SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A former campaign manager for New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez accused of hijacking her campaign's email system and lying about it is seeking information tied to a state contract for the Downs at Albuquerque.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports Jamie Estrada's attorney says in court documents filed last week that evidence related to the Downs Racetrack & Casino could reveal possible credibility problems with Martinez and other potential witnesses.
Prosecutors say the Downs case is unconnected to the charges Estrada faces.
Estrada briefly served as campaign manager in 2009 before being ousted by Martinez as she was starting her bid for governor.
Estrada is scheduled to go on trial July 15 for allegedly intercepting emails and making false statements to federal investigators.
