Everyone is corrupt.  But you are so right - we never hear about NM doing the stupid stuff we do here!!

Close enough?  

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Nearly two weeks after an arrest warrant was issued for a New Mexico man running for Congress, police found him at an Albuquerque apartment complex.

What he’s been doing since the warrant was issued out of Santa Fe, is a mystery.

Democrat David Alcon is running for the state’s open District 2 Congressional Seat. Now, he’s behind bars for allegedly stalking a woman in Santa Fe.

A woman attending a Halloween party on October 28 at a hotel in Santa Fe said she started receiving persistent texts from Alcon — some suggesting that he was watching her, other messages professing his love for her, and one picture of his genitals.

Later that night, the woman said Alcon texted her again, that he was outside her apartment.

A warrant for Alcon’s arrest was issued on October 30. Now, rather than turning himself into Santa Fe police, Alcon was arrested Friday in Albuquerque.

Albuquerque Police were called to the Villa De San Felipe Apartments for a welfare check around 3:30 p.m. on Friday. APD did not elaborate on what happened when they got to the scene, just that Alcon was arrested. He’s also not facing any new charges out of Albuquerque, according to jail records.

At this time it’s unclear why Alcon was there. All of his publicly listed addresses are for Milan, New Mexico.

Alcon is now sitting in MDC on a no-bond hold so he can be extradited to Santa Fe. KRQE News 13 reached out to Alcon’s campaign for comment, but have not heard back.

Alcon was previously convicted of stalking a woman in 2007.

No doubt they have crime and their own headlines - I had two cousins and their families in Albuquerque for decades until they died a few years ago and would get to hear about stuff.  But they don't get the national headlines about passing dozens of laws they know are unconstitutional.  Don't get the headlines for being last in the nation for support of education.  And they certainly don't have roads and infrastructure as bad as OK.

They do host Arizona criminals, though - unintentionally.  Since Republican Jan Brewer, Gov of AZ was so focused on building a wall to keep southerners out, and pushing money to her cronies in the private prison sector, she didn't pay enough attention to the killers in her private - for profit - prison system.  3 of the worst escaped about 2010.  Went to Quay Cty, NM, where they kidnapped and killed a couple - Gary and Linda Haas - of Tecumseh, OK.  Drove along with their stolen RV trailer until they noticed blood dripping out, then went to the boonies and torched it.   Linda was the sister of a guy I used to work with.

When MC and I first moved here last spring, we continued our habit of watching the 10pm news.  After a few weeks of the ABQ news leading with all sorts of crime, we turned it off.  Too depressing.  Second reason being, since we are right at the base of a mountain range, the weather can be a bit difficult to predict.  A weather rock seems to be the most accurate.

The state supreme court threw out an Oklahoma Department of Public Safety drafted "suggested" law that would have criminalized a person's right to refuse a breath test, as well as eliminating driver's rights to appeal the seizure and destruction of drivers licenses.


Yes DUI is bad but it shouldn't be used as an excuse to use the constitution as toilet paper.
