Dean Of Nevada Press Corps: Richardson Lies On Yucca

Nevada journalist Jon Ralston is sending out updates... with his permission, here's one he posted about Bill Richardson and Yucca Mountain:

Richardson: "All my life I opposed the site"

Need I tell everyone, again, this is a flat-out lie. I am still waiting for his campaign to produce one statement from Richardson when he was DOE secretary that shows he was against the dump as he moved it along, testified before Congress that it was progressing and did not answer Nevada governors' requests to disqualify it when he could.

Truth is: All his life he supported Yucca Mountain.... until he ran for
president.
