UPDATED WITH TRANSCRIPTS OF INTERVIEWS WITH TRUSTEES AND MARTINEZ The attorney general's office has filed a seven-count complaint against the Washoe County School District for its botched firing of Superintendent Pedro Martinez. Martinez is back at work and took a $25,000 settlement, but the AG is not done with the trustees. The AG wants up to $500 for each count from each trustee for violating the Open Meeting Law and the public trust. More to come, but complaint attached here.

It seems both Becky Harris, running against state Sen. Justin Jones, and Patricia Farley, taking on Assemblywoman Marilyn Dondero Loop, have a lot in common, including apples and Gov. Brian Sandoval.

Taylor, who has been very critical of the Obama Administration, but also has sections criticizing the GOP.

On Labor Day, GOP Treasurer contender Dan Schwartz has made a small TV buy with a couple of 15-second spots. The ads are bio spots (below), with one strangely saying he will "defend the Millennium Scholarships" (the Legislature decides where that money goes) and will recover $50 million "stolen from our classrooms," a reference to this earlier misfire by him. Schwartz recently was pummeled by Democrats for essentially not understanding the state general fund, which he said in a speech was "...
