The allegation that Nevada gubernatorial candidate Steve Sisolak bruised his ex-wife is “disturbing,” spokesmen for the Democrat’s opponent and the Republican Governors Association said.
Lori “Dallas” Garland said she was left with a bruised neck from an August 2000 incident with Sisolak after she filed for divorce earlier that year. Garland, who said Sisolak treated her like “a total prisoner” throughout their 13-year marriage, provided The Daily Caller News Foundation with pictures of her bruised neck and a contemporaneous diary entry detailing the incident.
“These are disturbing charges with significant evidence,” the communications director for Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Laxalt, Parker Briden, told TheDCNF. “Domestic violence always deserves to be taken seriously.”
Republican Governors Association communications director Jon Thompson told TheDCNF: “These are disturbing allegations, and if true, proves that Steve Sisolak doesn’t have the temperament to serve as governor. Sisolak owes Nevada voters answers.”
