PACs have long history in state for targeting specific leaders

By Jay Miller

Susana-PAC has been formed to help elect courageous state and local leaders committed to the types of reforms that will move New Mexico forward.
We were all rather surprised when former Gov. Bill Richardson kept his political action committee going strong even after he won his second term as governor and dropped out of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.
But now Gov. Susana Martinez has taken the idea a step further. First she used leftover PAC money from her campaign to buy radio ads and make robocalls to promote her legislative agenda.
Now she has created a second PAC to help fund state and local candidates who agree with her issues. What are those issues?
 Martinez names three in her fundraising announcement — repealing driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants, school reforms and lowering taxes.
Martinez’s e-mail announcement came from a post office box in Albuquerque so it is legit as far as not using government money. The forwarded e-mail I received happened to come from a state employee. It went to a personal e-mail address so that is OK.
It does raise the question, however, of how many state employees received that solicitation. The person who received this e-mail has no idea how Susana-PAC got his personal e-mail address.
