Hold Dennis Nolan Accountable!

Incumbent State Senator Dennis Nolan has been caught on tape allegedly offering to bribe the parents of a rape victim in an effort to protect the man who was convicted in the case:

A Las Vegas woman said Thursday that state Sen. Dennis Nolan showed signs of "complete insanity" by offering her money if she would tell the truth about a rape involving her ex-husband and sister. (…)

In the message, he talks about making it "very financially beneficial" if Lawes would tell the truth about the 2008 court case in which her then-husband, Gordon Lawes, now 29, was convicted of raping her then 16-year-old sister. Gordon Lawes received a prison sentence of at least 10 years.

Nolan left the message himself on the Lewes family’s answering machine. And, so there’s no doubt about the content and context of that message, you can listen for yourself below:

Dennis Nolan has disgraced his office, his state, and everyone who has ever been personally affected by domestic violence or sexual assault. I call on him to resign from office immediately.
