Former aide to New Mexico governor admits sending emails to rivals

By Joseph Kolb ALBUQUERQUE N.M. (Reuters) – A former campaign manager for New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez faces a year in prison for sending private emails to her political rivals, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office said on Tuesday. Jamie Estrada, who worked as Martinez’s campaign manager in 2009, pleaded guilty in federal court on Monday to unlawful interception of electronic communications and making false statements, said the spokeswoman, Elizabeth Martinez. He said he had diverted personal emails, internal political communications and messages from private citizens to the governor and her staff. Martinez, the spokeswoman, said Estrada, who is at liberty, faced up to a year and a day in federal prison. She said his sentencing date had yet to be fixed.
