Nevada: judge proposes committees, not judicial candidates, raise campaign money

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports: The Nevada Supreme Court has set a public hearing for Dec. 5 in the capital to consider a proposal by Washoe County District Judge Brent Adams to put a buffer between judges and judicial candidates and the business of raising money for their political campaigns.

Adams in July filed with the state Supreme Court a proposal to amend the Nevada Code of Judicial Conduct to prohibit the personal solicitation and acceptance of campaign contributions by judges and judicial candidates. Instead, judges and candidates would use committees to perform the task of raising and collecting money for campaigns.

The proposal is verbatim language from the Model Judicial Code of the American Bar Association passed in 1990. -- reviewjournal.com -- News - State Supreme Court sets hearing on judicial fundraising
