Here is a memo that may or may not exist.

To:  Chief, State Police
From:  Governor Martinez, Secretary of State Duran
RE:  Workforce

Effective immediately you are to send all uniformed and non uniformed state police officers to the Santa Fe Training Center for use as political tools by this administration.  We have delivered to you 65,000 voter records and instruct you and your men and women to find evidence of voter fraud perpetrated by Democrats.

All public safety responsibilities of these officers are now in abeyance until such time as proof of said voter fraud is found.  No matter how long it takes.

You are instructed to tell local and county law enforcement agencies they are on their own in crime fighting, domestic abuse cases, rape cases, murder investigations, DWI enforcement and other public service functions.  After all, what is more important than finding allegations against the last administration.

We know this is not what the officers signed up for but there is a new regime in place and they need to get in step.

I understand that Motor Vehicle Division employees will be patrolling the highways and Highway Department staff will issue driver's licenses and registrations, although the Forestry Department will take care of trailer tags. Also, until further notice, Ben Lujan will selecting the governor's wardrobe each morning.

Yep, this is an example of what politicians, in general, are good at.

By the way, kidding aside, you are on the main issue here, to me.

I read the Sunday Journal article about this. That reporter did a good job of finding a lot of people to point out that Gov. Martinez and her Secretary of State are going about this improperly, but never were the perpetrators asked why they are going about it improperly (or for that matter why the secretary of state's office isn't equipped to do it's job, and this is her job.)

I haven't followed the story (I only read this story because I was called in to work Sunday to pick up a truck from the shop, and afterward I thought I'd enjoy a lovely breakfast at the TA truck stop downtown, where I feel more at home than at home, and I bought a Journal to read, for a dollar god blessed fifty cents, by the way - talk about sticker shock!)

But has the governor been asked these questions by the Journal? Does anyone know why they are so recklessly pursuing this? A vendetta I can see, but to ignore all common sense, and the law? I'm having trouble understanding why she is going to such lengths. The Journal should be asking her to rebut all those people who are saying, basically, that she is nuts about this, which might shed some light on it, if not slow her down. but then the Journal isn't interested in that.

The reporter didn't say he had tried unsuccessfully to contact her or the secretary of state, that the governor is spending her weekends hiding under her desk, nothing.
