More on Joanie Griffin's Ethical Problems (and The Albuquerque Journal's?)
Required reading if you live in Albuquerque's City Council District 6 (or even if you don't): Countdown to Oct. 2: The Journal and Joanie, another revealing political post by Coco over at Duke City Fix. Be sure to follow the links to other posts Coco provides in order to connect the dots fully. It's a fairly complicated web. It often is when Mayor Chavez, the city's ethics board, Greg Payne, Don Harris, Paulette de'Pascal, Joanie Griffin and the Albuquerque Journal, among others, are involved.
Coco has done an excellent job of bringing some attention to a, well, let's just say less than stellar candidate in a district with a definite progressive lean. Anytime a person switches party affiliation, then declares their candidacy that close to an election my "phony" detector goes wild. Especially true for a Republic to Democratic conversion at a time when there is such a wide difference in party values.
