It had been a good several months for New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez. Last month, Marco Rubio named her as a possible VP pick. A week later, she was voted in as chair of the Republican Governors Association.
Now, Governor Martinez is making headlines for a… less ideal reason. Audio recordings have surfaced surrounding a run-in Martinez had with Santa Fe police during an office holiday party that inspired several apparent noise complaints.
The most notable moment features a conversation between Martinez and a police dispatcher, who she chastises and presses for information surrounding who specifically made the complaint, before strongly suggesting that the dispatcher “call” the officers following up on the complaint “off.”
