Looks Like New Mexico Gov. Lujan Grisham Broke Her Lockdown Rules to Buy Jewelry

Looks Like New Mexico Gov. Lujan Grisham Broke Her Lockdown Rules to Buy Jewelry

We all know that some animals are more equal than other animals.

KRQE News 13 in New Mexico learned that Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham broke her lockdown rules in order to buy jewelry.

Lujan Grisham claims she didn’t do anything wrong. She explained the caveats to the lockdown only after she got caught. These caveats surprised other small business owners, who thought absolutely no one was allowed in their stores for any reason.

On April 3, Lujan Grisham told New Mexicans to stay home and leave only for essential items. She also shut down non-essential businesses.

Days later (emphasis mine):

However, just days after the April 3rd news conference and a week before Easter, KRQE News 13 has learned that Gov. Lujan Grisham called an employee at Lilly Barrack on Paseo to buy expensive jewelry. The jewelry was bought over the phone, but the employee went to the store, got the jewelry and placed it outside the door of the store where someone who knew the governor picked it up. This is according to the person who runs Lilly Barrack stores. She says she didn’t know about it until after it happened. She also said no one was allowed in the stores at that time due to the public health order.

That last sentence is key. The person who runs the store apparently interpreted the public health order the way most did: no one is allowed in the stores at all. Remember this.

Lujan Grisham did not deny this happened:

The governor refused an on-camera interview but has a different version of the story. In an email from a governor spokesman, he says that “Lujan Grisham did call an employee, saying they had a longstanding personal relationship. The employee came here [Lilly Barrack], got the jewelry and took it home, left it outside their home and then someone came and picked it up.”

The governor’s office first said it was a campaign staffer, then later told KRQE it was the governor’s friend, but wouldn’t release a name. They also said the transaction was entirely contact-less, remote and permissible.

Here’s the last part of the statement that goes with the highlighted part above (emphasis mine):

The spokesman also pointed to the governor’s order at the time stating “none of the state’s public health orders have restricted the conduct of business operations in which an employee only interacts with clients or customers remotely.” However, that same order also states it requires the closure of physical retails spaces and doesn’t mention anything about home delivery.

In a time of non-essential closures where curbside was not allowed, KRQE asked if home delivery was okay. The governor’s spokesman said it was not a home delivery and businesses were encouraged to find creative ways to conduct business safely. He also added the store was not opened for the governor and stated that “turning the key inside a door to ‘open’ a store wouldn’t violate the order…” He also said non-essential businesses all across the state let employees in to do inventory or clean.

That is news to other non-essential businesses! Mark Diamond Jewelers did not read the orders that way. Gertrude Zachary, another jewelry store, said it did not allow anyone in the store “and they wouldn’t even risk it because of a fear of fines.”

Ooh Ahh Jewelry’s manager told KRQE the store only “did online sales with one person in the shop who shipped orders out.” The store did not do any “home or curbside deliveries because it wasn’t part of the April public health orders.”

New Mexico did not allow curbside pickup until May 1.

Ah, yes. Another “for me, but not for thee moment.” We all know that some animals are more equal than other animals.

My anger toward these tyrants keeps growing. Am I the only one? Is the rest of America just gonna keep rolling over?

    “America” is not rolling over, witness the election of PDJT.

    The problem is the GOP: they are not an opposition party, but merely a franchise of the swamp. And that’s being kind.

    Sure, there is Devin Nunes, Cotton and Ted Cruz and the other handful of patriots. But that’s about it.

    The Tea Party needs to resurrected and the GOP needs to go the way of the Whig Party, with all the entrenched ino rats, and parasites (advisors and fake conservatives) feeding off it becoming unemployed.

    You are most certainly not alone, Colonel!

    The brazen, unabashed, imperial arrogance of these vile, totalitarian Dhimmi-crat apparatchiks is galling. It must be addressed at the ballot box.

      Sorry, I know there are good people who are, especially here. LI is one of my all-time favorite sites.

      I just wonder about so many of our fellow citizens across this massive country.

      Well, the democrats are addressing the issue. Now they want mail in fraud…errrr, voting.
      Glad I’m old, the young kids are so indoctrinated it’s ridiculous. Bow down before the cheaters running for office.
      The old saying – “you can vote socialism in, but you have to shoot your way out” will be tested. Or not, the young kids no longer think God is real, just the government. May their chains droop heavily on their shoulders as a reminder of what they had.

The arrogance of these people is commensurate with their corruption.

There really is a ‘swamp’ class believing the OWN our country. OWN.

She needs to have ALL her jewelry shoved up her ass in a public square. Literally.

If AG Barr-Boehner was so feckless, the criminality of these people would be stopped.

Their corruption is so arrogant because they only face the GOP as opposition. AG Barr-Boehner seems to be cut from the GOP mould (“mold”, really).

    The Feckless R’s fecklessness is helping them do accidentally what they are not disciplined enough to do on purpose.

    Transforming a large, stable system, you only pick fights you’re gonna win. It’s not a fair game, rather two sets of rules. Barr ever does anything as remotely partisan as Holder’s slowest day, he’s done, done, done.

    I don’t much expect the top of the conspiracy to actually get locked up. However, when “siccing the FBI on them” is a trope everyone knows, like perhaps “blue dress”, the damage is done.

    If the choice is “justice” or “fix it”, I’ll take the fix.

      A mere “fix” of the corruption will ensure there is a line around the block for people waiting to get into office to continue it.

      If the people at the top – the TOP – are not prosecuted, the nation will disintegrate into two, with a shooting war to eventually follow.

      This kind of reminds me of the situation in Algiers, when the French governed it: there was an organized revolt by the native Algierian that was put down by the French. Two years later, a spontaneous revolt broke out and did the French in. In this scenario, we traditional Americans are the Algerians.

      Meantime, john kerry continues to violate the Logan Act, hillary clinton continues to slither free, pelosi’s son has profited handsomely from the Ukraine, as has john kerry’s familiy, as has biden’s son. Bill clinton is a complete pedo, epstein was assassinated, obama committed high crimes as well as treason, adam schiff committed crimes, democrat governors are violating the Constitution…. and AG Barr-Boehner is blabbing on, doing nothing about any of it.

      Paul Pelosi:

      john kerry’s daughter:

      Barr-Boehner, what a f–king joke you are.

“Subjects, Hear this well. Thou shall doest as I sayeth, not as I doeth.”

“Yous peons, capiche?”

New Mexico is a bit different, in a political sense, than other western States. That would be an attempt at understating the case.

This state elected a libertarian governor in Gary Johnson.
2018, was a midterm in which r had to defend over 30 seats vacated by retiring incumbents. Thus, were unable to effectively target what seats to defend with resource allocation.

2020 is a presidential and few r incumbents retired. Most who did have already stepped aside allowing for replacement via special election.

IMO NM 2nd congressional district would have been retained by the incumbent had 2018 been a more normal midterm. I anticipate that nationwide we will see more enthusiasm and turnout on the r side v 2018. Hopefully that turnout can defeat the d who have been waiting for 3+ years to vote against PDJT.

It’s not like laws are there to be obeyed; they’re there to be enforced or not at someone’s discretion.

For that, vague laws are better.

These will always be with us. It’s like whack-a-mole, no ending.

Besides, there’s even a song: “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.”

New Mexico’s Tiny Tyrant has always considered the citizens of this state to be “the little people”. She does interviews weekly scolding us for not doing better. We have 7252 total cases and 329 deaths for the entire state, about half in the northwest corner near the Navajo nation. While salons are closed, she’s bringing in her personal hair stylist to make sure her cuts and color are right on schedule. Her budget for the year had major spending increases and now that oil and gas has collapsed and she’d destroyed thousands of small businesses, she wants to raid the permanent fund to cover her incompetence. I can’t believe the crazy b*tch is actually being considered for the 2020 ticket with Biden.

No doubt it was essential jewelry.

No Democrat considers him/her/it self to be subject to the law or the Constitution. COVID-19 gave them a chance to flaunt it and they could not resist.

For the sake of buying pling, pling, pling, she was anti-Planned Pathogen (PP) (e.g. aborted and reduced viability virus) with a choice that was self-described as normalizing redistributive change (i.e. transmission/sharing). Bigot.
