Last Week DPNM filed complaints with the IRS and FEC, asking them to investigate the apparent coordination between Jay McCleskey’s ‘suspect’ PAC and Governor Martinez. The intent of these activities may be to violate and circumvent New Mexico law limiting campaign contributions to candidates.
According to an article appearing in the National Journal on November 21, 2013 “The Man Who Discovered Susana Martinez Could Also Be Her Downfall” reported that Andrea Goff, the former finance director of Susana Martinez’s campaign and of Susana PAC, Governor Martinez’s political action committee, that Governor Martinez, “specifically told her that McCleskey was launching” New Mexico Competes, Inc.
The next day we filed an Inspection of Public Records Request (IPRA) with the Governor’s office and two key state agencies, seeking all e mail and documents from Mr. McCleskey and his wife regarding the 2012 state budget. Based on all of the recent media reports involving Jay McCleskey, there are real questions as to who is making major decisions regarding New Mexico state government. DPNM has an obligation to New Mexico voters to find out if a political consultant, Jay McCleskey, has been given the authority that is only given to an elected Governor.
DPNM has a responsibility to the voters of New Mexico to ensure that Governor Martinez and her ‘undercover’ operatives are adhering to all federal and state campaign laws. She promised full and open transparency as Governor and if she won’t keep her campaign promises, then maybe the IRS and the FEC will make that decision for her.
DPNM is building the future without the ‘in the gutter’ politics of Jay McCleskey and without the shameless ambition Governor Martinez displays for national office, having ignored New Mexico for the past 3 years.
Help us. Right now.
