ALBUQUERQUE — More than six months after the attorney general ruled that the work records of Gov. Susana Martinez’s security detail are subject to public disclosure laws, her administration is refusing media requests for details on past expenses of state police officers that travel with her and her husband, citing safety.

The New Mexican reported Thursday that the Republican administration says there are only $123.94 in expenses for food for the officers who accompanied Martinez’s husband, Chuck Franco, on a six-day 2011 Louisiana alligator-hunting trip because they were hosted privately. But it refused to say who was the host and denied the paper’s request to see the food receipts that the administration said covered the officers’ meals in New Mexico on the first and last days of the trip.

    Actually KKOB didn't get her elected, it was all the low information democrats who voted for her that did that.

    I wonder if Governor Martinez ever thought about packing a cooler full of her "mean bologna sandwiches" for her husband and his security detail for this hunting trip? After all, she is all about cutting costs and saving the taxpayers money! Ha ha!

    "Records released by the Department of Public Safety in April show seven state police officers filed for more than 1,600 hours of overtime in August, September and October of 2012 and incurred $33,561.58 in lodging and meal expenses. They also filed for $10,167.87 in “mileage and fares” and $53.90 in other transportation costs."

    How does this compare with Bill Richardson's expenses for his giant security entourage, especially during his self-aggrandizing presidential campaign? These numbers are mostly meaningless without something with which to compare.

    Oh, and does anyone really think that Gary King isn't politically motivated in any opinion he offers on what his future gubernatorial competitor must or must not do?

    And

    Wait until the intrepid local talkers at giant Lobos station KKOB raise a stink about this! Things will happen fast then! Oh wait, they work for the GOP and got Martinez elected in the first place... They only complain and whine and make stuff up about Democrats, like Richardson and Denesh.
