Virginia Governor refuses to comment on published report

RICHMOND (WVVA) -- Virginia Governor Bob McDonnel is refusing to comment on a published report that he accepted a Rolex watch worth more than $6,000 from a campaign donor.

The Governor cited ongoing federal and state criminal investigations in his reasoning for talking about it.

According to a Washington Post report, the watch was purchased by Jonnie Williams. Williams is Chief Executive for Star Scientific Inc., a nutritional supplement maker.

McDonnel did say a Richmond prosecutor is reviewing his required economic disclosure forms and would amend them if needed.
