      McDonnell Speaks About FBI Investigation, 'Gift Was for Daughter'

      Richmond, VA - Governor Bob McDonnell said Thursday that he always viewed a $15,000 check from a political backer to pay for catering at his daughter's wedding as a gift to his daughter.

      He says he felt no need under the law to report it because it wasn't to him.

      McDonnell was on WRVA radio Thursday morning, saying some sort of ethics and disclosure reform is likely.

      The FBI is now looking into the relationship McDonnell and his family have with Star Scientific.

      Its CEO wrote the wedding gift check.
