Santa Fe – Governor Martinez’s Christmas Parties are now legendary. Her post-party 911 call to Santa Fe Police drew national attention after she used the occasion to demand the names of anyone who complained about the rowdy post-gala pizza party she attended in an upscale Santa Fe hotel. It also didn’t help that she told police to go away instead of investigating. State Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez noted that anyone else would likely have gone to jail for that action alone:
“Any regular person who tried to do what she did would be subject to a charge of obstruction” Sen. Sanchez #NMPol https://t.co/hQCsoLLfqm

After the fact, we learn that the governor’s office paid for the big Christmas blowout was paid for by taxpayers at a cost of more than $7,900. What was wrong with the office potluck?
