The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia has recommended to the Justice Department that former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell be retried on corruption charges, the Washington Post is reporting, citing "people familiar with the case."

McDonnell's conviction was thrown out in a unanimous Supreme Court decision earlier this year. 

Prosecutors have until Sept. 19 to say whether they plan to retry him.
