Today Mother Jones released an in depth, behind-the-scenes article on Governor Martinez.
“I’ve said repeatedly that Governor Martinez is the worst Governor in New Mexico’s history. After reading this article, you can judge for yourself. The crass, rude and hate filled comments from the Governor, Jay McCleskey and her staff indicate the dislike and contempt they feel for all New Mexicans and even fellow Republicans,” stated DPNM Chairman Sam Bregman.
Mother Jones excerpts:
Item: “What the hell does a commission on women’s cabinet do all day long?” Martinez asked.
“I think [deputy campaign operations director Matt] Stackpole wants to be the director of that so he can study more women,” Kennicott said.
“Well, we have to do what we have to do,” McCleskey chimed in, as Martinez burst out laughing. (As governor, she would line-item veto the commission’s entire budget.)
Item: And in yet another debate prep meeting, Kennicott mocked the language skills of Ben Luján, a former state House speaker and a political icon to New Mexico Latinos: “Somebody told me he’s absolutely eloquent in Spanish, but his English? He sounds like a retard.”
Item: “In private, Martinez implied teachers earned too much: ‘During the campaign, we can’t say it, I guess, because it’s education, but…they already don’t work, you know, two and a half months out of the year.’”
Any doubts? Governor Martinez is the worst Governor in New Mexico’s history.
