Governor's Critic Takes to the Airwaves

Michael Corwin
NM Independent - Liberal muckraker and private investigator Michael Corwin, of the Albuquerque-based Independent Source PAC, a liberal political action committee, recently launched a trio of radio spots not merely critical of Governor Susana Martinez and her administration but seemingly intent on exposing what he sees as widespread hypocrisies and conflicts of interest within the Department of Education. Working for free and having paid for the spots in order to generate more funds for his PAC, Corwin and his 30-second segments each focus on a very specific transgression: one on the hiring of chief of staff Keith Gardner’s wife at the Public Education Department; one on the apparent conflict of interest in choosing Paul Yarborough as State Personnel Board Chairman, despite his having served as vice president of an Albuquerque law firm that has state contracts totaling more than $500,000; and a third outlining the appointment of a onetime charter schools attorney as the state’s new charter-school czar.
