Read the 14-Count Indictment Against Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonell

My colleague Dahlia Lithwick is writing a fuller take on this—being that she’s a legal analyst and Virginia resident, you should read what she comes up with. In the meantime, anyone can read the full indictment against the just-departed governor and first lady of Virginia, complete with text messages corraborating the gifts that they received, and with this forfeiture list:

The sum of not less than $140,805.46;

Black Rebecca Minkoff shoes;

Black Louis Vuitton shoes;


White Louis Vuitton shoes;

Cream Louis Vuitton purse;

Cream Louis Vuitton wallet;

Silver Rolex Watch engraved with “71s1 Governor of Virginia”;

Yellow Peter Som dress;

Blue Armani jacket and two matching dresses;

Two Gold Oscar de la Renta dresses;

Black Louis Vuitton rain coat;

Gold Oscar de le Renta sweater;


One pair of Amelia Rose earrings;

One Gear sweatshirt;

Two pairs of Foot Joy golf shoes;

One button-down Ralph Lauren shirt;

One white Peter Millar golfshirt;

One baby blue striped Peter Millar golf shirt;

One royal blue Peter Millar golfshirt;

One aqua Fairway Greene Tech golf shirt;

One white striped Ralph Lauren golf shirt;

One Ping University of Virginia golf bag;

One Ping Kinloch golf bag;

One Sun Mountain Notre Dame golf bag;

Two sets of golf clubs;

One Heather Mackenzie water color and frame;

Two iPhones; and

30 boxes of Anatabloc®

The silver Rolex is the toughest loss, in my opinion. How many golf bags do you really need?
