See interview of State Rep. Ray Begaye by Gadi Schwartz about Begaye's charging the NM state for a free trip!!!! See story at KOB.com titled "Lawmaker caught charging state for free trip."

Why is this story not in the "Daily Times?"

Check the payments to Dan Darnell: 1. Retirement Pay from the city. 2. Pay for City Council (10 to 40 a week job, according to him). 3. Pay from San Juan Safe Communities (40 hour a week job); A. City Money, funneled to him. B. County Money, funneled to him. Now add these all together and compare with travel as a city council or is it when he is allegedly working for San Juan Safe Communities. Now apparently he is on the NM Municipal League, so who pays for that? Answer, Tax Payer. Another question, how does the city and county differentiate federal, state and county money when they funnel the money to Darnell?

Raye Begaye is a scuzzy slimy womanzing low-life who needs to go t jail for his crimes.... As it was posted earlier... "Wasn't Ray Begaye, along with Senator Lynda Lovejoy accusing Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly and the Council Delegates of being "Corrupt-TED" and thieves for stealing thousands of $$$ in tribal slush funds? Looks like Ray Begaye got caught stealing with his hands in the NM Taxpayers cookie jar."

Ray Begaye got caught. The crook needs to resign and go to jail!!

Finally, the truth well told! Are you from the Gallup Independant? In the Farmington area and Shiprock they keep everything hush hush. The president has been informed about Russel's daughter in the DOJ seems like they are manipulating the system!!!! Maybe Ray should try tribal politics, they won't prosecute him there esp. if he has a family member in the DOJ. YA THINK????

What was Ray Begaye thinking when he practically convicted himself in front of the whole state of New Mexico and the Navajo Nation. They have you hook, line, and sinker!

AAA

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. The New Mexico Attorney General's Office in investigating state Rep. Ray Begaye's travel expenses after a television report showed Begaye was reimbursed twice for the same December 2010 trip to Phoenix.

The Attorney General's Office said it was notified of Begaye's possible misconduct last week by the Legislative Council Services after KOB-TV ( http://bit.ly/QIBHQO ) began making inquiries.

The station's investigation showed Begaye may have received $1,000 in vehicle expenses from the state but was provided a rental car by organizers of a national Conference of State Legislators seminar.

The Democrat from Shiprock returned $1,800 to the conference last week.

Begaye has represented District 4 the Legislature since 1999 and is up for re-election in November. He did not return calls seeking comment from the Farmington Daily Times on Thursday.

Maybe you were cut out for Navajo Tribal Politics? You would make a perfect tribal official! Maybe a Northern Navajo Nation Fair Board member! And on the Rez you would have the protection of your niece who works with the Navajo Nation Department of Justice and nobody would suspect a thing right?

Looks like Ray Begaye's a crook, hypocrite, liar, thief..... Kind of interesting that he also some sort of church pastor too. Well Ray Begaye is definitely qualified to be a Shiprock Chapter official now. Shiprock residents: Keep ur trash like Ray Begaye out in Shiprock and not have him pollute Kirtland!!

Looks like Rays brother Russell Begaye is also involved with the Shiprock Fair. Talk about even more corruption. Corruption must run in the Begaye family. Ray needs to go away and resign.
