New Mexico Fixes Campaign Finance Website Glitch
During a spot check of campaign spending records, election officials realized a glitch in the database showed discrepancies between information searchable online and printable reports. Online, the purpose of some expenditures is omitted, for example.
The glitch was discovered after an ethics complaint was filed against Republican candidate for secretary of state Nora Espinoza, relying on the system’s printable reports.
