Federal Election Commission Demands Answers from Janice Arnold-Jones
ALBUQUERQUE — Michelle Lujan Grisham’s opponent in New Mexico’s 1st Congressional District has been admonished by the Federal Election Commission for failing to be transparent with voters about how she is spending her campaign cash.
Janice Arnold-Jones, the Republican candidate, has championed herself as “Lady Sunshine” for her support of transparency in the state Legislature. But as a congressional candidate, Arnold-Jones is not being forthright with voters.
The FEC sent a letter to Janice Arnold-Jones’ campaign on Oct. 18, demanding answers to questions about her spending.
“As a former member of the Voters & Elections Committee and someone who prides herself on the letter of the law, you would think Janice Arnold-Jones would be more honest and forthright with voters,” said Gilbert Gallegos, spokesman for the Lujan Grisham campaign. “Lady Sunshine has some explaining to do.”
Michelle Lujan Grisham filed her latest campaign-finance report on Wednesday with the FEC, reporting $123,273 in additional contributions since her last report on Sept. 30. Lujan Grisham has $237,270 cash on hand as she heads into the final days of the campaign.
