Campaign Violations Committed by Clark County Democratic Party, led by Governor Sisolak's Appointee, Commissioner Michael Naft

 

We have indisputable evidence that Clark County Democratic Party, led by Governor Sisolak's appointee, Commissioner Michael Naft have been using his position on the Clark County Commission to further their political ambitions.  They have been hosting re-election/campaign events on government property and using government resources which are paid for by taxpayers to promote the Democratic Party and Mr. Naft.

Clark County Democrats and Mr. Naft advertises these events on his election Campaign website and then shows photographs of the events afterwards, also on his campaign website.

Concerned observers for Election Fraud and Campaign Violations brought these complaints to our attention. When they contacted some of these public entities, including the Henderson Public Library and Clark County Parks and Recreations managers, they were told that management never authorized Clark County Democrats and Mr. Naft to hold political events at their properties. They were blindsided, and the events were unauthorized.

While the violations are numerous, here are examples of the most egregious violations:

  • After supporting a ban on American flags used by “peaceful protesters”, Naft took a great deal of criticism for the ban and was forced to address the matter. He enlisted an Assistant Sheriff from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) to appear in uniform and explain that the ordinance was not to “ban” the American flag, but was merely meant to ban the width of the poles that the flag might have been mounted on. This video, paid for by the citizens and taxpayers of Clark County was placed on Naft’s political website along with a link to his re-election campaign.

     

  • On October 1st, 2020, the anniversary of the horrific mass shooting that happened on Oct 1st, 2017, Naft hosted an event at the newly built Allegiant Stadium to honor Police and First Responders. This event was advertised on his campaign website, and enlisted uniformed Police Officers to attend. It was to be a “flag raising” event to promote the new stadium, despite the fact that at the time, crowd gatherings were prohibited and the County paid for the event and paid the salaries of those officers in attendance.

     

  • On October 10, 2020, Naft hosted an event paid for by the taxpayers of Clark County and using county vehicles and supplies paid for by the county at the Anthem Center in the City of Henderson. The event was advertised on his campaign website as providing a variety of services; recycling of unwanted electronics, free flu shots, free document shredding and personal grooming supply give a ways. Those in attendance received Naft campaign literature and he spoke regarding his being up for reelection.

     

  • On September 12, 2020, hosted an event at the Windmill Library in Spring Valley. This event was advertised on his campaign website, despite being paid for by the taxpayers of Clark County and using a government building, county vehicles and supplies purchased by Clark County. The event was advertised on his campaign website as providing a variety of services; recycling of unwanted electronics, free flu shots, free document shredding and personal grooming supply give a ways. Those in attendance received Naft campaign literature and he spoke regarding his being up for reelection.

     

  • Naft hosted an event at the Helen Meyer Community Center, in Spring Valley on October 23rd, 2020. This event was to a “Drive in” movie night paid for by the taxpayers of Clark County and using a government building and supplies and equipment paid for or rented by Clark County. The event was advertised on his campaign website and was to be a “meet the candidate” event. When Clark County Parks and Recreation officials were notified of the political nature of the event, the meet and greet portion was cancelled the night of the event.

 

Each of these events, paid for by the taxpayers of Clark County, are political in nature and are a violation of the State of Nevada as NRS 281A.520- Prohibits a public official from requesting or otherwise causing a government entity to incur an expense or expenditure in support of himself as a candidate.

As a public official under NRS 281A.160, Naft is bound by the rules set forth in NRS 281A. His use of uniformed personnel at these events in wholly inappropriate as they are salaried employees of Clark County and as a commissioner, Mr. Naft controls their Collective Bargaining agreements and could potentially impact their income.

We request that Clark County Democratic Party be fined for the amount equal to at least the cost to Clark County Taxpayers and that Mr. Naft resign his position as the Clark County Commissioner.

Nobody is above the law, even the Clark County Democratic Party, and even Governor Sisolak's Appointee, Mr. Naft.
