Anywhere but Norftown and you’d take a headline like the above as a mere metaphor. Not here.
Quite literally the city of North Las Vegas has decided to urinate on Clark County and the rest of Vegas Valley. It has started to release it’s lightly treated pee-water from it’s brand-new pee-water recycling plant into a [...]
Putative North Las Vegas Mayor Shari Buck has officially given up on the city she helped to dismantle. The Mayor plans to sell off most city assets, including that unneeded monument to unbridled mayoral hubris, the new city hall. (RJ)

So, just a few short months ago the Mayor of North Las Vegas was assuring us that “we [sic] had done nothing wrong” about the shenanigans used by Nor’Town to fund old cops with money earmarked for new cops.
Maybe the mayor was just working on her Richard Nixon impression–a big hit at Republican fund-raisers [...]

Sounds sorta like the Colbert Report, don’t it?
Lynnette Curtis poked through the latest campaign finance reports to find the usual suspects. Station Casinos is up to its usual bundling scheme of slipping around the $10,000 limit by contributing from each of its properties as if they didn’t all have “Station” in the name.
