CARSON CITY, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Many political blogs are focusing in on headlines like this one: "Senator Squater: Heller won't give up office space," but is there validity to that?
Senior members of the Senate have the opportunity to take over desirable office spaces occupied by more junior members. Heller in particular has a larger than normal spot because he took over former Senator Ensign's office.
Capitol Hill paper "Roll Call" was one of the first to cite unnamed sources, saying staff within Heller's office are blocking people from touring their building location to see if it's worth moving to. "Roll Call" says they talked with a few other unnamed people who claim Heller's chief of staff even offered $10,000 in campaign contributions from the senator's PAC for someone to decline taking the suite.
Heller's office sent News 4 a statement reading: "This is beyond silly. We're disappointed that this has become fodder for pettiness among staff members."
It's likely that talk of this congressional office shuffle could continue through the end of April. News 4 will keep you updated.
