Attorney General Adam Laxalt (that same guy who potentially wants to be NV’s next governor) was busy today rubbing shoulders at the White House and just couldn’t miss an opportunity to see President Trump in person for his address to a joint session of Congress. Laxalt is attending tonight’s speech as the guest of Trump’s former Nevada campaign chairman, Congressman Mark Amodei. While Laxalt was flying all the way across the country for Trump’s big day, he still can’t be bothered to attend a hearing at the Nevada legislature down the road to answer questions from state lawmakers.
“While Adam Laxalt is off gallivanting in Washington, he still hasn’t shown up for a single committee presentation in Carson City. It’s becoming abundantly clear that Attorney General Laxalt cares more about shaking hands with Donald Trump and talking to die-hard Tea Party activists at CPAC than doing his actual job,” said Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange. “After suing the Obama administration for everything under the sun, it’s no wonder the most partisan Attorney General in Nevada’s history is turning a blind eye to the federal overreach and recklessness coming out of Donald Trump’s White House.”
