On July 18, 2021, former Representative and Democrat floor leader Sheryl Williams Stapleton had officers at her home executing a search warrant for her alleged involvement with a years-long fraud scheme where she is accused of racketeering, money laundry, and graft through the Albuquerque Public Schools. One of the companies alleged to have benefitted from the corruption scheme is “Robotics,” a Washington, D.C.-based company run by her associate.
Now, “ABQ Raw” has uncovered the bodycam footage from an officer who helped execute the warrant at Williams Stapleton’s Albuquerque home. At the home, Stapleton can be seen exiting the house in a blue nightgown where outside are parked what appear to be five cars, four of them being Volvos.
“I need to know what’s going on,” Williams Stapleton said to one of the officers.
The officer replied, “We’ll explain everything to you very soon.”
“A search warrant?” asked Williams Stapleton. When the officer told her she had to stay outside, Williams Stapleton asked, “With all these police?”
“Oh my God. You have all these police for a search warrant?” Another woman came out of the house, saying she didn’t know what was going on. Williams Stapleton replied, “I don’t know what they are [looking] for either.”
She asked a female officer, “IRS? You’re the IRS?” Then the unidentified woman asked for face masks.
A male agent is then seen speaking to Williams Stapleton, handing her what appears to be the search warrant and the affidavit for the search warrant, telling her “In there describes all the information concerning the information that APS (Albuquerque Public Schools) provided us… [inaudible] to Robotics. So, myself and we also have federal agents here with us today as well. They are investigating, of course, the, you know, everything that’s going on in Washington, D.C. concerning…”
Stapleton jumped in, asking, “Robotics?” She added, “What does Robotics have to do with… I do do the program. But I don’t have anything to do with anything in Washington.”
The agent said, “Well, that’s something that we can discuss. And again, the job right now, is to make sure the house is safe and everything else is… and we can talk inside where it’s more comfortable if you wish.”
The video reveals a stunned Williams Stapleton who appeared to try to distance herself from Robotics and its Washington, D.C. operations, which she called a “program.” More information will come out in the coming days through an exclusive Piñon Post report on Williams Stapleton’s alleged graft.
