UPDATED, 2 PM: Martinez has filed suit alleging breach of contract and violations of the Open Meeting Law and asked to enjoin the district from hearing the agenda item. Both documents attached here. They are devastating. Also, more details about the roundtable Saturday.

The Washoe County School Board, which I confirmed today is under investigation by the attorney general for violating the Open Meeting Law, may have a problem with its scheduled July 29 meeting to consider Superintendent Pedro Martinez's status.

'There is no basis for it," Martinez told me late Tuesday. "They completely violated my contract." Martinez's dismissal was announced in a bizarre news release tweeted late Tuesday afternoon that said Martinez had been "relieved of duty." Most school officials were unavailable....
Responding to a report from CNN's John King that Sheldon Adelson may spend $100 million to help the GOP take the U.S. Senate, the Las Vegas Sands chairman's top political aide flatly denied it. "We are not spending $100 million on Senate races," Andy Abboud told me Monday. "We do not have a budget." But Abboud all but confirmed King's story about GOP consultants and others meeting with Adelson, expressing anger that anyone would be talking out of school. "There is no set budget for the cycle...
A couple of Republican state Senate candidates have begun distributing pieces to voters to try to frame the debate in districts critical to determining state Senate control. Following in Michael Roberson's footsteps a couple of weeks after he set the tone in the other competitive district, the minority leader's handpicked candidates, Becky Harris and Patricia Farley, have kicked off their own general election campaigns. The pieces they are dropping at voter doors are attached here. Harris,...
