My concern is, how do these scandals effect Ken Cuccinelli? It’s hard to believe that his staff kept the knowledge of these scandals involving Star Scientific secret from the Attorney General. The Washington Post’s timeline of the Attorney General’s involvement with Star Scientific doesn’t look good.
It’s hard to believe that Governor McDonnell, our former Attorney General, was so careless with these ‘gifts’ from a major donor with business before the state. How could he throw away his political future like this? Over a Rolex watch and chance to drive a Masserati and some new clothes for the wife?
Bill Bolling’s dream of being Governor may soon be realized. And then what? Will he run in November? And what happens to Ken Cuccinelli’s candidacy?
