UPDATE BELOW. Some questions Bill Richardson is going to have a hard time answering. In December, the OAS (Organization of American States) appointed him a "special envoy" on immigration and related matters.

Has anyone holding such a position ever run for president before?

Is Bill Richardson required to register as a Foreign Agent under the FARA Act (usdoj.gov/criminal/fara)?

Can we ever really be sure exactly who Bill Richardson is representing?

5/24/07 UPDATE: In response to my query, Bill Richardson's communication director informs me:

'Governor Richardson has never "worked" for the OAS. Last year he was appointed a special envoy to the Secretary General for Latin America. That means the SG could call on the Governor to assist, on a purely humanitarian and voluntary basis, if he felt there was a situation that required diplomacy from someone like the Governor, who has extensive experience with and ties to Latin America.'

In other words, he still has his "appointment". Shouldn't a candidate for president resign all such appointments, so that those who know about this issue don't question whether they have divided loyalties? Can we get a list of the "situations" where Bill Richardson has represented the OAS? Has he done so while on the campaign trail, or perhaps when supposedly working for the residents of New Mexico?
