UPDATE: Legal eagles now providing unsolicited but potentially sound...legal opinions. Could lawmakers have an out with Article 15, Sec. 3? Sec. 3. Eligibility for public office. 1. No person shall be eligible to any office who is not a qualified elector under this Constitution. If Brooks were convicted of a felony, he is no longer a "qualified elector," so doesn't that mean he can't serve? Of course none of this would matter if Brooks were to resign or were to be expelled before...
Lawmakers will hear the teachers' union's margins tax proposal on Tuesday in a hearing that is sure to be full of sound and fury and signify punting. To the ballot, that is. But if it's not enough that Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick has poured cold water on the idea, during an appearance on "Ralston Reports", the Republicans are primed to rip the idea apart at the joint hearing. For the first time, the Assembly GOP has hired a policy adviser, Omar de la Rosa, who has helped the GOP form some...
UNLV student body president to Legislature, regents: I don't support what the rest of the student leaders want
UNLV student body President Mark Ciavola boycotted Nevada Education Day in Carson City last week and sent a scathing missive to regents and lawmakers about his colleagues' priorities. The memo, pasted below, indicates that Ciavola, a well-known Republican, former college GOP boss and ex-Rep. Joe Heck operative, is against many of the increased funding agendas of other student leaders. Ciavola clearly is causing controversy on campus, too, as this piece on a liberal website indicates. It's...
In a tart letter to Henderson City Attorney Josh Reid, attorney Todd Bice has essentially admonished the city not to use his client, Juliet Corp., to make its case against would-be stadium developer Chris Milam. The letter, attached here, is also not good for Milam because it says, contrary to news reports, that Juliet never made a deal with him because of what it discovered after doing its due diligence. (Bice was involved in Milam's dealings with the Hard Rock, which did not end well for the...
This is a big deal: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, known for his conservative social views, has signed onto an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act. Reid has always said marriage is between a man and a woman, although he has signaled the world changed after the president, ahem, evolved. But this is a much bigger step for Reid. Here's the amicus brief. And below are the 212 signatories (Reps. Steven Horsford and Dina Titus, not surprisingly, are on...
Ex-state Sen. John Lee's attempt to have a second political life and North Las Vegas Mayor Shari Buck's desire for her constituents to forget the dismal state of the city for a campaign season is playing out north of Owwns Avenue -- and it's not pretty. Lee started with a piece calling Buck "ethically bankrupt" and Buck began with one that describes Lee's multiple bids for different offices. All that money these two are going to spend on this race might be better served trying to solidfy the...
If there were any doubt that national (and local) Democrats won't leave Rep. Joe Heck alone for the next 600 days, a new robocall campaign on the sequester will end any doubts. After near-daily releases from the Nevada Democratic Party assailing Nevada's swing-district congressman, the Democratic Congressional Committee todays strats a call trying to press Heck on the sequester. Yes, you need to suspend any memories of where the sequester came from or of who (just about everyone) voted for it....
