McDonnell's "Inner Workings" With UVA Board of Visitors

Revealed during his testimon, it is now a possibility that former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell may have had “inner workings” with the UVA Board Of Visitors, specifically University of Virginia Vice Rector William Goodwin Jr.

On the witness stand Tuesday, McDonnell told the jury Goodwin sent him a letter asking him to reappoint his son-in-law, Robert Hardie, to the UVa Board of Visitors. McDonnell rejected the idea. Goodwin also paid for McDonnell’s family vacations.

However, it is important to McDonnell's defense because Goodwin toed the line as friend and donor to McDonnell, similar to how McDonnell viewed Star Scientific CEO Johnnie Williams.

He said he considered Goodwin to be a close, family friend, but when put on the spot during cross examination McDonnell couldn’t recall the names of Goodwin’s children.

McDonnell eventually appointed Goodwin to fill a position with the board. In May of the next year, the board elected Goodwin to serve as it’s vice rector.
