McDonnell children's letters place blame on Maureen
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Former Gov. Bob McDonnell's children are speaking out, saying their father's downfall and conviction can be blamed on one person -- their mother.
The children recently wrote a blunt letter to a federal judge, saying that former First Lady Maureen McDonnell's materialism and mental health issues derailed her husband's career.
The letters of support from the McDonnell children are part of a large collection put together by Bob McDonnell's attorneys, who are seeking leniency at the upcoming sentencing set for Jan. 6.
