Open Letter to Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge Kate

Cowboys for Trump co-founder charged with campaign violation | The Seattle Times

A New Mexico elected official was charged Friday with a misdemeanor campaign finance violation for refusing to register his political group Cowboys for Trump, the state’s attorney general announced.

Couy Griffin, a Republican county commissioner from Tularosa in southern New Mexico, has been facing off with state election regulators for more than a year over whether he needs to register the group as a political committee. Griffin expressed concern that registering may lead to other disclosure requirements about contributions and spending and in 2020 sued the New Mexico secretary of state after she insisted the group must register.

A federal appeals court last month rejected his arguments, upholding a lower-court ruling that the reporting requirement is valid. Attorney General Hector Balderas said Friday that leaves Griffin out of compliance with court orders to register the group.

“We live in a nation that ensures that no elected official is above the law,” Balderas, a Democrat, said in a statement. “Citizens have the right to expect reporting and disclosure transparency from all elected officials.”

Griffin forged a group of rodeo acquaintances in 2019 into the promotional group called Cowboys for Trump that staged horseback parades to spread President Donald Trump’s conservative message about gun rights, immigration controls and abortion restrictions.

Griffin told The Associated Press on Friday night that he’s planning a fresh challenge to the reporting requirement, this time with Trump attorney Sidney Powell, and expects to find success with the lessons learned from his unsuccessful appeal.

” Todo caminho, carrega consigo a esperança do começo. Começar todos podem, só não podem se perder entre distrações. Do contrário, tudo vira [ re]começo”. A vida precisa ter um ponto de partida e um ponto de chegada. Só não chega ao fim, aquele que se perde entre os próprios caminhos (…). Caminhe, mas saiba a direção que você deseja ir, porque se você não for capaz de corrigir os próprios erros, dará voltas em prol da própria estupidez, e nunca será capaz de chegar ao destino final.
