Can you say "Kickbacks". Isn't it clear? Isn't it utterly illegal? Yes to both!

Old Fatty Bill Richardson ought to disclose everything about the foundation to avoid the appearance of impropriety. Of course, if he discloses everything about the foundation, the appearance might disappear and confirm the impropriety, which is probably why he isn't disclosing the details.

Stupid us, we've come to expect this type of sleazery from our elected officials, so we'll give him a pass and keep electing and supporting his crooked coterie. Kinda like a battered spouse who keeps going back for more out of love.

We love you, Fatty Bill! Here's a big, wet, smoochie, lambe kiss for your big fat corrupt keister....

I'm wondering how much the Pueblos have contributed. Richardson approved Aamodt and refused outreach with his constituents. Same with the County.

Kickback scams against the public (pay to play) have been characteristic of this administration from the beginning. There's a goldmine of investigative possibility at Risk Management in GSD.

There's a goldmine all right. Might as well call it the Lost Dutchman Mine.

After watching the hoopla of the day. I have come to the conclusion that most of everything we have heard and seen is that African Americans finally can side by side with whites. Not much mention of hispanics or other races - for that matter. Thank you Bill for playing politics as usual and taking our culture of the map. With amigos like you.......

I just hope King Bill gets what he deserves: Discredit, dishonor and dismissed.

Not only is our governor corrupt, but the legislature is too corrupt and/or cowardly to do anything about it. Our own dear Howie Morales was appointed by Richardson his first term and voted for everything the gov wanted him to, even the domestic partners bill. How can you do anything about a corrupt governor with weak state senators like that?
The tribe trying to get a casino going at Akela hasn't learned that they need to pay to play by donating to Richardson's campaign fund, or maybe now to his legal defense fund. The slots could be ringing by tomorrow.

I think Howie was right to vote for the Domestic Partners bill. Gay people have every right to be as unhappy and miserable as straight people!

Santa Rosa prison is GEO run and local poiticians of Santa Rosa, Pete and Jose Campos received over 64k to put the prison in. Senator Pete Campos also requested millions for the GEO prison in Santa Rosa. Our whole state is filled with corrupt politicians. Even more corrupt in smaller towns like Santa Rosa that have no oversight.
