Everyone has that one co-worker or cousin who gets a little too tipsy at the holiday party, but Governor Martinez just took it to a whole new level.
When the staff of the El Dorado Hotel called Santa Fe police at 1:30 am last weekend to evict the partiers in room 465, the partier-in-chief called 9-1-1 herself demanding to know why they were coming.
“I am the governor of the state of New Mexic-oooo… I’m sitting in there with my sister, who is disabled, and about six other people eating pizzz-aa” Susana Martinez tells 911.
“Call them off!” she tells the dispatcher. It’s one epic party and there are six minutes of 911 calls of Susana Martinez explaining it all.
The full story and 911 audio are posted at the New Mexico Political Report.

That’s the Republican Party’s new chair of the national Republican Governor’s Association, and frequent VP mention, Susana Martinez drunk dialing 9-1-1.
There are still some important questions deserving an answer:
- That wasn’t just any party. It was her Governor’s Office staff party. So did taxpayers pay for the room and booze?
- Why was did the governor bring her developmentally disabled sister to a rowdy party? And should police have called Adult Protective Services to check on her sister’s welfare.
- Gov. Martinez admits she was with at least six other people and they had been throwing bottles off the balcony. Who were they?
