Federal prosecutors have charged former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, with taking $120,000 in undocumented loans and numerous gifts.

The alleged corruption stemmed from his relationship with the owner of a dietary supplements business and helping it promote products to state officials.

The 43-page indictment includes page after page of alleged requests by the McDonnells, Maureen in particular, for help in paying for vacations.

And their daughter’s wedding, nearly $20,000 in designer dresses, a Rolex watch inscribed "71st Governor of Virginia" and numerous golf outings.

The couple also allegedly asked for private trips on the company’s jet and, once, to use a $200,000 Ferrari. Bob McDonnell has denied any wrongdoing.

Maria Conchita Alonso, a Grammy-nominated singer/actress, has pulled out of a Spanish production of The Vagina Monologues due to uproar over her role in a new political ad.

Alfonso appears alongside California gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly in the campaign video, translating for the Tea Party member and prompting backlash from Latino organizations who take issue with Donnelly's immigration views.

The politician founded a state chapter of the Minutemen, an armed vigilante border patrol group.

Due to threats of a boycott, Alonso told Fox News that she doesn't want to "hurt" the play by remaining part of it.

A minister, an activist and the leader of the American Civil Rights Movement, Martin Luther King Jr. was also one of the greatest speakers of all time.

Well-known for using the power of words to overcome social injustice, the influential figure was tragically assassinated April 4, 1968, at the age of 39.

Although his life came to an end much too soon, King’s leadership, character and unwavering desire to make a difference in our society live on.

Every year, we commemorate them on the third Monday of January. Here are 25 of the best MLK quotes to inspire you on this national holiday ...

I Have a Dream ...

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by...

This year's MLK Day carries special significance.

The masterful orator delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech from Washington's Lincoln Memorial on August 28, 1963, just over fifty years ago.

Addressing over 250,000 Americans, King referenced another milestone - Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation, declared 100 years prior.

He did not talk about bills before Congress or the marchers’ demands, but framed the civil rights movement within the broader landscape of history.

He evoked past, present and future, within the context of Scripture, in one of the most famous speeches - many believe the best - in U.S. history.

Forget all the flak he's taking from the press. And from voters. And from political opponents who think this could spell the end of his 2016 Presidential election bid.

THIS has to hurt the most for Chris Christie.

On Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the governor's very own musical hero joined the show's host on stage for a reworked version of "Born to Run," one that skewered Christie for his role in Bridgegate.

Yes, even Bruce Springsteen is now piling on in light of a scandal that involves Christie's subordinates purposely causing a major traffic jam for residents of Fort Lee, New Jersy because the mayor of that city didn't support Christie.

Causing kids to be late for school and thousands of people to be late for work? Not funny. The lyrics and presentation of the following parody? Totally hilarious.

Mitt Romney is featured in the following video, doing a little hoedown alongside performer Alex Boyé at a conference for young Mormons last weekend.

No, really!

We're talking about the same Mitt Romney who some might say came across as a bit wooden during the 2012 Presidential election; as a bit robotic and inhuman, other might argue.

Would he have gained more than 47 percent of the vote if he had done a little jig in public back then? We doubt it could have hurt...

Yesterday, during an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo, Dennis Rodman flipped out over questions regarding his latest trip to North Korea.

The ex-basketball star came across like he was cutting a promo for the WWE in defending his visit to Pyongyang for Kim Jong Un's 31st birthday today.

Now, however, Rodman is the one on the receiving end of someone else's venom. And rightfully so, many would argue.

The question that set Rodman off was about Kenneth Bae, an American sentenced to 15 years in a labor camp by the North Korean government because he allegedly committed "hostile acts" while running a tour operation in that country.

Those acts have never been explained and Bae's imprisonment is considered a prime example of the human rights violations enacted on a constant basis by Kim Jong Un and company.

Dennis Rodman went positively ballistic today during an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo.

While surrounded with several former NBA players, Rodman defended his trips to North Korea as a "great idea for the world."

But should the group, who is due to play in a basketball game tomorrow in honor of Kim Jong Un's 31st birthday, really be in Pyongyang? Is this a good idea, considering North Korea's human rights record?

Cuomo also asked Rodman a serious question about Kenneth Bae, an American citizen who was arrested in November 2012, convicted last spring by North Korea of unexplained "hostile acts" and sentenced to 15 years in a labor camp… only for Rodman to FLIP OUT.

He sounds like Hulk Hogan giving a wrestling promo in the following video. You must watch it now:

Then again... really, CNN?!? Why are you giving this man any kind of political platform?

First, Clay Aiken. Now, Steven Seagal?

With the former American Idol runner-up mulling a bid for U.S. Congress, Seagal now says he may also enter the political arena... as a candidate for Governor of Arizona!

In an interview with KNXV-TV, the action star-turned-deputized sheriff - who some believe is the Lamest Guy Ever - said he's open to the position because he doesn't believe the nation's biggest problem is being properly addressed.

No, not Islamic terrorism. But rather border control.

How would the star of Steven Seagal - Lawman: Maricopa County handle this problem? Find out now and then vote below:

Would you vote Steven Seagal into office?

Ten and a half years ago, Clay Aiken rose to fame by winning America's votes. In 2014, he may try to court them again, this time at the ballot box.

Only one district of North Carolina will decide the winner of this contest, though, if he decides to enter it: Clay is considering running for U.S. Congress.

Clay Aiken on the Red Carpet

According to a new report from the Washington Blade, the second-season American Idol runner-up is "actively" laying the ground work for a political run.

He has consulted with political operative Betsy Conti, who worked for former Vice President Al Gore and former North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue.

One Democratic source said Aiken made phone calls to gauge support, talked to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee about a potential bid.

Although it’s unclear when Aiken might announce a decision, the source said Aiken is “actively considering” it and “sounding and acting like a candidate."
