We here at the EYE have been watching The New Mexico Secretary of State Duran, saga play out. First when accused of embezzling campaign funds she disappears for three weeks with pay (Maybe she was out playing the slots again). Then she gets a formal indictment and in a short time returns to work.
We are told by our Eyes that our State Representatives will decide what to do about her in the near future. We do not think not much will happen; after all, aren't there other State Officials being looked at for the same thing? Are these same people who will be apart of the politicians who will decide Duran's fate?
Now let’s look at the Police. Here are just a few examples, there are many, many more. Orlando Comacho, fired from A.P.D. found not guilty in a Court of Law. Doyle and Woolover both fired despite both State and Federal Investigations found no crime and no charges brought. Sandy and Perez indicted; Sandy retired and Perez was fired. Pablo Padilla, indicted and fired. But let us not forget Chief Ray Schultz. Our EYES tell us there was a complaint filed with The New Mexico Attorney General well over a year ago reference Taser Gate and nothing has happened. What are they waiting; for the statute of limitations to run out? We don't claim to know the guilt or innocence of anyone. We mainly point out the DOUBLE STANDARD. The police are always accused of covering up for one another; the word “police” should be replaced with the word “politician.”
