Questions about whether wife of VA governor is "paid trustee" for family foundation or adviser to coal industry -- to tune of $36K last year.

"Maureen McDonnell, the wife of Virginia’s governor, was paid $36,000 last year to attend a handful of meetings as a consultant to the philanthropic arm of one of the state’s major coal companies, a top coal company official said. Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R) indicated on his annual financial disclosure forms for 2011 and 2012 that his wife served as a paid trustee of a family charity, the Frances G. and James W. McGlothlin Foundation." -- Rosalind S. Helderman, the Washington Post
