LAS CRUCES, N.M. - David Gutierrez has been asked to resign to his position of Dona Ana County treasurer.

Friday morning, Dona Ana County commissioners held a special meeting on the possible censure of Gutierrez.

Gutierrez is accused of offering an employee in his office $1,000 for sex and then interfering with her attempts to report it to human resources, said Dona Ana County spokesman Jess Williams.

Commissioners voted to remove Gutierrez as his county's elected delegate to the New Mexico Association of Counties, and asked for his resignation.

Gutierrez was not at the meeting, said Williams.

Gutierrez has been treasurer since January 2009.
