ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Embattled Bernalillo County Commissioner Michael Wiener’s use of Gov. Susana Martinez’s picture in a recent campaign mailer is being called deceptive by her spokesman.

Scott Darnell says in a statement to [auth] the Albuquerque Journal ( ) that if the photo is being used to imply Martinez supports Wiener it would be “be highly dishonest and disappointing.”

Wiener has rejected numerous calls for him to resign since a photo surfaced of him with several young women in a Philippine city known for its prostitution. The fully-clothed women posed with him on a street.

Wiener has denied any wrongdoing on the Philippines trip

He is seeking a second four-year term. The mailer shows him with several politicians.

Wiener told the Journal on Friday that he never said the politicians endorsed him.
