Mo Problems

The media is following up on republican Diana Duran's problems of violating campaign finance laws even as she serves as Secretary of State.  The followups consist of finding a democrat who has done the same thing.  The front page story on Representative Mo Maestas's careless campaign reporting is an eye opener.  I had always viewed him as Mr. Clean, but he is either suspect or really incompetent in managing his campaign money.  I am totally surprised and disappointed.  Anyone who has run campaigns must know that when 10% of the money you raise doesn't show up on the books, there is something really wrong. But, he stood  up and took the heat with an apology and attempted to fix things.

Diana Duran continues to hide in her bunker.  My bet is that  she is in negotiations with the AG to lessen charges against her to misdemeanors in order to keep her state pension.  We will see.

Someone posted a funny thing on Facebook today.   In order to fight crime legalize drugs.  And then put Comcast Customer Service in charge of distributing narcotics.

Must be a total idiot if he can't keep track of $100,000 and follow the rules in this day and age of scrutiny. Seems like he has the qualifications to be the Mayor of Albuquerque given the track records of those knuckleheads.

Either way, we do not need folks like him, we need competent, honest politicians in both parties.

Politicians like Diana Duran and Mo Maestas are what give New Mexico politics a super bad name, as compared to the normal bad name politics usually brings to mind.
