Heather Wilson Watch Day 5
Heather Wilson campaigned on fighting public corruption, but now that questions arise about her actions she is silent on whether she tried to use her own power to intimidate a federal prosecutor, said Jennifer Crider, Communications Director at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Heather Wilsons silence is deafening if she didnt do anything wrong, why wont she say so?
Background: As the House of Representatives prepares for its hearings into the firing of U.S. Attorneys, Senator Peter Domenici (R-NM) admitted he was one of the two New Mexico lawmakers to contact U.S. Attorney David Iglesias regarding an ongoing federal investigation taking place in New Mexico. Heather Wilson (R-NM-1) has been implicated in the scandal, but has refused to comment.
