Governor Richardson Violates State Constitution

I know what you’re thinking, this isn’t news. Governor Richardson’s tenure, when visiting the state, has been chock full of state constitution violations, but this is the most recent:

Gov. Bill Richardson’s administration probably violated the state constitution when it asked the state’s two largest universities to pick up part of the salaries for three high-level appointees this year, according to the Attorney General’s Office.

Some other recent example of the Governor’s disregard for the laws of the land include:

  1. Richardson appointed regulatory body supplants legislature and creates law.
  2. Richardson threatens to cut legislature out of the process
  3. Richardson has a pattern of overstepping authority.

Well, at least it looks AG King is going to enforce the law of the land as opposed to rewrite it like his predecessor.
