RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A Virginia Beach radiologist who loaned $50,000 to a real estate company owned by Governor Bob McDonnell and his sister was subsequently offered an appointment to a state medical board, but he turned it down.

Paul Davis tells The Washington Post he has been friends with McDonnell for more than a decade. He says he believes the appointment offer was unrelated to the loan he gave MoBo Real Estate Partners in 2010.

Davis declined the appointment to focus on his medical practice.

Unlike loans and gifts to McDonnell and his family from another Virginia businessman that are at the center of state and federal investigations, the loan from Davis appears to have been reported on McDonnell's required annual financial disclosures.

Davis says the company repaid the loan in 2012.
