On Tuesday, longtime Michelle Lujan Grisham ally, former business partner, and retiring state Rep. Debbie Armstrong claimed the scandal-ridden alleged sexual predator governor is the “very best” of New Mexico.
“Gov. Lujan Grisham is committed to leading New Mexico toward a brighter future. Every single day, she does everything she can to improve the lives of our families, friends, and neighbors. Over her nearly three years in office, I’ve been so proud of everything Gov. Lujan Grisham has accomplished,” the lawmaker claimed in a fundraising email for Lujan Grisham’s reelection.
Despite the failures of the Lujan Grisham regime other than the constant scandals involving misusing campaign and taxpayer dollars, the Governor has racked up some of the worst statistics for New Mexico, including our failing energy grid with the implementation of the Green New Deal, the lowest child wellbeing rate in the nation, high unemployment rates, among other failures.
Armstrong, who previously was in business with Lujan Grisham at “Delta Consulting,” reportedly grifted the people of New Mexico by upcharging the sick in the state’s high-risk insurance pool despite Obamacare effectively making the program obsolete.
Armstrong was reportedly a witness to the sexual assault allegedly carried out by Lujan Grisham upon a former staffer, James Hallinan. Gov. Lujan Grisham paid off Hallinan over $150,000 in hush money following him coming forward. We previously reported:
He claims this assault happened during a senior staff meeting held at Representative Deborah Armstrong’s (D-Bernalillo) home in the summer of 2018…. Hallinan claimed then-U.S. Rep. Lujan Grisham “took a water bottle and dumped it on my crotch and then slapped and grabbed me in front of everybody.”
But despite all the scandal and the failures, Armstrong claims Lujan Grisham “represents the very best of our state. It’s hardworking, kind New Mexicans like her that make me so proud to call this state my home.”
Gov. Lujan Grisham is up for reelection in 2022, facing off against seven Republicans, including businesswoman Karen Bedonie, Sandoval County Commissioner Jay Block, state Rep. Rebecca Dow, Right to Life of New Mexico executive director Ethel Maharg, businessman Louie Sanchez, former Gary Johnson staffer Tim Walsh, and financier Greg Zanetti.
