How about THIS for a leak?

Richardson could take prominent position in Wen Ho Lee lawsuit

"SANTA FE (AP) - Gov. Bill Richardson could continue to play a prominent role in the lawsuit filed by Wen Ho Lee against the federal government.

Lee claims government officials leaked classified and personal information about him to the media. Richardson was secretary of the Department of Energy at the time.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that Richardson and several others were again identified in a recent federal court ruling as likely sources for the leaks in 1999 that identified Lee as a suspect in an FBI investigation into loss of nuclear secrets to China.

Lee was charged with mishandling classified information but was exonerated on all but one count.

Richardson has denied in sworn testimony that he was the source for the media reports about Lee.

A spokesman for Richardson said he does not comment on pending litigation."
