254

Guam – Guam Police are continuing their investigation into a fake Calvo-Tenorio campaign document to find out who wrote it.

On Monday they made an initial arrest of a woman who is alleged to have distributed copies of the bogus document over the internet.

GPD Public Information Officer A.J. Balajadia says 52 year old Jeanette Munoz Guzman of Santa Rita was booked and released on misdemeanor charges of Crimes Against the Community, Guilt Established by Complicity and Official Misconduct. She was booked and released.

Guzman is a maintenance employee at Guam DOE.  Deputy Superintendent of  Finance Taling Taitano says she was called by police and informed of the arrest Monday.  Taitano said that a personnel action has been initiated against Guzman and it will follow the usual process, but she could not disclose any further details about the event.

The arrest was made after Police responded to a complaint that Guzman was distributing copies of a counterfeit Calvo-Tenorio campaign platform document during working hours. The document in question was a counterfeit off of the Calvo-Tenorio campaign platform “BluePrint 2020.”  The fake document suggested the Calvo-Tenorio would cut GovGuam jobs.

Officer Balajadia said there is no indication that Guzman was the author of the document and the case remains under investigation.
