As if the state government has not done enough. Email I got this morning: "Next month, on July 1, 2022, the NM Paid Sick Leave Law will take effect. The Healthy Workplaces Act of 2021 requires all private employers, no matter the size, to pay sick leave to all employees. This includes all employees: full-time, part-time, tipped, temporary and seasonal. Independent contractors are not included as they are not employees. Below are key highlights of the law:
· Employees will earn 1 hour of sick leave for every 30 hours worked, up to a total of 64

So get this. The R's were told "Support SB 6 and you will not get SB 8." Well, how about neither of them? SB 144 is... yes... wait for it... Worse. It removes the perjury statement from absentee ballots. New Mexico is set to STOP all voter fraud on absentee ballots because the definition changes. Think about this. What is the basis for a charge on absentee ballots? It's the perjury statement. If there is no perjury statement, there cannot be a charge.

to trash Poll Challengers, we do NOT have to sponsor the bill. Period. 2) Call your State Senator today and ask them to OPPOSE SB 6. There are way too many bad parts to this bill.

I had a discussion with Sen. Brandt about 2 weeks ago to ADDING Signature Verification to any election integrity bill. This action would force a discussion about WHO is actually voting. After all is said and done, isn’t that the crux of the matter? New Mexico Election Integrity Project wants every qualified elector to be able to cast their ballot and have it counted.

@benraylujan sends me an email making claims about Election Integrity. Here's what he said.
"TODD,
John Lewis said it best —“Democracy is not a state. It is an act.”
I think about those wise words often, but right now in Congress and across America, they ring more true than any other time I’ve been in Washington.
In 2020, voters turned out in record numbers to reject the Trump presidency and flip the Senate. But Republicans are ramping up voter suppression to try to stop the will of the people from ever happening again.

Mr. Jennings, I read your work often. I missed the fact that Brenner was issued a Cease and Desist Order from the company doing the training. Important facts left out of this story. Happy to hear you spent an hour on Critical Race Theory in Rio Rancho. The district has spent much more time than that. Here are few more questions to ask: 1) Let's assume that CRT is not being taught. Why is there training material for teachers being kept from the public? What are they actually trying to hide? It would seem that a Cease and Desist Order would be the

@SteveDeaceShow Serious props. You guys truly have my respect. Your mission of teaching Christians how to live by our beliefs is a worthy endeavor. We listen daily. Ever since your RedState appearance. TY. @DeaceProducer @DeaceOnline My wife is an ADF attorney and preaches your messages to me every morning. Can't tell you how many times she cites you as the evidence of her positions on public policy are correct. Your book arrived yesterday. We have found some resources before you have presented them.

“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…

#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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

There's a saying in finance "Take care of the pennies and dollars will take care of themselves." That should be applied here. The group that should do the investigation is the local board of elections & the challengers on that board. But, as you know, challengers are excluded. #nmpol @NMSOSMaggie Excluding challengers is a breach in electoral process. You failed us. You kept us from seeing where the real decisions were being made. The NM Supreme Court is equally guilty in their decision to support this intensely weak position. There is no redress of

Is it possible that Maggie @NMSOSMaggie would want to discourage Republicans? newsbreakapp.com/n/0XEw0ZHY?s=a… She used to take my calls so that we could get accurate information.

Chris Wallace says President Trump ruined his plans for a 'substantive' debate. I have not turned on #FNS since 2016 after @FoxNewsSunday's Chris Wallace's sloppy interview with Ted Cruz. There is so little value when the reporter/interviewer IS the story. theblaze.com/news/chris-wal… #TurnOffFoxNews I did not like the debate, but I do understand President Trump's anger.

Statement by RPNM: “Today’s ruling is another disappointing setback in the call for equal protection under the law. The Lujan Grisham Administration’s ban on in-house dining is not supported by facts or science in any way and is arbitrary and capricious. This is another example of the Administration exceeding its authority and the High Court accepting it. The ruling manifests the important need for change at the polls this November, including the judiciary.” This statement fails to mention the gravity of the damage caused
