Former vice presidential adviser Scooter Libby is among more than 1,000 felons whose voting rights were restored in the past year by Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell.

Libby is listed in an annual report on pardons and other forms of clemency the Republican governor is required to file with the General Assembly. The report says Libby's civil rights were restored Nov. 1. The contents of the report were first reported by the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Libby was the chief of staff for Vice President Dick Cheney. He was convicted in 2007 of perjury, obstruction of justice and making false statements in a case involving leaked information about a CIA operative's identity. His 2½-year prison sentence was commuted by then-President George W. Bush.

In Virginia, only the governor can restore felons' civil rights.
