Grants, NM - This afternoon, the chief law enforcement official for Cibola, Sandoval and Valencia Counties, and the chief law enforcement official for Los Alamos, Rio Arriba and Sante Fe Counties called for an investigation by the U.S. House Committee on Ethics into Steve Pearce’s assets and holdings after the Associated Press busted him for trying to hide the fact that his multi-million profits are actually coming from the oil and gas industry, not from renting out tables and chairs for parties. Thirteenth Judicial District Attorney Lemuel Martinez and First Judicial District Attorney Marco Serna are joining the chief law enforcement official of Doña Ana County, Third Judicial District Attorney Mark D’Antonio, in calling for the investigation.

“Steve Pearce has been exposed by the media for lying about Michelle Lujan Grisham in his debunked, false TV ads, but what is even more concerning to us as chief law enforcement officials is that the media has exposed him for hiding the true source of his millions in profits from New Mexico voters,” said District Attorney Lemuel Martinez and District Attorney Marco Serna. “We are joining District Attorney D’Antonio in calling for an investigation by the U.S. House Committee on Ethics into Steve Pearce for lying and hiding his true income source. This investigation must also determine whether Pearce used his office to make millions from his oil and gas equipment businesses."
