ICYMI: Adam Laxalt Feeling the Heat Over False Accusations of Election Fraud

Las Vegas Sun Editorial on GOP Push for Arizona-Style Election Audit in Nevada: “Nevadans deserve to know where Laxalt stands.”

Failed gubernatorial candidate Adam Laxalt is facing renewed scrutiny for his efforts to overturn the 2020 election on behalf of Donald Trump. Laxalt led Trump’s efforts to overturn Nevada’s 2020 election as he “helped orchestrate a slew of failed lawsuits meant to stop the ballot tally in the Silver State”, and now he is being called out for his efforts by the Las Vegas Sun Editorial Board. As the editorial notes, Laxalt has been silent on the NV GOP’s recent efforts to undermine faith in Nevada’s elections, despite his efforts to cast doubt on its legitimacy last fall. 

The Las Vegas Sun Editorial Board on Laxalt’s silence on auditing the 2020 election in Nevada: 

“Mr. Laxalt, where are you on this? On which side of the GOP debate between crazy and sane do you fall? Laxalt has been quiet after crowing early on about fraud and getting laughed out of the courts as former President Donald Trump’s Nevada point man on his junk legal campaign to subvert the election. Nevadans deserve to know where Laxalt stands in this.”

Following his own failed legal crusades to reverse the 2020 election results in Nevada, Laxalt has continued to flirt with running for political office while ducking questions as his allies run down false election conspiracy rabbit holes.
