Ex-Virginia governor talks about marriage at trial
Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell says tension in his marriage was fueled in part by his wife's difficulty dealing with her staff.
McDonnell testified Thursday that it got so bad that he eventually stayed in his office longer than necessary rather than go home and listen to his wife's complaints.
He also said he often heard his wife, Maureen, yelling at assistants. He said she didn't appreciate it when he tried to rein her in.
The marriage is a key issue in the McDonnells' public corruption trial. Defense attorneys suggest they couldn't have conspired in a gifts-for-favors scheme with a wealthy businessman because their communications had broken down.
