If it smells fishy, it’s probably fishy

-A A +A

Have you heard about this Republican outfit that’s spending considerable money to run a radio ad praising Gov. Susana Martinez’s handling of the mess she created when she fired 15 New Mexico behavioral health services and hired five Arizona services in their place?
The name the sponsors of that ad chose for themselves is, get this, “New Mexico Competes,” and its headed by a long-time Republican operative. Those who have heard the ad say its “message” is that Martinez is a fighter against Medicaid fraud.
Think of it as flimflam at its worst.
If Gov. Martinez is fighting fraud in Medicaid where’s the evidence? The audit conducted by the Boston-based Public Consulting Group that culminated in Martinez’s firing of those New Mexico health providers is under lock and key. The governor who is being touted as tough on Medicaid fraud won’t let the people of her state see the thing. It’s a secret, even to news media types.
How comes it to be that some out-of-state political operatives running a radio commercial know more about the Public Consulting Group’s audit than taxpaying New Mexicans who paid for it?
Is it possible “New Mexico Competes” conspires to con us humble New Mexicans?
