On Monday, the Republican Governors Association released a hard-hitting new ad targeting Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham for her hypocrisy during the pandemic.
The ad, featuring local liberal news clips, highlights the Governor forcing New Mexicans to stand in freezing cold breadlines while she pampered herself in the Governor’s mansion, buying booze, Wagyu beef. The ad also went after her expensive shopping trip for jewelry at a shuttered Albuquerque jewelry store. Gov. Lujan Grisham also spent big taxpayer bucks on her dog, with $800 expenses to clean carpets and even purchase a new doggy door–all at New Mexicans’ expense.
At one point in the ad, a narrator says, “You stepped up and made hard sacrifices when asked, but what about Michelle Lujan Grisham?”
The Governor is likely not going to take too kindly to the truth-filled ad, which directly calls her out for her pandemic hypocrisy of living the high life (off the taxpayers) while New Mexicans starve.
“Families are in serious need, the state coffers are bare, and people have sacrificed their freedoms as the pandemic rolls on,” Will Reinert, a spokesman for the Republican Governors Association wrote in a statement. “However, nothing is stopping Lujan Grisham from using state funds to fuel her lavish lifestyle or from making exceptions to the rules for herself. Wagyu beef, Crown Royal, taxpayer money, lockdown carveouts, just add Governor Lujan Grisham, and you have a recipe for terrible leadership.”
