Democratic New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has paid $150,000 to settle a claim of sexual harassment from a former campaign spokesman, according to financial documents filed Monday.

A campaign finance report from April revealed that Lujan Grisham’s campaign had paid $62,500 to a law firm representing James Hallinan, who alleged that the then-gubernatorial candidate had poured a bottle of water on his crotch in front of other staffers during a meeting and then grabbed his genitals through his clothes while she laughed.

Monday’s filing included an updated schedule of payments amounting to $87,500 between April and September, bringing the grand total to $150,000. The Albuquerque Journal reported that the last payment was made Sept. 29.
