Richmond, VA (1140wrva.com) – Former McDonnell Deputy Chief of Staff Matt Conrad, from questioning by her own lawyers, revealed on the stand that there were rumors Maureen McDonnell was hoarding gifts. Conrad says those gifts would have had to have been disclosed.
Conrad's appearance on the stand was followed by a Star Scientific executive, Paul Perito. Perito says he was unaware Jonnie Williams was loaning the McDonnell's money. He says Williams was also surprised that they were able to secure the mansion for the now infamous 2011 launch event for Anatabloc.
The former first couple faces 14 counts tied to the gift-giving scandal.
