UPDATE:

This has the smell of CLINTON RETRIBUTION for endorsing Obama over Hillary written all over it...

Richardson’s “Scandal” is actually a minor in Dem political corruption.

Richardson may be implicated in a “pay-for-play” scandal of his own back in New Mexico.

There’s a federal Grand Jury investigating.

Don’t know if this means he’s likely to be indicted or if the Obamanators decided that they simply couldn’t have the “distraction” (heh, heh) with all the stuff going on about Blago.

This is sweeeeet, an Obamanation cabinet nominee side-tracked by ethics and legal problems before Obama has even been sworn in!!!! How often has that EVER happened for a previous “Office of the President-Elect” (sic)???

Quote from the article:

“What’s more interesting, really, is that there’s apparently a widespread federal probe of high level officials across the country engaging in this sort of activity. One wonders what this is based on. Is true graft (as opposed to the “The real crime is what’s legal” murkiness of political fundraising) much more common than realized? Or is this just a fishing expedition?”

Hehehehe . . . the plot thickens. Wonder how Obama is going to dodge this one? Man, he is taking it from all sides now, I still stand on my prediction from several months ago.

BHO is going to have a Jack Nicholson moment (A Few Good Men) - “You can’t handle the truth.” And then he’s going to slither into a useless heap on the floor. No man will be able to stand up to all the hits he is taking and will continue to take. The fake will be exposed for what he is.

That would jive with Carville’s comment about expecting MORE Democrat Corruption to be revealed, and his attempt to dismiss it by saying, “Well, there are more Democrats now”...

OK, what scandal is about to break with him?

Actually, it broke two weeks ago:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/12/15/AR2008121502940_pf.html

Most of the media has been ignoring it, so there must really be something there for Richardson to withdraw with absolutely no pressure from the Press.

"pretty sad when you're not up to Zero's ethics standards"

Obama to Richardsons: "The first rule of political graft is DON'T GET CAUGHT!"

ha ha ha ha..... this is so sweet, to see all these Demagogues falling like flies despite the best efforts of the Mediascum to protect them.

I want to see Shrillary fall next.....

So much for the most ethical administration in world history. Oh, wait, they're being forced to weed out some of their worst, so maybe they will all be saints by the time the Obamanation is sworn in. /s

The media will spin that as an honorable act, like the guy who committed suicide after he lost $1.5 billion of his investors money in that Ponzie scheme
