McDonnell supporters aid with mounting legal bills

Posted: Updated:

Supporters of Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell are coming to his aid to help with his mounting legal bills.

The so-called "Restoration Fund" website was launched in July to help the governor defend himself against federal and state investigations into the gifts scandal.

Retiring Delagate Lacey Putney is among the supporters who are promoting the site and trying to restore the governor's image and legacy.

Prosecutors are trying to determine whether gifts given to Virginia's first family were used to influence the governor to promote donor Jonnie Williams' company, Star Scientific.

McDonnell says he's returned the gifts.
