(Chuck Muth) – The Democrats’ Carson City “favor factory” scandals continue to grow and Nevada State Sen. Dina Neal may just be the “Favor Queen.”
Neal has been under investigation – and apparently continues to be under investigation – for a series of questionable, if not unethical, if not unlawful, actions related to “favors” she did for a “friend.”
A “friend” who she exchanged around 8,000 calls and texts with over the last three years.
A friend who she hired to be a “personal trainer” for her late father.
A friend whose daughter she helped after the daughter’s application for an apartment was denied “due to a prostitution charge.”
A friend who she brought soup to “after his neck surgery.”
Yeah. He’s “just” a friend.
Anyway, one of Neal’s alleged favors was to pressure a professor at the College of Southern Nevada to give her “friend” a $20,000 grant from taxpayer funds.
When asked about a questionable $20K item on her campaign finance report, Neal flew off the handle and “vigorously” declared, “I have never misused my campaign funds.”
Nevertheless, as scrutiny of her actions intensified over the summer, Neal created a “legal defense fund” that will allow donors – including “maxed out” donors – to pay her legal bills.
However, it doesn’t appear Ms. Neal’s “favors” were related to her “official duties” as a state legislator.
As such, late yesterday afternoon I filed a written complaint asking the Nevada Secretary of State to launch an investigation as to whether Neal’s “legal defense fund” is…legal?

There Was a Fly Buzzing Around Sen. Neal’s Office
There was a fly buzzing around outside Sen. Dina Neal’s office in Carson City one day during the session when he happened upon a pile of fresh bear poop (yes, bears have been known to prowl around the capitol grounds).
Due to the fact that it had been hours since he had had his last meal, he flew down and began to eat. He ate and ate.
Finally, he decided he had eaten enough and tried to fly away. But he had eaten too much and could not get off the ground. As he looked around wondering what to do, he spotted a shovel leaning up against the wall in front of Sen. Neal’s office.
He climbed to the top of the handle and jumped off, thinking that once he got airborne he would be able to take flight. Unfortunately, he was wrong. Dropped like a rock and smashed when he hit the ground.
ARE YOU READY FOR THE MORAL OF THE STORY?
Never fly off the handle when you know you’re full of sh*t.

FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“I have a simple proposal: a work-for-welfare state. All able-bodied welfare recipients without young kids pick a door: Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines. Everybody else cleans streets, repairs buildings, fills potholes, picks up roadside trash, guards schools, repairs and dispenses donated clothing, farms to grow food for food banks, etc., etc. while also getting mandated training and job placement supervision. No one but the proven incapacitated gets anything for nothing. Watch the welfare rolls thin.” – Dan Kennedy
