She should not have done that…
Governor of New Mexico, Michelle Lujan Grisham, recently paid a former aide $62,500 to settle an allegation he made towards her.
A report from the Albuquerque Journal states:
In a written statement Monday, campaign spokesman Jared Leopold said the payments are part of a settlement resolving “numerous dubious and disputed potential claims made by [James Hallinan] arising from his employment in 2018 with the campaign organization and his subsequent search for employment.”
Hallinan, who now runs his own communications company, accused Lujan Grisham in late 2019 — about a year after he left the campaign — of pouring a bottle of water on his crotch and then grabbing his crotch through his clothes as she laughed, an incident he said took place in front of other campaign staffers.
Grisham had previously denied the claims, however, paying out a settlement when she stated she did nothing wrong is very fishy.
A spokesman stated, “After years of vehement denial, Governor Lujan Grisham’s now revealed sexual harassment settlement certainly raises questions of why she tried to discredit her alleged victim.”
