Richmond, VA ( – Maureen McDonnell has taken the stand as the McDonnell defense case continues on.  However, it is Maureen McDonnell, Bob McDonnell's sister, not Maureen McDonnell, Bob McDonnell's wife.


Ms. McDonnell testified the former first lady had two sides:  tender and manipulative.  She says she was driven to tears, on occasion, by the First Lady.  But the Mrs. McDonnell also helped the Governor's mother as she approached her final days.


Maureen McDonnell (the sister) also testified about the real estate corporation she had with her brother.  She says the properties were losing money, but that the situation was not dire.  She also says she had the money to cover losses.
