RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The U.S. Government has filed paperwork in former first lady Maureen McDonnell’s corruption case.

The prosecution is arguing that the public has “significant interest in the prompt resolution” of the case.

This development comes shortly after McDonnell’s lawyers filed motion to suspend her appeal until the supreme court decides if they’ll review her husband’s convictions.

Maureen and her husband, Bob, were convicted last year of doing favors in exchange for gifts and loans.
