(Chuck Muth) – Steven Silberkraus is a disgraced former GOP state assemblyman who stabbed Republicans and taxpayers in the back when he voted for the largest tax hike in Nevada history during the 2015 Legislature.
I’m happy to say I helped defeat him in his 2016 re-election bid. And again when he tried in 2018. And again this year in the June primary when he ran for university regent instead of seeking his old assembly seat.
But the guy’s like herpes. He keeps coming back.
Last week, Clark County Republican Party Chairman David Sajdak appointed Silberkraus as the party’s Interim Vice Chairman to fill a vacancy.
Talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel.
“I think Steven will make a great addition to the team with his Intelligence, knowledge and energy,” Sajdak wrote with a straight face in an email to members.
If tax-hiking, back-stabbing RINO (Republican in Name Only) Steven Silberkraus is the answer, somebody’s asking the wrong question.
This is another in a long and growing list of lousy decisions and poor judgment on behalf of Chairman Sajdak – the worst of which was his decision to issue a press release attacking Las Vegas City Councilwoman Michele Fiore after the party’s county convention back in June, costing her the Mayor Pro Tem position.
And don’t forget: Sajdak SUPPORTS the Democrats’ universal vote-by-mail scheme.
As a former party chairman myself – a totally thankless job, by the way – I try to give party chairs the benefit of the doubt. But this guy is out of control and out of his mind.
However, the real fault lies with the party’s Central Committee members who elected him.
What the hell were you people thinking?
