We are spending our day in Hawaii. It has been great to get away to a totally different environment.
We are sitting out on the Lanai drinking coffee and watching outriggers race by. I perused the Journal and noticed more ink on the non profit group's voter education programs being questionable. There is certainly nothing wrong with looking them over and Attorney General Gary King says he is doing so. While he is at it I wish he would look closer at the money flow from the NRA and the Oil and Gas Industry into New Mexico politics. That is much more clear cut and much more damaging than a group that simply exposes how legislators vote.
If you stop and think about it, why has no one ever done a full analysis on those two special interest groups money influence on New Mexico Politics? Probably because it would take a gargantuan effort to really trace the money.
