Congressional hopeful Innis has tens of thousands of dollars in IRS, state tax liens and civil judgments
In a post about why he is running for Congress, Republican Niger Innis declared, "It's time our Republican Party had a fighter who can clearly communicate the enduring Conservative principles limited government, free markets, liberty and personal responsibility." I bet Innis, a Republican seeking Rep. Steven Horsford's seat, is going to see that line again because he has nearly six figures in state and federal tax liens filed against him, as well as at least four adverse civil judgments, public...
After this Las Vegas Sun piece by Andrew Doughman and the follow-up attack by Sue Lowden, I expect the lawmakers who went on the trip to Israel will amend their financial disclosures, even though they believe they are not required to do so. My feeling on this is that all of this stuff should be reported, whether required or not. It is true, though, that these folks did not try to keep ther Israel trip secret -- I reported on it shortly after it occurred. There are at least two documents worth...
I tried to find out what attorney general candidates Ross Miller and Adam Laxalt would have done had they been the governor's legal counsel in the Ninth Circuit Appeal of that gay marriage brief. Democrat Ross Miller responded, "Given the recent decision in Abbott Laboratories, I believe there is very little chance that Nevada's law will be upheld. Since I was not part of the discussions between Attorney General Masto and her client, the governor, I won't second-guess their decisions. But, I...
The state's health and human services department, which received a $6 million stimulus grant more than three years ago, is leaving a third of that money on the table after an information exchange shut down Friday. The Nevada Health Information Exchange, which had spent a portion of that money ($1.3 million) on a vendor and other costs, voted to close because of an inability to raise significant matching funds. Another $3 million was spent by the DHHS on other programs, Director Mike Willden...
Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week: 1. A glance at 18 candidates and PACs that are key to state Senate control and who gave -- a spreadsheet just for you, so you can see the numbers and who played both sides (not Las Vegas Sands, which is betting big on a GOP takeover) 2. The Sue Lowden interview -- an exclusive transcript for you 3. The Weekly insiders on smartest/dumbest moves of the week, Lowden's "Ralston Reports" performance and former Reidophilia, the city and county embarassments...
Words matter. Or they should, wherever they are, even in legal briefs. Perhaps it was the brandishing of laws prohibiting incest and bigamy to argue against gay marriage in a brief responding to a federal appeal. Perhaps it was asserting that Nevada laws encouraging “traditional marriage” actually “define Nevada society.” Or perhaps it was asserting that the 2002 constitutional ban on same-sex marriage “did not take away any right.” All of this may be technically "true" and legitimate lawyering...
Former state Sen. Dean Rhoads and ex-Assemblyman John Carpenter, two of the more respected and liked rural Nevada lawmakers, have signed onto an Elko fundraiser for Sue Lowden's lieutenant governor campaign. Rhoads, of Tuscarora, and Carpenter, of Elko, are listed on a fundraiser Lowden is having next month (see below). She also has two conservative assemblymen, John Ellison of Elko, and Ira Hansen of Sparks, on the invite, as well as some local officials. The rural vote will be...
