Tim Wildmon warns of a “Gay Gestapo.” Andrea Lafferty raises the specter of “Islamic shariah law at home and abroad.” James Dobson foresees the apocalypse if gays are allowed to marry, saying it will "destroy the Earth.” These people? These people! So now the lines are as clearly drawn as they could be in the battle of good vs. evil, a k a the fight between the obvious site for the 2016 Republican National Convention and those who would try to frighten the RNC away from Las Vegas. The...
One day after Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins referred to some Utahns as "inbred bastards" and warned of violence if they came to support rogue rancher Cliven Bundy, his colleagues were mulling whether it's time for an intervention. Collins' bellicose comments were first exposed on a website designed to support Bundy. Collins confirmed to me that he made the comments to Piute County Commissioner Darin Bushman, but said he was only concerned about violence. "He called me yesterday morning...
Do six figures in fines for underage gamblers getting into his casino in Pennsylvania show Sheldon Adelson's hypocrisy or buttress his case against full-blown online gaming? That's the latest front in the war between advocates for web gaming and the Las Vegas Sands chairman. His enemies have discovered $220,000 in fines at Sands Bethlehem since 2010. To wit, courtesy of the PA gaming regulators: DATE OF FINE VIOLATION AMOUNT OF FINE September 2013 Four instances of underage gambling...
Now this is funny, and you don't see it often: A candidate writing to a campaign manager: April 9, 2014 Mike Slanker Dear Mike, Thank you for allowing your client, Sen. Mark Hutchison, to debate me on Nevada Newsmakers next month. I'm writing this letter to respectfully ask that you please change your mind and allow your client to debate me on several other TV and/or radio stations in the Nevada lieutenant governor race. I know Jon Ralston and Alan Stock have both...
I expected some reaction in the increasingly ugly war over online gaming between Sheldon Adelson (and a few allies) and the MGM Grand/Caesars/American Gaming Association alliance when I exposed former Rep. Mary Bono's playing both sides. It came swiftly. I have now obtained a proposal from last November to Caesars from Dickstein Shapiro, the huge lobbying/law firm now working for Team Adelson. The proposal, which is attached here, was designed to combat Adelson's assembling of attorneys general...
Two months ago, former Rep. Mary Bono announced she would be heading up the Coalition for Consumer and Online Protection, the outfit erected to fight Sheldon Adelson's proposed poker ban. "I am proud to be a part of the Coalition for Consumer and Online Protection to make sure that people know the risks behind implementing such a ban," declared Bono, a former GOP congresswoman from California who is now a DC consultant. In a Roll Call op-ed, Bono argued for protecting children and for states...

To hear the bleating partisans tell it, the most recent Supreme Court decision on campaign finance struck the greatest blow for the First Amendment since Madison wrote it or sent America into the hands of oligarchs more inimical to democracy than George III ever was. The truth, as ever, resides nowhere near these poles, neatly echoed by the majority and minority court factions that declared they wanted to protect the benighted American populace from corruption. Beyond the silly sophistry and...
