Is it a case of passing the buck?

Virginia taxpayers are now on the hook for more than $200,000 in legal fees related to Governor Bob McDonnell's gift scandal and the embezzlement case surrounding former governor's mansion chef Todd Schneider. 

FOX 5 learned overnight that the state even hired a 2nd law firm to get involved, and at times, they're charging $500 an hour.

Bob McCartney, metropolitan affairs columnist with the Washington Post, joined us with more.
