What did we expect him to say, "oh yes, absolutely." Next will come, "I don't/can't recall."

As intelligent Human Beings, and Citizens of this State familiar with NM politics, we know the Routine. Deny, deny, and deny. Wait til COURT's in SESSION.

Couldn't agree more. Fat Bill has a lot in his BAG of TRICKS, as do the corrupt Judges. I sincerely hope that JUSTICE is SERVED. We the PUBLIC have to keep this in the "Limelight." Enough is Enough!

FOR SALE:

State of New Mexico high paying do nothing jobs.

Very good deal. Big pay, fantastic benefits and all the goodies you can get by leveraging you influence. For some positions you do not even have to report to work.

For only $4000 you too can have a $80,000 to $120,000 a year do nothing job.

To apply put your $4000 in small unmarked bills in a plain white envelope and write Bill Richardson's re-election fund on the front and stick behind the water tank on the handicap toilet in the men's restroom at Home Town Buffet in Santa Fe.

Unfortunately this "contribution" is not tax deductable.

From an economics standpoint, investing 4 grand for an 80k to 120k job is a good rate of return, if one doesn't mind dealing with the psuedo-mexican devil.

Bill is probably as innocent of this pay for play scam as he was of the other.

Just leave it to New Mexico, the man was almost impeached as Secretary of Energy, did a horrible job, and when it was over, we, the idiots of New Mexico, made him Governor. We got what we deserved. If he had not been so open in his crookedness, we the people of New Mexico, would have made him the next President. Obama or Richardson what a choice. When are we going to wake up and not vote for a party, or who is going to give us the most, and vote for a person who is going to do us, the citizens of New Mexico, a good job. They need to hang him first, then come after us, the citizens of New Mexico, for stupidity.

Fat Bill is a serial liar - why believe anything
that clown says.

Remember the shortfall - when it was advertised
that the State was only 205 million shortfall this
year - when it really turned out to be 410 million.

Just like Maobama this clown would lie about anything to make himself look good.

Richardson is one big fat lie from start to finish!
