Virginia’s new Attorney General has terminated contracts with law firms that provided outside counsel to a former governor.  The two firms billed the state nearly $800,000 for representing Former Governor Bob McDonnell and his staff during an investigation of Star Scientific Corporation, and a dispute with a onetime chef at the Executive Mansion. Attorney General Mark Herring (pictured) says there’s no longer a need for the outside counsel. His predecessor, Ken Cuccinelli, hired the private firms after he determined he had a conflict of interest.
