UPDATE: I HAVE ATTACHED FULL COMMITTEE LISTS HERE. Here they are, adding to my post from Monday -- note Jason Frierson as THE up and coming sophomore, but Lucy Flores, not in good stead with the speaker, being given a shot as an assistant whip: Assemblyman Paul Aizley will serve as Speaker Pro Tempore, while Assemblyman William Horne will serve as Majority Leader. Assemblyman Jason Frierson will serve as Assistant Majority Leader; Assemblyman David Bobzien will be Senior Majority Whip with...
Secretary of State Ross Miller may yet cause a national sensation – and it has nothing to do with his voter ID law. Miller’s court case against Americans for Prosperity, a gigantic national conservative group founded by the Koch Brothers, could pull back the curtain on the organization’s donors. AFP spent a reported $33 million during Campaign 2012, according to Open Secrets. But, by federal law, as a 501C entity AFP does not have to disclose its donors. To the Federal Election Commission, that...
So you say, site readers. And it wasn't close when I asked who would be first out of the blocks. Poor Kim Wallin -- beaten by Wayne Allyn Root! There's a new poll up, too. Brian Sandoval 43% (93 votes) Ross Miller 21% (45 votes) Danny Tarkanian 10% (23 votes) Kate Marshall 6% (14 votes) Catherine Cortez-Masto 5% (12 votes) Ken Wegner 4% (10 votes) Brian Krolicki 3% (8 votes)...

Good morning, everyone. Think about it, dear Flashees: Today (as you will see below) is Mark Twain’s birthday and the new Caesars headliner is Shania Twain. And never the twain shall meet. (Hey, it’s Friday). Twain had so many great utterances, but this seems most apropos as Session ’13 looms: "It's far better the Legislature meet every 60 years for two days than every two years for 60 days." Ah, they once met for 60 days. Now it’s twice as long and twice as productive, right? Did you have a...
Good morning, everyone. My old pal, Howard Stutz, has the storyof the shakeup over at the Las Vegas Sun that occurred Wednesday and was broken by my producer and fellow former Greenspunite, Dana Gentry. The email sent late Wednesday to Sun employees: “In an effort to consolidate the Greenspun family businesses, Paul Hamilton, president of The Greenspun Corporation, has been appointed president of Greenspun Media Group. “I will remain publisher and editor of the Greenspun Media entities. “I...
Good morning, everyone. Man, that Ross Miller knows how to spice up a slow time of year, doesn’t he? The secretary of state’s voter ID proposal provoked Pavlovian reactions from Democrats, near and far. It’s never that simple, as I wrote, but this is going to be quite the show in Carson City and will garner national attention. Now that we know Gov. Brian Sandoval is supportive of the idea, let’s see what the Democratic leaders say. And speaking of those leaders, I chatted early this morning ...
