(NN&V Staff) – Today, the UNLV College Republicans launched a new website, aimed at bringing to light their continued requests for answers to integrity issues stemming from the actions of Congresswoman Dina Titus during the 2010 election cycle.
In a televised debate against challenger Dr. Joe Heck last October, Titus broke agreed-upon rules prompting the College Republicans to hand-deliver a letter to UNLV president Neal Smatresk. The letter asked Smatresk to address the matter in the interest of protecting the integrity of UNLV, where Titus is a tenured professor.
“President Smatresk has yet to respond to this incident in an appropriate way,” said Mark Ciavola, newly-elected president of the UNLV College Republicans. “We made it clear this issue would not go away on Election Day, and we continue to urge Mr. Smatresk to do the right thing and acknowledge the lack of integrity shown by one of his most-tenured and highest-profile professors.”
The website, which parodies one of Rep. Dina Titus’ attack websites during the election, goes beyond the debate incident to include other examples of dishonesty by the Congresswoman. Her public support of an attack ad by AFSCME, which was given an “F” for “over the top rhetoric and flat out false accusations” by local political TV host Jon Ralston, is just one of the topics covered. It also mentions an attack ad featuring cop-turned-actor Lt. Randy Sutton, in which privacy laws prevented her opponent from clearing his name.
“Congresswoman Titus brought the issue of integrity into the spotlight, and we are pointing that spotlight directly at her,” concluded Ciavola.
