Richardson dodges questions on jury probe

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.
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.
