Nevada Democrat Official Arrested for Allegedly Murdering Reporter

(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) An official from the Democrat Party that President Joe Biden has been inciting to violence in a series of venomous speeches was arrested Wednesday near Las Vegas, Nevada, and charged with murdering an investigative journalist.

Allegedly in retaliation for unfavorable media coverage he had received prior to his June primary loss, Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles is accused of killing Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Jeff German.

The investigative series on Telles’ office was published before his failed re-election bid, and the reporter had recently filed a public records request for emails and text messages between Telles and three other county officials, according to the Review-Journal.

Law enforcement, including police SWAT officers, took Telles into custody at his home, after investigators had served a search warrant and confiscated vehicles in their criminal case.

“The arrest of Robert Telles is at once an enormous relief and an outrage for the Review-Journal newsroom,” Executive Editor Glenn Cook said. 

“We are relieved Telles is in custody and outraged that a colleague appears to have been killed for reporting on an elected official.”

Germany’s original investigation revealed that the public administrator’s office under Telles was “mired in turmoil and internal dissension over the past two years, with allegations of emotional stress, bullying and favoritism leading to secret videotaping of the boss and a co-worker outside the office.”

The Review-Journal’s coverage included footage that showed Telles and a female co-worker, both married, meeting in the backseat of a car. When the story broke, Telles shrugged off the accusations as “a handful of old-timers” exaggerating the extent of the relationship.

“All my new employees are super-happy and everyone’s productive and doing well,” he told the newspaper. “We’ve almost doubled the productivity in the office.”
