Breaking news that’s still breaking and will continue to break for days!!
New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson has withdrawn from his nomination to…umm, what was it? Oh yes, Commerce Secretary!! So many nominations, so many nominees. Anyhoo, one time presidential candidate Richardson is withdrawing because of the anticipated distraction-based drama surrounding an investigation into…wait for it!..an alleged pay-to-play deal between some company that made donations to Richardson’s causes and was awarded contracts.
There’s no indictment and Richardson isn’t under arrest…this is an investigation and politics overfloweth with them 24/7/12.
But daaaaaaamn, talk about drama!
Pay-to-play is the investigation du jour…big time.
And looking to politicians for the campaign finance reform these scandals demand is like hiring the fox as a hen house security consultant.
***logs off to see if the breaking news that's been breaking all day has become a developing story yet***
