I hate to say I told you so but ...

Heath Haussamen points to a legitimate question, link,
asked by the Santa Fe New Mexican, link, to which

Gov Elect Susana Martinez responded other than candidly, forthrightly and honestly.

This is not the first time legitimate
questions have enjoyed less than
candid, forthright and honest responses from Martinez.

Within politics and public service,
the limit on transparency is the law;
not in hiding behind it;
not in technicalities, loop holes and "legal" weaselry.

Public access to the truth about the spending of their power and resources, is limited only by the law and honest accountability to a higher standard than the law; a standard that includes truth telling according to ethical and "legal" standards.

According to the APS Student Standards of Conduct,
people of character, Governors of character,
are willing to do more than the law requires and
less than the law allows when it comes to telling the truth
or hiding it.

You can't hide from the truth because the "law" allows it;
not if you are honestly accountable to any standard of
conduct at all, that is higher than the law.

Just because it's legal, doesn't make it right.

Btw; anyone know how Martinez feels about
Character Counts!, link, as the standard of conduct for
about 10% of her constituents or more.

I'd ask, if I thought I'd get an answer.
I won't, cuz I don't.

Lord! God! I sincerely pray you're wrong. What do we do? Where do we go? Will no one listen?
