RICHMOND, Va. (AP)-- McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, are charged with taking more than $165,000 in loans and gifts from former Star Scientific Inc. CEO Jonnie Williams in exchange for touting Star's tobacco-based health supplement, Anatabloc.

Bob McDonnell's lawyer, Henry Asbill, said the government's case has a gaping hole: McDonnell never did anything on Williams' behalf, other than put him touch with people in his administration.

McDonnell took the stand in his own defense, and said what he did for Williams was no different than what he would do on behalf of any Virginia-based business. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
