Sources: FBI Looking Into Relationship Between Virginia Governor, Campaign Donor

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. - Two people close to a federal investigation of a nutritional supplements manufacturer say the FBI is examining the relationship the company and its chief executive have with Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife.
    
The people asked not to be identified because their roles in the case preclude them from speaking publicly. They said Monday that the FBI began questioning people close to the McDonnells as an outgrowth of a securities probe of Virginia-based Star Scientific Inc.
    
They said questions have focused on gifts the McDonnells have received from company CEO Jonnie Williams. Court documents show Williams paid $15,000 toward catering for the governor's daughter's wedding in June 2011.
    
A spokesman for McDonnell did not immediately return messages seeking comment. An FBI spokeswoman refused to comment Monday night.
