U.S. top court overturns Virginia ex-governor’s Robert McDonnell’s corruption conviction (Youtube-Clip)

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday (June 27) threw out Republican former Virginia Governor Robert McDonnell’s corruption convictions in a ruling that could hem in federal prosecutors as they go after bribery charges against other politicians. The court ruled 8-0 in overturning McDonnell’s conviction for accepting $177,000 in luxury gifts and sweetheart loans for him and his wife from a wealthy Richmond businessman seeking to promote a dietary supplement.
