RICHMOND, Va. (AP) The woman who ran the governor's mansion under Bob McDonnell said the governor worshipped the ground his wife walked on during the time she worked with them.

Sarah Scarbrough, a family friend of the McDonnells, served as mansion director for much of the governor's four-year term. She testified Thursday at the corruption trial of Bob and Maureen McDonnell.

Her testimony that the McDonnells appeared to be in love undercuts an argument by the defense that the marriage had deteriorated to the point that the couple rarely communicated, much less engaged in a criminal conspiracy.

The McDonnells are charged with accepting more than $165,000 in gifts and secret loans from former Star Scientific Inc. CEO Jonnie Williams in exchange for promoting his dietary supplement products.
