How low will they go?
Please indulge a lengthy post, as many of you have asked me about the recent news of my email theft and I thought I would take time on my flight back to New Mexico to provide you a thorough update.
Last week, an individual I fired from my campaign was indicted in federal court for illegally intercepting my political and personal emails for almost a year that were then released to the media by leftwing political groups last year. The man is also charged with lying to the FBI about the scheme.
A few days later, another man whose computers were seized by the FBI in the email theft investigation was arrested for possession of child pornography. The child pornography was found when the FBI served a search warrant in the email theft investigation, according to news reports. This man was the PAC Manager for the now Chairman of the Democratic Party of New Mexico, Sam Bregman. Bregman was very active in trying to use the emails to attack me.
Some of the stolen emails included things such as bank account information, receipts for clothing, and political strategy memos. Those personal emails were released to be publicized by New Mexico Attorney General and Democratic candidate for Governor Gary King. Afterward, King claimed he had no idea there was an ongoing FBI investigation despite the fact it had been very publicly reported in the media.
In politics, we should expect tough and vigorous debates on the issues. But its disgusting to see operatives committing crimes and invading the privacy of their political opponents just to score cheap political points. And it's almost unbelievable that the states chief law enforcement officer interfered with an ongoing federal investigation by releasing emails he had to have known were stolen -- and provided to him directly by a union-funded PAC. That shouldn't happen on either side of the aisle.
Now, the leftwing criminal defense lawyer representing the indicted is promising a smear campaign. I stood up to criminals for 25 years as a prosecutor, I wasnt intimidated then and I won't be intimidated now.

I’m a little skeptical of her.
Last night she was on Greta pushing for a national DNA Database.
Basically the government wants to come take our DNA and store it.. “just in case”
The Democrat War on Women continues.
Another instance of “Hi, I’m running for Governor, and I’m too stupid to know what’s going on in my campaign, but I’d like to expand my kingdom to include the entire state.”
I presume you're talking about the presumptive Democratic candidate for Governor, Gary King.
Martinez knew that someone had taken her emails when they showed up with Democratic officials/operatives. She alerted the US Attorney and the FBI who investigated beginning last year and this past week charged a former person in her campaign. However, what the Martinez campaign was derelict in doing, as every employer knows or should know, when a person in your organization leaves you change user names and passwords to accounts and emails.
I don't know the context of her support, but I understand it's for anyone who is arrested for a felony and subject to being fingerprinted. The requirement for DNA testing, known as "Katie's Law" arose from the brutal rape and murder of Katie Sepich, a 22-year-old NMSU student in Las Cruces while Susana was prosecutor. Not until NM passed the law was the killer identified.
In its ruling yesterday, the court said the DNA cheek swab does not represent an unreasonable intrusion of a persons privacy that would violate the Fourth amendment (anymore than a photograph or fingerprint of a person arrested for a serious crime would). Certainly I have concerns of a national DNA data base, but unlike a national ID card based on social security numbers or a gun registry, DNA requires specialized testing and is not easily available to someone just looking someone else up for political purposes.
