Sisolak uses private security to bar columnist from press event

Going to press events is a normal part of my job. What happened Monday — as I walked to a news conference at which Democratic gubernatorial candidate Steve Sisolak announced his education plan — isn’t.

Sisolak held the event on the third floor of a building owned by Switch. As I got off the elevator, there were two security guards there and a Sisolak campaign staffer. The staffer asked me to sign in and then walked away in a panic when he realized who I was — a conservative columnist.

Sisolak’s communications director, Barb Solish, came out and told me, “There’s no reason for you to be at this press event.”

Really? Since when does a politician think he gets to tell media members when they should and shouldn’t show up for a press event? If your answer is, “But Trump … ” then you should be blasting Sisolak for acting like the left’s worst caricature of Trump. Even Trump hasn’t had security keep CNN out of the White House briefing room.
