I never handled cash, I didn't deal with the girls per se." -- Bill Richardson campaign aide Kristian Forland, explaining revelations that he was subject to an arrest warrant for writing bad checks and had been investigated for shorting the pay of prostitutes at a Nevada brothel where he worked. Forland, who was Richardson's eastern Nevada field director, resigned from the campaign Thursday.
