Democrat Governor of New Mexico facing accusations of using taxpayer funds to fund baby shower

People who can’t be trusted in small matters certainly can’t be trusted in the big ones. Perhaps New Mexico voters should keep that in mind.

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham allegedly used taxpayer funds to pay for baby shower decorations and then lied about it, Breitbart reported. The New Mexico Democrat’s office denied the allegation despite being show evidence.

The state sets aside a discretionary account to be used for promotional events for New Mexico. However, it seems Lujan Grisham treated this as her own party planning account.

“I didn’t use state funds to pay for a baby shower. Maybe you should do your facts better,” a woman Breitbart identified as Lujan Grisham told a reporter in a video clip that does not show her face. “Nope. None.”

A voice off camera then told Lujan Grisham not to “listen to” the person who asked the question.” Oh, I know. Well, he should do better fact-checking his own self,” Lujan Grisham responded.

Unfortunately, Breitbart literally has the receipts. The news outlet published copies of the sales slips from January 2020 showing pink baby shower decorations, including items such as pink safety pin and pacifier charms, purchased from Party City.

When confronted with this evidence, Lujan Grisham’s spokesperson claimed that a portion of the purchase was reimbursed and that no taxpayer dollars were used for the purchase. However, her office failed to account for the other portion amounting to $68.91.

This is not the first time Lujan Grisham was caught allegedly misusing funds. Another news outlet reported that the governor dipped into the contingency fund for purchases like alcohol, wagyu beef, and carpet cleaner to remove stains left by her pets.

The amount of money in question isn’t that significant. However, if the governor is willing to use taxpayer dollars on frivolous purchases unrelated to her job, then how can she be trusted in more important matters? Voters will answer that question this November at the ballot box.

Ingram said Republican Senate candidate J.D. Vance now best represents her views for the future of Ohio.
Over the past year, more than one million voters have switched to Republican ahead of the midterms.
“Roughly 1.7 million Americans have changed their party affiliation over the past 12 months,” Fox News 
“Two-thirds of those have gone to the GOP, while just 630,000 have switched to the Democratic Party, according to the report,” it added.
The new shift appears to be part of a red wave that began last year with the election of Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin in Virginia that may soon sweep across the nation.
