Gibbs: Might Be Time for McDonnell to Step Down

by Andrew Johnson

Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs argued that Virginia governor Bob McDonnell should seriously consider stepping down amid controversy over thousands of dollars in undisclosed gifts from a wealthy donor. With the state’s gubernatorial election coming up in November, he suggested replacing McDonnell until then.

“At some point, I think you begin to really and truly ask to the question that, ‘is it time for Governor McDonnell to step aside, honestly?’” Gibbs said.

“We have an election coming up, and maybe it’s time for a caretaker governor until we get to that election,” he added, meaning lieutenant governor Bill Bolling would take over until the November election.
