New Mexico: Democrat House Majority Leader Under Criminal Investigation- Racketeering, Money Laundering

ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — Authorities are investigating longtime New Mexico legislator Sheryl Williams Stapleton’s possibly illegal connections to a company that received more than $5 million in contracts to do business with the school district where she works and whether she got financial kickbacks.

Authorities executed search warrants at the Albuquerque Public Schools offices and Stapleton’s home this week as part of a criminal investigation into alleged racketeering, money laundering, illegal kickbacks and possible violations of a law governing the conduct of state lawmakers.

No charges have been filed against Stapleton, the Majority Leader and No. 2 Democrat in the state House and a member of the chamber’s education committees. Stapleton, a former teacher, began serving in the New Mexico Legislature in 1995.

She also oversees career technical education for Albuquerque Public Schools, the largest school district in the state and the top employer in Albuquerque. The district serves about 20% of public school students in New Mexico.

A call to Stapleton’s home went unanswered Wednesday, and she did not immediately respond to an email from The Associated Press. Her legislative office said it had no information. more here

  1. That is typical of these Democrat political machines, in fact it’s the rule rather than the exception

  2. Wait, the day’s not over….I’m sure it must be Trump’s fault.

    Or at least the fault of the ‘unjabbed conservatives’.

  3. At first I thought it was another picture, from a different angle, of the woman in the parking lot with the mountable dildo.

  4. I just got back from spending a month in N.M. last week. The democrat government there has just about turned the state into North Korea. Half or more of the businesses in small towns are closed, the rest just about all have help wanted sighs up (I believe they are still paying people to not work). NM state government has always been corrupt, but much more of it and there won’t be anything left but a smoking hole in the ground.

  5. Authorities are investigating?? What Authorities?

    Authorities executed search warrants investigate Democrats ??? Are the Authorities School District, County, State, DOJ?

    Just kidding DOJ doesn’t investigate corrupt Democrats, right Hillary, how about you Joe? Too Big to Prosecute.

  6. I don’t think she’ll get away with it.
    1) the gov has serious law issues of her own (harassment, she had to pay. lol)
    2) Gov already released a statement saying how shocked she was. *eye roll*
    3) whistleblower told all. The school system was in on it, too.

    It’s too ugly for an already in deep shit governor to ignore this.
    And I don’t think this is the end of it.
    Keep pulling that thread.

  7. Nothing would happen to him. He is a democrat. Laws are not for them. Laws are for you and me, little people.
