NM governor: No FBI probe of racetrack lease

Jun 4, 2013

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez says she's confident there's no federal investigation of her administration's handling of a lease for a horse-racing track and casino on state land in Albuquerque.

Martinez made the comment Monday when asked about the FBI recently questioning her former campaign finance director, Andrea Goff.

Goff said in a statement over the weekend she had answered FBI questions related to the Downs at Albuquerque and other matters

Goff said none of the questions were related to last week's federal indictment of the governor's former campaign manager, Jamie Estrada, for illegally intercepting email sent to the governor's campaign computer system. One of the charges involves an email sent by Goff.

An FBI spokesman said he couldn't confirm or deny there is an investigation involving the racetrack lease.
