BREAKING: Cuccinelli Questioned By Fed Investigators over His Ties to Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams

September 11, 2013

In an interview with NBC12, Ken Cuccinelli for the first time admitted that federal investigators have questioned him about his connection to Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams.  The news comes as Cuccinelli tries to run from his scandal by giving in to months of public pressure over the $18,000 in gifts he received from the company and CEO while he was supposed to be pursuing them for $1.7 million in unpaid taxes.

“Ken Cuccinelli has spent months hiding the fact that federal investigators have looked into his scandalous relationship with Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams, going so far as to interview Cuccinelli himself about their relationship,” said McAuliffe spokesperson Josh Schwerin,  ”This revelation is just the latest shoe to drop in the Star Scientific scandal and leaves voters wondering what else Cuccinelli has been hiding about his scandal plagued tenure as Attorney General.”
