Va. First Lady Allegedly Received Gifts from Star Scientific CEO

June 25, 2013

Virginia First Lady Maureen McDonnell may have received some gifts of her own from Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams.

The Richmond-Times Dispatch reports that Maureen McDonnell flew to New York in the spring of 2011, and was treated to a high-end shopping spree by Williams,

During the trip, Williams reportedly bought her a $10,000 suede jacket, among other designer items.

Governor Bob McDonnell's Office has not commented on the trip, and Virginia law does not require him to report gifts to his wife.

The FBI is currently investigating the relationship between Williams and Governor McDonnell.
