A Public Regulation Commission employee was suspended for mixing political and state business.

Pipeline Safety Bureau supervisor Sefie Anaya was suspended for 10 days without pay.

Anaya's state-issued cell phone number was found on the state Democratic party website.

Using government phones for political work is a violation of the PRC's code of conduct.

Anaya, who is chairman of the Socorro County Democratic Party, told KOB Eyewitness News an intern mistakenly put his work number on the website. The number has been removed from the site.
