Issues

Expenditure disclosure

In February 2012, Las Vegas Sun reporter Anjeanette Damon wrote a series of stories detailing the failure by several Democratic legislators to disclose how they spent portions of their campaign money to help pay for expenditures. Damon's first story described how three Assembly Democrats -- Debbie Smith, David Bobzien, and Lucy Flores -- failed to report the expenditure of campaign funds used to pay for rent and living expenses during legislative sessions. The legislators were instructed by the Assembly Democrats' lawyer that they did not have to report spending on expenses related to their public office.[1][2][3]

After Damon's initial report, Assembly Democrats Marcus Conklin, Richard Daly, Peggy Pierce, and Marilyn Dondero-Loop came forward to admit that they had also failed to report expenses after getting the same legal advice. The six lawmakers filed new expense reports that detailed nearly $45,000 in campaign funds that were spent on living expenses such as rent, electronics, house cleaning and supplies, groceries, lunches, and dinners. At the time, Nevada legislators were paid a $736/month housing allowance during a legislative session if they lived more than 50 miles from Carson City. In addition, all legislatures received $154 per diem during a legislative session.[1][2][3]

Martin Dean Dupalo, president of the Nevada Center for Public Ethics, wrote an op-ed piece in the Las Vegas Sun about the failed disclosures. He described the situation as "a purposeful act of withholding mandated public information that was uncovered by a journalist—not reported as part of a broader discussion between legislators and the executive branch, or much less the public."[1][2][3]

Campaign themes

2012

Daly's website highlighted campaign themes including creating jobs through public works and "restructuring" Nevada's economic development system; education funding and reform; diversification of the state's economy and "government accountability and efficiency."[4]

Redistricting

Due to redistricting, many Nevada districts saw dramatic shifts in their boundary lines. As a result, Daly's District 31 moved from a complacent 16-point Democratic voter registration advantage to a 4-point lead towards Republicans. Because of the new Republican voter registration advantage in District 31, Republicans planned to aggressively target the district in 2012.[12]

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Nevada

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Nevada scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
