Victoria Seaman, the assemblywoman running for an open state Senate seat by assailing a colleague for his tax votes, is portrayed as a "tax hypocrite" in mail pieces hitting mailboxes this week. Seaman, who has attacked Erv Nelson for backing the largest tax increase in history after promising not to raise taxes, is pilloried in the pieces as having signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge and then raised taxes. The delicious irony of the pieces is that they refer to serial failure Chuck Muth's...
As journalists from The Adelson News were in Oregon on Wednesday to accept an award for uncovering who owned their newspaper, the editor called a staff meeting to send a simple message: I'm the boss, and if you don't like it, you can quit. Multiple sources confirmed that Review-Journal Editor Keith Moyer, who has yet to return my call and canceled an appearance this morning on KNPR, called the staff together for a 10:30 AM meeting. The meeting was called with almost no notice. Several sources...
I acknowledge I have been reluctant to write anything about congressional hopeful Michael Roberson’s campaign of posting damaging documents about Danny Tarkanian because: Roberson, following the advice he gave state Sens. Patty Farley and Becky Harris last cycle, is hiding and hoping (a strategy that may prove fatal against Tarkanian, who is well known). The Tark docs are old, although they have never been fully reported before, even though I wrote extensively (as did others) about his troubles...
An affidavit filed by a Virginia law enforcement officer in support a search warrant for consultant Tony Dane, who is under investigation related to his involvement in legislative campaigns and the battle over speaker before the 2015 session, reveals through surreptitious recordings a conspiracy to intimidate Assemblyman Chris Edwards. The February 2015 affidavit, which I have posted here, has some astonishing exchanges from the recordings made by Edwards and by court-ordered wiretaps. It...
After missing a deadline to file slates for the Democratic National Committee and the state party's executive board, Bernie Sanders's Nevada representatives are lashing out at the Nevada Democratic Party. Foremost among those outraged is Democratic National Committeewoman Erin Bilbray, a Bernie Sanders backer who has accused state party officials of conspiring to move up the date to file from April 29 to April 25, sparking a nasty email chain I have obtained and posted below. "I am saddened...
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce plans to go up with three new ads in Nevada this week -- two in English, one in Spanish -- to boost Rep. Joe Heck's candidacy against Harry Reid -- er, Catherine Cortez Masto. The ads, which are all below, begin Tuesday in Las vegas and Reno. "For years, Harry Reid and Washington gridlock held Nevada back," the spots begin before touting Heck as The Greatest Congressman Ever. "This is the only opportunity in America to increase our numbers," Chamber political boss...
UPDATED, 4/26/16, 12:30 PM: John L. Smith has resigned from the paper, which was inevitable, I suppose. He left behind a short letter, saying he can "no longer remain employed" at the RJ because of "recent events," an obvious allusion to Editor Keith Moyer's gag orders. I talked briefly to Smith last night and this morning. He knew it was "impossible" to do his job after the Adelson stooge's edict. Moyer had a choice: Let Smith write columns with full disclosure or set a standard that anyone...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: 1. Exclusive look at a devastating affidavit that involves lawmakers, hangers-on 2.

Smartest-dumbest moves of the week I am giving you, dear premium subscribers, first look at some documents I have obtained – one a simply stunning look through a police affidavit of the sleazy tactics of...
Unopposed and unchanged, Assemblyman Ira Hansen sent a missive to his caucus mates this week criticizing GOP leaders and their "excessive expenditures on consultants." Hansen itemized about a quarter million dollars worth of spending on Cory Christensen, a close adviser to Majority Leader Paul Anderson, who last cycle formed the Growth & Opportunity PAC that helped take the majority. " A grossly disproportionate share of our funds has been, in my opinion, largely squandered on a single...
