American Bridge Statement on Adam Laxalt’s Corrupt Actions

Following the Nevada Independent’s report that Adam Laxalt used his office to cut a deal between the Gaming Board Commission and his largest campaign donor, American Bridge President Jessica Mackler made the following statement:

“It is totally out of bounds for Adam Laxalt to use his political influence and intervene in a lawsuit that favors his biggest donor, Sheldon Adelson–that alone should disqualify him from running for governor. He proved he’s a corrupt politician willing to do anything for his billionaire donors instead of doing his job to protect Nevada families and he doesn’t deserve a second chance at statewide office.”
