Just when we think the depths of the gifts scandal engulfing Gov. Bob McDonnell have been plumbed, new revelations emerge in the news media that further stain the governor’s once-unsullied reputation.

Heretofore, the scandal has involved mainly gifts of money and goods to the governor and his family from Jonnie Williams Sr., the CEO of dietary supplement maker Star Scientific. Vacations at his Smith Mountain Lake mansion. A Rolex watch bought for first lady Maureen McDonnell to give her husband. A high-dollar shopping trip in New York City for the first lady. Gifts to two McDonnell daughters to help pay for their weddings. “Loans” — sweetheart deals, really — to a real estate firm owned by the governor and his sister to help them deal with soured investments.
