Transparency Review (9/5-9/9)

  • Congresswoman Shelley Berkley's Senate campaign responded to the New York Times story questioning her husband's involvement in her health care legislation. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Berkley's campaign said the Times "ignored crucial facts" and defended Berkley's "long history of fighting for better healthcare for patients."
  • Nevada Senator Dean Heller continues calling for transparency from the debt-cutting super committee saying: "We cannot allow this committee to dissolve into the super-secret committee."
  • Disgruntled North Las Vegas residents began signing a petition to recall Mayor Sherri Buck. Residents have 90 days to obtain 2,466 signatures, and the signatures must come from residents who voted in the 2009 mayoral election, when Buck was elected.
  • TransparentNevada recently added 2010 House disbursement data from Nevada's congressional delegation as well as payroll data from West Wendover. Keep visiting http://transparentnevada.com/ or follow TransparentNevada @TransparentNV on Twitter for the latest updates.
