The Teddy Kennedy legacy lives on in New Mexico:
Sunland Park, N.M., Mayor Martin Resendiz says he was drunk when he signed nine contracts with a California company that is now suing the city for $1 million.
The Albuquerque Journal reports Thursday that Resendiz acknowledged during a deposition that he had been drinking for several hours with executives of the architectural design firm Synthesis and didn’t know what he was signing.
The town owes $1 million for work performed under the contracts, but according to Resendiz, his being drunk means it doesn’t have to pay. It’s a novelty to find a Democrat who deals with bills without raising taxes or debt ceilings.
Resendiz plans to run for Congress. Given the caliber of the modern Democrat Party, he ought to go far.
