On Tuesday, the Republican Party of New Mexico (RPNM) demanded an investigation into Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham over claims by a former staffer, James Hallinan, that the then-candidate for governor groped him.
The calls from RPNM come amid Manhattan, New York’s district attorney Alvin Braggs trying to indict President Donald Trump for “allegedly falsifying documents as ‘legal expenses’ concerning hush money paid to Stormy Daniels and potentially breaking New York campaign finance law” as the party put it in a news release.
The Party continued:
These seven-year-old accusations resurface after Stormy’s hush money case was previously dismissed by a federal judge who ruled the suit “irrelevant.” Stormy also filed a defamation case against Trump and lost, also losing a subsequent appeal to the Supreme Court. Daniels’ lawyer has since been found guilty of extortion and fraud.
The return of these accusations against Trump shows the signs of another political witch hunt. Even those critical of Trump have blasted the district attorney’s potential indictment. One such critic, lawyer and former Harvard law professor, Alan Dershowitz, highlighted the political agenda surrounding this case saying, “This is 100% political.
There is no basis for this prosecution, but with the judiciary in New York, you never know.” These claims are especially cogent when district attorney Braggs has recently vowed he would not prosecute numerous non-violent crimes.
While the investigations into former President Trump have turned up fruitless, there are almost identical charges against Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham that New Mexico prosecutors refuse to investigate.
RPNM Chairman Steve Pearce, a former congressman from New Mexico’s Second Congressional District, wrote, “Instead of harping on finding fault in Trump, who, after years of probing investigation, is continually vindicated, the left should begin an investigation into the eerily similar charges against our Governor.”
Ahead of the 2022 gubernatorial election, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s campaign paid out $150,000 in alleged hush money to her former campaign staffer, who accused her of grabbing his genitals and making sexually demeaning comments to him. The Lujan Grisham campaign then refused to explain an additional $87,500 payment, labeled “legal expenses,” to the law firm believed to have represented the Governor in her sexual harassment case.
“This is a perfect example of the left’s hypocrisy. While the media continues an uproar over weak accusations against Trump, no investigation has been made into the substantial accusations against Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham,” wrote Pearce.
RPNM continued in the press release, “We call for New Mexico prosecutors to investigate the accusations against Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham. RPNM believes nobody is above the law and that truth, not politics, should determine justice.”

Republicans are MORONS!!!
This governor DESTROYED SMALL BUSINESSES and they’re going after the groping scandal to investigate?
How about investigating her Chicom communications or her abuse of powers during Covid when she became a single-handed tyrant?
This is why the NM GOP will always lose!!! They’re all clueless, tired, cowards who only want to be reelected and don’t want to stir the pot because their precious pensions are coming up….
You have to start somewhere. There were SEVERAL lawsuits against her for what she did to small businesses….the NM SC threw them ALL out. They blamed “the scamdemic” as making extreme measures necessary. This is something more tangible that they can stick on her. Tangible meaning that there is a paper trail to back up the allegations. Not to mention a lot of prior evidence. This wasn’t her first offense. She gaslit and fired Riley del Tay for being transgender…that’s sexual harassment. And her bad behavior as NM Health Secretary was legendary. Try on the easy charge and once you get a conviction, tack on the rest of the cans.
Right on ! What about the infamous giant voting district, the use of Dominion machines, unapproved election software , the loss of elected public utility commission , lack of organized shoplifting penalties ,criminal catch and release policy , no school choice ???
Good luck getting left leaning prosecutors to go after MLG . Ain’t gonna happen.
True! Too many left leaning ignorant people in this state.
CBSQRD, you are absolutely right. It ain’t going to happen.
Unlike the case against Trump this groping charge against MLG has real merit.
The GOP in this state are eunuchs. This will go nowhere.
The NM GOP is worthless. More stupidity from the Stupid Party.
Moochie’s groping is only the tip of the iceberg! She is dirty in more ways than not! Expose all of her doings and let’s put her in the ONLY place she needs to receive tax funded monies.. BEHIND BARS!!!
You hit the nail on the head. Only problem being the close net demoncrap collusionalists. There is more criminal abuses of power than anyone can even imagine.
Quite interesting that there are 43,983 sealed indictments in NM. They say there are several people in each indictment. Could a Soros funded MLG be one of them???
I see a bunch of comments about the GOP are stupid, eunuchs, and other stuff we’ll look at the democrats and what they have done for the state since being in power since 1932.
The dumbass democrats have put NMin almost the last category in the US. Last in Education, almost last in Child welfare, One of the highest in crime, the list keeps going on and on. It’s time to get the demos out of office.
Maybe the NM GOP should put out a call to Russia for help with MLG? Maybe the have emails or other information that could help? That would be a great idea.
