Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which is funded by New York's Michael Bloomberg, begins a statewide ad campaign Tuesday designed to induce Sen. Dean Heller to soften on guns. I doubt it will work -- Heller is not up until 2018, and despite his metamorphosis on other issues, I don't see him morphing much on guns. But the group is spending a small fortune for a buy through April 6 for ads personalized for Heller that look like this. According to figures in the public FCC file, here are some of the...
UPDATED BELOW AT 6:55 PM I have long believed that lawmakers -- or the vast majority of them -- want Assemblyman Steven Brooks expelled. But because this is the first one in history, you would think they would do it right. Or at least be careful. But then I remember of whom I speak: The Gang that Couldn't Expel Straight. With the latest idilocy -- Sun Political Editor Anjeanette Damon reports that the lawmakers want to keep a 300-page independent counsel's report on Brooks private -- the...
UPDATE: I have posted Ross' reply here, too. The gist: Pound sand. You know the end of the campaign is near: Suzette LaGrange, who is challenging Las Vegas Councilman Steve Ross, has sent a cease and desist letter to him because of accusations made in a series of mailers. The letter, attached here, demands Ross stop saying LaGrange was on the board of Nevada Association of Industrial and Office Properties when it advocated for toll roads. I find this whole tempest ironic coming from Ross, who...
After eight days of early voting and mail balloting, a strikingly small number of voters are poised to decide two mayoral races and one key Las Vegas council race. If this doesn't make the case for even-numbered muni elections (still the Legislature gently sleeps), I don't know what does: ►North Las Vegas mayor: 3,462, or 4 percent Overall turnout in 2009: 12.7 percent ►Henderson mayor: 6,976 Overall turnout in 2009: 14.7 percent, or 5 percent ►Las Vegas City Council, Ward 6 (Steve Ross): 1,904...
After Steven Brooks was taken for a mental health evaluation in January when police found him brandishing a sword at a relative's home, his colleagues began considering legislation to reform the so-called Legal 2000 process. One of the results was Assembly Bill 287, which defines how involuntary commitments would work. But the bill -- and the issue -- is not without controversy. And on Friday afternoon, Dr. Coni Kalinkowski, the medical director of Mojave Adult, Child and Family Services,...
If you want to see Gondolier Numero Uno Sheldon Adelson's testimony in that breach of contract lawsuit by a former Sands consultant, you can. Seems a C-SPAN-like courtroom network will be webcasting the trial that begins April 3. Here's an email that went out from Courtroom View Network about the decision by Judge Rob Bare to lawyers in the case: I'm writing to let you know Courtroom View Network ("CVN") has been given permission by Judge Bare in Las Vegas to video record and webcast trial...
So Janice Ridondo is being helped by Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins. So he has been outspoken against the incumbent, North Las Vegas Councilwoman Anita Wood. So Ridondo is Collins' liasion and tenant. Is that any reason to call her a "pawn" for Collins? Have to love the mailer attached here.
Rep. Joe Heck was one of only 10 House Republicans to vote against the Paul Ryan budget this week, saying the budget hurts Nevada, citing the changing Obamacare landscape and fretting about public lands money. The problem with those explanations is that none really hold up under scrutiny and are dwarfed by the congressman's political concerns in a swing district and bluer and bluer state. Heck's rationale, through his spokesman, is in this story. Let's take a look: ►Heck's statement explaining...
Mining misconceptions: SJR 15 is no panacea, you can tax the industry without it, legal issues could kill all taxes
I was watching “The Agenda" today and listening to progressive activist Howard Watts III hype SJR 15 to remove mining taxation from the Constitution, and it spurred me to think of all the ways, some of them dangerous, that this issue is misunderstood. SJR 15 is being seen by the Left as some kind of litmus test for taking on the mining industry. But it is a much smaller part of the picture than you might think. How so? Herewith are 10 musings about misconceptions and history: 1. SJR 15...
