Board Meeting and the Sheriff

I am off to a meeting of the Wyss Foundation Board in Colorado for the next few days. We will be doing funding work for many western public land groups. It is always a lot of fun. I am looking forward to getting out of the pollen blanket over Albuquerque, although it will be snowing and blustery in Boulder.

I read this morning that Sheriff Darren White who is running for Heather Wilson's seat has done some back room dealing to get the National Republican Party's endorsement over Senator Joe Cararro. And their Primary election hasn't even occurred. This kind of thing fits a pattern that the bush administration would love. Remember all the back room deals for Halliburton? Let's not forget what an unabashed supporter of the bush/cheney team that our Sheriff was. White was a great supporter of the Iraq war as bush's Bernalillo County campaign chairman. This is something that we will never let anyone forget. He can not run away from it or try to rewrite his history on it.
