AP Reports Justice Dept. Has Cleared Richardson

The Associated Press says "a person familiar with the investigation" of Gov. Bill Richardson officials and a California investment company called CDR says neither Richardson nor his top aides will be prosecuted on any charges having to do with an alleged pay-to-play scheme.

"It's over. There's nothing. It was killed in Washington," the person told The Associated Press.

The CDR investigation sank Richardson's nomination to be President Obama's secretary of Commerce and sandbagged Lt. Gov. Diane Denish' expect ascent to the governor's office.
