Gun-Toting, Bundy-Defending Nevada GOPer Loses Congressional Race

Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R), who is known for her fervent advocacy for gun rights and distrust of federal government agencies, lost her bid to join the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday.

Fiore came in a distant third place with 18 percent of the vote in the state's 3rd Congressional district.

The outspoken Nevada Republican drew national media attention earlier this year for her role in brokering the standoff between federal agents and self-styled militia members occupying a wildlife refuge in remote northeastern Oregon. Fiore said at the time that one of the occupiers who was killed in a shootout with federal law enforcement, LaVoy Finicum, was “murdered with his hands up,” even though authorities said that Finicum was shot when he reached inside his jacket toward his weapon.

Both during the Malheur Wildlife Refuge occupation and during the armed standoff against the Bureau of Land Management at Cliven Bundy’s ranch in 2014, Fiore emerged as one of the most prominent defenders of the Bundy family, whom she called “patriots.” ...............

Hopefully some gun humping asshole will inform us that the guns are not AR-15 but other models.

Albeit, not everyone has an AR-15.

24. Yeah! Michele helped plan the Oregon militia conquest of an unmanned refuge but

in her incompetence, she forgot dildos and snacks.

She lost this primary because the voters recognized that she is not a forward thinker.

23. It's still scary to think that 18% of that district's Republicans thinks she's alright!

But it is encouraging that 82% are not interested in Sara Palin wannabe's...

25. Either that, or that's how many don't think.

Just being on the ballot gets you a percentage of votes by those who know nothing about the down ticket candidates.

28. Tell me if I am being stupid

So my job requires that a couple of times a year I take photos with people I do not know that well but are associated in a professional manner. You know, people coming up and a photographer taking a photo of each one. Would really like to expound but cannot.

Look how they are 'holding' her. Hell, I do not squeeze my wife of 30 years in such a possessive way in public.

About half of the people a get photographed with are female and I pose with them just like the men.

Am I being crazy?
