Governor Susana Martinez and Secretary of State Diana Duran with the help of the Albuquerque Journal continue their xenophobia rants by trying to scare the bejesus out of people on foreign nationals voting in our elections. That will be a small number but it will be milked to the max in the name of right wing politics. Maybe it would help if they worked hard on getting our own citizens to vote. Less than half do so. At any rate, as the number of hispanics grow in our state as evidenced by the latest census data, these hispanic elected officials should do less work on fear mongering wedge issues and more on real policy.
Also, have you found it interesting that there have been no statements out of the Labs on the current crisis? Wouldn't you expect to see their experts on CNN and other outlets explaining what is going on? My friend Rodger brought this up and opined that the labs have turned inward and have little regard for being transparent on big issues. He said there used to be large public information staffs that were proactive. Now they are invisible. I would have to agree.
