State Attorney General criticizes GOP records request

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A request made by the New Mexico Republican Party under the state Inspection of Public Records Act drew fire Friday from Democratic Attorney General Gary King.

The party sent the request to King’s office two weeks ago seeking any emails and attachments concerning public business that were sent by King from his personal email addresses.

King said during a news conference that his office has delivered some of the requested documents and that he planned to review several thousands of his own emails over the next month to determine whether any involve public business as part of the request.

King called the request a “political ploy,” saying it came just four days after two Democratic state lawmakers asked his office to investigate whether employees in Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration possibly violated state governmental conduct rules by conducting state business through personal emails.

“First and foremost, I want to let the Republican Party know that the attorney general’s office will not be intimidated and that we intend — as we always do — to carry out a thorough investigation of what was going on,” King said.
