Our Most Corrupt Governor Ever

Nevada corruption

I always joked about how the State of Nevada was founded on corruption (we were) and we have specialized in it ever since. Seriously.

The joke has now turned a little too real.  Governor Sisolack’s level of corruption makes the corruption we saw with the mob, look like child’s play. At least when the Mob killed you, it was for something you did against them, not just because you happen to live in Nevada and were not a ward of the Nevada State Prison.

Steve Sisolak, “The Crisis Capitalist” – updated

By Nevada Freeman
 
By now, if you haven’t heard the name Steve Sisolak, your isolation has lasted much longer than this week’s quasi-quarantine. Steve Sisolak is an ex-county commissioner, and current Governor of Nevada, who’s past, present and even future lead to questions about integrity, cronyism and flat-out fraud.
 
Clark County (Las Vegas)  was first introduced to Sisolak about 11 years ago, when as a commissioner-elect, Sisolak frivolously sued McCarran airport over safety regulations. When safety restrictions on building heights were imposed, Steve turned to the courts to leech money from the airport. He claimed that the inability to grow his buildings upward, and extra noise and “dust” from the planes would hinder his ability to make a living. This statement echoes today in a similar fashion to Sisolak’s entire shutdown of Nevada with no contingency plan for rent or reimbursement that has hindered the lives of almost every single Nevadan.
 
During Sisolak’s time as a County Commissioner, Nevada was struck by tragedy. On Oct 1st, 2017 the largest single massacre in Las Vegas occurred. 58 lives were lost, and our city was sent into a frenzy. No less than 24 hours later, Steve Sisolak opened a “Go-Fund-Me” account to raise money, intended for the victims of the tragedy.
 
3 years later, Route 91 victims are still questioning where the money went. Sisolak promised that the money would be audited, and a clear-cut presentation would be shown as to where that money went. We see that some of that money made it to a scholarship, and about $12,000 of the $33 million raised was paid out. In 2018, an announcement was made that checks would be stopped. Sisolak’s fund claimed it never intended to directly give money to survivors, and about 30 million dollars of that money is still unaccounted for. No audit was performed and the original website was shut down.
 
Fast forward to the present COVID-19 crisis. Due to this virus, the world economy is in shambles, people are almost completely quarantined and a “diet martial law” is slowly creeping its way into our country. All facets of life are currently heavily monitored or restricted, including; work, travel, and even our constitutional rights. On March 22nd, 2020, Steve Sisolak announced that Jim Murren would be heading the task force embodied with the responsibility of leading the charge on the crisis.
 
Jim Murren and Steve Sisolak, are a match made in heaven; or hell, if you will. Jim Murren was also involved in the Route 91 shooting in various ways. Murren suspiciously sold off 18 million shares just 3 weeks before the Route 91 shooting and counter sued 1,000 of the victims. Just last month, Jim Murren sold over 600,000 shares of MGM stock and stepped down as CEO of MGM. Old habits die hard, and if this is any indication of forewarning or insider trading, it speaks volumes on his stock sales prior to the shooting. Among all these facts, Jim Murren is one of Sisolak’s largest donors, funneling a whopping $20,000 on the books during Sisolak’s 2018 gubernatorial election.
 
As the situation of Covid-19 intensifies, cures and possible treatments are undergoing live experiments. Currently, thousands of New Yorkers are being treated with a mixture of Z-pacs and HCQ, also known as Hydroxychloroquine. Within in days of President Trump touting Hydroxychloroquine, Steve Sisolak restricted use to anyone who wasn’t on a death bed or in serious condition. This is counterproductive behavior, as the results thus far have shown the quicker you attack Covid-19, the better your chances of survival are. Sisolak is currently being coached by Ihsan Azzam, a doctor who is not licensed to practice medicine in the United States.
 
Fast forward a few weeks, and we can see why such a kneejerk from Sisolak occurred. Nevada state prisons are now hoarding HCQ. This is exactly what Sisolak didn’t want for the public, but is totally fine for him while denying people life-saving care. Not only is Sisolak in violation of Nevada’s right to try act, he is also in violation of Roe v Wade and the access to care guarantees it protects.
 
It makes absolute sense as to why Steve Sisolak would choose a non-doctor with absolutely no knowledge of virology, to lead a statewide movement. It has absolutely nothing to do with preventing pathogenic disease or bailing out the little guy during a crisis. It has everything to do with political opportunity. The same political opportunity Sisolak used to leech money from victims, sue our airport, and put his cronies into power alongside his iron throne.
 
We see you Sisolak. We are not fooled. We are not amused. You can contact Sisolak on his Facebook page, twitter @GovSisolak, by email steve@stevesisolak.com, or by phone at (775) 684-5670 to inform him of your opposition to his poor handling of the crisis and appointment of Jim Murren. Sisolak has completely ignored follow-up plans, help for individuals or small businesses, and instead has put a crisis opportunist like himself in charge of the recovery efforts.

  1. Ventura Capitalist

    How did this lying snake get elected?
    Why are we allowing the California Death into Nevada?

  2. Concerned Nevadan

    When will someone investigate the that Sisolak has ownership in multiple marijuana companies while ruling on marijuana??? Anyone left in Nevada that does investigative reporting? The people need to demand his list of investments made off of Clark County millions!!!!! This is the biggest scandal of the state’s history!!!

  3. Just wait, I’m guessing around 6-8yrs after he is out of office, the FBI will indict him on charges of taking handouts from these big casino execs some in which he has very close relationships with. Think about it.

    We closed down in March with 35 COVID cases. The increased numbers and he said he would roll back to original phase if the numbers were high and hospitalizations. We get the letter from the white house giving recommendations and he goes SILENT. Back in March he was always updating the state. Meanwhile every other governor is giving updates every 3 days, SISOLAK SILENT!!

    Then he closes BARS but leaves CASINOS open?? Listen..I’m all about opening the state and not with this propaganda , gonna keep this short but seems odd that he had to be asked about CASINOS…everyone was unclear if that meant bars in the casinos, well they found a loophole. There’s corruption going on..just watch.. It will all come out when nobody cares…..

  4. People tell the truth the monies were all paid out back in May of 2018 with the exception of Outpatient Physically Injured OUTPATIENT of $2,518,294 that was still being determined depending on how many people were in outpatient injuries but these were also paid out . The funds were not a Sisolak run money account but were a combined effort by sheriff Lombardo and overseen by
    the members of the Las Vegas Victims’ Fund Committee:

    Barbara Molasky – Outreach Director, Core Academy
    Barry Lieberman – Chief Development Officer, South Point
    Bill Noonan – SVP Industry and Government Affairs, Boyd Gaming
    Dana Lee, VP – Familee Properties
    Deacon Tom Roberts – President and CEO, Catholic Charities
    Allison Netski – Chair of Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Health, UNLV
    Ikram U. Khan. M.D. – Quality Care Consultants
    Elynne Greene – Victim Advocate Manager, LVMPD
    Hunter Campbell – EVP and Chief Legal Officer, UFC
    Jackson Wong – Accounting Manager, LVMPD
    Kristin Tyler – Partner at Garman, Turner, Gordon
    Magann Jordan – Victim/Witness Program Administrator, Clark County DA Office
    Peter Guzman – President and CEO, Latin Chamber of Commerce
    Punam Mathur – Executive Director, Elaine Wynn Foundation
    Scott Nielson – President, Neilson Consulting, LLC
    Yolanda King – County Manager, Clark County
    Steven Bautista – Zappos

    the website is dead now as the monies are all paid up and no new donations have been accepted for over two years… You can see the monies paid using the wayback machine here is the info copy and paste into any web browser.

  5. Just watching his speeches on COVID-19 was enough to turn my stomach. He had to read the entire speech and pounding on the podium like a little Hitler. He doesn’t care about Nevadans and will break the weak. Unemployment checks that he promised everyone has not been fulfilled. My granddaughter filed April 1 after the preschool that she taught at had to let her go because they just didn’t have enough children to keep her on. She received the card with a $0 balance about 2 weeks ago. No monies have been put on it. She has refiled, but still nothing. How does he expect people to provide for their families?

  6. He was corrupt when he was commissioner for Clark County. When my husband worked for Clark County, he did things that he wasn’t supposed to do. And when my husband got interviewed by a reporter and gave all the details what Sisolak did, the reporter had to run it through their attorneys and they decided NOT to run the story. People are scared to talk because of big politicians run the state of Nevada. They will hide anything bad that comes out against them.

  7. Valerie Melene Brown,
    Your link you are referring to is NOT the Go Fund me money that Sissylack set up. That is Federal money.

  8. Thank you for that. Someone needed to finally say out loud what I think a lot of us have been feeling lately. The gov has been running the state like it was his kingdom. It needs to stop and he needs to be out of office and maybe in jail!

  9. Left-Wing nut job is what He is. Socialist that will keep us locked up, I will not comply. he is really way over his head being a yes man for Bloomberg, and Soris.

  10. You people better start waking up…. Political leaders like this are trying to lead America into control of every single person alive. It’s not a joke. Stop voting for Democrats and life long politicians. Wake up and research what is really going on. This Governor is a puppet.

  11. Very simple. he paid for it and won it. The State legislator is mostly state employees and union appointees. The republican party hasnt had a strong candidate in years.

  12. How did this happen? How did a person of Gov. Sisolak’s integrity (or lack of it) get voted into office? This man cannot make a decision! He depends on his cronies to do it for him. He doesn’t even sound intelligent when he speaks; and he has to READ all of the speeches that others prepare for him. Where is the compassion for those people that have no income since Covid-19 appeared? Oh, yes, I see that they are jailed! This craziness has to stop. We need a decent, respectable human as Nevada’s Governor. And, thank you Mr. Anthony for bringing all of these facts to the forefront.

  13. How come no one is asking about the millions in cannabis tax revenue that was supposed to be for the schools and kids, but Instead went into a supposed “rainy day fund” I call BS

  14. What’s your source on the gofundme only paying $12million out of $33million?

  15. SovereignAmerican

    If the pro hookers ever ratted this SOB out, he’d be recalled in a heart beat.

  16. I Love This Article, Please Please Please write more about this topic. All I hear is how horrible Mayor Goodman is, because she is pressuring the Govenor to let her city start opening. Please cover this amazing Phase 0 to Phase 1 road to recovery.
    I keep watching these press conferences same thing every time! I tell my friends that don’t live in Vegas that’s there is more to this closure than a virus.

  17. Charlie McKnight

    Thank you Mark. I was unaware of the unaccounted for Go-Fund me account.

  18. Valerie Melene Brown

    This article might clear up the “Case of the missing GO Fund me”. Its at a FEDERAL LEVEL. https://news3lv.com/news/local/senators-feds-release-funding-for-one-october-survivors-after-delay-las-vegas

  19. You forgot the millions he wasted investigating the fire department on sick leave that lead to nothing but a huge waste of tax dollars. Yet the fire unions sold their souls to him after because they wNted to be on the winning team…. the man will say anything to get ahead and uses humans as a ladder to get to the top.. sickening…

  20. Um… that would be shares of MGM Stock. the conspiracy theorists all claim that the CEO of MGM was in on the shooting and planned to make big bucks shorting the MGM stock. So he sold a ton of it off while the price was high knowing it was going to tumble after the attack. In reality, selling large blocks of vested stock is almost an annual thing with the major CEO’s of the world.

  21. With all of these facts being brought to light over our governor,I am proud to say that I did not vote for the son of a bitch therefore I have the ability and right to complain about him. I hope the people that voted them in our happy with themselves for not looking at the entire picture. He hates the state in about it and it’s obvious that he does I’m from a real area and he could give two shits about us up here. The gold that our counties bring into the state supply him with many luxuries. It makes me sick that he is treating everybody like dogs. I don’t see him not taking a paycheck like a prestigious and wonderful president

  22. You and I need to Talk!! Binion tales and the Dirt!

  23. “Murren suspiciously sold off 18 million shares just 3 weeks before the Route 91 shooting . . . ”

    18 million shares of WHAT??

  24. Little stevie has created a wave of panic and poverty that has and will continue to kill more Nevadans than COVID-19 ever will.

  25. If Ben Binion was still alive this would not be happening in Vegas — He would have given this Governor Sislack a one way ride to Jordan Mt ( to his ranch) and the problem would have been solved — I know – i worked for the Binons!!

  26. Thank you Mark! How ya doing?
