Lawsuit alleges NM's assistant AG, Kenneth Casares Owens, got way too involved with day-to-day operations of a foreclosure-prevention nonprofit.
"An inexperienced New Mexico attorney general staffer bullied nonprofit employees and harassed a female worker on social media while using the name 'Mr. Smooth,' according to a new lawsuit. Court papers filed Monday in Santa Fe District Court say Assistant Attorney General Kenneth Casares Owens tried to control the day-to-day operations of the United South Broadway Corp. and prevented staff from doing outreach on foreclosure prevention while he was assigned to monitor homeowner consumer protection services." -- Russell Contreras, Associated Press
