Former Gov. Bob McDonnell, Wife Indicted

VIDEO -  RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife have been indicted on federal corruption charges.
 
     Peter Carr, a spokesman for the U.S. Justice Department, says McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, were indicted Tuesday. The 14-count indictment includes conspiracy, wire fraud and other charges.
 
     McDonnell left office earlier this month after four years in the governor's office. Virginia law limits governors to a single term.
 
     A federal investigation overshadowed the final months in office for this once-rising star of the Republican Party, with authorities looking into gifts he and his family received from a political donor.
 
     In July, McDonnell apologized and said he had returned more than $120,000 in loans and other gifts from Johnnie Williams, the CEO of pharmaceutical company Star Scientific.
