Why is it that for the Governor's first 3 Legislative sessions (and 1 Special Session) there was finger pointing and THEY (Democrats) bashing, but now in and ELECTION year, she is smiling and talking about Bi-partisanship?
she was caught. And she has the bought ear of NM media, so she lies her way thru everything. Did you see Foley try on NMIF, to cover over the backlash she is getting nationally, by claiming it's settled? As Joe Monahan said today, nothing is settled, they are investigating and finding nothing good about her.
She is a Texas Biz-person's b*tt puppet.

Jingle bells,
something smells,
up in Santa Fe.
Texas grins,
when Martinez wins,
up in Santa Fe - HEY!
To the curb,
with the word,
Dems you win again.(prediction is for Dems to win, she has the lowest approval rate of any sitting guv in NM ever)
Never fear,
Reason is near,
Welcome to Santa Fe - HEY!
Now it's time,
for NM to climb,
the ladder of success.
(not one thing has improved since she has taken over, it's all gone down)
Raise your thumb,
honesty's come,
come to Santa Fe - HEY!
I'm so glad,
the Reps will go,
to Federal prison once again.
Makes my day,
she's can't get laid,
she spent her pay to play - HEY!(Down's Deal racino illegal)
It's all set,
you can bet,
Dems are right back in.
So give a cheer,
and have a beer,
Martinez cut money for DWI enforcement - HEY!
Don't be dumb,
keep the bums,
out of Santa Fe.
Dems are here to stay,
and so's this song,
Martinez is on the way - OUT!
Martinez is on the way OUT!

Funny how Corndogz says "no more pay-to-play" and conveniently ignored her downs scandal.
Also failed to notice that she appointed positions in government to people who contributed to her campaign.
For example you can find the contribution on the nm sunshine portal which once elected was followed by:
Not only giving the contributor business, but then gives Bowman a position here:
So if you pay with Martinez you get to play with Martinez.
Hmmm kinda strange she can get away with it and yet she sought out and prosecuted former judge Michael Murphy for practically the same thing. She spent her entire campaign denouncing pay-to-play and yet she does the exact same thing.
And as the fool keeps saying she'll win again. Of course she will it seems the criminal element outnumbers the honest people in New Mexico by droves.
Funny thing is the very things she attacks are actually some of the people who voted for'll take some time but she'll figure it out. Her supporters won't, but she will. Wait for it... and you'll see the most amazing flip-flop in history.
She is play acting. Anti-social and psychotic people do that-do you one little favor ,then claim they helped you on something else, etc. McCleskey is crazy, he controls her, so I'm sure she obeyed and did it.

Wow, just got done reading about the Martinez administration's shenanigans and hijinks on the CREW website (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington). Seems to be a person who surrounds herself with, and sanctions the activities of, conniving, sneaky, and vindictive people.
But to be fair, I googled her name and a list of accomplishments and found the " " website. And I get the impression she pushes a lot of dubious projects (and lots of taxpayer monies) to a lot of out of state businesses. Campaign contributors of hers, I suspect.
Bill Richardson redux?
Bill brought money and jobs here, not out of state.

After all the Martinez WORST place finishes in the last year, looks like Clesky has em on Topix lockdown, sticking to the tissues, not the issues.

Even that big, STFU, tall glass of aGUa from alamo, who makes big money, has disappeared from Topix.

I would just like to add that Susanna Martinez is currently Governor of the State of New Mexico, which is in between Arizona and Texas.

Only thing Susana Martinez cares about is her self and those Texas Tea Baggies. She cares nothing for the little guy. Those Texas oil men that are stealing Gas and Oil from NM that got her elected the first time.

So Martinez tells the oversight committees who are in charge of checking her spending and watching for her corruption that she isn't going to cooperate with them any more.

Well, of course you wouldn't want to be transparent and cooperative...

Has she taken a position on the law that allows police to match pictures of participants of political gatherings against driver licenses using facial recognition?

quote of the day.

During the 2010 campaign, when some thought that cutting teachers’ salaries might be inevitable because of the budget crisis, Martinez said in a taped conversation,“During the campaign, we can’t say it, I guess, because it’s education, but…[teachers] already don’t work, you know, two and a half months out of the year.”

Provided as an antidote to the happy face BS commercials funded by special interests that we are being bombarded with waaaay too early for the election.

Good job Tejana. Lets give them the whole enchilada......

Subject:[Graphic Tapes] In her own words. Susana Martinez caught on tape attacking Hispanic biz, women, teachers and Democrats
Date: Apr 16, 2014 9:08 AM


The true Susana Martinez, in her own words.

That's the first big takeaway from today's Mother Jones article, "Is New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez the Next Sarah Palin?"

One Republican state legislator described her tactics thusly: "Nastiness, misinformation, innuendo, and flat-out lies have created a toxic political environment."

Just a week after Martinez released her highly-polished campaign ad denouncing her national ambitions and promoting her warm and fuzzy side, new audio recordings from inside her 2010 campaign show the sexist, belittling and vindictive nature of the true Susana Martinez behind closed doors.

On Teachers & Hiding Her True Positions During the Campaign

Martinez told campaign staffers she would hide her opinions on teachers during the campaign, but she didn’t like teachers who “already don’t work” referring to summer school breaks.

She then laughs with her chief campaign strategist, Jay McCleskey, about ways to avoid accusations that she hid her true anti-teacher feelings during the campaign.

On Democrats as "Little Bitches" and "Little Retards"

Susana Martinez laughs and plays along as an aide calls Ben Lujan (former Speaker of the House and father of NM Congressman Ben Ray Lujan) is a “little retard.”

Martinez slams her former Democratic opponent, Diane Denish, as “that little b*tch.”

Belittling Hispanic Business Group and Women's Job Program

Martinez dismisses the role of the “Hispano Chamber of Culture, or I don’t know what the hell it was”(Hispano Chamber of Commerce) and Commission on the Status of Women which helps women learn job skills and advocates for policies equally including women in the workplace.

She laughs and agrees when her campaign manager, Jay McCleskey, makes a sexist comment suggesting one of their male campaign staffers wants to run that commission to “study more women.”

Very interesting, and Mother Jones has the tapes where you can listen to the Gov, in her own words. ooooops

Spot on BHL. Looks like you illustrious Governor is a simple and mean spirited person that somehow defrauded the public in getting elected. Hopefully, in the next election, you will have a person on the Left that can upright your state to what it once was.

I think we owe it to the rest of the country to ensure her career doesn't advance. Ill bet a majority of Alaskans wish they'd never put Palin in a drivers seat
