Expect drama to unfold when corruption trial of former Virginia Gov. McDonnell, wife begins Monday

ABC 7 WJLA News - Skip Wood - Fri, 25 Jul 2014 12:03:36 EST

RICHMOND, Va. (WJLA) -- Once upon a time, Grace Slick implored listeners of Jefferson Airplane to &ldquo:Go ask Alice, when she&rsquo:s 10 feet tall.&rdquo:

It was a reference, of course, to Lewis Carroll&rsquo:s classic &ldquo:Alice&rsquo:s Adventures in Wonderland,&rdquo: a novel replete with wanderings into rabbit holes that reveal untold and untangled secrets &ndash: whether or not you &ldquo:just ate some kind of mushroom.&rdquo:

Which brings us to former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell&rsquo:s corruption trial, which begins Monday in Richmond.

When McDonnell entered office with a flourish a little more than four years ago, he was figuratively 10 feet tall. These days, though, hes looking kind of small.

Rabbit hole, indeed.

And while the basic details of the charges against McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, have been well chronicled, that obviously isn&rsquo:t the case for what both the defense and the prosecution plan to present.

Surprises?

Twists?

No doubt.

All of which leaves Larry Sabato, the University of Virginia&rsquo:s chief talker for everything regarding Virginia politics, fascinated &ndash: if not sadly so.

&ldquo:I'm as interested as everyone else to see how this turns out,&rdquo: Sabato said. &ldquo:I understand the politics of it -- win or lose, Bob McDonnell is not going to be in any major public office again -- but how the judge and jury end up interpreting the McDonnells' actions in the context of Virginia's historically loose laws and practices is another story.

&ldquo:We'll all find out together.&rdquo:

In a nutshell, the case against the McDonnells is that they used the influence of the governor&rsquo:s office to enhance their supposedly grim financial picture, chiefly through a friendship and relationship with Richmond-area businessman Jonnie R. Williams.

If convicted, they could spend decades in prison and potentially face millions of dollars in fines.

Asked about the looming trial, Virginia Tech political science professor Charles Walcott &ndash: a nationally renowned scholar and researcher &ndash: pointed to the larger picture and bemoaned the influence money has in politics and how there&rsquo:s so little that can be done, especially in light of relatively recent Supreme Court rulings.

And the McDonnell trial?

&ldquo:It's a shame that McDonnell's governorship came to this, and that it will be remembered for scandal more than for accomplishment,&rdquo: Walcott said. &ldquo:. . . Not a happy picture, however the trial turns out.

&ldquo:Our system faces a real problem in the area of money and politics. Simply saying, as the Supreme Court in effect has, "toss more of it around" is not a viable solution.&rdquo:

The trial is expected to last several weeks.

Cherrystone tornado rated EF-1

ABC 7 WJLA Storm Watch 7 - Alex Liggitt - Fri, 25 Jul 2014 11:46:00 DST

The National Weather Service office in Wakefield, VA surveyed the damage from yesterday mornings storm in Northhampton County in southeastern Virginia and determined the damage was due to a tornado, straight line wind, and a large swath of hail.

Path of the tornado, straight line wind and large hail

Above is a look at the path of the tornado, wind and large hail. The tornado originated in the Chesapeake Bay as the storm rapidly intensified. The EF-1 tornado had estimated maximum wind speeds of 80 to 100 mph and was on the ground for 8 miles over a span of 15 minutes. It's maximum width was 150 yards. The tornado wasn't the only feature that caused damage in this storm.

A downburst resulting in straight line winds was observed in the yellow wind damage swath. Wind speeds were estimated between 65 and 75 mph and downed numerous trees and even contributed to overturning several camping trailers in the Cherrystone Campground.

The hail core fell mainly within the blue lines (first image above) in the size of golfballs to a few reports of baseball size. This caused considerable tree and leaf debris, crop damage and siding damage on homes in the path.

The storm caused 36 injuries and 2 fatalities.

See the rest of the preliminary storm survey here.

Va. Governor Terry McAuliffe to tour tornado damage at Cherrystone campground along Eastern Shore

ABC 7 WJLA News - The Associated Press - Fri, 25 Jul 2014 05:58:58 EST

CAPE CHARLES, Va. (AP) - Flattened trees, flipped-over RVs, scattered tents, and awnings ripped from trailers - a scene of devastation awaited the visit of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe the day after a tornado ripped through a campground on the Chesapeake Bay.

Two people were killed and dozens more injured by the twister, which on Thursday morning tore into the Cherrystone Family Camping and RV Resort, a 300-acre playground of swimming pools, mini-golf, pier fishing, crabbing and other activities on the state's Eastern Shore.

McAuliffe was scheduled to visit with the Northampton County Sheriff's Office and local politicians before touring the damage Friday. The governor canceled a fundraiser in Aspen, Colorado, for his political action committee, and a planned visit to the Colorado Springs headquarters of the United States Olympic Committee, where he had planned to lobby in favor of Washington, D.C.'s bid to host the 2024 summer Olympics, said his spokesman Brian Coy.

The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for the area about the time it struck, but many at the park said they had only a few minutes of warning.

":All hell broke loose,": said Joe Colony, a Stephensville, Maryland, resident who has been coming to the campground for 30 years. ":We got an emergency message on a cellphone and within 30 seconds, the thing hit and it blew down 40, 50 trees in the park.":

A tree fell on a tent shared by a married couple from Jersey City, New Jersey, killing them. Their 13-year-old son was in a neighboring tent and was severely injured. State police said he was one of 36 to be harmed in the storm, with injuries ranging from cuts and broken bones to more serious ones.

The couple killed were identified as Lord Balatbat and Lolabeth Ortega, Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said.

Luis Balatbat Jr., 47, told The Jersey Journal that his family was shocked to learn of the death of his brother and sister-in-law.

":We are a close family, and this is very bad for us,": he said.

Lord Balatbat's father, Luis Balatbat, 78, told the newspaper that all three of the couple's children are hospitalized. He said his grandson is in a coma, his 12-year-old granddaughter suffered a leg and ear injury, and his 7-year-old granddaughter was struck in the stomach by a tree limb.

":I'm struggling,": the grandfather said. ":I wanted to go there, but my doctor said do not go there because I am not well enough to travel. My wife is the same way.":

The couple has been married 14 years and both were born in the Philippines, the newspaper reported.

More than 1,300 people were registered at the campground when the tornado hit. The American Red Cross was assisting displaced campers and a shelter was set up at a local high school.

Peter Glagola, spokesman for Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital, said the hospital treated more than two dozen people. One patient in critical condition was flown to VCU Medical Center in Richmond, he said. Three, including the 13-year-old boy, were transported to Children's Hospital of the Kings Daughters in Norfolk. Most at Riverside had been released by Thursday morning, according to state police.

Baltimore Orioles beat the Seattle Mariners 4-0

ABC 7 WJLA Sports - The Associated Press - Fri, 25 Jul 2014 05:00:56 EST

SEATTLE (AP) - Wie-Yen Chen threw one of his finest games in the major leagues, allowing just five hits over eight innings in Baltimore's 4-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night.

What everyone wanted to talk about, however, was his defense.

Chen (11-3), who has won his past four starts, set the tone in the first inning when he bounded off the mound, gathered a slow roller and glove-flipped the ball to the plate to prevent a run.

":That was a little bit of a momentum change there,": Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. ":Then he showed how to get people out after that.":

Delmon Young hit a three-run homer in the Orioles' four-run third inning and that was all Chen needed as he scattered five singles, walked one and struck out three, matching his career high for innings pitched.

His 11 wins ties him for third-most in American League. On the road, Chen is 6-1 with a 3.94 ERA in nine starts.

Darren O'Day finished with a routine ninth inning.

It was Baltimore's eighth shutout. The Mariners have been shut out 12 times, tying Tampa Bay for the most in the American League.

Chen's only hint of trouble came in the first. James Jones walked and stole second, the rookie's 20th of the season.

After a groundout, Robinson Cano dribbled a ball in front of the plate. Chen scooped and flipped it with his glove to catcher Caleb Joseph, who tagged Jones as he slid in head first.

":They actually practice that play in spring but it's one of those things people think you're killing time with pitchers,": Showalter said. ":But it came into play today.":

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon protested the call but it was crew chief Fieldin Culbreth who initiated a TV replay review to determine if Joseph illegally blocked the plate.

After a review of 3:45, the original call was confirmed.

":I was going on contact and his foot was there in the way,": Jones said. ":I didn't understand the rules, if I could run through him or I didn't know what to do but he was definitely in front of that plate.":

Joseph said he's ":pretty clear on the rules.":

":You try catch it and make the tag,": he said. ":The last thing in my mind is where you are position-wise. But that's an important aspect because of the new rules. We got it right tonight. We got it wrong about a month or so ago so it feels good to get it right this time.":

McClendon still isn't so sure.

":I can't go out and argue after the decision's been made,": he said. ":I'm just a little puzzled. He didn't have the ball, his foot was in front of the plate, he caught the ball and he dropped (his knee). To me, that's blocking the plate.":

Hisashi Iwakuma (8-5), who had won his previous three decisions, lost for the first time since June 25. He went seven innings, allowing four runs and seven hits. He struck out five without a walk.

Iwakuma, who had just two three-ball counts, has not walked a batter in a club-record five straight starts, a span of 35 2-3 innings. He is second in club history in walk-less innings behind Cliff Lee's 38, set in June 2010.

Iwakuma has 33 strikeouts against no walks in those five starts.

The Orioles began their four-run third with singles by John Flaherty, Joseph and Nick Markakis.

Markakis' single drove in one run and on the next pitch Young hit his fourth homer. It was the Orioles' 123rd of the season, tying Toronto for the most in the majors.

Young said he wasn't thinking home run ":just something to get us the runner in from third.":

Dustin Ackley of the Mariners had a single in the second to give him a seven-game hitting streak and push his July average to .373.

NOTES: Beyond the Mariners' acquisition of DH Kendrys Morales from the Twins before the game, the club also added two players from Triple-A Tacoma to the roster. Jesus Montero was called up for a second stint and started at DH. Chris Taylor started at short in his first major league game and singled in the fifth. When he called his parents in Virginia Beach to tell them the news, Taylor said, ":it was tough to hold it together. That moment is something you're never going to forget. Talking to them on the phone, telling them the news, hearing their voices, how excited they were, it's just an indescribable feeling.": To make room, the club sent RHP Taijuan Walker back to Tacoma and placed INF Willie Bloomquist (right knee contusion) on the 15-day DL. . The Orioles acquired INF Jimmy Paredes from Kansas City for cash considerations. He will report to the minors.
