Las Vegas, NV - Evil Boris Badenov (AKA Dave Kallas) Foiled Again By Dudley Do Right (AKA Las Vegas Chamber)


"Rusty McAllister, president of the Professional Firefighters of Nevada, said labor leaders were warned before the session started to focus on policy issues because there was no money to fight over.

'They didn't have any options,' he said of Democratic leadership. 'They did what they had to do.'

McAllister and David Kallas, a Las Vegas Metro Police detective and director of government affairs for the Las Vegas Police Protective Association, said they were disappointed to see the process so dominated by the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce. The chamber came to the Legislature with a list of demands, including reductions in public employee retirement and health benefits, in exchange for its support for a tax increase."
