the wedding reception of the daughter of governor bob mcdonald two years ago, and that reception took place three days after mcdonald's wife maureen had flown to florida to promote this company's principal product at a corporate seminar. so that was -- seemed like a ratherred orather odd congruenc. the $15,000 donations was not disclosed. it was first reported in this ts story several weeks ago. ago. since then it has come out thatt there are other curious thingsts that haven't been disclosed about it. it. it has caused controversy. i wrote on the column basically saying i thought it was outrage outrageous in several ways. it's not just me, but both republicans and democrats have e
7:34 am
called to stricter gifts to politicians in virginia.irginia. there's a couple of thingsf that might be surprising about. first of all governor mcdonald has been scandal free, high marks for his time in office in virginia. it's a surprise n this is the the first significant controversy to arise over mcdonald regarding ra anything that smacks of imappropriateimpropriety.imp >> overall he has been seen as conservative, but basically a very earnest sort of almost wanky kind of politicians, poli certainly never had they never h reputation as a governor of being sort of slippery and thiss looks sort of slippery. >> wasn't surprising things isgs if you want to ask, were any any rules broken and all of thatf tt kind of thing? there aren't a whole lot off rules.
7:35 am
>> the rules are very weak in virginia on gift giving. givi >> you can give a gift to a politician in virginia. can you give as of money as you want to a politician, as long as it's diss cloughed. in this case it wasn't disclosed, and mcdonald's defense is that it wasn't -- the gift wasn't to him.t it was to his daughter, and herr husband as a wedding present. but a couple of things have come out of that that raise questions about that. most important thing is that as ity americaeit emerged by my cot the post. mcdonald put down the deposit di of almost $8,000 for the catering, and he signed theigne contract for the catering, and e he is saying, oh, this was just a gift to my daughter. daug >> right. >> well, he was involved in it, so the -- it's a little litt questionable about that.onable a but thboeut laws are extremely . i mean if it's a gift to a to a
7:36 am
family member, it doesn't havees to be disclosed. di even if it's a gift directly to the politician, as long as it'ss disclosed, you can give as muchh as you want. this guy from star scientific sn this isn't the only gift at all he has given more than -- he and the company have given more than $100,000 worth of the rides onrn the corporate jet to the mcdonald campaign when he rann for governor in 2009 and to his political action committee commi since. and in the last two years 96 --6 more than $9,600 worth of food, lodging and other direct gifts to the governor all of which whh have been disclosed. and interestingly, mcdonald mcda will not say, even though hehouh says he is open now to, you know, having tighter rules on disclosure of gifts to family members. he will not disclose whether orc not there have been other giftss to family members from williams
7:37 am
in addition to this money for ne the wedding reception? >> so that also raises eyebrowsy >> very briefly kim cutchineli.i his name has come up. up. >> it's the same company but a a different issue. the main issue is that he did not report when the -- two issues, he did not report thattt he had a stock holding in star r scientific when it went above av the threshold.ethre if you own $10,000 in stock, then you need to disclose it. he bought -- or he bought the bg stock on two or obtained stock k on two different occasions, andd when it went above the $10,000 threshold he didn't disclose it, but star scientific was involves with a legal dispute with theite state, and he is the attorney an general representing the state.t he did not recuse himself untill basically all of this, you know,
7:38 am
erupted and now he has recused himself. >> som e would say a little bit late. i want to mention that we did dd reach out to governor mcdonnell's office. he is on a trade trip to china a for 17 days, so it will be ae a while before we hear from him. you can read more on this at "the washington post." post >> , back to yo >> sasara back to how a trip to ann's house land pelanded justin bieber in t water.
