911 calls of Susana Martinez broke the internet Friday.

The New Mexico Political Report was the first to post the calls online and more than 113,000 people have listened to drunk Susana Martinez on that site alone.  They reported that their site crashed several times Friday as national outlets linked to the story.

Over the weekend, the bad news kept coming for Martinez as The Santa Fe New Mexican reported that federal investigators had subpoenaed travel records, payroll records and other documents of Susana Martinez, her former deputy Amy Orlando and an investigator in her Doña Ana County District Attorney’s Office.

Notably, the subpoenas were listed as being part of a “criminal investigation.”

Now we learn that taxpayers footed the bill for the governor’s holiday bash at the Eldorado Hotel in Santa Fe.

Her spokesman told KRQE news that her taxpayer-funded office funds paid $7,900 for the governor’s holiday gala that ended with the governor’s drunk dial to 911.
