Virginians get regular updates on the Richmond trial of Bob and Maureen McDonnell, but it gets more limited exposure beyond the Commonwealth. CBS newsman Bob Schieffer has his own feelings about the trial of the former first couple, and voiced his opinion on Sunday’s Face the Nation. Schieffer contends the former Governor has thrown his wife “under the bus”, and he refers to him as a real standup guy. Schieffer (pictured) was a guest speaker in one of UVA Professor Larry Sabato’s classes in March 2013.
