Voter Fraud Allegations in Mayoral Election Rock New Mexico City

Eric Shawn, Fox News, May 17, 2012

There is perhaps no other city in the country like Sunland Park, N.M.

The dusty border town minutes from El Paso, Texas, has been called “a city in chaos” by the state auditor, because a slew of public officials are facing felony charges that they ran City Hall like a personal piggy bank, tried to steal an election in order to remain in power and ruled the 14,000 residents through intimidation and fear.

The state is now moving to take over financial oversight of the city, as the council scrambles to try and name a new mayor.

The explosive case even involves Mexican prostitutes, strippers and an undercover video of a mayoral candidate getting a lap dance from a topless woman. The video allegedly was used to try to force him to drop out of the race.

Authorities say the extortion investigation has revealed widespread voter fraud and public corruption in the small city just south of the Rio Grande.

“It started with extortion charges, and from that it then led us to the voter fraud cases,” says Dona Ana Third Judicial District Attorney Amy Orlando, who is prosecuting the growing case.

So far, her office has charged 12 people, many public officials and city employees, including 28-year-old Mayor-elect Daniel Salinas, who faces dozens of charges in four separate cases. He was barred from taking office, and the city has been without a mayor since the election on March 6. {snip}


Salinas and others are charged with extortion over the tape. Prosecutors say the Salinas faction used city money to make the tape and pay for the topless dancer.

“They tried to get me out of the race,” Hernandez said. “I said, well, I’m not going to withdraw from the race. If you want to show it to the media, show it. I am not going to withdraw. That’s extortion.”

He says despite the salacious video, most of the people in Sunland Park support him because “they knew it was a set-up. They knew we’re human. I felt it was a very cowardly act.”

Prosecutors are also investigating about 170 votes that they believe are fraudulent, including the ballots of residents of nearby El Paso who illegally voted in Sunland Park.

    This friends is the future of America. The Third World conquering  America, one small town at a time.

    • any your taxes are paying for them.

  • 3rd world people create 3rdworld enviroments see detRIOT. Sounds like they sent hookers to rivals with vagina cams.

  • Mexicans behaving like Mexicans. This is what you get with the browning of America, via illegal imnmigration from third-world Mexico. This is what you suspend immigration laws in order to allow Whites to be displaced in our own country, by a lawless and corrupted populace.

  • Athling

    Your perspective is precise and totally accurate. The first apocalyptic shadow was unleashed with the announcement of white births being a minority for the first time in this nation’s history. The masses are asleep. More is to come…

      Most idiot whites just see it as neutral/inevitable/or somehow a good thing. When they say any of those things I ask them “Do you think being a minority is difficult? That the majority will inevitably enjoy supremacy unless the government intervenes? Then why the hell would YOU want to be a minority! (If they are debating  me on the topic, meaning, they believe its gonna happen anyway, they are most likely liberal antis so they buy my argument)…..

  • DEPORT ALL Mexicans!

    Problems SOLVED

    Corruption is the bread and butter of Mexican politics just like crime is the bread and butter of Mexican society. It is no surprise that sharp spikes in both are now observed in the U.S. given hispanic demographics in the U.S..

    Yes, you are right. That is how Rome fell. Large number of barbarians moving across there northern borders. Not as armies, but whole population on the move. Rome tried to buy their loyalty with citizenship and recruited them into the Roman army. Does that sound familiar? It didn’t work for the Romans and it certainly won’t work for us.

    • Yes, the barbarian moved into Rome from the northern borders,

      But at least those Barbarians were Germanics in large part.  This insured the future prosperity of Northern Italy after rebuilding.

      Remember: For Rome the Barbarians came from the North.

      In America 2012, the Barbarians come from the South.    

      America can to look Brazil for a model of it’s future state, flipped upside down relative to the equator. 

      Prosperous areas far from the Equator, murderous savagery in the “Dirty North”, and “vibrant” “enriching” Barrios in almost all major cities. 

      • mikejones91

        Isn’t Brazil the most “diverse” country on the planet? I don’t know that for a fact but I do remember hearing it’s the most violent country on earth.   I wonder why? Probably white people….

  • Why do we STILL put up with it?  Because

    Anti-racist is code word for Pro-Savage

    No, the savage is NOT noble.

    So true.  Japan, Switzerland and Iceland are successful societies not because they have massive natural resources but because of the people.  Populate Mexico with an all German population and you would get a tropical Germany.  In fact if you compare Southern Brazil, with its largely German/European population, with northern Brazil, with its heavily black population, it is like you are in two different countries.  And of course white-managed Africa was much more successful than black-managed Africa.  Even quite a few Africans admit that.

  • Even the United States’ enemies are amazed. Several times both governmental and civilian figures of those nations have warned America or have warned of a destabilized America. I have often wondered, as the Comintern discovers they are close to their goal of destroying the West and particularly America, have they not become concerned with what replaces America. If I am not mistaken, did not Rome fall only after some hundred years of military dictatorship? If so, America has yet turned to the next version of her, or have we already? As our enemies must be aware, the falling of yet another state run by Christian principles, replaced by teaming masses of third-worlders, must pose an enormous danger to those we don’t like. After all, we still own enough nuclear weapons to ruin someone’s day. And then there are the muslims taking over Europe. France and GB are nuclear armed are they not? What the Comintern has set up may well be the destruction of the entire civilized world and I think they know it.
