Did governor's drivers license ad violate state law? (Listen again))
(2011-02-23)
As heard on At Noon Feb. 23
(KSFR) -
Questions are being raised about the source of funds used to pay for a political ad from the governor's office.

Gov. Susana Martinez' office has launched a campaign to put public pressure on state lawmakers to vote "up or down" on the question of drivers licenses for foreign nationals.

The radio ad boasts that it was not paid for by tax dollars but instead by the governor's gubernatorial campaign committee.

Steve Allen, executive director of Common Cause New Mexico, and Marcela Diaz of the immigrants advocacy group Somos un Pueblo Unido both raise the question about whether unspent funds from the governor's election campaign can be used to pay for the ad.

KSFR News has filed an inquiry about the question with the state Attorney General's office.
