In a roundtable with reporters from various news organizations, including The Washington Blade, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made some fairly stunning statements, even for him. I don't mean Reidsims, his verbal pratfalls that have become legion and legend. I mean some remarkably personal disclosures about his family and faith as it relates to his positions on social issues now that the Senate has passed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. This is a continuing pattern of late from Reid,...
UPDATE ON 11/6/13: I received an email Tuesday from Jane Taber, the wife daughter of Washoe GOP boss Tom Taber, that said the following to try to distance the party from the radio show he hosted after much blowback, including the governor cancelling a party fundraising appearance: I read your summary of a recent radio broadcast that included participants from the Washoe GOP. If you are planning to update your story, following are comments from from Tom Taber, chair of the Washoe County...
I have held off writing this for some time, for reasons that will become obvious. But my patience is at an end. Let me say this without hesitation: Senator Dean Heller’s office is the most unprofessional I have worked with (or not!) in a quarter-century of covering politics. So why should you care? Why is this relevant? I acknowledge it is impossible to write about this topic without seeming self-serving, like a peevish, arrogant journalist not getting his way. So be it. .But I have never, in...
That's the president of the United States talking about the Senate majority leader, who was claiming publicly in 2012, everywhere he could, that Mitt Romney hadn't paid his taxes for years. So say Mark Halperin and John Heilemann in "Double Down," their sequel to "Game Change," which contained that famous "Negro dialect" passage from Reid. The majority leader did not deny he said that, nor has he denied his source on the Mitt tax story was Jon Huntsman, Sr. (I have discovered that Reid...
The full statement about Assemblyman Jim Wheeler is attached here. I gather the caucus "wholeheartedly" repudiating remarks "in their totality" is pretty severe. So harsh Wheeler voted for it, too!
You may think what I have posted below is a parody. It is not. You may think what I have posted below is some feverish dream. It is not. You may think this is another Stephen Colbert lampoon. It is not. No, this is a resolution passed by the Lyon County Republicans on Saturday, suggesting Assemblyman Jim Wheeler, he of the infamous slavery comments, "has come under attack by forces employing unethical (!) pressure in an attempt to manipulate Nevada's Legislature, diluting the voice of The...
Imagine the scene at the newly finished MGM Resorts arena: Sheldon Adelson and Steve Wynn share the stage after delivering blistering indictments of President Barack Obama and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. “And now,” Adelson intones, “let me introduce you to the next United States senator from the great state of Nevada, Brian Sandoval.” “Say goodbye, Harry (Reid),” Wynn laughs, as the governor comes onto the stage, the crowd of convention delegates goes wild and outside a small group of...
Despite bleating from his fringe supporters that the controversy is all about his ideology, Jim Wheeler now has a public critic whose conservative bonafides are not in question. Assemblyman John Hambrick late Thursday issued an open letter to the assemblyman who said he would vote for slavery if his constituents wanted it and who thinks Southern Nevada should be excised from the state. The missive questions whether Wheeler should remain in office: Jim, Your recent remarks on slavery bring...
First, we had the hint that lieutenant governor's contender Sue Lowden was tapping into her old Vegas network. Now more evidence as her second event wll be at a place that is redolent of old Vegas: Piero's, owned by Freddie Glusman, who is on her host committee. There's a lot of money here, too, including her good pals the Weidners (Bill used to be Sheldon Adelson's lieutenant and Lynn goes back to New Jersey with fellow beauty queen Lowden), boxing promoter Bob Arum and developer Mark Fine....
