Richmond commonwealth’s attorney Mike Herring is looking into gifts to Gov. Bob McDonnell in an investigation requested by Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli. The story is here.
Cuccinelli sent a letter last November to Richmond Commonwealth’s Attorney Michael Herring appointing him to review McDonnell’s statements of economic interest, on which state officials are required to disclose gifts and investments.
Cuccinelli himself neglected to disclose gifts from Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams, whose company is disputing a $1.7 million tax bill from the state, as well as his investments in the company, including one made after Star sued the state.
