Mom was right: Cheaters never prosper

LAS VEGAS — A Nevada asphalt contractor who is running under the Tea Party of Nevada banner to unseat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has been hit with felony theft and bad check charges in Las Vegas.This comes one day after Scott Ashjian was attacked by the Tea Party Express, who labeled him a “fraud” and said he was not affiliated with the national movement.Court documents filed Friday show Ashjian is accused of bouncing a $5,000 business check last year.Other tea party activists have been distancing themselves from Ashjian. A lawsuit is challenging his candidacy, and an ad targeting Ashjian has been sponsored by the Tea Party Express, one of the most visible factions of the national tea party movement.Public documents show Ashjian also faces foreclosure on home loans totaling almost $1 million, owes $200,000 to the IRS and faces several city nuisance actions and liens.Ashjian hasn’t responded to messages seeking comment.

Ashijan’s made a $6000 restitution payment and all charges have apparently been dropped. But this guy has no impact and will have none, on this race. If Reid thought that Ashijan would help his own campaign (by splitting the vote), he’s sadly mistaken.  All Reid has going for his campaign is massive war chest and no competition from the democrats. He has 56% of Nevadans who disapprove of him. All that money and negative ads will likely cause his negative numbers to go up, not down.

This is a race that I think is already done. Reid’s out and a new Majority Leader is on the way in. That alone is cause for celebration. Any idea who is replacement might be?

    Are there any conservatives running against Dingy Harry ?

      None that I think the Tea Party would really like. But I think Lowden is the best choice of all of them. I don’t know enough about Tarkanian. And I do know about Sharon Angle, she’s not a good choice and she’s not even a consideration, really.

      I’m not really sure what this Ashijan’s story is. He’s either a Reid plant or he’s just so ambitious (and supid) that he tried to use the Tea Party name to further his own career. But the Tea Party has totally disavowed him.

      I don’t know how good Lowden will be (if she’s elected) but I can’t imagine that any one of them are as corrupt or as left as Reid is.
