Former Gov. McDonnell: 'I Wouldn't Take Any Gifts' If I Could Do It Over

The former Virginia governor who accepted $177,000 from a local businessman in personal loans and expensive gifts in exchange for political favors said in a "60 Minutes" interview that aired Sunday that he would take it all back if he could.

Bob McDonnell appeared on the CBS show three years after he and his wife, Maureen, were indicted on corruption charges. He was found guilty but fought the case all the way to the Supreme Court, where his conviction was overturned because "setting up a meeting" or "hosting an event" for Jonnie Williams, the businessman, did not constitute a crime.

In other words, if he knew he was going to get caught, he wouldn't have done it. Most people in prison would say the same thing.
