Greens Silent on Judge Fran Gallegos

The Green Party is remarkably silent about one of it's few elected officials in New Mexico, Santa Fe Municipal Judge Fran Gallegos.

Gallegos was suspended as a judge today by the State Supreme Court. Gallegos allegedly altered court records and sentences (link) of her defendants.

Gallegos was the pride of New Mexico greens as one its only elected officials in the state. Now the Green Party, which offered itself as a solution to the historically troubled elected officials offered by democrats, has a troubled elected official of its own and they have done little to distance themselves from Gallegos.

Check out the New Mexico Green Party's Call to action (link) and see if this vision of the Green Party matches Gallegos' actions.
