Richmond, VA ( – Former Governor Bob McDonnell, and First Lady Maureen McDonnell, have final gotten the chance to put on their defense.  The defense attorneys have focused early on the couple's relationship, as well as the Governor's interactions with a bookkeeper, suggesting the Governor was not hiding loans.


The lawyers are arguing, however, to one fewer juror.  A juror was excused over the weekend because of a family emergency.  This leaves just one alternate juror remaining on the case.


Bob McDonnell is expected to testify in his own defense.
