Docs. appear to confirm MLG violated another of her lockdown orders

While New Mexicans were under lockdown during Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s brutal pandemic orders, new documents posted by Brett Kokinadis of “Stop MLG PAC” appear to confirm previously speculated reports that the Governor broke her rules to go on a lake trip to Navajo Lake State Park.

Kokinadis wrote that Information of Public Records Act (IPRA) requests “from DFA (Department of Finance and Administration) show Munoz, Valles, & Medina, members of the gov’s security detail, received their Basic Boating certification during #COVID lockdowns. Why would you need to be boating during COVID, @GovMLG?”

One commenter noted on the post that Lujan Grisham “had already imposed her emergency order -which we are now 917 days into- when she was frolicking at Navajo Lake. Maybe this is what she meant by, you can never be too safe. She was ta[l]king about boating.”

The boating certifications, issued through AceBoter.com for Andrea K. Medina and Jose A. Munoz, are marked with a date of September 16, 2020. 

According to the Governor’s office, her August 29, 2020, executive order mandating the pandemic closures ended on September 18, 2020, and was renewed on that date to go through October 16, 2020. It was also renewed after that.

The  Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department (EMNRD), which oversees state parks, noted in a press release on May 28, 2020, that state parks were only open for day use by New Mexico residents starting May 28, but overnight stays (such as having a houseboat) was banned.

Multiple correspondences obtained by the Pinon Post show that many in-state and out-of-state residents requested access to their houseboats at Navajo Lake State Park but were denied.

One person wrote to the Governor’s office on September 8, 2020, “We have been denied access to our private property for several months now,” adding, “We believe our houseboat should be considered a NM residence and its owners allowed to access it.”

ENMRD responded, “Park staff and other law enforcement agencies will be checking identification and enforcing this order” banning access.

Another New Mexican wrote on May 28, 2020, “I’m a citizen of the NW part of NM…. My family and I are disciplined in practicing social isolation,” continuing, “We desperately miss our houseboat at Navajo Lake. We do not have visitors when we stay on the lake during the week.”

“Without visiting Navajo Marina and the lake, I realize you may assume a different opinion; however, they are prepared, [set up] to continue business under the new isolation standards.” 

But according to the documents from Stop MLG PAC and other reports, Lujan Grisham allegedly stayed on Navajo lake during this pandemic lockdown period, which directly violated her day use-only order, per the ENMRD. 

According to a press release from Stop MLG PAC:

Reports included certificates for boating safety courses, VRBO lodging, Navajo Lake Marina fees, and boating packages.

“There are nearly 1,000 pages of receipts containing lavish catered items and alcohol for large parties, excessive daily shopping, travel, and even perhaps activities in Taos, Vail, and boating on a Navajo lake. All this while the Governor scolded New Mexicans and ordered them to stay indoors, away from loved ones, and left to stand in the cold for groceries.”, Kokinadis continued.

Through the inspection of the Public Records Act, Kokinadis was able to target specific violations that violated COVID policies and cost NM taxpayers. In May, Governor Grisham was criticized for violating emergency public health orders, reportedly for keeping a business open so she could buy jewelry. Purchasing jewelry was not the Governor’s only violation of her policy.

Outdoor parks and lakes were closed when these specific boating certifications and Navajo Lake Marina fees were acquired and paid for by taxpayers. Many New Mexicans were banned from enjoying the same outdoor activities the Governor, and her detail enjoyed while on lockdown.

“It’s alarming to see how the Governor and staff waste taxpayer dollars, especially when so many people continue to suffer from her unfair and failed policies. We’re still reviewing the extensive documents and discovering other questionable uses of taxpayer funds.” Kokinadis continued.

Previously, Lujan Grisham was exposed for breaking her pandemic lockdown orders to buy lavish jewelry at Lilly Barrack, an Albuquerque-based luxury jeweler.

The Governor’s Office has been contacted for comment, but no response has been given as of publication.

  1. SHE HAS BEEN STOMPING ON OUR BASIC RIGHTS——– AND IT HAS TO END.. I DIDN’T VOTE FOR THE WOMEN ——— CAUSE I KNEW WHAT SHE WAS. — A CONTROL FREAK FROM THE DEM PARTY. SHE AS GOVERNOR MANAGES THE STATE NOT THE PEOPLE AND HOW AND WHAT WE DO. – BUT SHE THINKS SHE DOES HAVE THAT RIGHT NO SO PEOPLE.——- AND LISTENING TO WHAT SHE ID DOING AND NOW TELL THE DOCTORS AND RAISING THEIR RATES. THAT IS NOT HER DAMN JOB. AND NOW WE MAY BE HAVING DOCTORS LEAVING OUR STATE.– SHE IS AN IDIOT. AND NOT PROTECTING AND WORKING TO KEEP THE WATER AND GAS RUNNING. THIS IS WHAT THE DEMS DO DESTROY WHAT EVER THEY TOUCH.- ENOUGH ALREADY. OH NO DON’T HELP THE FARMERS AND RANCHERS WHO FEED OUR STATE. SHE IS FOLLOWING THE DEM BIDEN PLAY BOOK. WELL TO HELL WITH THAT DARN BOOK. AND STOP SPENDING ANY MORE MONEY ON DUMB PROJECTS. THAT MIGHT BE PAYING FOR PEOPLES SURVIVAL FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF YRS.. JUST REMOVE HER FOR GOOD. WE NEED PEOPLE WHO WORK—- FOR— THE PEOPLE – NOT AGAINST THEM.

    1. Heck Barbara, we just need people who are willing to work. We also need a media that covers all these things, not just the great Pinon Post.

  2. Lucky for Her Thighness, queen MLG there were no whaling ships at Navajo Lake while she was frolicking in the water –
    “THAR SHE BLOWS! IT’S THE GREAT WHITE WHALE – ALL HANDS ON DECK, AWAY ALL BOATS, MAN THE HARPOONS!! HARRR…”
    What a beautiful day for New Mexico.

  3. Rules for thee but not for me! Many of us knew about this for months…this is just the proof of it. I’m really getting blue in the face here: VOTE HER OUT. That’s going to be the only remedy. VEDO…Vote Every Dem Out.

    And all of you who keep pushing Bedonie – enough! Bedonie will not be able to win. Gary Johnson was smart….he switched to Republican because he knew that Libertarians don’t have the numbers to win in this state. And also stop voting on emotion! Use your damned brains! Abortion isn’t going anywhere. Free college isn’t free. Your stimmys aren’t either. All of those debates and activities are DiVERSIONS. Voting Republican is your only way to alleviate any of this.

    1. Even MLG’s payoff checks to the people of NM would only come in the year she was running. I hope when she got married in DC that she found another job there.
      When will NM population wake up? NM spends more per student in education than NY does and yet we still can’t get out of the bottom. Without adding Rio Rancho school district to ABQ’s numbers the failure rate would be below all the states and possibly even DC.

  4. People in New Mexico need to understand… you do what this NM Government tells you to do… PERIOD. You are too stupid to think, you just haven’t discovered this yet. Your opinion for taking care of self is wrong. Always do what the government tells you to do. RIGHT? And… do not whine when you see ‘government’ officials doing otherwise – remember – you don’t have their intelligence or rights. They are special being busy governing you. They don’t always have time to remember to do what the dictate.

    1. You are spot on. The ones who vote for her are most likely the illiterate, illegal and freebie seekers who think she is the reason they get all their free stuff and benefits. So why would they not vote for her? This mindset has been instilled in their minds for decades and supported by those who assist in delivering the free stuff.

  5. When I moved here I wrongly assumed that NM was a state that favored rugged individualism and independence. Turns out it is full of obedient sheep who stand in line for government handouts.

    On a different topic:
    Fox News personality Tomi Lahren visited the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque Thursday to speak to the campus Turning Point USA chapter but had to be escorted to safety by New Mexico State Police after a violent mob shoved into the Student Union, past campus police protecting the doors to the auditorium where she was speaking, and nearly into the auditorium itself while chanting, “F**k Tomi Lahren! F**k Turning Point!”

  6. All of us that live in Farmington knew she was visiting Navajo Lake during the lockdown. The rumor was that she was hanging out with the Sandels.

      1. As if you don’t have your hands dirty, Kokinadis?

        I saw how you posted personal info on the boat certificates( name, date of birth, address, phone number) that showed both Munoz and Medina personal info blasted on Twitter, FB, IG and who knows where else. Shame on you! It was unbeknownst to them and a violation of their personal info.

  7. This is common behavior for communist tyrants. All you have to do is see the hypocrisy at every level of government. They travel the world in their yachts and Lear jets while scolding us like children about fake climate change. They allowed rioting and murder during the “pandemic “ from commie front groups but closed churches. This is just a a replay of the Bolshevik’s in Russia where the communists called themselves progressives also.
