In an end-of-the-month fundraising email sent out on Tuesday, Rep. Teresa Leger Fernandez (D-NM-03) used President Donald Trump as a vehicle to attempt to stir up some last-minute donations before the clock hit midnight.
Her email used personal attacks on the 45th President and made far-out claims of abuse of power, as well as racism, misogyny, and what she called “hatred of every kind.”
The first-term Democrat wrote, “We watched for four years as Donald Trump espoused racism, misogyny, and hatred of every kind — while the GOP stood by him. We watched him abuse the power of his high office for his own gain — and the GOP stood by him.”
“It became clear to me that if we were going to secure responsible governance for the people of this nation, leaders would have to stand up and step up to fight for what is right: for justice, decency, the rule of law, and the common good.”
Leger Fernandez, a supporter of abortion up-to-birth, the Green New Deal, and all other positions held by the fringe of the Democrat Party’s farthest left base, appears to be making an argument that she and Democrats are somehow morally superior to President Trump and Republicans by making vague arguments and alluding to buzzwords to belittle Republicans.
As the Democrat claims, “We watched him abuse the power of his high office for his own gain,” but no specific charges are noted. It also appears to be ironic she is using this argument, as she is allies of scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham who the New Mexico Supreme Court ruled abused her power in office to usurp authority from the legislative branch.
Lujan Grisham also abused her power to cover up sexual assault allegations of a former staffer with $150,000 in hush money. The apparent victim, James Hallinan, accused the Governor of pouring water over his crotch and then groping him through his jeans.
Despite these horrific actions taken by the Governor, Leger Fernandez has no apparent issue with Lujan Grisham’s abuses of power in office. It appears she is scraping at the bottom of the barrel with her leftist supporters to squeeze them dry of any remaining Trump hatred in the form of campaign donations.
Recently, the National Republican Congressional Committee put Leger Fernandez on an expanded list of Democrat targets in 2022, signaling a glimmer of hope for Northern New Mexico Republicans in the Third District. It is still unclear, however, how district lines will be drawn, with a special legislative session rumored to begin on December 6, 2021.
