KRQE News was out with a scoop last night that says Governor Richardson and his staff will not be charged with any wrong doing in 'pay for play' allegations. The U.S. Attorney's office apparently just wasted millions of dollars and countless man hours pursuing a politician unnecessarily. Think what they have put the Governor through for the last year! He lost a cabinet appointment with the Obama administration and has been under constant stress.
So, what will we hear from the US Attorney's office? An apology? Don't count on it. But, maybe we can hear a farewell from the prosecutors who piped this thing up out of the ether. They should be held accountable for the mess and moved off into the sunset.
Whether you like the Governor or not, this kind of neverending action against someone is horrendous. Countless innuendo reaching the press will now dog the Governor and his staff forever. Just google his name and see what pops up.
I hope the Obama administration will appoint a new US Attorney in short order.
