Sheriff Solano to donate funds to Charity

Sheriff Solano to donate funds to Charity
August 17, 2006
Sheriff Greg Solano will be donating $1000 to Mothers Against Drunk Driving and $1000 to Challenge New Mexico both local charities doing important work for citizens of New Mexico. The money represents money donated by Jeffrey Epstein to Sheriff Solano’s Campaign in 2005. Although the money had been spent and the election over in June of 2006 Sheriff Solano felt it was the right thing to do in this circumstance. Sheriff Solano will make the donations using a combination of new donations and his own money.

While I understand you are doing as other officials, including Gov. Richardson, have done, I do not understand your motives. Mr. Epstein has been accused of a victim-less crime. He did not earn the money he donated to you or others from this crime. He has not, so far as I know, been convicted. And even if convicted, can a "bad" man do no good?

I for one would be interested in your thinking on this.

Given that the girls were under age, I wish I had not written "victim-less crime." I apologize for mis-stating Mr. Epstein's alleged crime in my earlier comment. Their age clearly makes it far, far more serious.

Even so, I remain interested in your motivation.

okay...we've got MADD and have made major advances against DWI's...when will a FADD(Fathers Against Drunk Driving) POP up?
I nominate you as the you've been the leader in Santa Fe...bringing the DWI issue to the Governor's further attention so he could carry out his pledge to join the fight...he may be the new law man in town but the Police do all the heavy lifting...thanx
