Wow, Democrats really can’t stay out of the hot seat, huh? Governors from coast to coast have been facing scandals and controversy, all over how they run their states.
California’s Democratic governor is facing a recall vote over how he handled the pandemic. New York’s governor is dealing with an FBI investigation—and numerous Democrats turning on him.
Now, another Democratic governor is being outed for something she did. While countless residents were suffering under lockdowns and pandemic problems, she was spending tax dollars on a personal, spending spree.
From Fox News:
Records show Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham spent nearly $13,500 over a six-month period in 2020 on items such as groceries, dry cleaning and alcohol, the Santa Fe New Mexican reported.
The booze spending included a purchase in September of more than $200 for five bottles of tequila, two bottles of vodka, two bottles of Merlot and single bottles of whiskey and gin, the report said…
“I didn’t realize the governor was so underpaid that she has to use discretionary money for things that she should be paying for herself,” state House Minority Whip Rod Montoya, a Republican, told the New Mexican.
Republicans in New Mexico are slamming Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham for spending up to $13,500 in tax dollars for personal items.
A report revealed that money was spent on alcohol, as well as luxury items like expensive Wagyu beef.
Conservative lawmakers were shocked to learn that the governor was taking cash out of a discretionary fund for her own expenses. They railed her and her staff for using money set aside for government purposes, on things she should be paying out of her own pocket.
The governor was also reprimanded for hosting meetings at her house, when she told residents they couldn’t celebrate the holidays with families.
When have we seen this kind of thing from Democrats before? Oh, all the time!
All throughout the pandemic, Democrats have been chiding normal folks for not doing “enough.” Yet they’ve shown us they do not intend to suffer alongside of us.
Whether it’s Nancy Pelosi showing off her expensive fridge full of gourmet ice cream or Gavin Newsom attending large dinner parties, Democrats don’t seem to think the rules apply to them.
This one is even worse, because Lujan Grisham decided she shouldn’t have to suffer with the rest of us—and used taxpayer funds to do it.
Do you think this governor should be investigated over this report?
- Democratic governor of New Mexico was blasted for using tax dollars on personal expenses.
- Republican lawmakers slammed Michelle Lujan Grisham for spending $13,500 on alcohol and luxury grocery items.
