"The governor has been diligent over the years in making his financial disclosures," said Martin, the governor's spokesman.
"As we have stated before, we are aware of no economic development grants, targeted tax incentives, government contracts or board appointments received by Star Scientific or Jonnie Williams during this administration," Martin continued.
"As an attorney, certainly Senator Petersen understands this office’s not discussing the details of matters pending in the legal process. And, as a legislator, certainly Senator Petersen is aware that Virginia’s disclosure requirements do not pertain to the families of elected officials."
Virginia's disclosure laws require elected officials to declare any gift valued at $50 or more. They do not require the disclosure of gifts to family members.
McDonnell, who signed the catering contract and made deposits, has said that he did not declare the $15,000 check for his daughter's wedding because the money was a gift to his daughter.
He has refused to comment on whether he was aware that the $6,500 Rolex watch he received from first lady Maureen McDonnell in 2011 was, in fact, a gift provided by Williams.
