The Coalition for Nevada's Future, the group expected to be funded by gaming and other interests to fight the effort to repeal the tax increase passed this year, filed suit today seeking to short-circuit the would-be repeal campaign. The suit, which you can see below, basically says that everything that can be wrong with a petition is wrong with this one, including violating the single-subject rule and having a misleading description of its effect. That's why this repeal group, led by Citizen...
Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week: 1. A couple of exclusive premium nuggets -- those American Federation for Children mailers and a new Becky Harris PAC 2. This is the way Fiore's career ends....or is it? 3. Will Cortez Masto go for the Iran deal? 4. What will be the biggest 2016 issue: School choice, tax repeal, pot or Issue X? 5. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week ►Line of the week, on the tax repeal lawsuit: That thing has more spelling errors than a Victoria Seaman birthday...
A new lawsuit filed by three members of the Assembly and their Citizen Outhouse adviser seeks to declare the new tax bill invalid before it can be repealed. Oh, yes: I'm serious. The suit, which is below, was filed by We Decide Coalition (the would-be repeal outfit) boss Chuck Muth and Assembly members Michele Fiore, Shelly Shelton and John Moore. Muth partner Dan Burdish was with Fiore almost all session and Shelton and Moore, especially, were her Carson echoes. The suit was filed by rabble-...
Senate hopeful Catherine Cortez Masto really, really doesn't want to say anything about the Iran deal
Many have tried to find out where U.S. Senate candidate Catherine Cortez Masto stands on the Iran deal, which her opponent, Rep. Joe Heck, opposes. I have tried, most recently as a week ago and got this from her campaign: "Still reviewing the agreement." Even after Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid came out for it last weekend, his would-be successor is still mum. (Of course, Prince Harry says her position doesn't matter. Yes, why should she take a stand on one of the most important foreign...
The secretary of state's office on Wednesday posted a fiscal analysis of the tax repeal petition showing (see spreadsheet below) the $667 million in revenue that would be lost if it passes. What happened next provided an unfortunate preview of the campaign to come. First, I posted the document on my Twitter feed. Reacting to the news, the man who filed the petition, Citizen Outhouse chief Chuck Muth, frothed on Twitter: .@BrianSandoval's propaganda war to save his tax hike has begun w/release...
Michele of the Thousand Gaffes and Tax Liens Fiore was in Washington, DC, this morning, making her case for Congress to Grover Norquist's "Wednesday meeting" at Americans for Tax Reform headquarters, sources confirm. The meeting, which has been going on for decades, gives candidates a chance to show their wares to an influential conservative audience. One source told me that Fiore made it sound as if it is a foregone conclusion that she is running for Rep. Joe Heck's seat. But Fiore, who has...
GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, who has made cracking down on illegal immigration the centerpiece of his rise to the top of the field, has hired a young Hispanic activist to helm his Nevada effort. Charles Munoz, 26, who helped organize the Americans for Prosperity chapter in the state, has been tapped to run Trump's nascent effort in Nevada. The Washington Post first reported the hiring Tuesday. Munoz, who was not available to comment, was selected after a small number of interviews conducted in...
In the ongoing legal war over the minimum wage in Nevada, which has been going on for more than a year, those who say the regulations don;t refelect what the people passed quietly have won a meaningful court victory. Judge James Wilson, in an order you can see below, has invalidated two of the regs. One allowed employers to count tips from customers in figuring how much they could charge minimum wage workers for their health insurance. And the other allowed employers who wanted to pay $7.25...
Here's the full email ex-Rep. Shelley Berkley sent this week for a new PAC opposing the Iran deal and lamenting the "vile rhetoric and intense political pressure from the White House and its allies." Hi there,I hope this e-mail finds you well.I wanted to fill you in on an important new project that I'm proud to be working on-- the launch of Progressives for a Better World PAC (PBW).PBW is a federal political action committee that endorses and supports bold progressive candidates fighting for...
Here's my exchange on "Ralston Live" on Monday evening with presidential candidate Ben Carson on the controversy over his involvement with fetal tissue and his position on abortion, which is no exceptions (video below transcript): Jon: (reading off still) Carson told Weigel that there really is no conflict between the research he did and his anti-abortion rights views today. Jon: You don’t think there’s a conflict at all? Really? Carson: No I don’t. First of all, going back 20-25 years...
