Did the guv misspend campaign funds?

Common Cause New Mexico said today that Gov. Susana Martinez may have violated the Campaign Reporting Act. She spent extra cash from her campaign war chest on radio ads advocating an end to driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants.

“Funding this kind of lobbying advertisement seems to be a clear violation of this statue,” he says.

Allen was also once an editor at the Alibi.
