Statement on Adam Laxalt’s Shockingly Unethical Actions


by Nevada Democrats

"Adam Laxalt, the most shamelessly partisan Attorney General in Nevada’s history, is now ensnared in a pay-to-play corruption scandal that could derail his campaign for Governor before it even starts."


Las Vegas, NV – Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange released the following statement tonight following a bombshell report that Attorney General and soon-to-be Republican candidate for Governor Adam Laxalt asked Nevada’s chief gaming regulator to intervene in a lawsuit on behalf of his biggest campaign donor, and the tapes were turned over to the FBI:

“Adam Laxalt, the most shamelessly partisan Attorney General in Nevada’s history, is now ensnared in a pay-to-play corruption scandal that could derail his campaign for Governor before it even starts. Laxalt has always been an incompetent “train wreck” attorney with severe judgment issues, but asking Nevada’s chief gaming regulator to intervene in a lawsuit on behalf of his biggest campaign donor is nevertheless shockingly unethical. Adam Laxalt is so blindly ambitious that he has no problem blatantly using the powers of his taxpayer-funded office to help his ultra-wealthy friends deal with a pesky lawsuit. It's hard to imagine a more clear-cut example of misconduct. Nevada families deserve an Attorney General whose first priority is protecting them – not collecting campaign cash from billionaires.”
