Gov. Bob McDonnell said Tuesday he plans to return all the gifts a donor supplied Virginia's first family — ending months of legal wrangling and a smattering of calls for his resignation.
"This represents an institutional failure by the legislative body in this commonwealth," he said. "We did nothing. We did nothing to follow up on this situation. In fact, we let the governor's personal chef be our one-man ethics department. And, frankly, that's pathetic."
He said the McDonnell indictment represented an "institutional failure" on the part of the state House and Senate.
