Spy scandal! Queretaro law maker's phone tapped

Not too often Queretaro is in the news (and when it is, superb coverage is of course found here), so I couldn't resist this one: Pablo Ademir Castellanos Ramírez, state representative in the local Queretaro legislature, denounced that people from the Government Secretariat had tapped his phone. Not only that, Francisco Hernández Velázquez, a state official, allegedly even told Castellanos to "be careful with what to say when I spoke by telephone, because they had recordings of the phone conversations."

Pretty chilling - a state functionary threatening a law maker, in addition to tapping his phone.
From what I can see, no response from PRI Governor José Calzada Rovirosa to these very serious allegations.
