The Daily Word in lapel videos, paranoid Googlers and cricket chips

The Daily Word

It's Wednesday, May 7th,

and Governor Susanna Martinez, tireless crusader against conflicts of interest in government, is holding a high-powered fundraising dinner for her re-election bid at the home of a lobbyist in Maryland,

following a take-over of the last meeting, City Councilors in Albuquerque are taking steps to keep too much democracy from interfering with the next one,

and APD released footage of their most recent shooting— they only show the moments after the suspect was already dead, but at least we now know that officers properly handcuffed the corpse.


a new study shows that Google users are increasingly worried about the NSA logging their searches and are therefore avoiding the use of "trouble words" like "nuclear facility" and "organized crime,"

a Kickstarter campaign for "cricket chips"—-which are exactly what they sound like--met and surpassed its goal,

and physicists smashed a bunch of atoms together and created the 117th known element. They call it "element 117."

Have a great day!

After months of scathing partisan attacks in the most expensive election cycle in U.S. history, spirits were low at the New Mexico GOP results watch party. It wasn’t looking good for Republicans.

Results in BernCo and N.M.

In Bernalillo County, with 62 of 69 vote centers reporting:

Debbie O'Malley won County Commission District 1

Paseo del Norte / I-25 cash was approved by a landslide (65 percent to 34 percent)

The AMAFCA bond passed

The minimum wage hike passed by a lot (66 percent to 33 percent)

Statewide, with 826 of 944 sites reporting:

Barack Obama and Joe Biden won president and vice president

Martin Heinrich won the Senate seat

Michelle Lujan Grisham won the congressional seat

Carmie Lynn Toulouse will be on the Public Education Commission

Karen Montoya won the District 1 PRC seat

Most of the constitutional amendments are passing, though two of them about the PRC are awfully close. They would pull corporations and insurance out of the PRC's purview.

As a side note: Gary Johnson's only pulling 3.5 percent statewide. If he doesn't cross that 5 percent threshold, the Libertarian Party will not be considered a major party in New Mexico.

Looks like all of the county and state bonds made it through.
