Balderas, in citing his job is to “ensure that public entities are accountable to the taxpayers,” asked for the following information from Abdallah:
• All contracts and any other agreements with suite holders from the 2010-2011 season until the present. • All invoices sent to suite holders during the same time period. • Any records related to the uses of revenue from suites, including any pledges to debt service or other obligations. • Any other documents that will assist the Office of the Attorney General in its review.
The Lobo Club is under the umbrella of the UNM Foundation, the university’s fundraising unit that claims it is independent
of the university and not subject to the same open records laws the university is as a public entity. It has told the Journal in the
past after email or IPRA requests it would not provide any information that included donor names or amounts donated and
wasn’t required to do so by law.
The AG’s request is clearly asking for such information.
Bravo Balderas! Krebs is probably hiding in Venezuela right now, and with good reason.
I feel sorry for Kyle James, ex-Aggie and Reggie's MBB operations man who for the last 4-5 years has been with Learfield and though not on the the Lobo Club staff, is part and parcel to its operation. Ex-Aggie Jalen Dominguez, a friend of James and an Aggie MBB player, is on staff. This stuff has been going on long before either arrived, but they may have been told to just go along. They are fine young men who just may be caught up in a $$itstorm.
The next big shoe to drop may be the missing $50k in the Hopkins affair, and possibly the devious money laundering by CFO David Harris that has helped cover up AD irregularities over the last 10 years.
The lobo club needs to be brought to heel. They and their lawyers think that they are beyond the law. I want to see a certain lawyer be brought to the public limelight. Certain loob boosters seem to hide behind curtains pretending that they give their life blood to UNM. I think that ,perhaps,that they have found a private watering hole from which they receive great benefits which also need to be examined by the IRS. If the lobo club will not comply then they need to legally comply and/or cease to exist as a semi public entity. I believe that they may be afraid of being criminally prosecuted and the public limelight be brought upon their self serving interests
