ROANOKE, Va. -

Will he or won't he?

It was a question many asked about Governor Bob McDonnell Saturday night after the website: bearingdrift.com claimed the Republican would be stepping down as part of a plea agreement.

McDonnell's spokesperson tells WDBJ7 it's not true, and the rumors are just that -rumors.

In recent months, the governor has come underfire for reports he and his wife took gifts from wealthy donors without reporting them- leading to questions of bribery.
