BREAKING: WILSON NAMED IN PAY-TO-PLAY PROBE

 

 

ProgressNow New Mexico has uncovered documents showing that former-congresswoman and current US Senate candidate Heather Wilson has been named in a “pay-to-play” investigation being conducted by the New Mexico Attorney General’s Office.  

You might remember way back in 2008 when news reports questioned the use of federal grants earmarked by Wilson to the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department that ended up at a company owned by Wilson campaign donors.  

Now, ProgressNow New Mexico has learned that New Mexico’s Attorney General has been conducting an investigation and both Heather Wilson and then-sheriff Darren White were called in for questioning.  

The Albuquerque Journal and others reported on the story in 2011 but never fully explored the extent of the scandal. We did.
