New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson joins John Kerry in the Hall of False Records for fabricated history. He is acknowledging the "error" (the mistake being that he lied about his past) and going with the pretense that he believed he was drafted and this is all news to him. How pathetic can you get?
For nearly four decades, Richardson has maintained he was drafted by baseball's Kansas City Athletics. The claim has appeared in brief biography releases and has been reported by several news agencies.
But an investigation by the Albuquerque Journal turned up no record of Richardson's claim he was drafted in 1966 by the Kansas City A's, who have since moved to Oakland. There's no record of any other team drafting him, either.
The governor acknowledged the error in a story in today's paper.
