New Mexico Governor cum Commerce Secretary nominee has withdrawn his nomination as a grand jury begins looking into his business dealings. Read about it here. I'm not here to rehash the charges. I just have to ask one question: Where are the calls for Richardson to resign? Is it because Democrats, by definition, cannot be corrupt? Like Blogo, in Illinois? Or is it only governors? Do we ignore Rep. Jefferson (D-LA) who comandeered a military vehicle during the aftermath of Katrina to rescue money from his flooded house?

So, Mr. Obama, is this the change you promised? More corruption and cronyism?

Before you get all "Right Wing Blogger!" on me, remember my first rule of politics: All politicians are crooks. The only difference between the right and the left is which explains why a politician rewarding a supporter isn't a crook.
