John T. Kennedy
Libertarian John T. Kennedy is running for Nevada attorney general. He is challenging Democratic incumbent Aaron D. Ford, who won the Democratic primary by defeating Stuart MacKie in 2016. Kennedy has a history of being politically active. But he has never served as a state attorney general. Kennedy is not a member of the State Bar of Nevada and is not a licensed attorney in Nevada.
During the Kennedy administration, the FBI was investigating the activities of organized hoodlums. During this period, the FBI and the federal government were working together to catch these criminals. The number of cases against suspected hoodlums rose 350 percent over the preceding year. Moreover, in the last two years, the office was able to convict several mobsters. A recent example of this is the conviction of mobsters Anthony “Tony Ducks” Carello, Carmine Galante, John Ormento, and Frankie “Blinky” Palermo.
The investigation RFK conducted into labor union corruption by the Teamsters led to a clash with his father, Joe Kennedy. Joe Kennedy had secret business connections with hoodlums and became furious when his son decided to investigate organized crime’s influence on labor unions. Joe Kennedy blamed his son for being ignorant of organized crime and tried to get him to drop the investigation. Joe Kennedy feared that if Bobby fought the investigation, he would lose the support of the labor unions for his brother’s presidential bid. He even enlisted Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas to talk Bobby out of it.
Aside from Stuart Mackie, Libertarian candidate John T. Kennedy has not yet completed Ballotpedia’s 2022 Candidate Connection survey. The survey aims to collect voter feedback and inform voters about all the candidates. As of this writing, 694 candidates have completed the survey. That represents 13.5% of all the candidates who filed for the 2021 election.
Sigal Chattah is running for attorney general in Nevada, challenging the incumbent, Stuart Mackie, who was disqualified from running in the Democratic primary because of an insufficient amount of bar experience. She also filed half a dozen lawsuits challenging COVID-19 sanctions and the attorney general’s office regulations.
Both of Chattah’s Democratic opponents have distinct conservative views, and they have both taken the campaign trail to make their cases. Chatta was born in Israel and immigrated to the United States at a young age. She later drew support from Republican activists because of her lawsuits challenging the Sisolak administration on everything from vaccine rollouts to the occupancy limit in churches during a pandemic. She is also known for her incendiary communication style, which has gained her some skepticism and opposition.
The Republican attorney general nominee has filed a lawsuit in Carson City against her Libertarian opponent, John Kennedy, and the Nevada secretary of state’s office. Kennedy is not a licensed Nevada attorney and is not a member of the State Bar of Nevada in good standing. A spokeswoman for the secretary of state’s office said the agency doesn’t comment on pending litigation.
Chattah’s fundraising numbers have not been disclosed by Black, but she has more than $300,000 in cash on hand. This includes donations from Las Vegas area car dealerships and Laborers for Solid State Leadership. Both groups have previously donated to Democratic candidates. Other prominent donors include Rep. Mark Amodei and gubernatorial hopeful Joey Gilbert. Black, meanwhile, has not filed a campaign finance report. The next deadline for filing is April 15.
If you’re considering a run for attorney general, you’ll find many potential opponents. Some are private attorneys, while others are conservative crusaders. In 2020, a new law will require the attorney general to have at least a law degree. Sigal Chattah, for example, campaigned to sue Biden into submission, and she’s been considered a front-runner. But she didn’t respond to a request for comment. And Tisha Black, a Republican candidate, has criticized Chattah as a progressive plant.
Aaron D. Ford, current Attorney General of Nevada, is running for re-election in 2022. Other candidates are Sigal Chattah and John T. Kennedy. In the Democratic primary on June 14, 2022, Ford beat out Stuart Mackie. He defeated Tisha Black, a Republican, in the general election. And in 2018, he defeated Joel Hansen and Wesley Duncan, two Republicans who had been favored for the office.
This year, Nevada’s attorney general election carries significant stakes. The election is a battleground between the state’s Democratic Party and Republicans. If you’re a progressive and want to help keep Nevada blue, this is the time to get involved. And if you’re a progressive Democrat, the attorney general’s race is especially important. To that end, Blue Tent members recommend that you support Ford’s re-election campaign and make it a priority to donate to his campaign.
