After three days of deliberations, the jury in the Trial of the Century of the Summer has reached a verdict for Bob and Maureen McDonnell on charges of corruption and bank and wire fraud and more fraud and more corruption. Guilty, guilty, guilty, and guilty some more. There were a couple things they weren't guilty of. Pretty much guilty though.


From the very beginning, yr Wonket has been taken in by the fairy tale of Bob and Maureen McDonnell, whose time as Richmond Royalty was marked by a strange sexless love triangle and new heights of gubernatorial griftiness. Their "friend," shifty tobacco peddler Jonnie Williams, kept Mrs. Governor Bob in ugly handbags and pastel dresses. The First Couple wallowed in luxury on Cape Cod and tooled around in Jonnie's Ferrari and all they had to do was let Jonnie have his snake oil coming-out party at the Governor's Mansion. What's so wrong with that? Can't friends who aren't really friends let each other use the credibility of each other's political offices anymore?

We here at the Political Grift Bureau will miss so much about this story: the endless soap opera details of Maureen's crush on Señor Snake Oil, the governor's relocation to a scandal-tarred priest's rectory, the betrayal of the mansion chef who Knew Too Much and reached out from beneath the bus to pull the McDonnells down with him.

Bob and Maureen will always have the memories, since the feds took all the toys.

UPDATE! We hear from our friends at ABC 8 News that the deposed governor "has been sobbing in the courtroom." We hope he remembered to swipe some fine linen napkins from the mansion kitchen to dry his eyes.

The McDonnells will be sentenced on Jan. 6, 2015, which means these dangerous convicts will be allowed to roam the streets of Richmond for FOUR MONTHS. Let's make sure they have some ankle monitors! They have access to all kinds of private planes and speedy luxury cars so clearly a FLIGHT RISK.

Corey Stewart, the Minnesota transplant to Virginia who's made protecting "Confederate Heritage" a top issue in his campaign for the US Senate, accused a nosy New York Times reporter of breaking into the apartment of one of his aides. It's a terrific accusation, because while there's no evidence at all and the story makes no damn sense, that doesn't matter at all to people who'd vote for Corey Stewart. They already hate the evil media and know those nasty reporters are capable of all the depravity in the world.

Hey, remember that hilarious time when Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy got caught on tape joking that LOL, Donald Trump and Congressman Dana Rohrabacher were totally on Putin's payroll? WaPo got the goods:

"There's two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump," McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016 exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a fervent defender of Putin and Russia.House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) immediately interjected, stopping the conversation from further exploring McCarthy's assertion, and swore the Republicans present to secrecy.

It's funny 'cause it's true! ALLEGEDLY. Earlier this month, Congressman Lubyanka Rohrabacher told Fox reporter Elex Michaelson that DNC hack was obviously an inside job.
