The FBI is investigating Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell’s relationship with a campaign donor who paid $15,000 for the catering at McDonnell’s daughter’s wedding, because COME ON, ARE YOU SERIOUS?
Lucky for you—if not for Gov. McDonnell—we dug up details on the wedding menu. Here’s what guests ate, and how that money was spent:
Fresh poached jumbo Virginia shrimp. Each shrimp was paid extra to vote Republican.
Bruschetta with Virginia tomatoes. The tomatoes were perfectly ripe. Also, instead of bread, they were served on stacks of $100 bills.
Sesame-crusted chicken satay. Each sesame seed was carved in the shape of Bob McDonnell’s face.
Grilled London Broil with fresh horseradish. ”Fresh horseradish” is common Virginia slang for “a contribution to Bob McDonnell’s re-election fund.”
Herb- and goat cheese-stuffed free-range chicken breast with Virginia tomato sauce. Genetically engineering a cheese-filled chicken breast that can walk around an open field? Not cheap.
