RGF president Paul Gessing sat down with KOAT Channel 7 to discuss a left-wing candidate running for Albuquerque City Council named Maureen Skowran who has received $50,000 in contributions from California-based environmental groups. You can read the campaign finance reports here and here.
There are many interesting aspects to the story, not the least of which is what two California-based environmental groups want out of Albuquerque’s City Council. Also noteworthy is that New Mexico’s “Working Families Party” served as a conduit for this $50,000 donation.
As we recently pointed out, the “Working Families Party” just gave a cool $80,000 to support “Democracy Dollars” which is billed as an effort to get “big money out of politics,” (but only after we use big money from out-of-state to change the system and elect more leftist candidates.)
Who funds the “Working Families Party?” According to Wikipedia it is supported by a “coalition of labor unions, community organizations, members of the now-inactive national New Party, and a variety of advocacy groups such as Citizen Action of New York and the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (the now-discredited and dissolved ACORN which is now OLÉ).
