    Steve Alford political controversy

    Steve Alford is catching some heat for apparently agreeing to sell the opportunity to get your picture taken with him for $1000 a pop in order to raise money for a New Mexico politician. After finding out his boss wasn't too happy about his employees publicly endorsing candidates Steve backed off.
    University of New Mexico head basketball coach Steve Alford was playing political hardball Wednesday as the controversy over his attendance at a fund-raiser for ABQ GOP congressional contender Darren White moved off this blog and into the outside media. "I wouldn't know Darren White if he walked in front of me. It got falsely advertised. I was just stopping by," declared the celebrity coach.

    It doesn't look like Coach Steve will be posing for those thousand dollar photos with partygoers after all, does it? Whether Alford will be there in any role remains under discussion.
    But, hey, don't think Steve is just overflowing with integrity? Just ask him about it and he'll be glad to tell you he is.
    Announcing the news on 770 KKOB-AM, sportsmeister Scott Stiegler said Alford described himself "as a man of his word" and said despite the hyper-controversy over his role at the party, he will still attend White's "An evening with Coach Steve Alford " scheduled for the home of UNM lobbyist Joe Thompson. The party is being co-hosted by UNM regents Jack Fortner and Don Chalmers.
