PRESS RELEASE : Statement from the Nevada Republican Party on the Destruction of Evidence by Justin Jones
LAS VEGAS, NV – “Another day, another Democrat corruption scandal coming to light. It is unacceptable that Clark County Commissioner Justin Jones deliberately destroyed evidence in an attempt to hide his corrupt actions from the court and from Nevada taxpayers. A federal magistrate found that Jones destroyed evidence in an attempt to cover up unfavorable information and a flow of cronyism between himself and Steve Sisolak.
Our government transparency laws are desperately in need of strengthening, from the local level all the way to the Legislature. Until penalties are codified into law, the least Justin Jones can do is resign. The residents of Commission District F deserve real representation, not someone more concerned with dodging the law than representing their district. We are calling on the Attorney General, the District Attorney of Clark County, and the Nevada State Bar to launch an investigation into Jones’ violation of his professional oaths – he should be disbarred.”
