When will the other Nevada politicians, government officials and judges face "criminal charges"??? This State is a joke. Watch the "freak show" in Cartoon City folks... Let's get these criminals locked up or even better, let's just hang 'em for high treason.

I am hoping that he is on unpaid leave, sure hate to think that tax dollars are paying this freaks wages. They need to remove him from the legislature all together, let the runner up that lost take this lowlifes place. The sad thing is that he come from North Las Vegas which has been trying to improve its image and he is the perfect example of the bad image NLV has had for years. he is going to hurt someone, hopefully he will just shoot himself in the head and be done. What a loser.

This guy has been developing a mental illness defense since he got booked for the threats on the legislator. Will be interesting to see how far they will go.
