McDonnell Says His Daughter Returned $15K Wedding Gift

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) said Wednesday morning that his daughter has returned the $15,000 gift given to her by donor and Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams Sr. that paid for catering at her 2011 wedding, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

This announcement comes a day after the embattled governor said that he plans to return all gifts he received from Williams.

McDonnell also said Tuesday that his other daughter had already returned the $10,000 wedding present Williams gave her.

Correction: Jonnie Williams Sr. is Star Scientific’s CEO, not CFO. We regret the error.
