Assemblywoman Sheila Leslie (D-Reno) is the Legislature’s most liberal member. In her years in office, Leslie has promoted one big-government, nanny-state program after another while supporting the never-ending blob-like growth of existing government programs. When it comes to government, Sheila Leslie likes it, she loves it, she wants more of it.
And yet I woke up this morning and read this quote from our resident socialist:
“I think our state motto should be ‘Live and Let Live.’ In Nevada, government should not intrude in our lives.”
What? Where the heck did THAT come from? Clearly illegal space aliens must have taken over her body and mind. I mean, with that quote Sheila Leslie sounds like, well…..
Not to fear, folks. It was a false alarm.
Madame Leslie’s new-found libertarianism was only being applied to a bill which would provide government-sanctioned domestic partnership protections and benefits for gays who are prohibited from marrying in Nevada. She still supports government intrusion into every other aspect of our lives. Just ask her whether privately-owned bars and taverns should have the right to determine for themselves whether or not they allow smoking in their establishments.
What a major league hypocrite.
