Justice Department Kills Investigation Into Bill Richardson’s Crimes

Not even Comrade Obama had the audacity to add the glaringly corrupt Bill Richardson to the collection of kooks and tax cheats that passes for his cabinet. But his administration is glad to lend a hand to keep the crook out of jail:

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson and former high-ranking members of his administration won’t be criminally charged in a yearlong federal investigation into pay-to-play allegations involving one of the Democratic governor’s large political donors, someone familiar with the case said.

The decision not to pursue indictments was made by top Justice Department officials, according to a person familiar with the investigation, who asked not to be identified because federal officials had not disclosed results of the probe.

“It’s over. There’s nothing. It was killed in Washington,” the person told The Associated Press.

Kind of like the investigation into the Black Panther thugs who intimidated voters on Chairman Zero’s behalf last November.

A federal grand jury began an investigation in 2008 into a possible pay-to-play scheme in which lucrative work on state bond deals went to a Richardson donor. The federal probe derailed Richardson’s appointment as commerce secretary in President Barack Obama’s administration.

But you can’t expect the Justice Department to investigate crooked governors when it has its hands full persecuting CIA agents for defending us from terrorists.
