So why is New Mexico and Albuquerque in the mess it and first on every bad list and last on every good list?
If you read The Santa Fe New
Mexican you can see for yourself. Two stories on November 7 and 8
reported in the paper are well worth reading. Of course our local media
either didn't report the stories or lightly skipped over them. It seems
The F.B.I. is investigating Jay McClesky and his fund raising
activities for Governor Martinez back to her run for her first term.
Part of the investigation is money going to McClesky from the 2011
inauguration committee going to political consultant Jay McClesky. McClesky also raised money for our loved Mayor Richard Berry. McClesky
is very well paid. Martinez paid McClesky $21,418.00 a month from April
to October or $128,512.00. Martinez also paid McClesky wife Nicole,
owner of Public Opinion Strategies , $20.000.00 for the same time
period. Former Secretary Of State paid McClesky $365,530.00 from 2010
TO 2014. McClesky was paid tens of thousands of dollars by the
Republican Governors Association in 2014 and Public Opinion Strategies $
63,000.00. F.B.I. are questioning the lease agreement issued by
Martinez Administration to The Downs Racetrack And Casino since early
Wait a minute wasn't Darren White in charge of the casino?
Federal Grand Jury indicted James Estrada, Martinez former Campaign
Manager for illegally intercepting Martinez emails. Estrada said that
the emails contained McClesky involvement in State Business and
possible corruption. A March 2012 text message sent by McClesky to
Andrea Goff, a fundraiser for Martinez , requesting they run donations
to Martinez by William Windham, through another political committee
because the competing bidder for the Down Lease complained about Windham
winning the lease. Think that is enough ?
Oh no there is more. Federal
Investigators have subpoenaed records from New Mexico Taxation And
Revenue to see if retaliatory audits were conducted on former members
of Martinez political team when they ran afoul of Martinez. Brent
Eastwood was audited for his gross receipts taxes, after he filed a
whistleblower lawsuit that named top officials of wrongdoing and was
fired. Nathanial Thompkins , attorney for Eastwood also received an
audit. Tom Tinnin received an audit after he resigned after a dispute
with Martinez over The Downs Racetrack And Casino Lease. Andrea Goff
former fundraiser for Martinez has had several audits by the State. Of
course no one will answer questions to state officials and McClesky
saying it's under investigation. Where have we heard that before?
A.P.D. of course! Does this tax thing sound anything like how Schultz used Internal
This shows why we are in the state of affairs we are in. Keep
your mouth shut on corruption and you're ok. Open your mouth and you
become a target for political revenge. We at the EYE ask one simple
question. Is there an honest politician in New Mexico ?
The Piercing Truth
This is right from the dictionary and seems to describe Albuquerque, Berry and Schultz. Fascism (f ash ,izem) noun An authoritarian right wing system of government and/or social organization.

Fascism tends to include a belief in the supremacy of one group over another, national, ethnic, especially social strata or monetarily; a contempt for democracy, an insistence on obedience to a powerful leader, and a strong demagogic approach.
