So exciting to see Brian Cranston supporting Marty’s upcoming fundraiser, until I noticed the short list of “Friends” supporting the event. Who is “Bud Dziak”?

I googled the name and remembered where I had heard it before:

Dziak ran Marty’s illegal ABQPAC!

A piece in the Alibi (May 2005)revealed:

“ABQPAC was a political action committee designed to give money, one way or the other, to public officials. It was headed by C.M. "Bud" Dziak, an Albuquerque insurance broker, and pooled cash from people and firms who did business with the city.

Lobbyists and high-level city employees appointed by the mayor also kicked in. ABQPAC then gave the money to principally one public official: His Honor, Marty Chavez."

Jim Ludwick from the Albuquerque Journal first broke the news about the ABQPAC scandal in 2002. It stinks just as bad 10 years later.
