RPNM Files Complaints Against Democrat Senators, Candidates for Fundraising During Special Session

Albuquerque, NM – The Republican Party of New Mexico has filed complaints with the Secretary of State against Democrat Senators Daniel Ivey-Soto and William Soules, as well as Democrat candidate Greg Frazier, for soliciting donations during the special session, in violation of state law.

Sen. Ivey-Soto’s website continued to feature a donate button on the night of Thursday, September 29, 2016, after the special session was called. Sen. Soules’s Facebook page continues to provide a link to donate as of Sunday October 2, 2016. The donate button and webpage on Frazier’s website remains live as of Monday, October 3, 2016 as well.

“Three Democrat candidates for office including two sitting state senators ignored campaign finance law in this state and are continuing to solicit donations after the special session was called,” said Republican Party of New Mexico Spokesman Tucker Keene. “Not only is it against the law, it is irresponsible for sitting legislators to invite corruption and disregard important laws like this protecting against the buying and selling of influence in the legislature, just so they can continue to pad their campaign war chests.”
