Chinese Mixed About Bill Richardson’s Exit

Sing Tao Daily; World Journal, Posted: Jan 06, 2009

SAN FRANCISCO – New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson on Sunday withdrew from consideration as President-elect Barack Obama’s nominee for Secretary of Commerce, and although Chinese Americans signed a petition opposing his nomination because of the Wen Ho Lee case, they have mixed feelings about Richardson’s exit, the Sing Tao Daily reports. The petition drew 19,450 signatures as of Sunday. However, many Chinese Americans feel disappointed about Richardson’s withdrawal. Yuyun Li, Chinese American community leader, said Richardson has rich management experience working in government. Having made mistakes on the Wen Ho Lee case doesn’t mean that he’s not qualified to serve in the cabinet. The petition was initiated as an opportunity for Richardson to apologize for his mistakes and move on, but now the goal can’t be reached, said Li. The World Journal reports that Richardson still owes Chinese Americans an apology. He might receive another nomination in the future and without the apology, the Wen Ho Lee case will continue to cloud his future.
