New Mexico Democrat Michelle Lujan Grisham Haunted By High-Risk Health Insurance Scandal

Lujan Grisham’s numerous issues of apparent corruption make it clear that New Mexicans can’t trust her.

Per the RGA:

In the New Mexico governor’s race, Democrat gubernatorial nominee Michelle Lujan Grisham continues to be haunted by revelations that she allegedly used her political insider connections to rip off sick patients.

The Albuquerque Journalreports that Lujan Grisham has found it “hard to shake” questions about the scandal.

First, Lujan Grisham was caught failing to properly report her income from her company that overcharged these seriously-ill patients. Now, a recent report has revealed that Lujan Grisham’s firm faced no other competition for the contract, raising even more corruption questions.

Lujan Grisham’s numerous issues of apparent corruption make it clear that New Mexicans can’t trust her.

Albuquerque Journalreports:


As summer has turned into fall, Michelle Lujan Grisham has been hounded by opponents in New Mexico’s governor’s race over her past ties to a consulting firm with a long-standing contract to run the state’s high-risk insurance pool.

Meanwhile, a Journal review of Delta’s past contracts to act as the high-risk pool’s executive director shows the contracts were awarded after the pool publicly solicited bids, as required by the state’s procurement code.

However, no other companies ultimately submitted bids for the job, despite what one board member describes as attempts to stir up possible interest from other firms.

Delta Consulting was co-founded in 2008 by Lujan Grisham and another former state Cabinet secretary, Rep. Deborah Armstrong, D-Albuquerque, who is still the firm’s president. At the time, Lujan Grisham had recently resigned as state Health Department secretary. She was then elected to Congress in 2012, after a two-year stint as a Bernalillo County commissioner.
