Report: Terry Schleder is no longer executive director for the New Mexico Foundation for Open Government (NMFOG) and Erin Muffoletto is interim executive director.

Yesterday I shared with readers (you can read the blogpost here) the discovery that the Democratic Party of New Mexico (DPNM) had promoted the opening of executive director for New Mexico Foundation for Open Government and encouraged interested persons to apply, yet DPNM immediately deleted their blogpost. This is another issue that bears investigation. What is Shreddin’ Sam Bregman’s explanation?
The New Mexico Foundation for Open Government is looking for an executive director to lead our statewide effort to foster a culture of transparency and accountability for New Mexicans. Our ideal candidate will possess strong organizational and writing skills with a keen ability to focus on detail. In addition, the preferred candidate will have knowledge regarding state-level records and meeting laws. Comfort with public speaking, some fundraising experience, and an ability to work across partisan divides desired. To apply, send a resume, brief writing sample and a cover letter that tells us about your experience and your vision for NMFOG, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications will be accepted until 5:00 PM Oct 18, 2013. Salary: $45,000 – $50,000, with health insurance stipend.

What are the circumstances behind Mr. Schleder’s departure from the New Mexico Foundation for Open Government? We have yet to see. Earlier this year I brought to light his close ties to the Left and support of Democrats while he had unlimited criticism for Republicans. Could it be that his dedication to progressive causes and the Left played a role? The fact that the Democratic Party of New Mexico released the information on the search for an executive director before the media and deleted the post, is in itself suspicious and leads us to believe there may be some deep corruption.
