Las Cruces: The last couple weeks state auditor candidate Bill McCamley has been embroiled in an embarrassing scandal regarding his recent campaign finance reports and financial disclosures.
After we reported the story on Twitter, the New Mexico Political Journal went into greater detail in a series of articles, and the stories about McCamley’s ethical failures grew wings from there. It was uncovered that McCamley actually rents out his house while staying in a portion of his home (an apartment) and fails to report the income derived from the rental property, actually lying to taxpayers and his constituents in the process.
In addition to reporting that he has zero income, McCamley gave his own campaign two loans equaling $45,000.
Additionally, McCamley donated $250 to congressional candidate Xochitl Torres Small this January, claiming he was a “self employed consultant.”
Why aren’t you reporting the income that allows you to give $250 donations, Bill McCamley?
