Monday brought the good news that former Governor Bob McDonnell would be allowed to remain free pending his appeals process (see Appeals court says McDonnell can remain free pending appeal).
Updated with this statement from Governor McDonnell:
“I am grateful for today’s ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit allowing me to remain free on bond pending my appeal. I plan to spend time with my new granddaughter who was born this month, attend my sons’ graduation ceremonies, and embrace family time with my daughters. I want to thank my family, friends and legal team for their tireless support and unwavering belief in my innocence.”
Shortly after that news broke, the Restoration Fund released additional information about the appeals process and how McDonnell’s lawyers have working to vindicate a good man. The Restoration Fund was set up for those who wanted to provide financial assistance for the hugely expensive legal process of battling the federal government.
