It's called political business and here in NM it is the standard thing they do.

The two worst in recent times as Bill Richardson and Marty Chavez.

But regardless of party it is done at all levels including President Obama, yes folks he gave many jobs to unqualified friends, most quit by now.

I look forward to what the Atty Gen (King) comes up with. Bregman is no pillar of society either, but if this CoS clown is guilty he should be shitcanned.

I'm not a politician, but as a businessman that is the worst thing to do. You don't hire friends because most often they take advantage of the friendship and become lazy or goof off, etc. knowing their friend who got them the job will let them slide.

But this is politics and most often practical business is never part of the equation.

However there are times when you trust your friend more than someone who might look good on paper.

Well, Obama wasn't qualified either, so what did you expect? lol

Wow, I really must be losing it. I actually agree with you on something!

Dr. Blunty says for you to take two aspirin and call me in the morning.

I'm sure by that time you will have gained it all back and feel better.

I'm starting to feel kind of sorry for Susana. Really. I think the people who got her into office are demonstrating that they never were honest and that she's being used as a tool.

I wonder how long it will take her to figure that out.

I miss Bruce King. At least he was entertaining. Too bad his son has all the charm and apparent wit of a bucket of cold spit.

The Finance Authority scandal just recently broke, and now this.

It's time for the Governor to show us what she is made of by cleaning house. If she fails to clean house, then it will be obvious that all she brings is just a different flavour of the same old political sleaze and ineptitude that New Mexico typically suffers from.

I seriously doubt that Susanna is going to "clean house". The only thing that Susanna has shown is that she is GREAT at cutting funding for New Mexicans that are most in need, the disabled and elderly.

Now this is my opinion, but could be factual if you really think about it.

When Susana was District Attorney she was in a position to really cause a person problems. She also had the goods on a ton of people, obviously, she got into the system saw the good ol' boy network in action and used it against all of them which is how she railroaded a lot of judges and other lawyers out of Las Cruces.

So she becomes governor and she thinks she can do the same thing except she's now up against a slew of lawyers, politicians, who all know the system better than her and she is getting her ass handed to her.

Yes I know my opinion of her is incredibly biased, but when she has a legal duty to do what is right by the law and comply with it something she swore to do it shows to me and would hope to everyone else that she never thinks anything through. She just acts because she wants what she wants and will do practically anything to get it and doesn't care who she hurts along the way.

Just left of right we may have differed on somethings or well one specific thing, but that's over now or at least I think it is still no official order...

Agreed, with all the BS being uncovered its time she does some house cleaning if she wants another term. I expected more from her administration than this.

Although with Bregman as one of the early candidates (so it seems) that may not be hard to overcome for her.

As you often do, you view the issue, and others, from one perspective only. I'll not bother elaborating on the matter as it wouldn't change your mind.

She's only halfway through her term. Give her time.

Perhaps, only time will tell, but I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt - on ~most~ matters. If there's dirt I suspect King will find it, and if valid so be it!

If the potential job seeker is qualified, he should get the job, friend or no. Sounds like Gardner was going to consult with someone (Ryan) and not merely make the decision on his own.

Love the way the news media tells the story as Gardner giving state "jobs" to friends...when the recording mentions exactly one person, and one potential job.

Pretty thin.

Deep fried gator tail nuggets are tasty, especially with some nice hush puppies.
