SANTA FE – Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s office on Thursday denied allegations from a former campaign spokesman that the first-term Democratic governor had sexually mistreated him last year in front of other campaign staffers and supporters.
The ex-spokesman, James Hallinan, told the Journal he plans to report the incident to law enforcement when he returns from traveling out of the country. He also said he was pressured not to report the incident and not to quit Lujan Grisham’s campaign after it allegedly occurred.
“It’s literally eaten at me every single day” since the incident took place, Hallinan said in a telephone interview Thursday. “You don’t get to be in power and treat people the way she does.”
