For­mer gov­er­nor Mc­Don­nell re­joins law firm in state’s Tide­wa­ter area

The Washington Post Sunday - - COMMUTER - VIR­GINIA BY MARTIN WEIL martin.weil@wash­post.com

For­mer Vir­ginia gov­er­nor Robert F. Mc­Don­nell has ap­par­ently re­turned to the prac­tice of law.

The web­site of Poole Brooke Plum­lee, a law firm in the state’s Tide­wa­ter area, lists Mc­Don­nell as one of the firm’s 13 at­tor­neys. He had prac­ticed with the firm in the past.

Once a ris­ing Repub­li­can Party star, Mc­Don­nell, 62, was con­victed in 2014 of cor­rup­tion charges, but the U.S. Supreme Court unan­i­mously over­turned the con­vic­tion last June. He has al­ways main­tained that he did noth­ing il­le­gal.

As late as last Septem­ber, he said he did not know his plans. He could not be reached for com­ment Satur­day night.
