Former Sec of State & 3 Top Dems Indicted on 50 Counts of Fraud, Embezzlement & Money Laundering in New Mexico

The former Secretary of State and several top Democrats were indicted today in New Mexico.
The ABQ News reported, via Free Republic:

Former Secretary of State Rebecca Vigil-Giron, Democratic Party consultant Armando Gutierrez and lobbyists Elizabeth and Joseph Carl Kupfer were indicted Wednesday on 50 counts each of conspiracy, fraud, embezzlement, money laundering over $100,000 and other charges for alleged acts occurring from 2004 through 2006.

The four, who are named in separate indictments filed Wednesday afternoon in Bernalillo County District court, also are charged with making or permitting false public vouchers, making or taking kickbacks and tampering with evidence. The evidence-tampering charge stems from a “memorandum” back-dated to Sept. 2, 2004, “fabricated” with the intent of avoiding prosecution, the indictments say.
