If you want to see Gondolier Numero Uno Sheldon Adelson's testimony in that breach of contract lawsuit by a former Sands consultant, you can. Seems a C-SPAN-like courtroom network will be webcasting the trial that begins April 3. Here's an email that went out from Courtroom View Network about the decision by Judge Rob Bare to lawyers in the case: I'm writing to let you know Courtroom View Network ("CVN") has been given permission by Judge Bare in Las Vegas to video record and webcast trial...
So Janice Ridondo is being helped by Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins. So he has been outspoken against the incumbent, North Las Vegas Councilwoman Anita Wood. So Ridondo is Collins' liasion and tenant. Is that any reason to call her a "pawn" for Collins? Have to love the mailer attached here.
Rep. Joe Heck was one of only 10 House Republicans to vote against the Paul Ryan budget this week, saying the budget hurts Nevada, citing the changing Obamacare landscape and fretting about public lands money. The problem with those explanations is that none really hold up under scrutiny and are dwarfed by the congressman's political concerns in a swing district and bluer and bluer state. Heck's rationale, through his spokesman, is in this story. Let's take a look: ►Heck's statement explaining...
Mining misconceptions: SJR 15 is no panacea, you can tax the industry without it, legal issues could kill all taxes
I was watching “The Agenda" today and listening to progressive activist Howard Watts III hype SJR 15 to remove mining taxation from the Constitution, and it spurred me to think of all the ways, some of them dangerous, that this issue is misunderstood. SJR 15 is being seen by the Left as some kind of litmus test for taking on the mining industry. But it is a much smaller part of the picture than you might think. How so? Herewith are 10 musings about misconceptions and history: 1. SJR 15...

Because the Assembly seated the Petitioner and did not exclude him from his legislative seat for failing to meet the qualifications of his office, the decision in...
Dems file complaint against ex-GOP Assemblywoman Gansert, say she illegally disposed of campaign funds
UPDATE: Lest you think the timing was an accident, the Democrats filed this on the eve of a hearing on Hickey and Brower's bill that was inspired by ex-Democratic Speaker Barbara Buckley. Tit for tat? Ya think? A former Democratic Party chairman has filed a complaint alleging former GOP Assemblywoman Heidi Gansert illegally kept campaign funds, then funneled them to a PAC she controlled and then disbursed the money. The complaint, field today by ex-Washoe Democratic Party Chairman Chris Wicker...
This is where lobbyists matter: XPressWest, under attack from Paul Ryan and Jeff Sessions, now has a letter of support (attached here), from Nevada legislative leaders, including two Republicans. The missive reads like a news release from XPressWest's consultants, R&R Partners, which has a strong capital presence and has been aggressively pushing back since the GOP attack on the train. So now the XPressWest has brought together Harry Reid and Dean Heller as well as a bipartisan group of...
