In regards to the Ethics TaskForce maybe they can work on this:

Major Conflict of Interest Needs to be Exposed

I was doing some research on how to become a voter registrar and I found out that Mary Herrera is still in her job as Bernalillo County Clerk and will be until 2008. I can’t believe the fact that she hasn’t completed her two terms and is moving on to bigger and better things. I know you are probably saying “why after all those sloppy elections she runs?” But I am talking about something else: she is in an office that is going to actual count the votes for the Secretary of State’s Office which is the office she is running for. How do you say: CONFLICT OF INTEREST! The SOS is the ethics administrator for goodness sakes—shouldn’t she lead by example? She needs to take a leave of absence. She already retired from Bernalillo County once with 33 years she put in. Can’t she get off the public dime? Or maybe she needs to stay and oversee the actions of Jeff Carbajal, the guy she hired to be Bernalillo Elections Bureau Chief. Jeff was Grant County Clerk before he was convicted of a felony for stealing fees from Grant County (http://www.nmlegalreform.org/2006-01-28.htm
