Clark County constable wonders if memos constitute "deprivation of rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution"

Yes, that's what Constable John Bonaventura, whose office some county commissioners want to abolish, says about two memos, attached here, about how to conduct business during the legislative session.

The memos have to do with procedures for getting travel to Carson City approverd -- just a week after one of Bonaventura's constables accompanied troubled Assemblyman Steven Brooks to the capital.

"Travel to Carson City that has not been requested by the county's lobby team is strongly discouraged," one of the memos reads from Manager Don Burnette.

The second Burnette memo has to do with channeling communications with lawmakers through the lobbying team.

So Bonaventura sent the memos to the media with this message:

Deprivation of rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution?

Conceptions of justice, political legitimacy?

Restriction of speech? Censorship imposed?

And so the follies continue....
