New Mexico: Plea agreement offered for Otero County Commissioner

A confidential plea agreement has been offered by federal prosecutors to Otero County Commissioner Couy Griffin for his role in rioting at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. Griffin, the founder of Cowboys for Trump, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor criminal charges. Griffin denies that he violated the law.  Signatures gathering had already started in the recall effort, as the Judge greenlit the recall effort (New Mexico is a Malfeasance Standard state).

In addition, Griffin has been accused of calling for the murder of the Governors of Virginia and Michigan, and called for violence at President Joe Biden's inauguration. 

Petitioners would need 1574 signatures in 90 days.
