Republican congressional candidate Mark Amodei was late 25 times in 10 years in paying property taxes on his Storey County mining claim, according to the Reno Gazette-Journal.
Amodei insisted he tried pre-paying the taxes but was denied by the county due to the county's tax collection schedule.
Amodei co-owns the mining property with Judge James Russell, who ruled on the CD-2 special election case prior the case reaching the State Supreme Court and is currently overseeing the state's redistricting hearing.
The largest fine for Amodei's late taxes was only $3.81 a year, but the bigger question is whether Russell should've ruled on the CD-2 special election when Amodei was running for the Congressional seat. It seems like a clear conflict-of-interest for Russell to hear a case in which one of his investment partners has a stake.
