Former Gov. Bob McDonnell Found Guilty of Corruption Charges

September 4, 2014 | Adam Smith

Washington, D.C.–Every Voice released the following statement today in response to the conviction of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell on a series of corruption charges.

Statement from Every Voice President and CEO David Donnelly:

“A jury of everyday Virginians returned guilty verdicts against Governor Bob McDonnell and his wife today, but the trial also exposed how our broader campaign finance system breeds corruption. The whole system is guilty of putting a privileged few above average voters, and Virginia lawmakers and Governor Terry McAuliffe ought to get to work to bring some sanity back to the financing of Virginia politics.”
