Nevada Republicans can’t explain why they refuse to accept the results of the 2016 election in Senate District 5
Las Vegas, NV – This morning, news broke that failed 2016 candidate Carrie Buck is also behind the baseless and pathetic effort to recall Nevada State Senator Joyce Woodhouse. Republicans – including former Assemblyman Stephen Silberkraus and Senate Minority Leader Michael Roberson – have been completely silent and refused to explain the reasoning behind their recall effort.
“Stephen Silberkraus and Carrie Buck need to immediately explain why they’re so desperate to overthrow the will of voters in Senate District 5 and undo the results of the last election,” said Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy II. “There’s no good reason for trying to steal a Senate seat you just lost in November, and that’s why no one behind this stupid political stunt has been able to justify it to the press or the public. As more facts emerge about this secret scheme, it’s obvious Republicans are just trying to further the political ambitions of a few failed candidates at the expense of Nevada voters and taxpayers.”
Background: The recall effort is being led by sore loser and failed Assemblyman Stephen Silberkraus, who lost re-election in 2016 after it was revealed that he had appeared in a sexual fetish film where women were kidnapped, degraded and forced to live in kennels.
