First, you create a state agency that has a very unclear duty, give it no budget and then continue to name controversial people to head it.
Welcome to the New Mexico Film Museum.
First, Gov. Richardson appointed former Secretary of State Rebecca Vigil-Giron to the post at a salary of more than $85,000-per-year. You know her, the person being investigated by the federal government for misusing election funds.
Not only that, she was to earn about $8,000 more than the last director. This despite the fact the museum has no budget, archives, collections or an office.
