Yesterday, Nevada Democrats falsely accused Governor Lombardo of accepting bribes on social media, but deleted the post shortly thereafter. According to state statute, it is a misdemeanor to falsely accuse someone of a crime and the penalty could include up to six months in jail.

The popular talking point, “No one is above the law” will likely be ignored, but the post did not go ignored by Lombardo’s supporters and the Republican members of the legislature. Our attempts to contact the party’s chair Assemblywoman Daniele Monroe-Moreno and Majority leader Steve Yeager for comment were not returned at the time of publishing.

Numerous Republican legislators responded on X (formerly Twitter) and the Nevada GOP demanded an apology.

The NV Dems are currently hiring for numerous positions on their communications team. As the Nevada GOP noted, they may need to hire a new Communications Director.

“For months, the Nevada Democrat Party has looked the other way while scandal after scandal is uncovered within their leadership, but they have no problem completely fabricating a bribe attack against a popular Republican Governor and former Sheriff,” said Better Nevada PAC spokesman John Burke. “Imagine the outrage Chairwoman Monroe-Moreno would have if a Republican organization made baseless allegations against a Democrat leader. This November voters will bring their long culture of corruption to an end.”

The Globe has extensively chronicled the ethics scandals that have plagued Democratic lawmakers in the Silver State.

Michelle Gorelow (AD-35) announced that she will not be seeking re-election in her swing district after she was exposed by the RJ for voting in favor of the pork legislation that directed $250,000 to Arc of Nevada. A month after her vote, Gorelow became the nonprofit’s director and is only one of two employees at the organization.

Adding to the grift is Gorelow’s Democratic colleague Tracy Brown-May (AD-42) who serves on the board of Arc and voted to approve the appropriation without disclosing her association with the organization.

Assemblywoman Bea Duran (AD-11), a Culinary Union activist, announced she was dropping her re-election bid in order “to spend more time with her family” after she came under pressure for voting on a “Christmas Tree” bill that allocated $25 million to the Culinary unknown for an unknown “capital improvement project.”

Senator Marilyn Dondero-Loop (SD-8) suddenly scrubbed any mention of her affiliation with the United Way of Southern Nevada from her legislative bio after the RJ exposed that she and the Chair of the Nevada Democratic Party, Assemblywoman Monroe-Moreno, admitted that they “sat down and compared notes to determine which organizations would get money.”

Monroe-Moreno further admitted admitted she was “instrumental” in the formation of the Christmas Tree bill and the distribution of funds.

The United Way of Southern Nevada received $1.2 million for “public health, education, and improving economic mobility.”

Assemblyman C.H. Miller (AD-7) also announced he was dropping out of his re-election campaign after it was exposed by the Review-Journal that he failed to disclose that he was hired as the President and CEO of the Urban Chamber of Commerce before he voted to appropriate $100,000 on Chamber’s behalf.

David Colborne of the Nevada Independent did a little digging and found that Assemblywoman Venicia Considine (AD-18) is another Democratic legislator who voted in favor of bills that directed over $4,250,000 to the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada where she works as the director of Development and Community Relations.

Democratic Nevada State Senator Dina Neal (SD-4)  is under an active FBI investigation.

Last May, the Review-Journal reported that Neal  was under investigation after a College of Southern Nevada professor claimed she had pressured him to direct federal money toward businesses that didn’t meet grant requirements, including one owned by her friend.

Later that month, the Review-Journal reported that North Las Vegas city officials met with law enforcement regarding concerns Neal had used campaign funds to pay a $20,000 lien on her home.

Since these scandals surfaced, Senator Neal made her X account private and referred to the allegations as a “smear campaign.” Despite the allegations, Neal saved her seat in the last week’s Democratic primary.

The numerous scandals have caused Governor Lombardo’s affiliated PAC to charge that the Democratic leaders Assemblyman Steve Yeager (AD-9) and Nicole Cannizzaro (AD-6) preside over a “Culture of Corruption.”

To date, both Yeager and Cannizzaro have remained silent in relation to these ethics scandals and the latest, now deleted, smear campaign against Governor Lombardo.

  1. Geeee….. that’s what demoncrats do, lie, attack, demonize etc. And never put a name to their missives.

  2. With citizens united, you won’t get money out. Of politics, unless you get a constitutional amendment. a lot of the Green EV anti-fossil fuel agenda, is legal, but money plays an important part. Al Gore made big money off global warming climate change….

    Or the hospitality industry, clean the room every day, even if the guest doesn’t want it…. Or we will campaign against you, and your re-election with be harder and more expensive.

    Supermajority in Clark County Commission and Assembly, no checks and balances, bad for taxpayers….

  3. He should always beware!` In crunch time, conniving liberals are capable of anything! Like fake accents and fake fire drills and when desperate just good old fashion “slip and fall”. Imagine if 20 liberals suddenly fell on the floor and hurt their backs? Let it be known that there’s an entire smorgasbord of sudden nightmare’s awaiting those with plotting liberals in their midst.
