New Mexico Democratic governor’s campaign pays ex-staffer over crotch-grabbing incident

Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s campaign has made payments totaling $150,000 to a former campaign staff member who claims she grabbed his crotch after pouring a bottle of water on him.

Her campaign made an additional payment during the past six months as part of a broader settlement with the former campaign staffer, who accused the New Mexico Democrat of sexual mistreatment.
