@DStewartAppeals I have felt this way since I covered the Clark County Commission in 1985.

Not a bad host committee for the ex-captain. MGM's Denice Miller, ex-Sheriff Jerry Keller and former Clark County Commissioner Chip Maxfield, along with a group of well-known developers and businessmen. Oh, and the attorney general.
Lawsuit alleges state conspired with employers to subvert intent of minimum wage constitutional amendment
Against the backdrop of a national debate on the minimum wage, a Las Vegas lawyer has sued the state alleging that employers, aided by the state’s labor commissioner, have systematically evaded a requirement of a 2006 constitutional amendment to provide low-income workers with health care. The suit, which is posted here, could unmask a symbiosis between regulators and employers, whose lobbyists, as so often has occurred in Nevada, use the administrative process to undo legislative or voter...
That's what Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said during an interview with MSNBC's Chuck Todd that will air Friday morning. You see, that’s what distinguishes Adelson from the evil Koch brothers: They are greedy and Adelson is ideological. And if you don’t believe that – that is, you are alive – then consider Adelson also has one other thing the Kochs don’t: Nevada residency. And he may be the only human being who could change the calculus for Reid’s re-election bid in 2016. If anyone holds...
It's part of a national campaign.
It's disingenuous. It's shameless. And it's good for Sue Lowden. The Nevada Republican Party's brain trust (misnomer alert) has purchased a billboard near Decatur and the 215 that will lead some to believe that Gov. Brian Sandoval is running on a ticket with lieutenant governor hopeful Sue Lowden when he actually has endorsed her primary foe, Mark Hutchison. This is conclusive evidence, not that any was needed, that Lowden's friends are pulling the strings for GOP boss Michael McDonald, who has...
"Press on, Southern Nevada. It's a new beginning." And so it, ahem, begins, the new ad for the still-alive Joint Operating Agreement between the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the one with the worst web site in the country, and the Las Vegas Sun, the one run by the would-be med pot baron and that prizes nightclub selfies. "We are fighting for you every day." Apparently by cutting staff. "And always remember, Press On." Although, with the soon-to-be-web-only Sun, it may be press off. Note: This is...
I’m not a suspicious guy. OK, strike that. I admit it: I’m a very suspicious guy. Anyone who covers politics should be. And being around government in Nevada for almost 30 years, I think I’ve earned the right. So when I see all these community luminaries, lobbyists and former politicians lining up for The Great Green Rush, my antennae go up. It’s not just that I know, despite some of their professions of altruism, that they smell the money in medical marijuana and want to inhale. Estimates are...
Lieutenant governor hopeful Mark Hutchison has taken his social media campaign against Sue Lowden to television, with an inevitable ad assailing his primary campaign rival for her contributions to Sen. Harry Reid. The ad even uses a truncated clip of Lowden's mea culpa web ad "explaining" those Reid contributions. Not nice. This came up during Lowden's 2010 challenge to Reid, which never materialized because she lost in the primary to Sharron Angle. And PolitiFact approved. Lowden's argument,...
Mesquite residents: No checkpoints since BLM left, but militia presence is “creepy” and “unsettling"
Three Mesquite residents say they have not seen any checkpoints in town as described by Rep. Steven Horsford but find the militia forces protecting rancher Cliven Bundy "creepy" and "unsettling." One of them, Tony Barron, said he agrees with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid that the militia types camped out near Bunkerville are “domestic terrorists” and that there were de facto checkpoints at the height of the standoff last month, which he said “had the feel of a wartime operation.” "My wife...
