Virginia's former first lady Maureen McDonnell was sentenced Friday to 12 months and 1 day on Friday for her part in the high profile bribery case that dominated the governor's office, the United States District Court Eastern District of Virginia tells CNN.

McDonnell was charged with "soliciting and obtaining payments, loans, gifts and other items from Star Scientific, a Virginia-based corporation, and Jonnie R. Williams Sr., Star Scientific's then chief executive officer, in violation of federal public corruption laws," according the Justice Department, which released the news Friday.

Always good to see Republicans taking the moral and ethical high-road.

McDonnell did a lot of good things as governor, so it's unfortunate that he exercised such poor judgment when it came to gifts, "loans," and banking. Come to find out that his wife was quite the diva and a major source of headaches.

There's a decent chance that Eric Holder's Justice Department would not have prosecuted a liberal Democratic governor who had done the same things that McDonnell did.

This is not to excuse McDonnell, however.
