“I’m truly honored to have been chosen to serve on this important committee. I believe election integrity is the core issue moving into the 2022 midterm elections. Voters who do not have faith in the election process will not want to participate. It’s imperative that we restore
the voters’ trust in our political process. Fair and honest elections are key to helping our party win vital races and to improve the lives of constituents here in New Mexico and around the nation.” — Committeewoman Tina Dziuk newmexico.gop/2021/02/17/rnc…
We are expecting that Ms. Dziuk will be very interested in SB 454. A comparison of the recent GA election reform law show huge gaps with New Mexico's "comprehensive" overhaul. This will likely come up in the special session. No seriously folks. It won't just be about marijuana
It is likely to include a revisit of this bill. It has some excellent elements. The pile of garbage coming out of the New Mexico State Senate means a lot of smelly hand-picking in order to find "nuggets". Compromise is not the highest principle here. #unroll @threadreaderapp

#nmpol. Urgent problem has developed over election integrity issues. SB 48 just came out of Senate Judiciary with a Do Pass with amendments. It is a bad bill. R's caused this problem last special session and now they are making the mistake permanent.
Ok. The time has come. SB 48 went from 23 pages to a new bill with... wait for it... 146 pages now called SB 454. It codifies portions of the SB 04. Bad bills building on more bad bills. It now cloaks a portion of the election code. Really. Call ALL the Senators now.
Tell them to VOTE AGAINST SB 454. Cloaking devices? In the election code? Uh...yeah. How about clear language guaranteeing transparency? Umm....not here. What about the needs to make decisions at the lowest possible level? Ummm...nope. This bill puts more power

New Mexico governor spent thousands in taxypayer money on groceries, liquor, and dry cleaning: Report. Didn't Diana Duran go to jail for a month for behavior just like this? Wasn't it about this same amount of money? @HectorBalderas @pgessing #nmpol a.msn.com/01/en-us/BB1dS…
@koat7news @KOB4 @krqe Seems like there is a much bigger news story here. Why would @HectorBalderas prosecute Diana Duran for about $14k in misuse of donor and NOT prosecute @GovMLG for misuse of taxpayer money of about $13,500? Is it because of the source of the money?
Perhaps it's ok to misuse taxpayer money, but not donor money. Wait. No. It must be the $500 difference. At $13,500 you're ok, but at $14,000 you're over the line. Mmmm. Wait. Maybe it's because @GovMLG is the governor and Diana Duran was only the Secretary of State. Yeah.

So last night the Sandoval County Commission voted to support the formation of a public bank using taxpayer funds. Yeah. A Republican not only voted yes, Dave Heil sponsored the legislation. Yes tax payers money will be lent to those who can't get money at a private bank.
Think about this for a moment. There are banks in the state making loans to those with credit scores below 620. Taxpayers already supplement housing in SO MANY ways. I have seen loans where ACORN literally just added fake income to the loan application. And it got approved.
And yet we now have a Republican who says he wants to use your tax dollars to help those people who cannot qualify for a loan at a private bank. Dave Heil is not a fiscal conservative. Not careful with your tax dollars. Don't let him tell you otherwise. @threadreaderapp #unroll

1/6 Electors in 7 States Cast Dueling Votes for Trump theepochtimes.com/electors-in-7-… via @epochtimes Now the ball rests with @LeaderTownsend. It is your ball. I would ask the Senate of NM but they have hampered the election in NM. Good job @Pearce4NM.
2/6 We have plenty of people fired up and ready to support. Time to write to.... wait for it.... wait for it.... Ben Ray Lujan, Deb Halland, Martin Heinrich, Theresa Ledger and @Yvette4congress. Write those cards and letters. Talk about the fraud you saw in this state.
3/6 Talk about the unsupervised drop boxes. Talk about the fact that Maggie excluded poll challengers from meaningful access to the decision making points of the absentee balloting process. Talk about the fact that County Clerks agreed to change the rules mid election.

pinonpost.com/nm-dominion-vo… This post lays out a process. It does not follow that process to it's own logical conclusion. We need hand counts. That's how these other counties in MI, AZ and now GA have found issues. @NMSOSMaggie says she has no evidence of fraud.
Well, duh. She hasn't looked for it either. Watching a selected county's Canvass Board is more evidence that there has not been any serious efforts to examine what has happened in NM. It was embarrassing to see these folks ask questions. What I saw were leading questions.
As if there were efforts to NOT embarrass election officials. I watched a seasoned County Clerk attack the integrity of veteran. She literally said that this poll challenger had not read SB 04. @JohnforNM references SB 04 in the above article. And he is right about

Dem Congresswoman Says Party Will Be 'Torn Apart' if It Pushes Progressive Platforms: 'Don't Say Socialism Ever Again'. Please say that to our @GovMLG. She is turning NM int a petri dish for socialism. We are about to be redistricted into a permanent newsbreakapp.com/n/0XXyIcsL?s=a…
fight between which side of the Democrat party owns conservative districts. We have had all checks on election Integrity removed so that there cannot be faith in election results. The NM Supreme Court has sided with the socialist in NM. Our access to redress of grievances
through the Canvass Boards are closed meetings, as is the same for our Legislature. There is no way to record our grievances with our government. Our right to go to court was denied in a suit in the Primary. The government decided we did not need to be represented in that case
