One of the worst in the country? (Podcast)
(2010-04-21)
(KSFR) -

The name of Gov. Bill Richardson is included in a newly issued report.

The Washington watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington has come out with a list of 11 governors that they say are the worst in the nation. The citizens group normally takes a measured, studious approach to its ratings of members of congress and other publicly elected figures. They've been successful on a number of occasions in getting congressional committees to review members of the congress who may have done questionable things.

But what about this governor's list, and why is Bill Richardson on it? We spoke with Melanie Sloan, the group's executive director.

The governor's staff says his inclusion is "ridiculous," given the fact that most of the sources cited as evidence are one newspaper -- the Albuquerque Journal.
