Campaign mailers 'put NM undercover cop at risk'
Five local officials are urging the DA to stop the circulation
LAS CRUCES, N.M. - Five local law enforcement officials are urging Mark D'Antonio, the Democratic candidate for the 3rd Judicial District Attorney's Office, to halt the circulation of a campaign mailer they say identifies an undercover law enforcement officer.
The officer in question is Kip Scarborough, whom the D'Antonio campaign has identified as the district attorney's lead investigator and recipient of a 60-percent raise from incumbent District Attorney Amy Orlando between 2010 and 2011.
The D'Antonio mailer was sent to about 15,000 county addresses last week. It claims Scarborough received the pay bump for doing "essentially the same job he was doing before" and criticized Orlando, a Republican, for providing a "sweetheart deal."
