I am at a loss for words on this one, except, DISGUSTING!!!! FGGAM MEDIA CENTER just received this news release from the Republican Governors Association:

For Liberal Lujan Grisham, Diamonds Are A Governor’s Best Friend

New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham is the latest Democrat to decide that the rules they impose on their citizens to address the COVID-19 pandemic don’t apply to them. A bombshell report reveals that the governor violated her own stay-at-home order, which closed non-essential businesses, to stock up on some high-end jewelry.

Local Albuquerque news station KRQE broke the news in a scathing story on Tuesday:

IN EARLY APRIL, GOV. LUJAN GRISHAM STRESSED THAT NEW MEXICANS NEEDED TO STAY HOME AND SHOULD ONLY GO OUT FOR ESSENTIAL ITEMS SUCH AS FOOD. SHE ALSO ANNOUNCED THAT ALL NON-ESSENTIAL BUSINESSES WERE CLOSED…

HOWEVER, JUST DAYS AFTER THE APRIL 3RD NEWS CONFERENCE AND A WEEK BEFORE EASTER, KRQE NEWS 13 HAS LEARNED THAT GOV. LUJAN GRISHAM CALLED AN EMPLOYEE AT LILLY BARRACK ON PASEO TO BUY EXPENSIVE JEWELRY. THE JEWELRY WAS BOUGHT OVER THE PHONE, BUT THE EMPLOYEE WENT TO THE STORE, GOT THE JEWELRY AND PLACED IT OUTSIDE THE DOOR OF THE STORE WHERE SOMEONE WHO KNEW THE GOVERNOR PICKED IT UP.

 
The store manager told the station that she “didn’t know about [the governor’s purchase] until after it happened,” and that “no one was allowed in the stores at that time” due to the governor’s order. Lujan Grisham’s order also specifically prohibited curbside pickup at the time.

After getting caught with her hand in the jewelry box, Lujan Grisham gave conflicting explanations to the media about how the transaction happened and even who picked up the jewelry, first saying it was a campaign staffer, and then changing her story to claim it was a “friend.”

Other local jewelry store owners interviewed expressed frustration that they lost “hundreds of thousands of dollars” by complying with the governor’s order while she openly flouted her own rules. When asked about the double standard, Lujan Grisham responded “it depends on who you know.”

“If you thought Nancy Pelosi’s ice cream freezer was out-of-touch, wait until you meet Governor Michelle Antoinette and her lockdown shopping spree,” said RGA Communications Director Amelia Chassé Alcivar. “While she was requiring New Mexico’s small businesses and families to make major sacrifices to protect public health, Michelle Lujan Grisham couldn’t even go a few weeks without treating herself to new jewelry. New Mexicans deserve better.”

FGGAM MEDIA CENTER just received this news release:

Rep. Schmedes asks US Attorney General to look into Senior Care Center evictions, following no response from NM AG

 

Tijeras, NM– State Representative Gregg Schmedes (R-Tijeras) sent a letter to US Attorney General Bill Barr today, asking for his office to investigate evictions at New Mexico senior care facilities during the COVID-19 crisis.

Rep. Schmedes recently sent a letter to NM Attorney General Hector Balderas, flagging the issue for investigation on May 14, 2020. As of today, Rep. Schmedes has not received any formal response from NM AG Balderas.

The request arose following public outrage over reports from local media regarding 54 senior citizens being evicted from the Canyon Medical Rehabilitation Center in Albuquerque at the height of the COVID-19 emergency. Rep. Schmedes has received personal calls from family members of the evictees, and responded by calling the evictions “outrageous” and “egregious.” In addition to forcing vulnerable seniors and their families to seek out alternative facilities to continue care, the patients were only given 24-hour’s notice of their eviction from the facility. The NM Department of Health incentivized the eviction of these individuals by offering the Canyon facility $600 per bed per day, regardless of whether a patient was in the bed or not.

“This administration violated the rights of vulnerable senior citizens, not only by rationing their healthcare but also evicting them from their homes,” said Representative Gregg Schmedes (R-Tijeras), “Somebody must stand up for seniors’ right in New Mexico. If we cannot obtain an in-state investigation, I’ll take the fight out of state. It’s quite possible the Americans with Disabilities Act has been violated here, but simple common sense dictates that I shouldn’t have more rights against eviction than the most vulnerable citizens in our population. Justice must be done.”
