Report: Va. First Lady Paid $36,000 for Consulting


RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- The Washington Post reports that Virginia first lady Maureen McDonnell was paid $36,000 for consulting the charitable arm of a Virginia coal company.

United Co. chairman and chief executive James McGlothlin said that McDonnell advised the Bristol company and its philanthropic foundation on its giving toward educational and health care initiatives.

Gov. Bob McDonnell's 2011 and 2012 statements of economic interests list her as a paid trustee of the family charity, the Francis G. and James W. McGlothlin Foundation.

McGlothlin, however, tells the Post that she was not on the foundation board but a paid adviser to the company. That distinction would obligate McDonnell to disclose her compensation on the governor's required annual financial disclosure reports.
