From TPM Reader PC in Nevada …
Our governor was recently cleared of an FBI investigation, but he is in the
middle of a messy divorce with his wife, and he faces a lawsuit for shoving
a woman in a parking garage. Our Lt. Governor Brian Krolicki was indicted
last week. Fully six former members of the Clark County Commission, the most
powerful board in the state (it encompasses the Las Vegas Strip) have been
indicted or are in jail. The LA Times did a series on our awful judges in
2006. We had a state senator who was also (at the same time) head of the
mining association. We have a state senator who’s head of anti-union contractors group.
I have a reams of other examples.
Then there’s our rich history of mob ties.
