Richardson to withdraw as Commerce secretary - Politics-

"New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, tapped in December by President-elect Barack Obama to serve as secretary of Commerce, has withdrawn his name for the position, citing a pending investigation into a company that has done business with his state."

One has to wonder why someone so squeaky clean would act so quickly to drop out of public scrutiny.

Are we about to set a record for the largest number of scandals to beset a presidency before it even begins?
