(Richmond, VA) -- Maureen McDonnell's chief of staff is on the witness stand in the corruption trial of the former first lady and her husband, former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell. Mary-Shea Sutherland testified today in Richmond that Mrs. McDonnell seemed to have a romantic relationship with her husband. That runs counter to defense claims that the ex-first lady had a "crush" on former Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams, the prosecution's star witness in the case.
Prosecutors say Williams received the prestige of the governor's office in exchange for giving the McDonnells expensive gifts and large loans.
