Virginia Delegate To Testify Before Grand Jury In McDonnell Case

A Virginia state delegate confirmed Sunday to the Washington Post that he’s been subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury investigating Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R), indicating publicly for the first time that a federal grand jury will be impanelled in McDonnell’s case.

Delegate David Ramadan (R), who told the Post that he was present at the wedding of McDonnell’s daughter Cailin, said he will appear before a grand jury in July to provide information relating to McDonnell and McDonnell’s wife Maureen. The Post had previously reported that FBI agents were investigating gifts that McDonnell campaign donors provided to the family, including a $15,000 catering bill for the wedding.
