VA Ex-Mansion Chef Alleges Forced Private Catering

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The former chef for Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell claims in court papers that he was forced to cater private and political events and do personal shopping for the governor's family.

Todd Schneider says that as payment for his catering services at non-state events, he was told to take from the Executive Mansion kitchen food that he is accused of embezzling. He lists the governor's political action committee as 1 of the organizations that did not pay him for his catering services.

Schneider makes the allegations in a Richmond Circuit Court brief filed Monday supporting his motion to dismiss the four felony embezzlement charges against him. A hearing on that motion is set for next Monday, and Schneider's trial is scheduled for October.
