SIX SERIOUS CHARGES INCLUDING EMBEZZLEMENT AND FRAUD; AND HAS 
  JUST RESIGNED AS NEW MEXICO'S
SECRETARY OF STATE
 

+++ A FITTING THEME FOR THE SCANDAL PLAGUED
HAWAII GOP WHICH HAS
MISUSED ITS FUNDS AND
FRAUDULENTLY SOLD TICKETS TO THIS VERY EVENT
+++ 
 
 
Warning to All Hawaii Republicans:
 
Just days before the Hawaii GOP's fraud-based fundraiser featuring New Mexico governor Susana Martinez as keynote speaker, Martinez' running mate resigned from office and pled guilty to multiple counts of corruption including embezzlement .  Though the scandal has NOT been mentioned by Hawaii GOP leaders during their sales pitch for tickets, Martinez' secretary of state Dianna Duran had been recently charged by that state's attorney general with 65 violations in a criminal complaint including fraud, embezzlement, money laundering, campaign law violations, tampering with public records, conspiracy, and violating the Governmental Conduct Act.

Martinez associate Duran entered a into a plea deal pleading guilty to six of the 65 charges against her.  Now, with Martinez' ally and running mate using campaign funds for personal use, it is believed that these were funds which Martinez herself helped to raise during last year's election campaign during their joint campaign fundraising appearances .  The alleged Martinez money was used to pay off gambling and other personal debts.   This scandal has set back the Republican Party in New Mexico through a severely tarnished reputation which will take years or decades to repair .

Like the charges against the Hawaii Republican Party's leadership for misusing mortgage funds for non-mortgage expenses and covering up the financial misdeeds with less-than-transparent accounting , the complaint against Martinez' running mate and political ally alleges that Duran used campaign funds for personal use and then hid those transactions by using an outside 'campaign treasurer' who had no idea what was going on.  While New Mexico legislators were laying the groundwork for impeachment of Ms. Duran, HRP's beleaguered and vacancy-plagued state committee appears to have circled the wagons around Hellreich, Rohlfing and Saiki.

 

It is still unknown if Governor Martinez will be indicted or charged for related corruption, let alone if Martinez will still make it to Hawaii in the midst of this legal, political and financial scandal which has New Mexico abuzz with talk about whether Martinez will survive her term in office.  Indeed, Martinez has been dogged by her own scandals involving voter fraud, corruption, cronyism , and more.  For now, her close ally's ' midnight resignation ' and guilty pleas make one wonder why HRP would want to showcase the dark cloud of corruption rather than some positive Republican message?

Not only have Hawaii's Republican Party leaders lied to you and other party members about the shady mortgage slush fund , but they also lied to you about the keynote speaker having a future in national politics in order to sell tickets .  Let's be clear, Susana Martinez has ZERO future in national politics.  Her reputation for overseeing corruption is now only rivaled by Hillary Clinton and by the leadership of HRP.  No serious contender for the presidency will choose Martinez as a running mate ( as party leader Miriam Hellreich's brochure strongly suggests ) nor are they likely to be seen with her during their campaign for fear of being photographed with a potential felon and disgraced politician.

For now, the Hawaii GOP establishment is doubling down on its own financial corruption scandal by bringing a mainland politician with a dark ethical cloud hanging over her head, with its keynote speaker looking over her shoulder at the New Mexico attorney general following the guilty pleas of her political ally for embezzlement.
  The disgraced secretary of state Dianna Duran was endorsed by Martinez in 2014 and they campaigned and raised campaign funds together.

This series of financial scandals and legal problems call into question the fitness of HRP's current leadership.  As this scandal escalates, few inside or outside the organization have faith in Hawaii's Republican Party when its own officers are actively duping donors and ticket buyers about a fraudulent "mortgage fund" and a bait and switch "capital campaign."

LATE BREAKING NEWSLocal Democrat union attorney Mike Lilly reportedly lost a really HUGE case yesterday which could have devastating implications for the people of Hawaii.  Lilly, the former attorney general for Democrat Ben Cayetano and perennial Democrat appointee failed to persuade federal judge Seabright that OHA's funding of the upcoming racially discriminatory election violates the U.S. Constitution.  For whatever reason, the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii decided to utilize Lilly for this extremely important case which was far too important to lose.  Now, unfortunately, Hawaii is heading down a dark path of ethnic separatism which will require competent lawyering from committed conservatives to prevent.  Hopefully, GRIH stands a much better chance with Judicial Watch's attorneys once this case moves to the mainland on appeal.
Democrats have no place fighting for conservative causes.
