I’m not an attorney, but the New Mexico statutes I cited yesterday make it pretty clear what the Attorney General’s role is supposed to be when it comes to impeachment. Yet, today’s front page Journal article (subscription) ends with the following paragraph:
While Attorney General Patricia Madrid has said her office is exploring other options for removing Vigil, Sam Thompson, Madrid’s spokeswoman, said Friday that “we’ve been waiting to see what the Legislature will do.”
Someone please send Sam Thompson a link to my Friday post, so that he doesn’t continue to embarrass Attorney General Patricia Madrid in the press. Then again, maybe she is worried that some mainstream reporter is going to uncover the fact that the Legislature appropriated funds for an investigation of the Treasurer’s Office three times in the last six years with, apparently, no results, no report and no action.
