SANTA FE (KRQE) – Gov. Susana Martinez’s former campaign manger accused of intercepting her emails and lying to the feds about it says info on the controversial Downs deal is key to his defense.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports Jamie Estrada’s attorney says emails surround that contract could reveal possible credibility issues with Martinez and her administration, but prosecutors say the Downs case is not related to Estrada’s case.
Estrada served as Martinez’s campaign manager before she fired him. He’s scheduled to go on trial July 15.
