The relationship between Governor Bob McDonnell and Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams is at the center of state and federal investigations with allegations of improper gifts from Williams to McDonnell.

Governor Bob McDonnell holds interest in millions of dollars of real estate and one property, a home previously occupied by his daughter and son-in-law, is now being rented by him to a state employee he hand-picked for the job.
