ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The state’s Supreme court has blocked Sheriff Manny Gonzales’ attempt to secure public financing for his mayoral campaign. The Albuquerque city clerk denied Gonzales more than $600,000 over forged voter signatures and donations. Gonzales claimed he wasn’t involved and still had enough valid signatures to qualify but the clerk affirmed the decision last week.
