New State Representative Attacks this publication. Is she going to be a Legislator, Lobbyist, Blogger, or all three?
Conflict of Interest Alert: Newly appointed State Representative Stephanie Maez, D-Albuquerque is also a blogger who simultaneously runs a lobbying organization, the Center for Civic Policy. The Center for Civic Policy has made numerous lobbying appearances before the legislature this year.
Maez also tweets quite a bit through “Clearly NM”.
Apparently, the growth and readership of New Mexico Political Journal has somehow bothered Representative Maez. Wednesday afternoon she apparently tweeted an attack on New Mexico Political Journal while the House was in session.
Representative Maez may have to decide whether she’s going to be a legislator, a blogger, a lobbyist, or a ProgressNowNM gossip columnist. Right now she appears to be trying to do all of those things simultaneously.
What an awesome catch!!
So what will Ms. Maez decide to do? Will she choose to continue advocacy and blogging and resign from the House? Or will she choose to “serve” the people of New Mexico in the House of Representatives?!

This legislative session it is important to have a conservative political voice to counteract the far-Left radicals like the Santa Fe Reporter, ProgressNow New Mexico and the newly created NM Political Report. Any help you can give would be appreciated!
