[From the political watchdog group ProgressNow]:
ProgressNow New Mexico has uncovered documents showing that former-congresswoman and current US Senate candidate Heather Wilson has been named in a "pay-to-play" investigation being conducted by the New Mexico Attorney General's Office.
You might remember way back in 2008 when news reports questioned the use of federal grants earmarked by Wilson to the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department that ended up at a company owned by Wilson campaign donors.
Now, ProgressNow New Mexico has learned that New Mexico's Attorney General has been conducting an investigation and both Heather Wilson and then-sheriff Darren White were called in for questioning.
Our investigation reveals that donors connected to that Albuquerque company and two other associated companies gave Wilson more than $20,000 in campaign contributions and received more than $6 million in federal and contacts and grants, like the one earmarked to BCSO.
We've posted copies of the Attorney General's letters to Wilson and White on our new micro-site WilsonWatch.org
