UNMASKING ZORRO

Jeffrey Epstein, a New York billionaire finacier with an enormous mansion in south Santa Fe County, has been indicted on felony charges of soliciting prostitutes in Florida.

He calls his 10,000-acre New Mexico property The Zorro Ranch.

Palm Beach police say he had sex with teenage girls, paying then between $200 and $1,000 for their encounters.

But he was even more generous with New Mexico politicians. According to state records, he gave:

* $50,000 for Gov. Bill Richardson’s 2002 campaign and, under the name of one of his companies, The Zorro Trust, another $50,000 to Richardson’s re-election campaign this year.
* $15,000 to attorney general candidate Gary King.
* $10,000 to state land commissioner candidate Jim Baca.
* $2,000 to Santa Fe County Sheriff Greg Solano.
