ALBUQUERQUE POLICE INVESTIGATING THREE MURDERS THIS PAST WEEKEND
There doesn’t seem to be a stop to the homicides in New Mexico’s biggest city. After a record number of murders last year and city promises to address the problem, the crisis continues. There have been 13 homicides this year. That’s ahead of the pace from last year! This past weekend saw three fatal shootings in Albuquerque in just over 26 hours. No real solutions yet, and those progressive Democrats this past Session refused to tackle this problem. Remember what the governor said at her State of the State? ”
“We have a chance in this Session to come together as a state and put together the best practices, to be smart and tough on crime”
Nothing came out of this Session to stop this epidemic.
ICYMI: SANTA FE NEW MEXICAN PUBLISHED AN EDITORIAL SLAMMING RPNM CHAIRMAN PEARCE OVER THE FACTS SURROUNDING AN ELECTION BILL–BUT IT WAS THE WRITER WHO GOT HIS FACTS WRONG.
Santa Fe New Mexican columnist Milan Simonich last week wrote a scathing editorial accusing the Party of wrongly interpreting an election bill. House Bill 229 clearly eliminated the need for three forms of identification for voters using absentee ballots. This, in turn, could lead to voter fraud. Simonich criticized the Chairman and Party, claiming this wasn’t true, and that the Party “needs a refresher course in reading comprehension.”
RPNM contacted Simonich, who responded back. He referred us to a section in the bill that discussed absentee ballot APPLICATIONS, not the ballots themselves. There’s a difference.
He was wrong. He had misread the bill himself. We explained his mistake, but the columnist didn’t write back.
The newspaper refused to offer a retraction for his mistake.
Here’s the editorial. Simonich doesn’t get it.
Here’s a piece from blogger John Block. He gets it.
Read below, and it’s crystal clear. (Thankfully, the bill was tabled).
