What's missing?

Any mention that Jaime Herrera will not be there.

The majority of those going to this function will have no idea that Jaime will be missing one of her actual, far-too-infrequent opportunities to make an appearance here.

Why is that?

After my post of a few days ago, calls were made to several people by Jaime's district director, Ryan Hart.

Ryan, former Clark County GOP Chair, is, perhaps, best known for violating state GOP bylaws by endorsing Herrera early in the primary.

His subsequent hiring as a $60,000 a year district director was, of course, sheer coincidence, I'm sure, and not to be confused with any kind of quid-pro-quot.  Paying Ryan to violate state party bylaws would be as unethical as Jaime endorsing Marc Boldt after the local party kicked him out for his solid democrat positions... and she'd never do anything "unethical," would she?

The content of the calls were apparently done to counteract my allegation that Jaime would be attending this fund raiser, despite having an infant in neo-natal intensive care as a part of her sympathy tour... and in response to the democratian's slavish and bizarre efforts to write about Herrera like she was paying them on a per-word basis.(In the interests of full-disclosure, my blog wasn't mentioned in these calls, because, after all, this IS the blog that NOBODY reads... but everyone gets upset about.)

These calls, then, were arguably campaign-related.  One quick question: why is Herrera using congressional staff for her campaign-related purposes?  That's not exactly kosher...

Is it?
