Lujan Grisham could call special session to save her hide after unpopular veto

More reports are confirming that scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham could call a special session of the New Mexico Legislature to pass an amended junior funding bill after she vetoed the one passed earlier this year by unanimous Senate and House votes.

According to New Mexico Senate Pro-Tem Mimi Steward (D-Bernalillo), the special session could also include measures to alleviate the state’s gas taxes, despite Lujan Grisham and Stewart supporting a bill for two years in a row that would have increased the cost of gasoline anywhere from 35 to 50 cents per gallon.

“We are looking at providing some sort of cost-of-living, cost-of-transportation rebate,” Stewart told the Santa Fe New Mexican.

The Lujan Grisham-vetoed junior funding bill included funding for the Special Olympics, rural economic development, investments in senior centers, food banks, acequias, and equipment to solve child abuse cases. Democrats and Republicans responded with fury after she vetoed the commonsense bill.

Now, Stewart claims the bill can be “fixed” to accommodate Lujan Grisham. “She has brought up problems in the bill, and we are trying to determine if we agree with those,” the Senate Pro-Tem said.

Nora Sackett, the Governor’s press secretary, told the New Mexican, “The governor is committed to prioritizing transparency and accountability in making fiscal decisions, and we are optimistic that we will be able to move forward in partnership with the Legislature in ensuring taxpayer dollars are responsibly spent for the benefit of New Mexicans.” 

Lujan Grisham faces fierce opposition as she seeks another term despite her multiple scandals. A special session would mean a fundraising ban for Lujan Grisham and all legislative candidates, which will not help her in her quest to seek funds to win reelection. State Sen. Joseph Cervantes (D-Doña Ana), “There’s concern about the political optics of [an extraordinary session] in an election year.”

  1. “There’s concern about the political optics of [an extraordinary session] in an election year.” Everything MLG does is bad optics, she is the definition of a corrupt politician.
