A special prosecutor representing the state in a fraud and embezzlement case against former Secretary of State Rebecca Vigil-Giron filed a final-hour motion last week asking the New Mexico Supreme Court to re-examine the case.

Joseph E. Campbell says he asked the high court to reopen the case — it had been dismissed by a District Court, and an appeals court upheld the decision in April — because there are still valid legal arguments to be made.

    Unfortunately, corruption is now the rule - rather than the exception.

    I've been battling Romney & RICO gang for years;
    and keep getting case tossed (in spite of confessions)
    due to corruption.

    Hang in there and yield not - in prosecuting this (obvious) case of betrayal.

    Lest we encourage the scoundrels to do even more material adverse harms.
