Bobby Thompson's 'U.S. Navy Veterans Association'

McDonnell and others donating contributions, but not Cuccinelli

Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R), House Speaker Bill Howell (R-Stafford) and State Sen. Patsy Ticer (D) all said today that they plan to donate to established charities contributions they received from a Florida man who was a director of a charity that is now under scrutiny in three states.

That's easy for them to say -- they took $5,000, $2,000 and $1,000 respectively from Bobby Thompson, a former director of the U.S. Navy Veterans Association.

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (R) took more than $55,500 from Thompson, making Thompson Cuccinelli's second-largest individual donor before the November election. Continued

Should be noted that Ticer, who sponsored a bill that would make this Thompson's so called VSO easier to get contributions in Virginia, tried to get the governor to Veto her bill when she became suspicious of the reports and other states investigations into the 'U.S. Navy Veterans Association'
