New Mexico Dem Gov Nominee Michelle Lujan Grisham Spotted Partying During Hurricane Relief Trip In Puerto Rico

New Mexico Democrat gubernatorial nominee Michelle Lujan Grisham continues to prove that her campaign is an operation of hypocrisy.

Per the RGA:

New Mexico Democrat gubernatorial nominee Michelle Lujan Grisham continues to prove that her campaign is an operation of hypocrisy.

Since becoming the Democrat nominee, Lujan Grisham’s campaign has been haunted by reports that she made a fortune ripping off sick patients when she claimed to be helping them.

Now, Lujan Grisham is once again in hot water over her blatant hypocrisy. During a recent taxpayer-funded trip to Puerto Rico, where her staff claimed she was helping “hurricane victims,” Lujan Grisham was photographed drinking and dancing at a luxurious resort.

Her campaign said she was meeting with “disaster recovery officials” to “find solutions for Hurricane victims” – but she seemed more interested in drinking champagne and dancing the night away.

Lujan Grisham fits the bill for hypocrisy. New Mexico voters can’t trust her.


Washington Free Beacon reports:

“Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D., N.M.) was spotted dancing and drinking during a two-day trip to Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands to assess the infrastructure and recovery process in response to Hurricane Maria.

Lujan Grisham, who is running for governor in New Mexico, joined House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif) and about a dozen other Democrats to ensure the islands ‘have the money needed to not just recover,’ but to ‘rebuild better than before,’ according to the St. John Source.

Lujan Grisham drew attention to the need for further action on the islands, but what she didn’t mention was her social activities of dancing and drinking at the Chandelier Bar, a ritzy hotel bar within the El San Juan Hotel. The hotel, where most of the delegation stayed, is described on the website as being ‘synonymous with Puerto Rican luxury hospitality.’

It is unclear exactly what Lujan Grisham and her colleagues paid to stay at the hotel, but during the weekend, room prices range from $300 to just under a $1,000 per night, according to the website. The hotel, which is part of the Curio Collection by Hilton, includes many luxury amenities like tennis courts, multiple pools, and a spa.

In the picturesobtained from a tracker, Lujan Grisham is seen drinking with Rep. Nydia Velazquez (D., N.Y.) on at least one occasion at the Chandelier Bar. She is also seen dancing with an unidentified man at the hotel.

In addition to the pictures showing the group at the Chandelier Bar, the tracker said the Democratic delegation went to Entrevinos, a wine bar that doubles as a restaurant, near the hotel for dinner. It is unclear whether each member of Congress paid for their own meals and drinks or if they were expensed on the taxpayers’ dime.”
