The Washington Post is reporting that Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams gave a corporation owned by Governor Bob McDonnell and his sister $70,000, and the Governor did not disclose the money as a gift or a loan.

The Post reports that people familiar the transaction say that the Governor viewed the payments as loans, not gifts, to his real estate venture.

That brings the total amount given by Williams to the McDonnells to $145,000.

State law requires that elected official disclose their personal loans but not loan made to their corporate interests.
