Federal prosecutors announced Thursday that they will not retry Republican former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell on public corruption charges, and will drop charges against his wife Maureen McDonnell. McDonnell was convicted on federal corruption charges in 2014 and sentenced to two years in prison. He remained free pending appeal, and this spring, the Supreme Court this year unanimously threw out his conviction. "Today is a great day in which my family and I rejoice. More than 3 1/2 years after learning of an investigation, the final day of vindication has arrived," McDonnell said.
