State Whistleblower Says Udall's Daughter In Contempt

Here's the latest from the attorneys for Frank Foy, the former state investment official who claims he was forced out of a job for declining to invest public money with a company that had donated to Gov. Bill Richardson's political campaigns:

In a motion mailed for filing yesterday, Foy's attorneys ask that New Mexico's First Judicial District Court find former Richardson political consultant Amanda Cooper in contempt for failing to comply with a February subpoena. Cooper is US Sen. Tom Udall's daughter and a major behind-the-scenes player in New Mexico Democratic politics.

In exhibits appended to Foy's filing, attorneys for Cooper said that the documents requested from a defunct Richardson foundation, for which Cooper served as executive director, were irrelevant to Foy's case. Foy's lawyers argue that Richardson's Moving America Forward Foundation "was a conduit or vehicle for making kickbacks...while perhaps making the kickbacks tax deductible."

Here's a PDF copy of the filing by Foy's attorney, Victor Marshall of Albuquerque. Cooper is represented by Joseph E Sandler of Washington, DC.

Marshall's wants the foundation to hand over financial records within three days, but the court may reject his motion.
