Former AGs call for dismissal of corruption charges against Bob McDonnell

Democratic and Republican attorneys general from Virginia are calling for dismissal of corruption charges against former Governor Bob McDonnell. Reporter Olympia Meola with the Richmond Times-Dispatch wrote:
Democrats Andrew P. Miller, Mary Sue Terry and Stephen D. Rosenthal join Republicans J. Marshall Coleman and Mark L. Earley in the filing, arguing that the “expansive interpretation of federal law” on which counts 1-11 are based “is completely alien to any legal advice that any of us would have given to any governor of Virginia.”
Earlier this week the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers called for dismissal of 11 of the 14 charges, citing that federal prosecutors are overstepping in a state issue.
