Gov. Bill Richardson cut short a news conference Tuesday, abruptly leaving the room and ignoring reporters' questions about a federal grand jury investigation.
A grand jury in Albuquerque reportedly is looking into a possible "pay-to-play" connection between a Beverly Hills financial company's large contributions to Richardson political action committees and nearly $1.5 million the company received for work on a state road-building program.
Richardson at news conferences normally fields inquiries on virtually any subject a reporter wants to ask about. And he frequently lingers in the room to take even more questions after the conference is over.

This could end up being the most corrupt administration of a President elect in the history of the United States. At least Bill Clinton waited a few years into his administration before disgracing the office.
