Former Assemblyman Stephen Silberkraus has filed a petition to recall Nevada Sen. Joyce Woodhouse.

The state legislature may only meet every two years, but politics is an every day thing in Nevada.
 
And the politics last week were a bit nasty.
 
The Nevada Independent – in some stellar work – discovered that recall petitions were filed against three sitting state senators. Why? Various answers have been offered by the people who filed the petitions – who are all Republicans. But do any of those answers add up? And who might be behind this multi-pronged recall?
 
Jon Ralston is the founder and editor of The Nevada Independent news website, and a longtime political writer in Nevada.

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.
