Earlier this month, Nevada’s GOP Senator Dean Heller went into the TV studio at NBC News 3 here in Las Vegas. Sitting next to Senator Harry Reid, Heller was asked what he thought about Cliven Bundy’s militia – a group Reid had described as "domestic terrorists."
"What Senator Reid may call domestic terrorists, I call patriots," Heller responded.
Shortly after he called Bundy’s militia patriots, Heller left News 3 in a hurry to get to the airport, according to his staff. And that would be the end of the story, except that Heller’s staff left some papers in the studio – and to tell us what these papers reveal is Jon Ralston of Ralston Reports.
You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
