It’s only Tuesday, but Attorney General Adam Laxalt is already having another very bad week…
The Nevada Independent: Tape: Laxalt asks regulator to intervene in Sands case, acknowledged ‘tough request’
Las Vegas Review-Journal: Bill to replace AG as gaming board counsel has Wednesday hearing
The Nevada Independent: Lawmakers schedule Wednesday hearing for bill inspired by Laxalt-Burnett secret recording
Reno Gazette-Journal: Democrats set hearings on bill in response to Laxalt tape
The Nevada Independent: Sandoval: ‘I will not hesitate to vigorously defend’ gaming regulators against ’empty claims’
@RalstonReports: The one question @adamlaxalt’s defenders can’t answer is simple: Why? Why the urgency (for state not Adelson) after dep AG said don’t do it?
@TVMoJoe: Far-right Nevada AG (and wannabe governor) talking openly about how big companies should focus on buying judges, not legislators. Oy.
@MichelleRindels: Per spox, @GovSandoval was also contacted by the Sands on their lawsuit, but did not appeal to Gaming Control Board on their behalf
