Bearing Drift rumor: McDonnell to resign . . .
Republican-leaning blog Bearing Drift is claiming to have knowledge of a plea bargain being negotiated between Governor Bob McDonnell and law enforcement officials. The alleged bargain includes McDonnell's resignation as Governor of Virginia. I have to stress that at this point this is nothing more than a rumor on a Republican blog, posted late at night and could easily be a hoax.
Now we have to wait for this rumor to be confirmed or denied. Is Bob McDonnell really about to resign?
If true, what could this mean? "Schapiro: What if McDonnell were out of his job — now?"
McDonnell spokesman Tucker Martin is denying McDonnell's alleged resignation.
