Governor’s Latest Violation Shows a Pattern of Illegal and Unethical Behavior

Santa Fe, May 2, 2022 – Gov. Lujan Grisham refuses to comply with state law again accepting illegal campaign contributions. The Governor has broken state campaign finance law by receiving campaign funds that exceed the legal limit.

Now, Brett Kokinadis, Director of Stop MLG, has filed another complaint surrounding the Governor’s Campaign with the New Mexico State Ethics Commission and the New Mexico Secretary of State. The newly filed complaint asserts that the Governor’s campaign again violated state law by accepting these illegal donations.

The latest violation shows the Governor’s Campaign Committee reported a campaign contribution of $22,000 from the Pueblo of Santo Domingo. This donation exceeds the maximum donation permitted by law per N.M. Stat. § 1-19-34.7.

The maximum contribution limit for Governor candidates is $20,800, split between primary and general elections.

These revelations were uncovered after examining the filings made by “New Mexicans for Michelle,” the Governor’s Campaign Committee. These alleged violations were discovered in the Governor’s 2021 First Biannual and the 2022 Primary report accepting aggregate donations totaling $22,000 from the Pueblo of Santo Domingo.

“New Mexicans are all too aware of the repeated unlawful acts by Gov. Lujan Grisham,” said Kokinadis. ”Campaign finance and reporting violations, lawsuits against her office for alleged violations of the Inspection of Public Records Acts and from the legislature, questionable use of $222,000 of campaign donations to serve as hush money to silence sexual allegation claims and pay attorney fees all demonstrate the Governor’s refusal to comply with the law.  She believes she operates under her own proclaimed laws and policies.”

Kokinadis has filed prior complaints with the Secretary of State and the Ethics Commission on behalf of Stop MLG PAC, including the formerly reported financial violations from Intrepid Potash reported by the Associated Press in October 2021.

“New Mexican voters should be disturbed by all these actions, distractions, and repeated violations by the Governor who continues to believe she is above the law and untouchable.”
