Yeah, disgraced former state legislator Daniel Patterson (or "Daniel R. Patterson," or "D.R. Patterson," or "Dr. Patz," as I hope he is called out on the streets), is supposedly entertaining thoughts of running for public office again. Good for him.
This comes from a tweet from Patterson, in which he says he'd run for the open LD3 seat if Macario Saldate steps down to apply for a job with the Department of the Interior.
Of course, looking at the ethics report that was filed (not to mention the domestic violence charges he was acquitted of that spurred the ethics investigation) and the way he quit just before nearly certainly getting bounced, it's difficult to say that Dr. Patz has as clean a record as he alleges.
So, uh. Good luck, Daniel. Let's hope this goes better for you than your political stint in New Mexico.
