Former New Mexico Democratic Governor Bill Richardson is accused of raking in hundreds of thousands in bribes and kickbacks to fund debauched lifestyle including 'sexual services and favors'.
The scandal plagued former governor of New Mexico - who Virginia Roberts claimed she had underage sex with on Jeffrey Epstein's orders - has been dragged into the mud once again.
Career politician Bill Richardson has been accused of raking in hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes and kickbacks while in office - money which allegedly funded a luxury and debauched lifestyle including 'sexual services and favors', according to a recently unsealed legal complaint obtained by DailyMail.com.
According to the lawsuit, Richardson ran a scam dubbed the 'Richardson Ring' which saw the one-time governor benefiting from money he grafted from business investments into the state of New Mexico in the early 2000s.
The greedy politician lined his own pockets with cash, used some money to fund his political campaigns and organizations and also enjoyed lavish meals, wine and liquor as well as luxury travel and entertainment, the legal filing claims.
Richardson, 72, served as Governor for New Mexico from January 1, 2003 to December 31, 2010 and during that time he was the chairman of the State Investment Council (SIC).....

NM choose the worst politicians. All of them now make Pete Domenici look pretty good.
This guy was an obvious sleeze bag

I'm Shocked! Shocked I tell you! To find out that Bill Richardson would ever be involved in anything corrupt!
Hes a Democrat. Just boys being boys. Theyll give him a medal.
He has always looked shifty - plus the bolo tie.
About a dozen years ago, one of my sons was looking for particularly bad penny stocks to short sell. He pointed out that many of these flimsy companies were incorporated in Nevada, and that often the same people would show up on multiple boards of directors.
So, he asked me to look over one company’s SEC filing, and lo and behold, one of the officers or directors was Bill Richardson. I laughed and did a search on filings with his name... I think he was on the boards of a half-dozen of these fly-by-night penny stock companies.
He wasn’t worried about the appearance of impropriety. Instead, he was focused on monetizing what was left of his modest political fame.
So, I find it entirely believable that he ran a long-standing shady kickback operation.
nickcarraway posted a different article on this a couple weeks ago. I didn’t see it until a few minutes ago when I did a search to see if this article had been posted today.
Has some additional info in it:
Pete Domenici WAS pretty good until his last few years when he turned RINO. I knew him since I was a kid, when he was Albuquerque City Manager. (Friend of my fathers.)
Now is the time to follow up on this.
Does it reach the Clintons?
One way or the other, everything reaches the Clintons. They will get their cut of every dirty cent.
FWIW, I’d be far more worried about people still in office.
This is a national security nightmare.
One of the side-effects of having a totally biased media, is the propping up of mediocre to extremely bad Democrat politicians. This is one of the biggest factors leading to Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden being the last two Democrat nominees. They both had disqualified themselves multiple times from ever being trusted with power.
You bet it does.
If I remember correctly, this is Bill and Bill having a intimate little 'Super Bowl' party at Richardson's NM home.
(Probably right after a little side trip to Epstein's NM Ranch.)
I’m still waiting for the expose of the 1949 UFO incident from Roswell. If you will remember, about twenty years ago Bill Richardson was on some TV show in which “evidence” of the crash was dug up and was going to be examined and publicized.
Nothing ever came of it. Still waiting with bated breath!(OK, not really)
At least, Bubba knew how to make a cigar taste great.
I’d love to see Balderas have his political ambitions cut short. He’s a danger.
And as far as Bill, who didn’t know he was a sleaze.
Me too. Soros Owned and Operated.
And he loved him some trips to North Korea. You think Kim didn’t ply him with underage girls? Oh yeah, and no birth certificate AT ALL. He was born in Mexico and carried across by his illegal alien momma who promise he was born on this side and she sneaked in before that.
