The state Taxation and Revenue Department may be facing more scandal after a troubled few years. Federal agents reportedly executed a search warrant at the department’s offices. KOB-TV was the first to report the search and quoted the department’s spokesman, Benjamin Cloutier, as saying the search is related to a classified employee and the department is cooperating with the investigation. Cloutier said the employee had been with the department since 2006 and has been placed on administrative leave. NM Political Report reached out to Cloutier Wednesday night and again Thursday morning for a reaction to the report but the spokesman did not respond.
