August 31, 2014 • State News

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — Dona Ana County commissioners are calling on the county treasurer to resign following a complaint he solicited an employee for sex.

Commissioners on Friday unanimously voted to censure county Treasurer [auth] David Gutierrez, who was not present at the meeting.

Gutierrez declined to say if he will resign when asked by the Las Cruces Sun-News (http://bit.ly/1nKYuLB).

According to the complaint made by a female employee, she accompanied Gutierrez on a routine trip to the bank Aug. 18. She says Gutierrez asked if she would spend a couple hours at a hotel with him in exchange for $1,000.

Gutierrez later confirmed the solicitation to county officials looking into the complaint.

Commissioners say they will not take any more action and they cannot force the married Democrat to resign.
