Date Set in Chef's Embezzlement Case

May 15, 2013

A Richmond judge has set a trial date for the felony embezzlement case of former Executive Mansion chef Todd Schneider, who is accused of stealing food from the residence. 

Schneider also catered the wedding of Governor McDonnell’s daughter, and his descriptions of the relationships between Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams, the McDonnell family, and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli have prompted new investigations but no new charges. 

More than 13,000 Republicans are preparing to gather in Richmond for their state nominating convention that begins on Friday. 

They will choose their nominees for Lieutenant Governor and
Attorney General—and given the large field, many say it’s been challenging to select only one for each office. 

In the last installment of our election series on the statewide candidates, we meet the final contender, Susan Stimpson—who is one of two women vying for Lieutenant Governor.


 

We continue today with our election series on the statewide candidates with a focus on the crowded GOP Lieutenant Governor's race.
