Bill Richardson gets a little hands-on in his work:

Lt. Gov. Diane Denish on Monday seemed to back away from statements she made in an Albuquerque newspaper article about Gov. Bill Richardson touching her . . .

For his part, Richardson said heís just being playful. “I tease Diane . . . Itís my way of lessening tension,” Richardson said in the story . . .

“He pokes me,” Denish said when confronted about photos taken of Richardson and her at an appearance in Bernalillo in late October. “He pinches my neck. He touches my hip, my thigh, sort of the side of my leg.”

Denish told The Journal, “I try not to put myself in that situation, trying not to stand or sit next to him” . . .

Dealing with Richardsonís touching and poking “is one of the challenges of this governor,” Denish told The Journal . “He has a lot of good qualities and this is one of the challenges.”

Can you imagine if Richardson were a Republican? Heck, S. Vance Wilkins was removed from office for much the same thing – and he never even assented to the truth of the charges.

  1. If this is something that she (Denish) finds objectionable and he (Richardson) continues, whatever the law calls for, should be done. Period.
