Sources tell ABC News that officials on the Obama Transition Team feel that before he was formally offered the job of commerce secretary, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson was not forthcoming with them about the federal investigation that is looking into whether the governor steered a state contract towards a major financial contributor.Good grief, it's not like the man ran for president or anything. Hope he enjoys bus fumes.
It's almost disappointing he won't be vetted, though. Senate Republicans could have had some fun mentioning his involvement in the Wen Ho Lee leak case, a case that got settled amidst almost no fanfare while everyone was focused on Libby and Plame.
