Sandia Labs employees speak out against vaccine mandate threats

In a 15-minute Rumble video posted by a page called “Sandia National Labs Workers for Freedom,” ten Sandia National Labs (SNL) workers spoke out against the vaccine mandate threatening their jobs and livelihoods. Coercive measures are in place, with little access to exemptions and much hostility reported in the workplace. 

Here is one testimony from a Sandia worker:

I have worked at Sandia Labs serving our nation for over seven years. I had intended to work at Sandia for a very long time, possibly until retirement. In the past, I had felt that Sandia valued its employees and their families. One of Sandia’s core values is we respect each other and I quote: ‘Respect is at the core of everything we do. We respect our mission and build trusted relationships with our clients, stakeholders, and each other. We engage today’s talent, bring together diverse perspectives, and recognize that all members of the workforce contribute to the success of the labs. Our diversity of culture, experiences, and beliefs make us better.’… Sandia has not been living up to this value.

Increasingly, it has become a hostile workplace where differing views are not welcome. Those who ask questions or attempt scientific discussion that disagrees with the majority view are met with outright hostility. How is this valuing diversity, how is it inclusion, how is it even science if we are not able to discuss differing research and viewpoints? When the laboratory can mandate that an employee can submit to an unwanted medical procedure or face termination, this is not respect. This is not valuing or listening to your employees. 

When an associate labs director can dismiss and mock those with differing viewpoints when she makes judgments as to which religions may be entitled to their legally protected right to an accommodation, that is not inclusion, it is discrimination. It is discrimination that threatens the livelihood of employees who thought that they were valued. It threatens their ability to provide for their children. It threatens my ability to provide for my children. That is not diversity, it is not inclusion, and it certainly is not respect. 

One employee said, “I may lose my job, but the loss of talent and critical knowledge that is our nation’s security is a far greater concern. I will always serve our nation and my countrymen. Please join us and help us fight back against this flagrant tyranny.” 

Another employee claimed the labs are working without “integrity” and are promoting “division” among the workforce.

Some employees have already faced termination amid the vaccine mandate. One employee recounted his story. During the termination meeting, the human resources person told him, “‘I’m sorry man.’ And I said, ‘Well, I feel like a million bucks because I stood up for what I believe is right.’” He said a prayer after being fired over the mandate, praying, “Father, give me justice.”

Finance report: MLG received $10.4K from Pelosi, paid daughter more cash for cosmetics

The Washington, D.C. swamp is coming to bat for scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham as she fights to stay in power following a calamitous tenure. Other than an economic catastrophe caused by Lujan Grisham leading to at least 40% of small businesses being crushed, millions of dollars have vanished from public agencies and her administration has seen some of the highest turnover in state history, with over 24 cabinet members jumping ship.

Now, as she faces tough opposition from seven declared Republican candidates who aim to take her out, Lujan Grisham’s buddies in Washington are coming to her rescue. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) gave the Governor a maxed-out donation of $10,400 from her reelection fund, while Democrat Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) gave Lujan Grisham $2,500 from his campaign account. 

Rep. Filemon Vela, Jr. (D-TX) gave Lujan Grisham $10,000, Rep. Julia Brownley (D-CA) gave her $1,000, Rep. Annie Kuster (D-NH) gave her $1,000, Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA) gave her $1,000, while Rep. Mark Veasey (D-TX) gave her $1,000. Attorney General Hector Balderas’ political campaign gave her $10,400 and Gov. J.R. Pritzker (D-IL) gave her two donations of $10,400. 

Big PhRMA gave Lujan Grisham $5,000, Johnson & Johnson PAC gave her $5,000, Deloitte Political Action Committee gave her $10,000, marijuana company owned by former Bernalillo County Sheriff Darren White PurLife gave her $10,000, $10,400, $10,400, and $10,400 in four apparently separate accounts, the Bregman Law Firm gave her $10,400, The Bregman Livestock Company gave her $10,400, Keller and Keller gave her $1,000, Garcia Infinity and Garcia Subaru donated $10,400, respectively, while the pro-abortion group EMILY’s List gave her $9,400. 

Marathon Oil gave Lujan Grisham $4,600 and $10,400, despite the Governor being rabidly anti-oil and gas and signing New Mexico’s Green New Deal, the “Energy Transition Act.” 

The Democrat Governors Association (DGA), which Lujan Grisham chairs, gave her two donations of $10,400, which appears to be a conflict of interest since she apparently has oversight on the DGA’s expenditures, which just so happen to benefit her. 

Also included in this report is a donation of $480 to her daughter’s beauty endeavor “Beauty by Erin Grisham,” but the expense is listed as “office expenses.” Piñon Post founder and editor John Block filed an ethics complaint in May against the Governor for her use of campaign funds for hair and makeup — a direct violation of state law. In previous campaign reports, Lujan Grisham listed the hair and makeup payments as “media preparation.” 

In a June 1, 2021, sworn affidavit from Dominic Gabello, Lujan Grisham’s former staffer and campaign consultant, he claimed the latest payment of $480 in April was for the Governor’s State of the State address, which does not appear to fall in line with the purported description of the expenditure, which the Governor’s campaign reported as “office expenses.” 

The Ethics Commission has yet to make a final determination on the ethics complaint, but Lujan Grisham had multiple setbacks after the Commission characterized her lawyer’s arguments defending the misuse of funds as “unconvincing,” denying the campaign’s request for a dismissal of the complaint. 

Lujan Grisham paid $150,000 in campaign funds to a sexual accuser, James Hallinan, who said she poured water over his crotch and then groped him. She claims to be innocent, but most innocent people do not pay off their sexual accusers in hush money, especially to the tune of hundreds of thousands of donors’ money.

Dem state treasurer has bad news for MLG in spending authority case

In a rare move, Democrat State Auditor Tim Eichenberg, who is term-limited in his current position, is siding with two lawmakers over Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham regarding the Governor’s spending of over $600,000 federal dollars that came through the “American Recovery Plan Act.” She spent the federal cash without the Legislature’s approval.

In September, state Sens. Jacob Candelaria (D-Bernalillo) and Greg Baca (R-Valencia) teamed up to sue Lujan Grisham over the misuse of funds.

In a written response ordered by the state Supreme Court, an attorney for Eichenberg, Linda Bennett, asserted that the expenditure of virus relief funds does, indeed, require legislative approval.

Bennett said, “Under the state constitution, only the Legislature has appropriation authority.” 

“The Legislature should have appropriation authority over the funds and then … the governor should get a bill that appropriates the money, and she has the opportunity to veto it or sign it into law. That’s what’s supposed to happen under the constitution.” 

Bennett wrote that “governmental action or inaction as to any particular program, public policy initiative, or governmental interest must be subject to participation by New Mexico citizens through the legislative process in our participatory democracy.”

“That’s how you get the most public participation and accountability over the use of the funds,” said Bennett. “That’s what we want, and that’s what the founders envisioned because we have the same system of government in New Mexico as they have at the federal level. That’s how it’s supposed to work.”

But in response, Lujan Grisham’s spokeswoman Nora Meyers Sackett claimed, “Courts have previously made clear the Legislature may appropriate state, not federal, funds.”

According to a report from the Santa Fe New Mexican, “The state Supreme Court also ordered Lujan Grisham to respond to the lawsuit by Friday. The administration filed a motion Tuesday, which the court granted, allowing its response to be 12,000 words instead of the 6,000 words provided for under the rules.”

State Rep. Stefani Lord calls for MLG’s resignation over groping settlement

Following news on Monday that scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham paid an additional $87,500 in hush money to her sexual accuser, state Rep. Stefani Lord (R-Sandia Park) called for the emballed chief executive to resign in disgrace. 

The payment came months after the Governor paid $62,500 in hush money to a man named James Hallinan who alleged the then-candidate for governor poured water over his crotch and then grabbed his penis through his jeans. The new payment raises the Governor’s sexual assault payment total to $150,000 in donors’ money.

Lord wrote in a statement, “Today I call on Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham to resign from office. Being a woman does not excuse a public official from sexually violating anyone.” She noted, “No elected official is above the law. Her history of sexual harassment is a stain on the state of New Mexico and she should immediately resign. Democrats forced New York Governor Andrew Cuomo from office for much less.”

Cuomo, an ally of Lujan Grisham who visited Joe Biden at the White House alongside the New Mexico Governor, was forced to resign in disgrace following multiple credible accusations against him. However, he never settled with the victims. Lujan Grisham at the time previously said regarding Cuomo’s accusations, “I’m, frankly, in that group of elected leaders, that you believe the individual, you give real credit and credibility there, if you don’t, we are revictimizing brave men and women who come forward.” 

But Lord went a step further in her statement, writing, “I call on the Democratic Party and Democrat leaders to do the right by joining with the voices of her victims in calling for her to step down. If I were a donor to the Governor’s campaign, I would be furious knowing that my money is paying out an enormous sexual abuse settlement, and I would be asking for my donations to be returned. She should not drag our state through the mud by remaining in office.” 

Lujan Grisham was previously accused of grabbing another man’s crotch at a party in 2005, which was revealed before the Governor’s election in 2018. 

“In 2005, we have a party at my girlfriend’s house. It was an artisan party to showcase some art in Santa Fe and help the artists out to sell their products…During the game, it was Michelle’s shot. And she walked around the pool table and walked by me. When she walked by me she grabbed my crotch,” the accuser Eddie Dehart said. He added that Lujan Grisham exclaimed to his girlfriend that “you have a man here.”

But by the Governor’s own standard she is revictimizing Hallinan by claiming his accusations are“suspect and varied claims,” despite the massive settlement. Usually, innocent people do not settle, especially for a figure in the six digits.

Leftist groups caught offering $50 bribes for testimony backing partisan redistricting maps

On Tuesday, it was reported that the Center for Civic Policy (CCP), a billionaire George Soros-funded far-left group, as well as one other, was bribing New Mexicans with $50/each to testify on behalf of the organization’s radical partisan maps, which gerrymander Republicans into the extreme minority.

According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, “Kathleen Sabo, executive director of New Mexico Ethics Watch, said Monday her agency received copies of emails sent to some New Mexicans from both the Center for Civic Policy and NAVA Education Project.”

“In both cases, representatives for those organizations offered $50 stipends to help citizens attend the meetings in person and testify in favor of what they call the ‘People’s Map’ — which would reformat state congressional boundaries by creating a new district with a Hispanic voting population majority,” read the report. 

The so-called “People’s Map” is an ultra-partisan redo of New Mexico’s current congressional and legislative maps. The maps would gerrymander Albuquerque’s South Valley into the Second Congressional District, segregating it from the rest of Albuquerque. Then, the First District would wander east all the way to Roswell, while half of Hobbs would be chopped up into the Third District, which would snake all the way up to Española and Santa Fe. 

Sabo called the bribes to constituents for testimony “concerning.”

But Elizabeth Cuna, the campaign manager for the CCP claimed “such financial support efforts ensure impoverished residents and people of color — who may not have equal access or opportunity — can make their voices heard at events that may affect their lives.” However, the meetings were available to attend via Zoom and the portal for testimony was online, for anyone to access.

Still, Cuna says, “The stipend amount is moral,” adding, “It is a practice that should be encouraged, should be embraced.” Apparently, bribing voters to advocate for heavily partisan maps (the exact opposite of the Citizens Redistricting Committee’s purpose), is “moral” to the far-left extremists.

Melanie Majors, executive director of the New Mexico Foundation for Open Government, asked, “You could attend these meetings virtually, so why would anybody need a stipend to attend it?”

Edward Chávez, the supposed unbiased voice of the Citizens Redistricting Committee ran cover for the dark money organization, saying, “I don’t think these people are showing up and testifying just because they were paid.” 

The final maps proposed to the New Mexico Legislature are to be voted on this Friday, October 15. New Mexicans are encouraged to submit their comments against these extreme CCP maps through the Redistricting Committee’s portal. More information can be found here.

GOP gubernatorial candidate Rebecca Dow raises ‘historic’ quarterly haul

On Monday, gubernatorial candidate and state Rep. Rebecca Dow (R-Truth or Consequences) announced that she had raised a “historic” $440,563, which her campaign says tops what former Gov. Susana Martinez raised in her first gubernatorial campaign report.

According to the campaign, Dow has received contributions from over 1,300 donors. “She earned financial support from donors in every county in the state. Last month, Dow announced that she also had a full roster of County Chairs to cover every county in the state as well,” reads the press release.

“I’m truly honored and humbled for the support this campaign has received. I don’t think people are investing in this campaign because they need someone to cheerlead or inspire them. The people of New Mexico already have the spirit and drive to succeed all on their own. What I’m doing is the same thing I’ll do when I’m elected Governor — listen to what people really need, and discuss real solutions to make it happen,” said Dow.

“New Mexico hasn’t had that kind of leadership in a long time. Instead, MLG has handed us disorganization in our state departments with executive staff turnover every month, stifling mandates that squash businesses, horrifying crimes in our towns and at our borders without appropriate safety measures, and an injection of Critical Race Theory into our schools without any input from parents, teachers or school districts. It’s time for a different kind of leader who chooses people over politics and cares about the everyday New Mexican,” said Dow.

The news comes as Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham paid a former staffer over $150,000 in hush money after she allegedly groped him at a party. Although the embattled Governor denies the groping claims, the payment to the staffer is raising eyebrows from both Democrats and Republicans.

Lujan Grisham claims to have raised $2.5 million for her reelection campaign, although that is likely not all raised in this current fundraising quarter. Throughout her pleas for campaign cash, Lujan Grisham has gone a nasty route, bashing Republican opponents as “climate deniers” who belong to the “party of anti-masking.” With the sexual assault settlement, 6% of her donors’ funds are going to alleged groping victims. 

As other candidates announce their fundraising hauls, the Piñon Post will be keeping readers up-to-date on it.

MLG pays her alleged groping victim $87.5K more in hush money

On Monday, it was reported that alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham had paid her ex-staffer, James Hallinan, an extra $87,500 more after Hallinan alleged the then-candidate for governor poured water over his crotch and then groped him. She expended these funds from her gubernatorial campaign, making her donors fork over the hush money.

The Governor previously gave Hallinan $62,500, making the total amount of the settlement to the alleged groping victim around $150,000. 

According to Lujan Grisham’s campaign spokeswoman Kendall Witmer, the payments were part of a settlement that “resolved suspect and varied claims made by Mr. Hallinan, including his search for employment and clients following his tumultuous tenure on the 2018 campaign.” 

It is unclear why Lujan Grisham paid the alleged sexual assault victim if she claims Hallinan’s allegations are “suspect.” Traditionally, innocent people do not pay their alleged victims to stay quiet. 

“The campaign reached this settlement in 2020 due to the expense of litigating business disputes and to prevent any distraction during the height of the… pandemic,” Witmer said, trying to blame the hundreds of thousands of dollars paid on the Governor focusing on the virus.

“I was focused on the pandemic, and I’ll stand by that decision every minute of every day,” Lujan Grisham claimed during a June news conference, describing the decision to settle.

Lujan Grisham was silent as scandal-ridden alleged serial sexual assailant Gov. Andrew Cuomo resigned in disgrace following multiple women coming forward accusing him of misconduct.

But this is not the first time Lujan Grisham has been faced a sexual assault scandal. In 2018, before Lujan Grisham became governor, another man named Eddie Dehart came forward accusing the Governor of similar conduct at a 2005 party, which led to the crumbling of Dehart’s relationship.

“In 2005, we have a party at my girlfriend’s house. It was an artisan party to showcase some art in Santa Fe and help the artists out to sell their products…During the game, it was Michelle’s shot. And she walked around the pool table and walked by me. When she walked by me she grabbed my crotch,” Dehart said in the video. He said that Lujan Grisham exclaimed to his girlfriend that “you have a man here.”

The over $150,000 in payments the Governor made for political silence from Hallinan will likely be a campaign issue as Lujan Grisham tries to cling to power in 2022 despite a record of failure, scandal, and sexual assault payments.

GOP field of lieutenant gubernatorial candidates grows

As the 2022 elections are right around the corner, more candidates are jumping into races to make a difference for New Mexico. As the Republican gubernatorial field remains at seven candidates, the lieutenant gubernatorial field is growing, with two more Republicans jumping into the race.

Once the lone Republican candidate for many months, Anise Golden Morper is joined by Isabella Solis, a former Doña Ana County Commissioner, Air Force veteran Zeke Rodriguez, and Anthony (Ant) Thornton, a retired aerospace engineer.

“I’m convinced New Mexico is in trouble, and we’re running out of time,” said Solis. “New Mexico is ranked the 44th worst economy among all the states in the country. We have the 45th worst infrastructure. We’re the 47th worst state for crime and safety, 49th for the opportunity to succeed, and worst of all, we’re 50th in the nation when it comes to educating our children.”

Solis is focusing her campaign on education, fixing New Mexico’s failing economy, and tackling the corruption in Santa Fe.

“We don’t have to stand for it.  We can transform New Mexico from one of America’s

worst states to one of its greatest. We can have schools that teach again.  We can have safer streets and communities.  We can unleash our economy and provide jobs for our people.  We can fix the corruption and hypocrisy in Santa Fe.  We can demand accountability from our leaders.  We can provide a future for our children,” Solis said.

Rodriguez currently owns a shop in Las Cruces that sells “Premium CBD Products” called Continual Growth. Rodriguez announced his candidacy at the end of August at an event in Taylor, Arizona, which he called “the most patriotic town I’ve ever been to. We need more of this everywhere for our great country.” 

He is attempting to run on a parallel ticket with Republican gubernatorial candidate Karen Bedonie and is hitting on many of the same issues. These include tackling voter fraud, fixing education, promoting public health, boosting the state’s economy, and championing law and order policies, according to his website

Specifically, regarding education, Rodriguez wants to “[e]iminate Marxist ideology” from public education systems, implement an “America First” curriculum into the public school system, and promote school choice, including charter schools. 

Thornton is focusing his campaign on four main issues, including education, public safety, jobs, and election integrity. An experienced aerospace engineer who worked for both Sandia Labs and later Lockheed Martin, Thornton writes on his website that “he became the first African American Director in Sandia’s history.” 

On his website, Thornton writes, “Under decades of Democrat rule, New Mexico has sunk to the bottom in education, economic opportunity and employment. Our Democrat leadership has, for years, instilled corruption in the halls of the Roundhouse, hurled us into fiscal chaos, mortgaged our future and stripped us of many rights. This must stop!”

“We need innovative leadership for the 21st century. A fresh approach requires leaders who demand more for our people, for our children, and for our future. I know that the future of New Mexico can be bright if we elevate our dismal national standing in education, adjust our policies to attract new business in our state, and make our cities safe places to live for our families.”

Regarding Thornton’s law enforcement stance, he writes that “Crime is local and should be addressed by community policing,” including hiring more police officers and properly prosecuting law-breakers. 

Golden Morper, whose campaign theme plays off of her last name, “Our Golden Opportunity,” is a third-generation New Mexican, a Christian, a sister of the Philanthropic Educational Organization (P.E.O.), a real estate broker, an auctioneer, an ombudsman, and member of the Federation of Republican Women.

Throughout her campaign, she has attended many pro-law enforcement functions and has made respect for law enforcement, including officers from local sheriffs to the U.S. Border Patrol, a key issue in her campaign, amid a national assault on law enforcers, with many far-left initiatives targeted at “defunding” the police.

All the candidates must first make it out of the primary election, which will be held on June 7, 2022. Whoever makes it out of the primary will run on a ticket with the Republican gubernatorial nominee to defeat incumbent Democrat Gov. Lujan Grisham and Lt. Gov. Howie Morales — both left-wing extremists. 

There is still time to oppose the CCP’s extreme gerrymandered redistricting maps

The New Mexico Citizens Redistricting Committee held its last public meeting on Friday to hear what the public has to say about redistricting and their needs. The Committee heard from communities of interest from across the state, including Native American, Hispanic, and other communities that offered their ideas for what proper representation means. 

The Center for Civic Policy (CCP), a dark money group funded heavily by out-of-state billionaire financier George Soros, who destabilized the British Pound at the Bank of England, and millionaire Rob McKay, whose foundation had its non-profit status revoked in 2018, is trying to partisanly gerrymander the map to favor one side. 

The group claims its extremely partisan congressional map (Concept H) is the “people’s map,” but it would erase the only Native American member of New Mexico’s congressional delegation — GOP Rep. Yvette Herrell — and likely place in a far-leftist. The map would also segregate the South Valley of Albuquerque into the Second District and lump a large chunk of Albuquerque into a strange district that sprawls all the way to Roswell. The strange shape of the districts also would lump Hobbs with communities like Española and Santa Fe, which have astronomically different cultures and needs.

The CCP’s state legislative map (Concept G) does much of the same, achieving an extreme partisan gerrymander while also erasing rural representation. It would chop communities like Clovis into thirds while not taking into account the needs of energy-producing, farming, ranching, and other communities that are the backbone of the state’s economy. The map also takes into account at least 8 Native American-majority districts to ensure fair representation. The CCP’s map does not have this many Tribal districts.

Members are urged to comment using what Members Lisa Curtis and Robert Rhatigan have had to say at the August 2, 2021 meeting that radical changes should not happen unless there is overwhelming support for such changes:

Board Member Curtis said, “It seems like a radical change to any of the districts — since we’re not an elected body — … the public would have to say ‘we want a radical change.’” Member Curtis said, “there would have to be overwhelming support for a radical change from the current districts” and “We are imposing something on people if we’re doing radical change without the public jumping up and saying ‘this is what we want.’” 

Board Member Rhatigan added, “…unless there’s overwhelming public consensus to change the general composition of our three congressional districts, I’m inclined to draw districts that we have one [representative] in Albuquerque and we have one northern district and a southern district.”

Members of the public still have time to make their voices heard by submitting comment in the Redistricting Committee’s comment portal. Citizens are urged to advocate against the CCP’s maps while supporting the “Rural Representation” map proposed by Megan Richardson and state House map concept B. 

For the Congressional map, citizens should ask for minimal changes in the redistricting of the three congressional districts, supporting Concepts A, B, C, or G. Concept H, the CCP’s map should be advocated against for its clear partisanship. Ex-state Sen. and far-left Committee Member Michael Sanchez took offense on Friday to the words “extreme” and“radical” to talk about the CCP’s maps, which appears to show he is trying to advocate for them.

YOUR ACTION TO OPPOSE EXTREME REDISTRICTING IS VITAL FOR THE FUTURE OF OUR STATE.

Please submit comments by Friday, October 15, when the Committee will adopt concept maps to propose to the Legislature.

If nothing else, the commentary submitted against the CCP’s maps is the most important in defeating the far-left, partisan maps that do the diametric opposite of the Citizens Redistricting Committee’s purpose — to give the power to the PEOPLE, not out-of-state-funded dark money groups.

In desperate move, embattled Santa Fe mayor cooks up fake news on opponent

In a new desperate move by embattled Santa Fe Mayor Alan Webber, his campaign is now sending out mailers implying that the Santa Fe New Mexican endorsed him and is opposed to his opponent, City Councilor JoAnne Vigil Coppler.

On the mailer, the text of a far-left New Mexican reader’s opinion piece bashing the City Councilor reads, “Vigil Coppler for mayor? Absolutely not,” with the words “My View” in small letters above it, while below it the Santa Fe New Mexican logo is affixed.  

The mailer does not use the word “opinion” or credit the author of the opinion hit piece, written by Lis Lendvai, who erroneously deceived the public about Vigil Coppler’s stance on certain proposals voted on by the City Council.

Editor Phil Casaus said, “Our attorney’s belief is that you can quote The New Mexican and even identify it in text as a source, but I think our concern is the logo.”

Casaus said that for others, the mailer “has the opportunity to imply to the reader that that’s The New Mexican’s viewpoint on Ms. Vigil Coppler, and we haven’t endorsed in this race.”

The Webber campaign lied about Vigil Coppler’s position on masks, with Webber’s attorney Sascha Anderson claiming, “The campaign seeks to educate voters about Vigil Coppler’s vote against the City’s mask ordinance because we feel that if you vote no on something as simple as a mask ordinance you are not qualified to be Mayor.”

Vigil Coppler reiterated she voted against the mask ordinance because it was a “poorly written measure” that “had so many loopholes” and unenforceable provisions. For example, she said, the law allowed police to issue violators a written warning for a first offense. Vigil Coppler said the ordinance didn’t address how police would know whether someone had received a prior warning and that repeat violators wouldn’t admit to previous offenses to avoid a fine.” 

“Instead of Alan Webber running on his own dismal record, he deliberately attempts to distort my City Council testimony on the mask legislation,” Vigil Coppler added.

Anderson refused to tell the New Mexican how much was spent by the Webber campaign on the fake news mailer and claimed it would be disclosed on the campaign’s next report. Election Day for all municipal races in New Mexico is less than a month away and early voting is in full-swing. Election Day is November 2.
