Bill Richardson Self-Deports from Obama Cabinet!

Bill Richardson Self-Deports from Obama Cabinet!

By John Lillpop

Another day, another liberal Democrat caught up in a national scandal. That is hardly breaking news, right?

Right, except for the fact that this time the culture of corruption was invaded by a Spanish-speaking, La Raza-inspired bully from New Mexico.

That would be Bill Richardson, Governor of New Mexico, who failed in his attempt to become the Democrat Party`s nominee for the presidency, and whom corn ball James Carville called "Judas" for abandoning Hillary Clinton in order to jump aboard the Obama Express.

Richardson, the "Great Brown Hope" for Hispanics, was nominated by Barack Obama to be the Secretary of Commerce.

However, as reported by NBC News (1), in part,

"New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, tapped in December by President-elect Barack Obama to serve as secretary of Commerce, has withdrawn his name for the position, citing a pending investigation into a company that has done business with his state.

"A federal grand jury is investigating how a California company that contributed to Richardson`s political activities won a lucrative New Mexico state contract."

Sounds like someone may have been involved in the corrupt practice of selling political influence for cash.

Why does that sound so familiar, and sooooooo Democrat Party?

Does the name Rod Blagojevich ring a bell? How about ACORN?

With this latest dilly added to his resume, it will take more than 30 pieces of silver to salvage the career of the man whose title is Governor of New Mexico, but who behaves as though he is on the payroll of Old Mexico!

Good bye, good luck, and good riddance to the Great Brown Hope!
