Governor Lies About Being Drafted by Athletics

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson acknowledged that he was not really drafted by the Kansas City Athletics in 1966.

"After being notified of the situation and after researching the matter . . . I came to the conclusion that I was not drafted by the A's," he said.

Still, he stands by his story, claiming that he never lied, but always believed it to be true.

Saw this last night and thought about blogging about it. Then I read the article and realized it wasn't his fault:
"In the summer of 1967, he played for the amateur Cape Cod League's Cotuit (Mass.) Kettleers. The words 'Drafted by K.C.' appear next to his name on a faded team program, the Journal reported.
'When I saw that program in 1967, I was convinced I was drafted," Richardson said. "And it stayed with me all these years.'
