The new chair of the NM Democratic Party just went ahead and said it today in an Albuquerque Journal OpEd. Debra Haaland outed the Journal after they attacked the two highest democratic elected state officials for engaging in politics. Oh my! My hats of to Ms. Haaland for being unafraid to call the editorial crew at the Journal rightwing.
Mayor Berry has hired Erin Gentry, the wife of Legislative Republican Leader and bad boy Nate Gentry to try and help him communicate better. I don't know her and she may be very good at what she does. If she is then lets hope the she makes the Mayor understand that he has to appear on camera once in a while at something other than reading to kids at a grade school. Of course he learned that from the Governor. This aversion to dealing with the press is starting to erode his credibility and I assume that he knows it and that is why he brought someone in to help. One can only wonder if the Governor's aversion to answering questions will ever start eroding her reputation.
The old Archbishop Sheehan, who recently resigned, just couldn't help himself yesterday when he weighed in on Gay sex in another oped. He said it wasn't a sin to be gay, just a sin to have gay sex. I am so glad he is gone. Now he can move into a new house that was purchased for him by the archdiocese on the west side bluffs of the Rio Grande in Albuquerque. Since it was purchased for him by the church there will be no property tax payed on the residence. It is just down the street from the other church owned home that he live in while on active duty. This money is all spent while many churches are in disrepair and many priests and nuns struggle in retirement. Also, while the church pleads it has no money to compensate victims of pedophile priests. Very sad.
