We’ve been writing about Jon Scott Ashjian, the official Tea Party of Nevada Senate candidate aiming to beat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) this fall.
Ashjian has been taking heat from groups that make up the tea party movement who say he’s just been set up to siphon votes from Republican candidates, and he’s also facing a felony charge of writing a bad check to a business consultant for his asphalt company. He’s also had his contractor’s license revoked and other business woes.
Geraldo Rivera asked Ashjian in a recent appearance on Fox News if he was a Democratic plant, a few days after the Tea Party Express group produced an Internet ad suggesting Ashjian is a fraud. Rivera also asked about the legal troubles.
