bill richardson being investigated by grand jury

Uh oh. Bad news for New Mexico governor Bill Richardson, Obama's controversial pick for Secretary of Commerce. Rod Blagojevich is not the only governor getting mixed up pay-to-play allegations: Now, feds probe Gov. Richardson of Obama Cabinet for 'pay-to-play'.

Richardson is apparently also being investigated by a federal grand jury in his home state for possibly steering state bond business from the New Mexico Financial Authority toward David Rubin, a significant campaign contributor. More here: Grand Jury Investigates Richardson Contributor.

Not directly Asian American news related, but I'm sure there are some folks out there, still feeling the sting over Richardson's involvement in the Wen Ho Lee debacle, who are pretty happy about this turn of events.
