ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The state Democratic Party’s executive director has accused a republican state representative of failing to report her income as is required by financial disclosure law.

KRQE-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2bCjlRx ) that Rep. Sarah Maestas Barnes, R-Albuquerque, says the complaint filed with the secretary of state last week is politically motivated.

The complaint says Barnes failed to disclose a $91,000 annual deal her husband has to rent space to the state Human Services Department. In Barnes’s first two financial disclosure forms she did not include the agreement, which would have been listed under a questions asking it the elected official or their spouse has provided good to services to a state agency.

Barnes, who filed a corrected financial disclosure earlier this month, says her husband doesn’t tell her the details of all of his business and that she reported it as soon as she became aware.
