Just before noon on Monday, five legislative police officers were dispatched to Room 3159 in the Legislative Building. That is the office belonging to Assemblyman Steven J. Brooks II, who would soon be meeting with Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick, whom he is accused of threatening, and Majority Leader William Horne. Two of the police officers, accompanied by Legislative Counsel Bureau Director Rick Combs, went into an anteroom inside Brooks’ office while the others met behind a closed door,...
Todd Bice, a well-known Las Vegas attorney, sent a letter to the district attorney this week accusing Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak of breaking the state's Open Meeting Law. I have already reported Bice's opposition to the county's coming changes (there is a meeting today) to the garbage agreement (he won't tell me who he is representing, other than to say people are upset). But now he has taken it further, writing a scathing letter (posted here) to the DA, using words such as "...
CARSON CITY -- If you were there in 1989, during the searing acrimony of the 300 percent pension increase, you really can’t believe. If you were there in 1997, during the special interest domination of the Session From Hell, you really can’t believe. If you were there in 2003, during the relentless nastiness of The Great Tax Debate, you really can’t believe. Too much experience with the Gang of 63 begets too much cynicism, too much exhaustion to have the strength to suspend one’s disbelief. But...
So a cadre of legislative leaders met Sunday in Carson City with troubled Assemblyman Steven Brooks, and he subsequently agreed to an indefinite leave of absence. I'm told Brooks emphasized he has a passel of medical problems -- as opposed to psychological -- that he needs some time to heal, using that as the reason for his leave. But the key here is that the select committee, to be appointed this week, will still go on with its business to investigate Brooks. So Democratic leaders breathe a...
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made a relatively rare appearance on a Sunday program today, interviewed by George Stephanopoulos on the "This Week" show. The full transcript is below, with a few of my annotations sprunkled amid the colloquy in italics. Some of the highlights: ----Reid said it would be a "bad day for the country and a bad day for the Republican Party" if immigration reform does not pass the House after it "certainly" passes the Senate ----Reid said "gay folks" should be...
