Anything involving Edgar has to be tainted he was often heard stating he got Judges appointed. He is the most arrogant and rude person I have ever come across.

Why are they only going after Murphy, and why so hard? If you read the testimony and indictment, there are a whole list of people as or more guilty than he is here.

When this story broke I predicted it would go this way. Glad to see the 'authorities' going after Bill Richardson. Richardson has plenty of 'high powered' friends with Obama being at the top of that list. The time of greedy politicians is over and the time to nail these dollar sucking leeches is now. Start at the bottom and work your way up.

Obama reported that he is now a muliti-millionaire after just about three years in office. I really hope the authorities can find a path to Obama and bring down what's left of his support group because this country can not tollerate another four years of his insanity.

Jaki, No justice, Eltorro, garza,

I agree with you guys 100% its time we start cleaning house, start hunting these crooks down and putting them in jail, giving them fines. It does start with Murphey, but it goes way above him, but start at the state level and I am sure the trail ends at the White House. But at the very least it would be nice to get our state back under control, there has been way to much corruption for way to long.

He brought those typical old Mexico corrupt "pay to play" ethics with him from Mexico.

we should start with Bill Richardson by kicking his butt, then feeding him to the cartel in juarez so they could finish him off since he such an arrogant bastard who thinks his shit dont stink. Living like a king as a govenor at tax payers expense. Then having friends like this puto Murphy who had his head so far up Richadson's ass. Now this is a true brown noser, i bet his knees are dirty too. Hang them all freakin bastards.

For all we know, Edgar was shaking everybody down claiming it was for Richardson, and keeping it for himself. Time will tell.

You know this "so called" judge murphy was my child support judge....of course because he is corrupted and wrong...he sided with my ex who by the way owes in arears $45,000 in back pay of child support and on going child support....yet this "judge" did not find him my ex doing anything wrong AND modified my child support to get less. I walked out of the court room CRYING not understanding what happened. A good friend told me not to worry...that KARMA has a way of making its way back.....I DO NOT THINK SHE WAS KIDDING!! I AM GLAD TO SEE THIS S.O.B GETTING WHAT HE ROBBED US SINGLE MOTHERS!!!!!!!

I'm with you; I've been waiting and waiting. This AH was my lawyer too, and he awarded my AH EX my retirement, although the EX had never requested it. As luck would have it, the EX died just before I retired. And now this AH gets his due too.

Does anyone truly believe that indicting, arresting and putting any politician on trial gets us anywhere. If we started to investigate all of these self-serving political wackos, there would be no one left in office. The higher a politician climbs the more protection they are able to achieve. Oh yes, on occasion one is thrown to the dogs to let people feel good about "THE SYSTEM", but I would foster a guess that a hefty percentage of them are corrupt and push their position to the maximum. They are lucky if that push doesn't throw them over the line, wherever that is!

If you will do a little digging you find there are audio tapes of Murphy stating the facts. Notice I didn't call him Judge.

MORE PAYOLA!!!

Of the 204 new Obamacare waivers President Barack Obama’s administration approved in April, 38 are for fancy eateries, hip nightclubs and decadent hotels in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s Northern California district.

“Judge Murphy believes that public confidence in the judiciary is of extreme importance. So he understands temporarily not hearing cases.

As a member of the public, I have absolutely no faith in the third judicial courthouse nor do I have any confidence in any of the judges Richardson appointed. The fact that the supreme court did not take action until after the grand jury met is frightening. However, according to Murphy our chief Jstice Charles Daniels was also involved in this. I think Governor Martinez should just clean house of all of the Richardson appointed judges with the exception of Judge Schultz. She is the only one that was honest when they all knew what was happening. I am afraid of the judicial system in this state. This corruption would certainly explain why the judges at the
third jdicial courthouse carried the corruption into their courtrooms and made some of their rulings in favor of attorneys they were partial to. Some of the judges have given orders that
were illegal and violated the litigant's civil rights.

I don't think so. Obviously Richardson knew about this. He was the one that ultimately made the judicial appointments not Lopez.

When confronted with "Pay me off or I'll go to the cops", one Judge refused to pay blackmail. He stood and fought,cleared his name but was destroyed in the process. If your innocent Murphy fight. But regardless your name will be mud.
