    I want to apologize for the conduct of my staff on the night of our holiday party, there apparently was a party in a hotel room earlier in the night that was disruptive. None of that should have happened, and I was not aware of the extent of the ruckus and the behavior until just recently. The Republican governor told the paper she might discipline the staffers involved in the incident, but she didn’t provide any details about what disciplinary measures she would take. Chris Sanchez, spokesman for Martinez told the Albuquerque Journal that Martinez had about one cocktail, despite her saying she and her companions, including a disabled sister, were only having pizza and drinking cokes. Sanchez said she was not intoxicated. The audio tapes between Martinez and police were released Friday. Martinez’s critics blasted her alleged actions at the holiday party.

  4. Thomas Jefferson:

    I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical. Unsuccessful rebellions, indeed, generally establish the encroachments on the rights of the people, which produced them. An observation of this truth should render honest republican governors so mild in their punishment of rebellions as not to discourage them too much. It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government.

  5. Katrina Pierson:
