First it was Gov. Brian Sandoval moving to the middle on immigration issues. And now, just a few moments ago, the Senate Republicans, apparently kicking off their 2014 effort to retake the upper house (OK, I'm cynical), issued this release: The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles, with the support of Governor Brian Sandoval, announced this week that its policy would be to honor the employment authorization card granted to successful applicants under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's (...
April Mastroluca, a Democratic assemblywoman poised to play a key role in the 2013 Legislature, will send a letter to Gov. Brian Sandoval on Friday announcing her resignation. The stunning move comes after the potential Ways and Means chairwoman decided, she says, that she could no longer serve because of what she described as family issues. She declined to elaborate, but she sounded shaken during a phone conversation. I had been told by a couple of good sources that her employer, the national...
I understand that Hispanic advocates are ecstatic about the record turnout in Nevada this cycle, as much as 19 percent of the vote, according to exit polls. Indeed, the Latino landslide for President Obama helped him easily win Nevada again. Exit polls showed Obama won Hispanics by 50 points or more, contributing to his more than 6 percentage point win here. But America's Voice, a leading national group advocating for immigration reform went a bit too far in its post-election hype about Nevada...
In an email sent to employees today, one day after KSNV and the Review-Journal reported on a management shakeup, Paul Hamilton, overseeing the Greenspun family finances and now in firm control of the Las Vegas Sun, sent this to the newspaper's employees: Last night, a story was circulated regarding changes in the management of the Greenspun companies. I would like to set the record straight on a couple of points. First, the board’s recent actions regarding management of the Greenspun Media...
In what has become a familiar pattern, a court has swatted away failed congressional hopeful Danny Tarkanian's attempts to avoid paying any money toward a $17 million judgment against him and his family. Tarkanian staved off filing bankruptcy during his campaign in what was seen as an obvious move to preserve his electoral viability. But that may no longer be an option after a couple of court decisions this week -- the documents are attached here. The first was the federal court in California's...
UPDATED WITH GOV. BRIAN SANDOVAL REAX BELOW WEDNESDAY MORNING UPDATE -- THE SPEAKER...SPEAKS, ALSO BELOW It’s hard to imagine a more unlikely sponsor of a voter ID bill than Democratic Secretary of State Ross Miller. During the last two cycles, Miller has fought back against assaults on the integrity of the electoral process. In 2008, Miller debunked various allegations and prosecuted ACORN, linked to his own party. In 2012, he pushed back against wispy GOP allegations of potential fraud and...
I understand the “newspaper” has lost a lot of institutional knowledge with its gutting of its editorial work force during the last six months. But this morning's editorial either tendentiously or ignorantly erases history to make an ideological point. The Las Vegas Review-Journal piece is about the state-county settlement on that lawsuit sparked by the Legislature’s local government money grab, which the state Supreme Court, in one of the seminal decisions in state history, called into...
