetheart loans from a Richmond businessman, Jonnie R. Williams Sr.

Bob McDonnell is the first governor in Virginia’s history to be charged with a crime and to be convicted of one.

McDonnell was acquitted of lying on loan documents. His wife was also acquitted of lying on a loan document, but among the nine charges she was convicted with, obstruction of justice was one.

Virginia Attorney General on McDonnell verdict: ‘We have a long way to go to restore the public’s trust after this embarrassing and difficult period for the Commonwealth of Virginia. If there was somehow still any doubt, it should be crystal clear that the people of Virginia deserve real ethics reform that will turn off the spigot of gifts, tickets, and trips that opens the door to abuse and undermines public confidence in our government’ – @MarkHerringVA

Walnut Creek CA police officer Gregory Thompson is accused of beating a woman with a baseball bat while wearing a mask on August 16. Another rogue cop who is breaking the very law he is in charge of upholding.

Neighbor Jason Peneyra said, “Police came knocking on our doors. They were looking for a suspect.” Richmond police said they found Thompson sitting in his car. He identified himself as an officer of the law, but investigators found a mask lying in the floorboard of the vehicle and a baseball bat in the trunk.

“It’s alarming for a police officer to do that,” said Peneyra to KTVU. “That’s weird. That’s really weird.” Richmond Police Capt. Bisa French said, “We don’t have a motive in this case, but we’re looking at the possibility this was mistaken identity, or someone else was supposed to be targeted. We just don’t know.”

Neighbors said that Thompson’s parents own a house in the neighborhood that is currently standing empty. They said they have noticed broken windows in the property and other minor acts of vandalism. If that’s the case, Culver said, “You call the police, you don’t take matters into your own hands and act violently.”

Gregory Thompson is a 30-year veteran of the Walnut Creek Police Department. He was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and vandalism.
