Breaking news: Joan Rivers dies; former Virginia governor and wife convicted

Posted By on Thu, Sep 4, 2014 at 2:16 PM

Breaking news flashes: Joan Rivers has died and former Virginia Governor Bob McConnell and his wife have been convicted in the case that alleged they took gifts in return for official help.
