Virginia law does not prohibit gifts of the sort accepted by Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his family.
Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell says that his daughter has returned the $15,000 check that Star Scientific chief executive Jonnie Williams gave her for her wedding two years ago.
The governor is under federal and state investigations for the relationship Williams has with Virginia's first family and the thousands of dollars' worth of gifts they received from Williams. McDonnell had announced Tuesday he plans to return all gifts still in the family's possession.
That includes a $6,500 Rolex watch, 28-year-old Cailin's wedding gift and a $10,000 check to McDonnells' eldest daughter, 32-year-old Jeanine, for her May wedding that has already been returned to Williams.
McDonnell told reporters he hasn't calculated the total value of the gifts being returned to Williams or settled on a timetable for returning the gifts.
