A bit more to the Richardson removal from consideration as Commerce Secretary than I first thought. Apparently the Obama campaign got $30,000.00 from David Rubin, the man at the center of the Richardson pay for play investigation. This would explain why, combined with the Blagojevich indictment, that Richardson was thrown under the bus so quickly. Since Obama raised over 600 million in the Presidential campaign, one can imagine all the seedy characters who tossed substantial funds into the pot, no doubt solely because they believed in “hope and change”. Bet that Team Obama is matching with a microscope their fund raising records against those of each nominee now.
