MLG points fingers to defend her abuse of power

According to a new report, scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham is trying to defend her abuse of power by unilateral spending of hundreds of millions of federal funds during the pandemic, which has sparked a lawsuit from two lawmakers, a Democrat, and a Republican.

The Governor’s chief general counsel Holly Agajanian claimed “precedent” gave Lujan Grisham sole authority to blow  $1.7 billion in federal monies, while also saying, “unallocated dollars from the federal American Rescue Plan Act are currently in a suspense account – not the state treasury – [meaning] the Legislature lacks the legal reach to earmark the money,” according to the Albuquerque Journal.

“In short, the ARPA funds are not subject to appropriation because they are not ‘in the treasury,’ ” Agajanian argued.

Sens. Greg Baca (R-Valencia) and Jacob Candelaria (D-Bernalillo), both attorneys, argued the case as a “constitutional emergency of generational importance.”

Democrat State Treasurer Tim Eichenberg reaffirmed the two lawmakers’ arguments in a filing requested by the Supreme Court on his agency’s opinion of the matter dealing a crippling blow to Lujan Grisham’s argument.

But Agajanian tried to point the finger back at legislators who don’t approve of Lujan Grisham’s lawless spending. “It would be just as much of a violation of [the] separation of powers to intrude on the governor’s executive managerial function to administer federal funds in the state’s custody,” she claimed.

Lujan Grisham has spent millions of these critical federal dollars to bribe New Mexicans to get inoculated, with a $10 million lottery, $100 stipends for shots at certain points in the pandemic, and ​​$5 million to incentivize New Mexicans to stay home and not work — a move that is crushing the economy and fueling a staffing shortage. 

Despite the Governor’s office claiming it is meeting with lawmakers to discuss spending the remainder of the federal cash, she hasn’t specified who she is speaking with and what proposals such conversations would be about. 

The Governor is currently embroiled in a sexual assault scandal, where she paid a former staffer, James Hallinan, $150,000 in hush money from her campaign after she was said to have poured water over his crotch and then groped him. Another man came forward in 2018 alleging similar conduct from Lujan Grisham. She is also under investigation by the State Ethics Commission due to a complaint by Piñon Post founder and editor John Block over Lujan Grisham spending over $8,000 in donors’ funds for paying her daughter for hair and makeup.

  1. Let’s not forget that she lied about who paid for her trip to Azerbaijan (BP + the Israeli and Turkish governments), and had to give back a bunch of the bribe gifts she took from them. Her regime is riddled with corruption and shameful behavior. Lock this psycho up.

  2. NM Govenor liar and thief

    Typical DEMOCRAP, LEFITIST behavior. Blame everyone, don’t look at what evil MLG is doing look at someone else. She will continue this behavior until New Mexicans stand up for themselves and say enough.
