Gov. Brian Sandoval should sue for slander.
During an editorial board meeting with the Reno Gazette-Journal, Harry Reid was bouncing off the walls like a rhetorical cue ball — calling Joe Heck the most fraudulent person he has seen in 50 years in politics, accusing the mother of a Benghazi victim of being crazy and praising Sandoval.
“I wish we had more Republicans like Brian Sandoval, who you haven’t seen rushing to endorse this Republican nominee Donald Trump,” the paper quoted Reid as saying. “But Joe Heck, whoa, man, he loves this guy. He campaigns with him and thinks he’s the best. So, I like Brian Sandoval a lot. We need more Republicans like him.”
Sandoval should sue. For Harry Reid to praise anyone with an R after his name is defamation and libel per se.
The paper got a reaction from Heck but failed to give Sandoval a chance for a rejoinder.
“We all know Harry hasn’t been firing on all cylinders over the past couple years and this is just another example of how out of touch he is with Nevadans,” Heck said in a statement to the paper. “His retirement cannot come soon enough so that Nevada can have someone who truly represents them in this seat.”
The best laugh line of the meeting was: “I don’t accept anybody that criticizes me for being partisan, because I’m not. Only when I have to be, which is a lot lately.”
