Violent Nevada Democrat To Be Expelled From State Assembly

Posted by on Mar 27, 2013 at 8:30 am

Apparently some Democrats in Nevada have standards. Granted, these people have foisted Dingy Harry upon the land, but they’ll draw a line at repeated violence.

A Nevada politician is set to become the first assemblyman to be expelled from the state’s legislature in 150 years after being arrested for violent disturbances twice in two months.

Steven Brooks’s ‘increasingly erratic’ behaviour began in January when he was arrested after allegedly making threats toward colleagues. According to police he had a gun in his car and dozens of rounds of ammunition.

Wait, what? A gun-toting Democrat? We thought only white Republicans were bitterly clinging to their guns?

He was arrested a second time  in February after a domestic disturbance at his estranged wife’s home in which police say he threw punches and tried to grab a officer’s gun.

Now a bipartisan Nevada legislative panel has recommended his expulsion after voting 6-1 in favour.

The expulsion requires a two-thirds majority vote of the Assembly, though Assembly Majority Leader William Horne gave no indication when the full chamber might take up the matter.

The seven-member panel was tasked with recommending what action should be taken against Brooks.

Since January, the 41-year-old Democrat from North Las Vegas has been arrested twice, hospitalized for a mental evaluation and placed on leave from the Legislature.

Judging by his complexion, can racism complaints be far behind? Brooks was also recently fired from a Las Vegas city job and tried to buy a bullet-proof vest and night-vision goggles. Sounds like a really stable guy.

    Was there any mention as to whether this shining example of the democratdom lost the weapons as a result of his frolics? Ya know……for the children and all?

    Was his estranged wife advised to fire a shotgun? That’s a BFD.

    His successor, if he is removed, will be appointed by the 7 member Clark County Commission, which has no Republican members.

    There’s no way they would remove him if he could be replaced by a Republican.
