In 1995, just three days into her tenure as Secretary of the New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department, [Rep. Heather] Wilson [R-NM] removed a routine working file alleging that her husband had engaged in inappropriate contact with a minor. The file was then transferred to the department’s attorney in her own Albuquerque office, where it soon went missing.

Brian Beutler has the story.
