She didn't send her response for this article in time to make it in print, but former Secretary of State Rebecca Vigil-Giron says the audit released Tuesday by Hector Balderas is nothing new. Here's the e-mail response she sent last night.
"Can you believe that they waited more than 7 months to release this report. What timing! What was his motivation? I don't know!! Every bit of this report is Old News. I responded to everyone of the exceptions back in early 2007 to DFA and also to the EAC."
Vigil-Giron in the past has said she did nothing wrong with Help America Vote Act funds sent to the state.
