Nevada lawmaker and taxation committee chair Michele Fiore has once again been removed from leadership positions in the Republican Assembly Caucus.
Assembly Speaker John Hambrick announced the removal Thursday, a day after writing a Facebook post critical of public accusations she made about two Republican consultants.
Fiore came under fire last week after political reporter Jon Ralston reported that more than $1 million in liens had been filed against her in the past decade.
She was briefly removed from leadership but restored hours later.
She responded to questions about the liens in a round of media earlier this week, blaming a dishonest employee and her ex-husband for the tax problems and accusing two consultants of conspiring against her.
Hambrick later defended the consultants and called the comments regrettable and baseless.
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.
