How the McDonnell indictment played out on front pages

Former Virginia governor Robert F. McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, were indicted Tuesday. The story — a onetime political star turned pariah, a former governor less than two weeks out of office, indictments that revealed new details and listed nearly three dozen items that could be seized (including shoes, dresses and a silver Rolex watch engraved with “71st Governor of Virginia) — was big news, dominating headlines from the District to Richmond and beyond.

Here’s a look at some front pages highlighting the news.

The Washington Post, which has thoroughly covered this story, put the indictment news atop the front page (beating out Tuesday’s snowstorm):

Our colleague J. Freedom du Lac was nice enough to tweet screenshots of other front pages.
