RECENT RICHARDSON STORIES

My story about other presidential candidates who got contributions from New Mexico can be found HERE. (Looks like Hillary is winning the Maloof battle.)

But the strangest tale from the Richardson campaign finance report actually came from a Waco brother. The Waco Tribune-Herald reported that someone used a name very similar to that of a Republican Texas judge -- as well as the judge's former address -- to make a $2,300 contribution to the Richardson campaign. If that's a joke, it's a pretty bizarre one -- not to mention expensive! The judge said he didn't make the contribution. We don't know who did, but the story strongly implies someone made the contribution using a false name.
