On Day Two of Speaker-of-the-Weak John Hambrick’s tax-hiking reign, Republican Assembly Caucus Policy Director Geoff Lawrence – a solid fiscal conservative and economist who went to the caucus from the Nevada Policy Research Institute when Assemblyman Ira Hansen was initially elected Speaker-designee in November – has “resigned.”
Does anyone with an IQ above room temperature believe Lawrence actually quit a job he was made for rather than being forced out, against his will, by Hambrick?
Lawrence is just the latest conservative Hambrick has double-crossed and stabbed in the back, all in pursuit of a greased slide for Gov. Brian “America’s Worst Governor” Sandoval’s (R&R-Advertising) billion-point-three dollar tax hike.
Recall that Hambrick first sacked conservative Tax Pledge signer Assemblywoman Michele Fiore as chair of the Taxation Committee, followed immediately by also removing from the committee conservative Tax Pledge signers Assemblywoman Victoria Seaman and Assemblyman Brent Jones.
In Hambrick-world, conservatives need not apply.
Let the Recall Hambrick effort proceed!
