Susana Martinez and Ethics

The Journal revisited the story on GOP Gubernatorial candidate Susana Martinez today.  Martinez defended herself through her campaign spokesman saying everything she did was legal when she bought office supplies from her friend, employee and campaign supporter.  Maybe it was legal, but I am betting it wasn't.  I also know when something isn't ethical and this was not ethical.

Here are a few more questions for someone to follow up on.  Was the DA's office the only customer of this home based office supply store?  How much money did this employee donate to Martinez's campaigns?  Was there any apparatus set up in the DA's office to look at the ethics of transactions there?  Were all taxes paid?  Did any sales from this store go to the Dona Ana County Sheriffs office where Susana's husband is undersheriff?  Just asking!
