A lawmaker who has been arrested twice in two months, hospitalized for a mental evaluation and accused of threatening to harm a Democratic Party leader could this week become the first person in Nevada history to be kicked out of the Legislature.

A select committee plans to convene Tuesday evening to recommend whether Assemblyman Steven Brooks, D-Las Vegas, should be allowed to return to his seat in the Legislature, be expelled, censured or otherwise reprimanded.

Democrats harming Democrats... At least they are not going after Conservatives.

Probably should just throw the person in jail [probably needs to be charged with crimes].

This guy could be thrown in jail. From the article:

hen he was arrested again Feb. 10 following a domestic disturbance involving his estranged wife. Las Vegas police alleged that Brooks threw punches and grabbed for an officer's gun. Clark County prosecutors charged him with one felony and three lesser charges which, if he is convicted, could subject him to fines up to $10,000 and as much as six years in jail.

I don’t see the problem. He was just expressing himself.

Mental instability is a requirement to be a Democrat politician.

The talk in Nevada is that there's two onerous anti-gun bills in the Nevada Assembly right now (mixed in with about seven Pro-RKBA bills) at the same time a Democratic assemblyman is going around violently threatening to kill people -- the State Assembly leader, no less -- and getting denied a firearms purchase transaction at the NICS check.

Nevada gunners are saying "Hey, Assembly Democrats. The existing background check system is working: A lunatic Democrat assemblyman who threatened to kill the top Assembly Democrat legislator was denied a firearms purchase at the NICS check. Aren't you supposed to feel all warm and safe now? Oh, what's that? You went out and bought a gun to defend yourself from him? Interesting..."

Damn! If that works in NV, then maybe it will work to expel Nancy Pelosi from the US House of Representatives!

Sounds more like he’s mentally ill. He should therefore be removed from office and undergo treatment. If he recovers from this, he should be free to run for office again.
