Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) was shown smiling and holding a bottle of the dietary supplement Anatabloc in a photo revealed as evidence Friday in the 10th day of the federal corruption trial for the former governor and his wife.
The photo was originally posted to a Facebook page for Anatabloc, according to the Washington Post, which published the photo Friday as part of its ongoing coverage of the case. The newspaper reported that the former governor’s aides said McDonnell did not give the company permission to do at the time.
Anatabloc is a dietary supplement sold by Star Scientific Inc., the company whose former CEO is at the center of the corruption case for allegedly showering McDonnell and his wife with gifts and money while the former governor was in office.
