New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas on Friday filed a 64 count complaint against Secretary of State Dianna Duran accusing her of embezzling and laundering money. The complaint alleges that Duran, who was reelected to her post in the last election 2014, used government funds to feed her gambling habits. Secretary Duran has not yet responded to the allegations. We asked Maggie Toulouse Oliver, who unsuccessfully ran for the post, to describe the functioning of the office and its vital responsibilities to New Mexico.
