During summer recess in Congress our elected officials have been coming home and getting a sense of issues on the ground. We caught up with Third District Congressman Ben Ray Lujan and in the first of a two-part interview, asked him about some of the current issues he’s working on for New Mexicans.

As the allegations against Secretary Duran are being discussed nationwide, here in New Mexico we’re also discussing our lack of an ethics commission. We are one of only eight states which does not have such a commission, despite efforts on the part of some state representatives to create one. Paul Biderman served five years as Director of the Institute of Public Law and research faculty at UNM’s school of Law, and conducts ethics trainings for public officials across the state, including for Commissioners of the PRC. He’s joins us live today to discuss ethics in New Mexico.

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.
