A judge has ruled in the ongoing lawsuit against the LVMPD for their failure to disclose emails involving Joe Lombardo’s campaign using taxpayer-funded department resources, saying four of the emails must be released and confirming Lombardo used his office for political gain.

“It is undisputed that Sheriff Lombardo engaged in political activity using his government email account,” the ruling stated.

The judge added that Lombardo’s actions “may have violated policies on conflict of interest, political activity, and or/personal use of government e-mail accounts.”

The ruling is just the latest blow to Lombardo’s flailing campaign. Lombardo also faces an ethics complaint about using his uniform in campaign ads, and he’s facing calls to resign as sheriff after he conspired to drive the Las Vegas Sun out of business.

“Joe Lombardo won’t get away with the corruption and abuse of office that have defined his tenure as Clark County Sheriff,” said DGA Senior Communications Advisor Christina Amestoy. “Lombardo’s record of using his office for personal political gain proves he’s unfit to serve as Nevada’s next governor.”

  1. Lombardo is just another in a string of bad candidates forced on us republicans. He is just a “yes” man who will do what he is told by the Florida bosses. He is a whiner about the “sanctity” of the election system, would refuse raises for teachers, doesn’t think schools are underfunded, and let Nevada become a cesspool of crime under is watch, tried to silence a newspaper critical of him and is an election denier. Lombardo is just a political weakling who flip flops on any issue and will do nothing but bring more turmoil and decisiveness to Nevada. Vote no on joe.
