The former Virginia Governor’s children are standing behind their father, while tossing Mom under the bus.

[su_center_ad]Former Gov. Bob McDonnell’s children are blaming their father’s downfall and conviction  on one person — their mother.

Seriously? What ever happened to the party of personal responsibility? It appears that Mrs. McDonnell is being probed by her own children. The couple were both grifting but no one forced that Rolex on the Governor’s wrist.

NBC 12 reports:

The children recently wrote a blunt letter to a federal judge, saying that former First Lady Maureen McDonnell’s materialism and mental health issues derailed her husband’s career.

The letters of support from the McDonnell children are part of a large collection put together by Bob McDonnell’s attorneys, who are seeking leniency at the upcoming sentencing set for Jan. 6.

Earlier this month, the former Governor’s son, Robert McDonnell, was arrested on a DWI charge.[su_csky_ad]

    To be completely fair about his sons DWI, I hear his mother was bartending that night so….

      That witch set him up then, right? /s

    • ShelleysLeg December 30th, 2014 at 3:14 pm

      Yep and forced him to drink more than he could handle, then handed him the car keys, called the po pos and told them which way he was coming.

    I’ll bet Maureen McDonnell is all for ‘retroactive birth control’, now.

      There isn’t a parent alive that hasn’t wished for that at one time or another

  3. Guy Lauten December 28th, 2014 at 6:05 pm

    Right, Maureen forced Bob to drive the Ferrari. Maureen forced Bob to wear the Rolex. Maureen forced Bob to send all those emails and make those meetings with Williams. Right. Sure. Not.

    Kids blaming Parents and Parents blaming kids.
    Kind of shows the entire family has mental issues .

    • mea_mark December 28th, 2014 at 6:20 pm

      Gonna blame it on mental issues are you, how right-wing, always avoid responsibility and blame something, anything.

      • whatthe46 December 28th, 2014 at 6:22 pm

        i hope he was being sarcastic about the mental issue. because it has nothing to do with it, just outright greed.

      • Sam December 28th, 2014 at 7:02 pm

        I am about as far from right wing as one can get.
        You are just mad I made a fool of you earlier today

        • mea_mark December 29th, 2014 at 8:51 am

          You didn’t make a fool of me. You are the one that doesn’t understand the meanings of words and makes assumptions.

          • Sam December 29th, 2014 at 10:03 am

            you are still making a fool of your self,
            OK,, be my quest,
            beside trolling about the BAT CRAP story which only you assumed…..
            you made the assumption I was a right winger,,,,,,
            ,HOW Foolish you look , ,,,,,,,,,,,,,AGAIN

    Looks like the nut didn’t fall far from the tree. I guess they are protecting the one who provides the connections.

    • Sam December 28th, 2014 at 6:17 pm

      Kids Blaming mom,,,I wonder if they talked to poor old dad while he was taking all the bribes or just enjoying the fame and extra income

    • uzza December 28th, 2014 at 7:49 pm

      In this case the little shits didn’t fall far from the asshole

  6. Obewon December 28th, 2014 at 6:26 pm

    Both Ma & ‘Trans Vaginal Bob’ McDonnell will be karmically probed before and after any in custody visits.

  7. ribbie149 December 28th, 2014 at 6:27 pm

    The kids are just protecting their source of money and influence.

    • rg9rts December 29th, 2014 at 8:31 am

      From jail?

  8. KABoink_after_wingnut_hacker December 28th, 2014 at 6:36 pm

    Follow the money and you’ll find unwavering loyalty.

  9. Carla Akins December 28th, 2014 at 6:41 pm

    Hard as I try, I am unable to work up a single iota of sympathy for anyone in this family.

  10. Bunya December 28th, 2014 at 6:53 pm

    Poor transvaginal Bob. He’s the real victim here. All these rich folks just kept forcing all this money and expensive items on him, no matter how hard he tried to refuse. It’s not his fault. It’s his wife and her “mental issues” that are to blame! It’s the fault of his “friends with benefits”! It’s the fault of his constituents! It’s Obama’s fault! It’s everybody’s fault – except poor, persecuted Bob. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

    • Candide Thirtythree December 29th, 2014 at 11:19 am

      Yep, typical republican and when he gets out, the low IQ voters will put him right back in office.

  11. majii December 28th, 2014 at 6:59 pm

    Hmph! None of the kids were pointing fingers at either parent when they were enjoying the beneifts Jonnie Williams provided to them. If they thought their mom was acting inappropriately when she cozied up to Williams, they should have spoken out loudly at that time. Imo, their blaming her for their dad’s downfall now is an example of too little, too late.

  12. William December 28th, 2014 at 7:02 pm

    I blame the dog.

    • edmeyer_able December 28th, 2014 at 7:40 pm

      So did the kids….ooops.

    • Bunya December 29th, 2014 at 11:55 am

      I KNEW I was forgetting someone(thing) who is to blame for all of transvaginal Bob’s woes. Thanks for reminding me.

  13. Larry Schmitt December 28th, 2014 at 9:13 pm

    McDonnell has no one to blame but himself. He was offered a plea, his lawyers advised him to take it, he would have got a light sentence, his wife would have gone free, but he thought he knew better, so now he has a few years in pound-me-in-the-ass prison. (I love me some Office Space references)

    • whatthe46 December 29th, 2014 at 1:35 am

      he’ll be in protective custody. sigh. but, the upside is, he’ll hear the slamming of the iron bars, being told when he can shower, walk outside, etc. for a long time. oh yeah, and no steaks. lol

      • ShelleysLeg December 30th, 2014 at 3:12 pm

        And no Rolexes or fancy cars to ‘borrow’ either!! I’m weeping with delight here.

        And those ungrateful brats prolly think Daddy will leave them money whereas Mommy has none. Follow the money!

    Ahhh, lovely, the party of “Family Values”

  15. rg9rts December 29th, 2014 at 8:31 am

  16. Kim Serrahn December 29th, 2014 at 5:19 pm

    No way it could be his fault.
