Read the 14-Count Indictment Against Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonell

My colleague Dahlia Lithwick is writing a fuller take on this—being that she's a legal analyst and Virginia resident, you should read what she comes up with. In the meantime, anyone can read the full indictment against the just-departed governor and first lady of Virginia, complete with text messages corraborating the gifts that they received, and with this forfeiture list:

The sum of not less than $140,805.46;
Black Rebecca Minkoff shoes;
Black Louis Vuitton shoes;
White Louis Vuitton shoes;
Cream Louis Vuitton purse;
Cream Louis Vuitton wallet;
Silver Rolex Watch engraved with "71s1 Governor of Virginia";
Yellow Peter Som dress;
Blue Armani jacket and two matching dresses;
Two Gold Oscar de la Renta dresses;
Black Louis Vuitton rain coat;
Gold Oscar de le Renta sweater;
One pair of Amelia Rose earrings;
One Gear sweatshirt;
Two pairs of Foot Joy golf shoes;
One button-down Ralph Lauren shirt;
One white Peter Millar golfshirt;
One baby blue striped Peter Millar golf shirt;
One royal blue Peter Millar golfshirt;
One aqua Fairway Greene Tech golf shirt;
One white striped Ralph Lauren golf shirt;
One Ping University of Virginia golf bag;
One Ping Kinloch golf bag;
One Sun Mountain Notre Dame golf bag;
Two sets of golf clubs;
One Heather Mackenzie water color and frame;
Two iPhones; and
30 boxes of Anatabloc®

The silver Rolex is the toughest loss, in my opinion. How many golf bags do you really need?
