RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell says evidence turned over by prosecutors in his public corruption case is incomprehensible.
    
In court papers filed Wednesday, defense lawyers say the government has produced a mountain of computerized documents "in a chaotic format riddled with errors." They say it's the digital equivalent of dumping 5 million loose-leaf documents on the floor.
    
The lawyers are asking a federal judge to order prosecutors to immediately fix the problem. The government has not yet responded to the motion.
    
McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, are charged in a 14-count indictment with accepting more than $165,000 in loans and gifts from the former CEO of a dietary supplements maker in exchange for helping promote his company's products. They have pleaded not guilty. A trial is set for late July.
