Richardson Trips Over Something Other Than His…

bill_richardsonWho ever would’ve thought that Bill Richardson would’ve been taken down by a scandal that didn’t involve his incessant skirt chasing? Bill Clinton’s erstwhile wingman looks like he’s gotten mired in a Federal Grand Jury investigation into improper donations made by a California firm to some of his political organizations. It also looks like the case is a lot thinner than Richardson himself, which is a shame as losing Richardson from the Cabinet to something groundless takes way an experienced voice and a fantastic emissary to the important emerging economies of the Latino world.

Losing Richardson to a scandal isn’t a shock. Losing him to a possible corruption charge– that’s a nasty surprise and one I have trouble ultimately buying into.
