CARSON CITY — Yes, embattled Assemblyman Steven Brooks — whose mental health has been questioned in recent weeks — gave critics more ammo today, by paying me a compliment.
“Mr. Sebelius,” Brooks said on a nearly deserted Assembly floor when he saw me approaching. “The only man with integrity around here.”
Of course, he said that in the legislative building, so that bar isn’t exactly high.
Here’s a video of the exchange, shot by intrepid master senior photographer Alex Brauer of 8NewsNow’s I-Team:
Just before that, Brooks told me that I was a “good man.” But that only served to confuse me, since this morning, he spoke with my 8NewsNow I-Team colleague Nathan Baca, to say, “I’m a bad man, but bad is good.”
So, if bad is good, and I’m good, then isn’t that bad?
But, on Wednesday, he told Baca that Baca was “a bad man.” So, that must mean that Baca is good?
It’s just so confusing.
