Assembly Republicans: Sandoval guilty of "treason"

Assemblywoman Michele Fiore and Assemblyman Brent Jones, appearing on the radio, recently accused Gov. Brian Sandoval of "treason" and said that is why the GOP is "excommunicating him."

That was a reference to the $1.4 billion tax increase, supported by 80 percent of lawmakers, inlcuding a majority of Republicans in both houses. They also accused the governor of only "sticking to his guns" for people "who write him fat checks," as Fiore put it.

In addition, the Mensa duo reiterated their support for a failed bill to ban transgender kids from their chosen bathrooms, with Fiore arguing, "I don’t feel like looking at your penis! Nor do I want you looking at my Va Jay Jay."

Yes, these are duly elected officials in the state of Nevada, folks.

Their comments came on last weekend's episode of Fiore's show, "Walk the Talk," which she co-hosts with Brian Wilson.

The discussion of Sandoval began with Wilson expressing disgust and talking about Sandoval's supposed betrayal. And then it degenerated from there:

Fiore: "No, he doesn’t betray everyone. He sticks to his guns for the people who write him the fat checks. He does whatever they want."

Wilson: "I said he betrays everyone who voted for him."

Jones: "Yes."

Wilson: "He was perfectly honest and aligned to everyone who paid for him."

Jones: "Well you talk about that what was really amazing for the first tax when he introduced it. His own guy (Chief of Staff Mike) Willden said, 'Well we have been working on this tax for over a year.'"

Fiore: [laughs]

Jones: "And the governor was out campaigning saying that he didn’t want this tax (2014's margin tax)....because he saw it was so unpopular. So he is campaigning we need no… I mean NPRI did a great… I mean NPRI is a Nevada Policy Research Institute did a great little snippet of Governor Sandoval on all these news programs saying how bad taxes will hurt business. How whatever and that’s what he campaigned on. and then of course as soon as he got elected he completely changed it. And people believe what he campaigned on. They think that’s who Governor Sandoval is. They don’t realize what he just did and now there’s a learning that’s why so many Republican parties are censoring him, excommunicating him. because it was a betrayal of our trust. It’s treason."

Fiore: "Totally treason."

Treason! Ah, what a keen sense of history and language they have.

Earlier, the Assembly members were chatting about the failed attempt to discriminate against transgender kids in the Legislature, an issue so important to Jones et. al. that they have put it in their new Contract with Nevada.

Here's their elevated discussion on that topic -- remember this was about transgender males being able to use the boy's bathroom and transgender females being able to use the girls' bathroom: 

Fiore: "I was raised by my best friend in the whole wide world is my mom and she is a lesbian. But I will say with the bathroom issue is as a heterosexual female I want to be in the bathroom, I want to be in the shower with other girls and if you are transgender and you have a penis… I don’t feel like looking at your penis! Nor do I want you looking at my Va Jay Jay. So I don’t care if you want to have a Va Jay Jay, until you have a Va Jay Jay stay out of my nakedness area! That’s it."

Jones: "Okay well you’re a little bit more abrupt than I am. But I just think the children themselves[chuckles] should have the security that they know… Particularly when they are developing..."

Again, I want to remind everyone: These are elected officials.
