What we all witnessed during Public Comment at the last County Council meeting on Dec. 13 was no doubt pleasing to former Councilor David Madore. Finger wagging, threats of not being reelected for some perceived support of a project no longer on the table, allegations of governmental bullying that should land council members in federal prison as the former chair of the Clark County Republican Party chimed in how wise it would be to pay heed to those vitriolic outbursts.
I say pleasing to Madore as ever since he was relegated to a minority position hardly a meeting passed that he didn’t hurl similar accusations, even though in a much more measured manner towards the council majority he quickly labeled “the Three Liberals.”

Unbelievable, but not surprising to see word leaking out at the Clark County Republican Party voting to oppose Republican candidates in the General Election. Candidates that are being challenged or opposed by Democrats!
These same Republicans voting to oppose Republicans in what I can only see as a continuance of their “purity purge” are the same ones whining constantly about “RINO’s electing Democrats.”
Yet here they come voting to oppose the only Republicans facing off against a Democrat in races.
This was bound to happen as I eluded too years ago when these fringe elements, being described by some as the “Alt-Right” took control of the party to promote their brand of politics.
