Comments at the end tell the story.

LISTEN: New Mexico’s Republican governor harasses cops after hotel party draws noise complaintw Mexico Gov. Susana Martínez (R) attempted to badger police dispatchers after a holiday party last weekend held at a Santa Fe hotel drew a noise complaint, KOB-TV reported.

Authorities released audio on Friday of Martínez asking a dispatcher who called in the complaint. When the dispatcher says they cannot release that information, she replies, “Why can you not? It’s public record, give it to me.”

The audio also captures a conversation between the governor and a second person who will not tell her who complained about the gathering.

“Oh, you can tell the police but you won’t tell me?” Martínez says. “I’ll get it from the cops.”
