Feds Probe Richardson Campaign (NM)
The Albuquerque Journal ^ | Wednesday, November 16, 2011 | Mike Gallagher

A federal grand jury in Albuquerque is investigating former Gov. Bill Richardson’s presidential campaign for possible financial irregularities.

The grand jury has been hearing testimony in secret since at least September, and a number of witnesses have been granted immunity, according to defense attorneys familiar with the general outlines of the investigation.

Neither the U.S. Attorney’s Office nor the FBI would confirm or deny the existence of the latest investigation.

But the Journal has learned that one area under scrutiny is whether money from campaign supporters was used to settle a threatened lawsuit against Richardson in the fall of 2007 by a woman who formerly worked in state government.

This makes at least the fourth grand jury that has investigated Richardson, or his administration, or his campaign, since 2008.

He and all of his supporters as well as current people in office or in state jobs view him as the permanent majordomo.

Nothing will ever come of this, but it is interesting. Thank you for posting this.

What they need to do is look for any “regularities” that Richardson did

I think there were a couple in there
