Just When You Thought It Couldn't Get Any Worse...
The Gubernator's new press man is the soon-to-be-former flak for Vidler Water, which is the for-profit partner with the Southern Nevada Water Authority in the plot to defoliate East-Central Nevada.
Also, he flakked for juiceman uberlobbyist Harvey Whittemore's project in Reno - the Wingnut Towers, or some such - and the Coalition for Smart Growth in Douglas County, which I'm sure was an honest-to-god bunch of people looking to stop life-destroying out-of-control growth and not a front group for a bunch of soulless developers.
How this fits into an administration led by a governor who was against the Water Grab, then for it, then against, then for it again; and has written odes to the miraculous health qualitities of known-neurotoxin mercury; and opposes heavy handed government regulation that might lead to fewer people dying from routine medical procedures is not immediately clear.
