[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Secretary, citing a federal investigation into a California company being investigated by the FBI.l Richardson has withdrawn his name from candicacy as Us commerce Secratary…]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.
