BREAKING NEWS: Richardson withdraws

N.M. governor cites federal investigation into a California company with state contract

 By TRIP JENNINGS 1/4/09 11:36 AM

[Gov. Bill Richardson is withdrawing his name for consideration as U.S. Commerce Secretary, citing a federal investigation into a California company being investigated by the FBI.l Richardson has withdrawn his name from candicacy as Us commerce Secratary…]


Hmm. He could  be guilty of something. Or, as a personal observer to, and recipient of what the VRWC smear tactic did in the Clinton admin, he may think it might be too much for the Obama administration to take on right now.

The VRWC smear campaign came at a cost of more than 70 million voters dollars and the use of  investigation as  a political tool rather than a search for truth. 

I still don’t like him for what he did to HRC, but I’m going to wait and see how this investigation turns out, and then decide who to point fingers at.

P.S. the fact that the NYT, AP and Wapo are leading the charge on this uproar, just like with the VRWC allegations, does not inspire my trust.

Updated: Grand jury probes generous Richardson donor’s state contract

By HEATH HAUSSAMEN 12/15/08 11:24 AM

[The U.S. attorney’s office has convened a federal grand jury to investigate dealings between the state and a California company that was paid almost $1.5 million for work related to a contract it won around the same time it donated $100,000 to political action committees formed by Gov. Bill Richardson.

The grand jury probe comes after months of investigation by the FBI, whose agents, according to Bloomberg.com, have asked “current and former officials” from the New Mexico Finance Authority if any staffers in the governor’s office influenced the hiring of CDR Financial Products Inc. in 2004. The grand jury investigation was first reported today by Bloomberg….]


Murphy, over at PUMA ,wrote about it HERE.

I want to know how all these years of investigations are just now strong enough to bring to the light! I want to know why and who, of this mess. I don’t like the idea that the public is being managed. We all knew the Blagojevich thing was coming, yet we had to wait till just before the Guv was going to appoint a senator. Now, that act may have weakened the case against him because he didn’t actually appoint anyone? 

This all smacks of the sadly deficent period of our political life in the Clinton years, where the right wing rabid bats ruled by innuendo and accusation. Are they still? Let’s find out.

On the other hand, there is this: Audit, Audit, Audit! PUMAs can do something!
