democrat Gov. Bill Richardson withdraws from appointment To Be BHO's Commerce Secretary

Barack H. Obama's pick to be Commerce Secretary, democrat New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson has withdrawn his name from the appointment.

It seems that Gov. Richardson is under investigation in a 'pay to play scheme' (like the democrat Gov. of Illinois) involving a company that received a state contract after making a contribution to Richardson's political action committee.

Noel Sheppard, and others, wonder how this got past the Obama vetting process.

You have to dig down 11 paragraphs in the MSNBC story before Gov. Richardson's party (he's a democrat) is mentioned.
