Why didn’t Nate Gentry tell anyone he broke the law and was on probation while serving as a legislator?
State Representative Nate Gentry was convicted of a crime, even served probation for it, while he was a sitting legislator. But no one knew because Gentry never told. And it’s not his first conviction.
Nate Gentry has quite a record. While working for high-powered politicians in Washington, DC, Gentry was arrested for criminal assault and back home in New Mexico he was arrested for Aggravated DWI after he crashed his luxury car into a dumpster behind a bar.

You and I take our responsibilities seriously – but not Nate Gentry. Instead of taking responsibility he skipped out on court, even failed to show up for his own trial. The court found him a fugitive from justice and issued warrants for his arrest. He was convicted of failing to appear in court.
In Mexico, he was caught with illegal drugs.
Now, as a state legislator, the pattern continues. Last year he was convicted for illegally poaching. He even served on probation while in the legislature – but he never told a soul. We found the records and we’re keeping him honest.
The Albuquerque Journal says Nate Gentry is in line to be the next Speaker of the House if Republicans take over the legislature this November. And the Journal is apparently giving Gentry a pass. He told them the illegal hunting citation was dismissed so they didn’t even check. Good thing we did.
But before he can plan a Republican takeover, he has to win his own seat. Help us inform his voters about Nate’s shady past. Chip in now to help us keep these billboards up and spread the news that should have been news until Nate Gentry covered it up.
