The power of incumbency for appointed Commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick. The fundraiser below should take care of the message-sending and cash-building, assuming Steve Sisolak doesn't take all the money for his gubernatorial campaign. I'm sure would-be Commissioner Steve Ross can find something else to do.....
The Culinary union, which has been lobbying for an end to the so-called Cadillac tax in Obamacare, began a Spanish-language radio ad today targeting the Democratic presidential candiodates in advance of next week's debate. It mentions a Republican (Dean Heller) friendly to the cause and takes a pretty tough line. The script: We welcome the Democratic candidates for President to Las Vegas...where we live and work and raise our families. Democrats haven't welcomed us in Washington. When we...
A couple of weeks after Elko school trustees, encouraged by three conservative legislators, declined to invoke an anti-bullying law to protect a transgender student, the ACLU of Nevada is signaling it intends to sue. On Tuesday, the ACLU sent a letter (see below) that demands the district respond by Tuesday: "The Elko County School District’s refusal to allow Doe to use the boys’ restroom violates Title IX, the Equal Protection Clause, and both Nevada public accommodation laws and Nevada laws...
After Clark County Chairman Ed Williams resigned from the state party's executive board, citing Chairman Michael McDonald's problems, the leader who bankrupted the state GOP, was hired in a six-figure no-work job by the state treasurer and is enmeshed in a scandal fired back. In his missive sent to Republicans, McDonald attacked Williams, the Review-Journal for reporting on his latest depredations and then wrote this, one of the funniest paragraphs I have read in a long time: Chairman...
Donald Trump will hold a rally in Las Vegas on Thursday at the Tresaure Island, which is owned by his pal, Phil Ruffin. "Join Donald Trump in Las Vegas to hear his vision on how to Make America Great Again!" the emailed invite for the noon rally in the Mystere Theater (Trump du Soleil!) says, which also has a link for those who want to attend to click on an Eventbrite. Only problem: There is no clickable link. (Details do not matter to this campaign!) The theater also is a relatively small...
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Michele Fiore and John Moore. Take them. Please. (Sorry, Henny.) Fiore, who is busily preparing a congressional bid (Health plan: Treat all cancers as fungi!), and Moore, famous mostly for being a Fiore echo, have each endorsed two candidates now in the presidential race. So, too, has Fiore's BFF, Victoria Seaman. Oh, GOP Ass. Caucus. I have missed you so. Today, Moore, of all people, the man who shouldn't even have been in Carson City except Jason Frierson fell...
This is smart, the day before the Oct. 13 Democratic presidential debate at The Wynn.
I didn’t want to write about this. I really didn’t. But they have left me no choice. “They” are members of The Barnacle Caucus, the lowlifes who attach themselves to the ship of politics and serve no useful purpose. They are slimy but usually no more than annoying. This time, though, they have sunk to a new level, which now cannot be ignored because it has been pushed to the public airwaves. I’ll keep this as short as I can for reasons that will become obvious. But this is yet another story...
