Tax payers fund cover up of ethics scandal

The New Mexico Public Education Department may be accumulating fines of up to $300 per day. They have failed to surrender public records by the deadline set by the law.

According to the law, the public agency responsible for the failure to surrender the records will pay the fine out of agency funds. Those funds are tax funds. Likely they are the very dollars that taxpayers contributed in order to provide the best education for their children.

As are the funds enriching the lawyers of Modrall. Public money is being spent to cover up the APS ethics scandal as well.

Taxpayers are paying for protection for public servants who will not hold themselves honestly accountable to a meaningful standard of conduct.

That’s wrong, right?
