In the corruption trial of former governor Bob McDonell, a wealthy businessman who says his relationship with Virginia's former governor was all about business, sent text messages or called the governor's wife more than 1,200 times over the course of two years.
A defense attorney in the corruption trial of former Republican Governor Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, raised the issue of the frequent texting today in his cross-examination of Jonnie Williams. Williams is testifying under immunity for the prosecution.
Attorney Bill Burck also showed an email Maureen McDonnell allegedly sent to Williams the day an earthquake hit Virginia. It said, "I just felt the EARTH MOVE AND I WASN'T HAVING SEX!!!!"
The McDonnells are charged with taking more than $165,000 in gifts and loans from Williams in exchange for promoting his company's products.
