Democratic New Mexico Rep. Xochitl Torres Small claimed she never had trouble with the law in her home state before she came to Congress, but court records show something different.

During an interview with her hometown newspaper, the first-term lawmaker representing New Mexico’s 2nd District was asked by the Albuquerque Journal:

“Have you ever been arrested for, charged with, or convicted of drunken driving, any misdemeanor or any felony in New Mexico or any other state? If so, explain.”

Torres Small responded, “No.”

However, court records show in 2014 she was charged with driving without a license in Hobbs Magistrate Court. Torres Small had an outstanding bench warrant for four years when she failed to show up to court. Driving without a valid driver's license in the state of New Mexico is considered to be a misdemeanor.

The New Mexico Democrat finally paid the fines and fees well into her first term in Congress on July 31, 2019. Her case was dismissed on Sept. 29, 2019. The Washington Examiner attempted to reach out to Torres Small’s campaign for comment.

Torres Small represents a swing district where she is currently running in a tight race against the same Republican opponent she defeated by just 2 percentage points in 2018. President Trump won the district by a 10-point margin in 2016.
