LISTEN: SOS Overdraft On Public Trust

Sep 4, 2015

KUNM Call In Show 9/10 8a:

New Mexico is once again grappling with accusations of corruption in state government. Secretary of State Dianna Duran was elected in 2010 as a reform candidate who would straighten things up after scandal had plagued the office. But now she, too, is tarnished by charges she took money from her campaign coffers and spent it at casinos.
