RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell says he was “darn angry” when he found out state police asked his wife about the couple’s relationship to a vitamin entrepreneur.
McDonnell testified Friday he was told his wife Maureen had been asked to an interview with police in February of last year. Police wanted to talk about an investigation into the chef at the governor’s mansion for taking food out of the residence.
However, when McDonnell spoke to his wife after the interview, she was “very upset” and said police asked her about former Star Scientific Inc. CEO Jonnie Williams.
McDonnell says she told him they asked her about stock ownership in the company, loans and the governor’s financial disclosure statements.
McDonnell testified his second reaction was “one of concern for what they were doing.”
