Vigil-Giron: audit is "old news"

She didn't send her response for this article in time to make it in print, but former Secretary of State Rebecca Vigil-Giron says the audit released Tuesday by Hector Balderas is nothing new. Here's the e-mail response she sent last night.

"Can you believe that they waited more than 7 months to release this report. What timing! What was his motivation? I don't know!! Every bit of this report is Old News. I responded to everyone of the exceptions back in early 2007 to DFA and also to the EAC."

Vigil-Giron in the past has said she did nothing wrong with Help America Vote Act funds sent to the state.


  1. Me thinks the lady doth protest too much

  2. OK, I'll ask. What timing? I'm not sure I sense a political advantage now, to anyone, over releasing the audit now rather than some other time.

  3. Other than it could give a boost to ethics reform.
