(Kishner Campaign) – Joanna Kishner remains the only candidate running for Judicial office in Department 31 with an impeccable record, despite Mr. Dabney’s unfair and improper attempts to ruin it.
His claims, which resulted in an unjust Political Censure that was found to be Unconstitutional by a federal court yesterday, demonstrate that her TRUTHFUL Statements Regarding what can be perceived as Mr. Dabney’s Lack of Judgment were a proper exercise of Constitutional free speech.
Kishner sued the Committee on Judicial Ethics for violating her First and Fourteenth Amendment Rights in Response to her Opponent’s Politically Motivated Complaint. The Committee has been ordered to rescind the censure immediately, remove it from their website and notify all recipients to whom it was published or emailed that it has been ordered rescinded and that it is Unconstitutional.
Given the gravity of the issue, the conduct and the irreparable harm that Ms. Kishner has suffered due to these politically motivated actions, the Court stated that the Preliminary Injunction will take immediate effect and ordered that the Committee must attach a copy of its ruling to all individuals it notifies of the rescission and must publish the Court’s opinion on its website.
Mr. Dabney, who was present in the Courtroom when the ruling was made, should now immediately cease his improper advertisements, robo-calls and other attempts to improperly sway voters with false information about Ms. Kishner.
Ms. Kishner has consistently taken the high road in this campaign, refusing to engage in the mudslinging and half truths and is hopeful that Mr. Dabney will stop his unfounded claims and negative campaigning. His conduct brought up in the Face to Face episode, aired on September 13, as well as his conduct in this campaign is not what many would hope a judicial candidate would engage in.
Ronni Council, Joanna Kishner’s campaign manager, added, “I am extremely disappointed that in a time where Nevadans need elected officials with integrity more than ever, a candidate running for judicial office would spread negative information to voters and file a politically motivated complaint simply to tarnish Ms. Kishner’s impeccable record. I am glad that Justice was served by the federal court.”
