because they are wiser and more experienced, but children are usually
reluctant to take their parent’s advice until they hear that same
advice from a stranger.
People like to believe what they read in the Las Vegas Tribune, but
they somehow believe that this newspaper is an “anti-government,
radical publication,” which is very far from the truth, yet some
readers indicate they are afraid or at least cautious to believe what
they read in this weekly publication.
For a very long time, the Las Vegas Tribune has been exposing the
modus operandi of Las Vegas campaign consultant and manipulator David
Thomas, and now the daily paper has come forward with their own
article which says almost everything that the Las Vegas Tribune has
been revealing about him all along.
Many who read these articles in this newspaper agree, and in many
cases they have told us, under the condition of anonymity, about their
own experience with David Thomas.
Now that Jane Ann Morrison, perhaps one of the most truthful
journalists on the city’s daily paper, the Review-Journal, has come
forward with a great article on David Thomas, just maybe the Clark
County voters will listen to our newspaper’s advice when it comes to
politics and campaign consultants and managers.
In the February 12 edition this year, the Las Vegas Tribune reported:
“During a confrontation at the Filipino Nurses of Southern Nevada
Yearly Gala at the Gold Coast Hotel and Casino, prominent political
consultant Johnny Jackson was verbally attacked by fellow consultant
Thomas. The incident occurred when Jackson approached Thomas to
welcome him to the event and was rudely ignored by Thomas, the husband
of District Court Judge Nancy Alf, who told Jackson to stay away from
Las Vegas Tribune learned that Judge Bill Kephart had to intervene in
the argument to avoid having the incident escalate. During a segment
on Face the Tribune radio show, Jackson explained that several of
Thomas’ unhappy candidates had been jumping the fence asking Jackson
to run their political campaigns.
Judge Jerry Tao, one of the protégés of U.S. Senator Harry Reid on the
Democratic side, and police union puppet David Roger on the
Republican side, is a client of David Thomas. Everyone who starts to
run against Tao is persuaded not to run in that race or seems to
develop a sudden change of mind after spending money for the filing.
“Judge Jerry Tao is such a ‘good’ judge that during the last election
the attorney that ran against him almost won with less than a two
percent edge without even campaigning, making public appearances or
attending political events or holding fundraisings,” the Las Vegas
Tribune once wrote.
This year, that same attorney filed again to run against Tao, but
later, inexplicably, withdrew from the race after playing musical
chairs with Thomas’ clients. The newspaper learned that one of the
people who approached that attorney asking him not to file to run
against Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez was not Thomas but another sitting
judge who is one of Thomas’ clients.
The Las Vegas Tribune is working on a story about certain judges who
are not allowed to communicate with this newspaper because they have
been ordered by Thomas not to appear on the Face the Tribune radio
show in retaliation for the newspaper continuing to expose Thomas’
urge to control and dominate the judicial races. Among them are judges
from Justice Court, District Court and Family Court. Some of them have
been friends with the Las Vegas Tribune for a very long time and have
even been endorsed by the newspaper in the past.
Their behavior has prompted the Las Vegas Tribune to no longer endorse
candidates running for office because the endorsement process has
become a laughing stock among candidates as well as those who follow
the election process.
In addition, we believe that some unions are trying to gain back some
of the power they once had.
The Las Vegas Tribune has learned that some of the judicial candidates
who hired Thomas as their election consultant were promised the
endorsements of the unions with which he has close relationships.
