William Dixon must be spinning in his grave!

Turn in one's grave, wikilink.

William Dixon, in whose name the New Mexico Foundation for Open Government presents Dixon Awards to heroes of open government, was a co-founder of FOG; he and  Journal Managing Editor Kent Walz put it together together.

A Dixon Award has been given to both Marty Esquivel and Winston Brooks.  That would be unsettling enough for the founder, as both of them are up to their eyeballs in a cover up of corruption and incompetence in the leadership of the APS.

His real consternation flows from Walz part in the cover up.
Walz and Esquivel actually managed to bamboozle the FOG
into giving Brooks a Dixon Award while all the while,
all three were busy covering up an ethics and accountability scandal in the leadership of the APS.

Walz could not be acting in more diametric opposition to the FOG's mission if he tried, and trying he is.
