Rick Santorum on Sunday said that even if prosecutors don’t prove that former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) conducted illegal activity while in office, accepting large gifts as a politician is “not okay” ethically.

“I don’t know how you could think you could take any of this, I mean, even if there is no quid pro quo. And maybe that’s the law in Virginia, you’re allowed to accept gifts, and that’s okay,” he said on ABC’s “This Week.” “But it’s not okay.”

McDonnell and his wife were charged Tuesday with illegally accepting gifts and loans form a political donor.
