Laura Richardson Still Reaching For The Stars
Even after her foreclosure fiasco, Richardson still considers herself a potential candidate for statewide office.
It sounds crazy, but think about it.
Who better to lead a bankrupt state than a woman who defaulted eight times on her mortgages and lost a house to foreclosure?
Here's the background:
Last year, Capitol Weekly ran a report on the high staff turnover rate in Richardson's office. Richardson did not release a comment for the story. After it ran, she argued in an e-mail to her staff that that was a mistake.
As I said when we first discussed this story, it is my opinion that continuing to allow negative stories/ ignore press requests with no positive response I believe is a mistake at this point given all the negative press that has occurred... [F]irst thing next week, we should discuss a strategy to respond to the Sacramento press... Finally, it further undermines my ability if I were ever to consider running statewide which I have no intentions of but shutting the door internal [sic] is an error I believe.Oh, honey. No.
Richardson can probably get reelected to Congress for as long as she likes. For anything beyond that, the door seems to be shut internally, externally, and every other way.
