A series of search warrant affidavits released by the U.S. Attorney’s Office on Tuesday provides more details about the investigation into the alleged interception of Gov. Susana Martinez’s emails by her former campaign manager.

According to the affidavits, Jamie Estrada, who was indicted last week on charges of hijacking Martinez’s emails, sent an email on Dec. 23, 2009, to Martinez’s political consultant, Jay McCleskey, after he was fired from the campaign, saying, “I can’t understand why she wouldn’t think there are political consequences for treating me poorly and unfairly.”

    This is embarrassing for our state on two levels.
    -First, high level politics in this state has become so petty that people are committing theft to gather information on their political enemies.
    -Second, our state was ridiculous enough to elect an individual as Governor that had no clue (or just did not respect the law enough to know) that conducting state business must be done on state provided devices and domains. Didn’t this Governor campaign highly on government transparency?
    Enough of this finger pointing. As far as this issue is concerned, there are no innocent individuals, and the guilt should be placed across the board.

    What is NM AG Gary Kings roll in this? I know for a fact that he was involved in the distribution of these e-mails to The Reporter and was visited by the FBI.[
