LAS VEGAS — One of Democratic presidential candidate Bill Richardson’s top organizers in rural Nevada resigned Thursday after the campaign learned he had worked for a brothel and was wanted on a felony arrest warrant in California.
“We did not know about all of this,” Richardson spokesman Josh McNeil said. “We accepted his resignation today.”
Kristian Forland, the campaign’s eastern Nevada field director, is being sought by Los Angeles County authorities for failure to appear on four counts of writing bad checks. Forland also was arrested twice on a similar bad check charge out of Las Vegas.
