Muñoz wanted UNM Pres fired in exchange for confirmation vote

According to KOB-TV, a state Senator texted a University of New Mexico Board of Regents appointee that he would vote for his confirmation if the appointee pledged to fire the university’s president and Vice President of Finance. KOB-TV obtained the text messages and spoke to the appointee, Rob Doughty, and the senator, George Muñoz, D-Gallup. The full video report is available at the bottom of the post. Doughty told KOB he thought to himself that he was “being bullied by a particular Senator.” Muñoz, according to KOB, initially denied that he sent the text messages until he was shown them.”No,” Munoz replied.
