True or not, I don’t expect this to go anywhere. We still have Palin’s and Cain’s bones to pick over. The Tea Party yet shows feeble signs of life. Richardson’s troubles would be an unnecessary distraction.

The Enquierer may be a rag but they seem to often be right.

As a potential criminal matter it should be pursued but I don’t see the point in wasting a lot of time on it otherwise.

Its the Democrat Disease—the zipper problem. Richardson was a Clintonista until he turned to obama.

The point is that we now have TWO Democrat presidential candidates whose ALLEGATIONS of affairs were hidden by the MSM until years after it mattered, while a current Republican candidate with an ALLEGATION of an affair was hounded out before the primary was over.

One has to ask what would have happened if Edwards or Richardson had made it to the nomination? At least they were given the opportunity to convince the voters based on their positions.

Cain was robbed of that equal treatment.

I really hate to put this so bluntly, but given how Cain spoke about where he began, with his father as a chauffer and his mother as a maid growing up in segregation, seeing how the Democrat MSM covered for two white men like Richardson and Edwards, the powers that be just told Cain to go back to the colored drinking fountain.

Michigan Rep Dale Kildee (D) has child molestation allegations leveled against him from 50 years ago by a family member or something. Personally I think its an attempt at extortion. Kildee is retiring but does have a nephew running to fill the seat.

They appear to be quoting the Wall Street Journal.
