Immediately after Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval’s (R&R-Advertising) announcement that he intended to make the $640 million worth of temporary “sunset” tax hikes permanent, Nevada State Sen. Ben “Blue Dog” Kieckhefer (RINO-Reno) threw his support behind the plan and seconded the emotion.
Which makes him – and sorry, but there’s no delicate way to put this – a liar.
Indeed, in his GOP primary campaign against former conservative state Assemblyman Ty Cobb, Kieckhefer was asked in a televised debate, point blank, if he would support extending the sunsets. Kieckhefer’s no-room-for-misunderstanding reply was…
“No, I will not.”
Then he did.

In the movie classic The Cowboys, the legendary John Wayne told Bruce Dern’s character that he wouldn’t hire him for a cattle drive; not because he’d spent time in jail, but because he didn’t tell the truth about working for a previous employer.
“I can’t stand a liar,” Wayne deadpanned.
If only more voters felt the same way.
