Nevada: More on recall/extortion victim Republican Assemblyman Edwards

We got some more details on the extortion issues surrounding Republican Assemblyman Chris Edwards. A Recall Edwards PAC has been founded --- the recall is about his support for Assembly Speaker John Hambrick as well as his refusal to openly oppose business license fee increase from Governor Brian Sandoval.

The extortion issue related to an attempt to pressure Edwards into switching his vote for speaker. Edwards backed Hambrick in the preliminary vote in December by then came under mysterious pressure to switch. The police searched the home of a Las Vegas businessman who applied for a vacant assembly seat but wasn't chosen.
