Gov. McDonnell gifts: Get over it.Conservatives are proving to be very good at joining their liberal counterparts in taking part in the court of public opinion without even hearing from the Governor's side. Last I heard, in America we are innocent until proven guilty....
Governor Bob McDonnell broke no laws and didn't do anything we can find that is legally unethical or in conflict with Virginia's very liberal gift laws. If you don't like it, change the laws. But don't impugne the Governor. Did he exercise poor judgment? That is speculative. Did he break any laws? From what we have seen so far: no, he did not. So right now, this amounts to a hill of beans, although we acknowledge the depth of different gifts is reaching critical mass. Should he resign? That is his personal decision, but certainly not over this nonsense.
