Those were Assembly Non-Majority Leader Michele Fiore's words to rightie talk-radio host Alan Stock Friday morning after showing him an installment agreement that mandates she pay the IRS $3,000 a month to pay off tax liens. I tuned in late because I was listening to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on KNPR -- I know, where are my priorities? But Stock vouched for the agreement, which her accountant helped explain and claimed some of the $1 million in liens were duplicates. Nevertheless, Fiore...
After more than a year of meetings, a coalition of elected and busienss leaders from Southern Nevada will meet Friday morning to finalize priorities for Session '15. In all my years of covering politics and the endless stream of sectional rhetoric, I don't recall this much sustained organization, this "Southern Nevada Forum" effort organized by Marilyn Kirkpatrick, the presumed speaker turned minority leader. The question remains, though: The South has all of the legislative leaders and...
We sort of knew it in 2014, as the governor and his men, not to mention Sheldon Adelson, worked around the ninnies running the state Republican Party. But end-of-year financial reports confirm what we already recognized: The NV GOP is a zero. As in raising no money. And having no money. And, yes, being an embarrassment to GOP officials and the national Republicans. The state report was filed a week early. And why not? Once again, the party raised nothing. That takes....talent. The party's...
Remember when Hillary Clinton came to Las Vegas last October to give an anodyne speech, collect $225,000 for it and raise money for the state Democrats and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid? I wondered who actually showed up for that political fundraiser, so I checked and found a major contributor to the California anti-gay marriage proposition and a developer once convicted of obstructing justice were on the list of donors. The full state party report is here -- the end-of-year for Reid is not...
With due apologies to Caesar, Crassus and Pompey, the Nevada triumvirate of Michele Fiore, Ira Hansen and Jim Wheeler, allies in trying to rule the new Assembly GOP majority, is slowly and embarassingly dissolving. Fiore had promised Friday to hold a meeting to get herself reinstated as majority leader, insisting that it would be held Monday at 3:30 PM in the caucus room at the Legislative Building after the inaugural ceremonies. It did not happen, just as Madame Tax Lien's serving in...
Lady Goodman has her second major event scheduled for next week with a host committee that would make Lord Goodman envious. It is so bipartisan, so eclectic, running the gamut from entertainer Wayne Newton to birther Wayne Allyn Root, and with every politician, former pol, lobbyist and business doyen her team could find. Look and marvel at the woman who will not have a serious opponent:
(I wrote this before I left for a few weeks.) The 2015 Legislature doesn’t begin until Feb. 2 and already this: The Republicans, who control the Assembly for the first time in 30 years, designated as speaker a man who once used phrases such as “simple-minded darkies” in columns and said on television, “I haven’t called anyone a homo for a long time.” That man, Ira Hansen, soon had to step down — only to be given the No. 3 spot in lower-house leadership. In his place, the Republicans held an “...
