Controversies

Residency challenge

On October 2, 2012, C. Kelly Hurst filed a criminal complaint in District Court alleging that Martin does not live in the district, and therefore is not only ineligible, but committed a gross misdemeanor through false filing. Martin keeps a condominium in District 9, but also a house in Assembly District 2, which he says is an office. He replied that Martin's complaint was a distraction and a privacy violation. Hurst later called on Martin to suspend his campaign in respect for constituents' wishes for "integrity."[6] As of October 19, the matter was under court review.[7]

On November 5, 2012, the eve of the election, Judge Rob Bare ruled Martin ineligible, citing video evidence and Martin's partner's residency outside of the district. Martin remained on the ballot, and originally planned to appeal.[8]

A month after the judge's decision, Hurst told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he would drop any further challenges to Martin's residency, citing an estimated cost of $50,000 and the fact that the Assembly -- which at the time was controlled by the Democrats, 27-15 -- is constitutionally responsible for judging the qualifications of its members.[9]

Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick (D) told the Review-Journal in June 2013 that she did not see Martin's residency as "being an issue" in a 2014 re-election bid. In the 2013 session, Martin voted for a unsuccessful bipartisan bill that would have changed the definition of a residence to "the place where [a candidate] actually, physically and corporeally" lives, rather than where he or she is "legally domiciled and maintains permanent habitation."[10]
