Wow, Nevada AG Adam Laxalt Is Having a VERY Bad Week

Carson City, NV – The most partisan and unethical Attorney General in Nevada history Adam Laxalt is having a very bad week as he becomes engulfed in a major pay-to-play corruption scandal with his biggest campaign donor Sheldon Adelson. With this much attention on his shockingly unethical behavior, Laxalt should probably be less focused on running for Governor and more worried about whether he can finish out his term as Attorney General.
