News Flash! NM Governor Bill Richardson has withdrawn his name for consideration for Secretary of Commerce. A federal grand jury is investigating how a California company that contributed to Mr. Richardson’s political activities was awarded a lucrative New Mexico state contract.
Will there be more selections who do not make it to the finish line? Bill Richardson always seemed like a knowledgeable person who was brimming with foreign relations experience. It costs millions to win an elected office at that level. How can anyone raise the kind of money it takes to get elected and at the same time not have awards questioned? We certainly don’t want to limit elected office to only the extremely wealthy.
Will more of the chosen fall, before Senate confirmation? What do our readers think?
