    Public campaign financing sets the stage for people being taxed to support candidates that they ordinarily wouldn’t touch with your ten-mile pole.

    How many black, Mexican or Jewish voters should be taxed to fund a neo-Nazi candidate? I say NONE.

    For what it’s worth, Article IV, Section 10 of the NM State Constitution DOES provide compensation for members of the Legislature:

    ARTICLE IV. Legislative Department

    Sec. 10. [Compensation of members.]

    Each member of the legislature shall receive:

    1. per diem at the internal revenue service per diem rate for the city of Santa Fe for each day’s attendance during each session of the legislature and the internal revenue service standard mileage rate for each mile traveled in going to and returning from the seat of government by the usual traveled route, once each session as defined by Article 4, Section 5 of this constitution;
    2. per diem expense and mileage at the same rates as provided in Subsection A of this section for service at meetings required by legislative committees established by the legislature to meet in the interim between sessions; and
    3. no other compensation, perquisite or allowance. (As amended November 7, 1944, September 15, 1953, November 2, 1971, November 2, 1982 and November 5, 1996.)

    So what exactly is McMillan’s complaint?
