As Birthday Presents Go, This One Takes the Cake!

As Birthday Presents Go, This One Takes the Cake!

(Sigal Chattah) – Today’s the 47th anniversary of the day I came kicking and screaming into this world.

And what a birthday present I got this morning when I read that Liberty Watch Magazine – “The Gold Standard of Conservatism” – had endorsed me in the Republican primary for the Nevada attorney general’s race!

In case you’re not a subscriber, here’s what LWM wrote…


This one’s a no-brainer.  When Gov. Steve Sisolak shut the state down in March 2020, Sigal Chattah, as a private attorney, began suing his administration and challenging the constitutionality of a number of its “emergency” declarations.

She and her co-counsel in the suits, Joey Gilbert (candidate for governor), successfully forced Sisolak and the current Attorney General, Democrat Aaron Ford, to fully reopen Nevada’s churches ten days before Christmas that year.

She then successfully forced Sisolak to administer the limited number of early COVID vaccines in 2021 to high-risk populations before young, healthy government workers, and sued the Clark County school district over its mask mandate for students.

Sigal is also representing, pro bono (free), Repair the Vote PAC, an organization being sued by Democrats who are trying to block a pair of election security ballot initiatives.

The Republican establishment recruited in February a last-minute, moderate Republican primary opponent, Tisha Black, who they can control.

Black got crushed in her race for county commissioner in 2018, and then dropped off the radar screen politically, devoting her time and attention instead to legal matters related to her family’s marijuana dispensary business. 

Over the years, she’s also donated heavily to Democrats such as Harry Reid, Catherine Cortez Masto and even Gov. Sisolak.

Sigal is an experienced constitutional conservative who has signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge promising to oppose any and all efforts to increase taxes.  And that’s important when you consider the fact that AG Ford unsuccessfully went to court to DEFEND a pair of tax hikes passed by Democrats without the required 2/3 super-majority.

Black has refused to sign the Tax Pledge and is only now speaking up on important issues – but not actually doing anything about them – out of pure political opportunism and in a vendetta against a true constitutional conservative and fighter.

This one’s a no-brainer.  Liberty Watch endorses Sigal Chattah for Attorney General.

What a way to start a birthday!  Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

But this race is far from over.

The movers and shakers and political king-makers in the Republican Establishment, along with a number of deep-pocketed Sisolak mega-donors, have ponied up big time to fund Tisha’s campaign against me.

So instead of buying me dinner, jewelry, flowers, chocolates, a waffle iron – or even a new Zev Tech OZ9c Elite Pistol with the X Grip, Compact FDE Slide, Black Barrel and Trijicon RM06 Optic – if you want really make this a day to celebrate…

Please consider making a $47 dollar donation – or whatever amount you find comfortable – to my campaign so we have the funding needed to win this race and beat the Carson City power-brokers in June.


That would be the best birthday present I could possibly get!

Nevada Court Clash over Voter ID Next Week

Nevada Court Clash over Voter ID Next Week

(Sigal Chattah) – A recent Monmouth poll showed that 80 percent of people support requiring voters to show some kind of voter ID before voting, including 91 percent of Republicans, 87 percent of independents and 62 percent of Democrats.

Currently, 36 states have some form of voter ID law.  Nevada isn’t one of them…yet.

Repair the Vote PAC has submitted a citizens’ initiative to institute such a requirement in Nevada and is in the process of gathering enough signatures to place it on the ballot in November.

But Democrats, desperate to keep it easier to cheat, have sued to block the initiative.  The first hearing is scheduled for next week in Carson City.

I’ve volunteered, pro bono (free), to defend the initiative for Repair the Vote.  And for the last couple of weeks, I’ve been buried in research and writing the court briefs between campaign stops.


My GOP primary opponent, Tisha Black – who’s been missing in action during the last two years of political war over Gov. Steve Sisolak’s abuse of “emergency” powers – is doing her part on this critical issue…

Posing for photo ops.

While my nose was buried in law books preparing our case last weekend, Tish put down her cotton candy long enough to stop by the Repair the Vote booth at the Clark County Fair in Logandale and snapped a Polaroid for social media.

This is the difference between talking about an issue of concern to voters and actually doing something about it.  It’s also par for Tisha’s course.

On her campaign website, Tish writes that she understands “the wide spread damage caused by mask mandates” and claims she’ll “put parents concerns and children’s right to learn ahead of cruel political mandates.”

Tough talk.  But no action.  Or as they say in Texas, all hat and no cattle.

For the last two years, I’ve successfully fought Sisolak and his Attorney General, Aaron Ford, in court over those “cruel political mandates.”

We succeeded in forcing them to fully reopen our churches 10 days before Christmas in 2020, forced them to administer the COVID vaccine to high-risk citizens before giving it to young, healthy government workers in 2021, and have an open case pending on the mask mandates for kids in schools.

And I’m now fighting for election security.

As Lt. Sam Weinberg said in the movie A Few Good Men, it’s the difference between paper law and trial law.

Anyone can say and write anything.  And Tish is very good at saying and writing what she thinks people want to hear.

But when the rubber meets the road, there’s a big difference between talking big and actually going to court to fight on your behalf.

If Republicans want to nominate a candidate who looks sweet, takes great selfies and talks a good game but never actually plays, Tisha Black’s your gal.

But if you want a candidate who’s already been suiting up and slugging it out on the field with those on the left intent on stripping you of your constitutional rights, then I ask for your vote on June 14th.


P.S. Lest ye think I’m exaggerating about Tish being a photo-op queen and “Democrat plant,” here’s a recent photo she posted on social media…

For those who may not have long memories or suffer the occasional “Biden moment,” Mr. Mack is a former Democrat city councilman in Las Vegas who was forced out of office for ethical violations.

Here’s how Damon Hodge of Las Vegas Weekly detailed his transgressions back in 2004…

“Accepting money from one car-dealership owner while voting to deny a competitor’s application. Criminal charges. Curious business ventures, including a consulting company whose associates and clients have remained secret. A curious business alliance with one of the mayor’s sons. Hired to represent a strip club in the city’s jurisdiction. Using City Hall to promote family interests. His name surfaced in the G-Sting political corruption probe.”

If you’re known by the company your keep, Tisha Black certainly runs with some strange company.  Doesn’t she know any ethical REPUBLICAN business owners she could pose with?

But again, this is par for Tisha’s course.

Over the years, she’s been a generous donor to various Democrat candidates – including Sen. Harry Reid, Gov. Steve Sisolak and Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto – while failing to support their GOP opponents.

That’s not “business.”  That’s personal.

Not Ready for Prime Time: “Tish the Squish” Fumbles on Nevada Newsmakers

Not Ready for Prime Time: “Tish the Squish” Fumbles on Nevada Newsmakers

 (Sigal Chattah) – Tisha Black, my GOP primary opponent in the Nevada attorney general’s race, just did her first interview with Sam Shad on Nevada Newsmakers.  And it did not go well; definitely not ready for prime time.

Right out of the gate, “Tish the Squish” demonstrated how she’s good at talking the talk, but not so great at walking the walk.  On the issue of taxes, she said…

“As a businesswoman of 25 years, I really understand how taxes and policies affect the bottom line, affects businesses and affects communities.”

Well, if she really understood how taxes affect businesses and Nevada citizens, she’d put her money where her mouth is and, as I have, sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge promising to “oppose any and all efforts to increase taxes.”

She hasn’t.  I wonder why not?

Then, after complaining about me getting so much attention over the past two years by successfully fighting Gov. Steve Sisolak’s shutdowns and COVID mandates, Shad asked if she’d be willing to come back on the show and debate me.

Tish was clearly uncomfortable answering the question, which she apparently was unprepared for.  After gently chiding Shad for asking her the question on-air, she responded, “Yes, I would.”  To which Shad responded, “OK, very good.”

But then “The Squish” immediately went squishy, adding: “Time permitting.”

Shad, a veteran at dealing with such equivocation from politicians, assured her he would “make the time for you, that’s for sure.”

And so will I!

Tish was then asked to detail the kinds of legal work she does as an attorney.  She rattled off some examples of contract law and regulatory cases she handles for businesses…but somehow managed to omit any mention of her work in the marijuana industry.

Shad caught her evasion and brought it up.

But in answering the pot question, Tish chose not to mention the fact that her family is DEEPLY invested in marijuana dispensaries and conveniently failed to note that, until she decided to jump into the AG’s race just two months ago, she was the president of the Nevada Dispensary Association.

That, of course, raises serious conflict-of-interest concerns.  No wonder she chose not to disclose it.

Tish then went on to make a rather bizarre claim about the illegal marijuana market in Nevada now that dispensaries are legal…

“Um, the black market has actually raised its prices and they’ve actually been advertising on billboards.”

Huh?  Illegal street dealers are advertising on billboards?  Seriously?

But if true (doubtful), why didn’t she do anything as president of the marijuana association to report those billboards and get them taken down?

On to Sisolak’s handling of COVID…

“The mask mandate, obviously, is something I have a problem with,” The Squish ventured.  “Uh, uh, and, and I, I guess, I don’t think that is, um, the place of government to be that intricately involved in this physicality.”

So…the government did it…she says she has a problem with it…but she didn’t DO anything about it.  “Thank you, sir.  May I have another?”

Shad then asked her about concerns Republicans have about her history of making substantial contributions to Democrats, and my reference to her as a “progressive plant” in this race.

“It’s ridiculous, because I’m a business person,” The Squish replied.  “As business people, you know, we, we, it’s not, it’s not unusual at all for business people to get to know their politicians by trying to make, you know, donations to them or, um, at least have a seat at the table when you’re trying to talk about policy or craft things, right? I, I think, that, the ‘progressive plant’ is, you know…I don’t even play in the sandbox. I’m not going to live in Sigal’s sandbox.”

Glad to see I’m living rent-free in her head!  But here’s the thing…

Tish maxed out to Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto in Nevada’s 2016 U.S. Senate race ($5,000).  In that same race, she donated ZERO to the Republican candidate, then-Rep. Joe Heck.

Now bear in mind, this was an election in which The Cook Political Report, the Rothenberg Political Report and Real Clear Politics all listed the race as a “Toss Up” going into election day.

So if your excuse is that business people give donations to Democrats to “get to know their politicians” and “have a seat at the table,” why would you NOT also donate to the GOP candidate, a sitting member of Congress, who was running neck-and-neck with the Democrat in the race?

Also, in the 2012 race for Assembly District 37, Tish donated to the Democrat candidate, Marcus Conklin, but not the Republican candidate, Wes Duncan.

And in the 2014 race for Nevada attorney general, Tish donated to the Democrat candidate, Ross Miller, but not to GOP candidate Adam Laxalt.

Frankly, it’s Tisha’s excuse for donating to Democrats that’s “ridiculous.”

She didn’t donate to the Democrat candidates because it was a business decision and she was covering her bets.  It was because she preferred the liberal Democrat candidates over the conservative Republican ones.

She’s a “progressive plant.”  A trans-Republican (Democrat who “identifies” as a Republican).

But this last point is probably the thing GOP primary voters should be most concerned about…

When Shad pressed her on the fact that “politics ain’t beanbags” and questioned if she had the stomach for a tough race, Tish replied, “I’m no wilting lily.”

But earlier in the interview, when Shad asked what problems she had with Aaron Ford, Tish replied…

“Well, let’s…let’s be clear.  Um…I don’t…I’m not…I’m not going to be a nasty politician.  I don’t have any problems personally with Aaron Ford.”


I gotta tell you, I have a LOT of problems with Aaron Ford…

  • He defended Sisolak’s “Declaration of Emergency”
  • He defended Sisolak’s shutdown orders
  • He defended Sisolak’s mask mandates
  • He defended the Democrats unconstitutional tax hike in 2019
  • He supported the Black Lives Matter/Antifa rioters
  • He supports soft-on-crime “social justice” reforms
  • He supports race-based discrimination/affirmative action
  • He supports illegal immigration
  • He supports abortion on demand
  • He supports gun control
  • He opposes the death penalty
  • He opposes school choice
  • He opposes election security reforms
  • He endorsed Joe Biden and Kamala Harris (look where that’s gotten us!)
  • And he plays the race card…every…chance…he…gets.

And Tisha doesn’t have any problems personally with that?!!

Look, I get it.  She’s sugar, she’s spice, she’s everything nice.  She’s blond, she’s cute, and at parties she’s a hoot.

But she’s not tough.  She’s not a fighter.  She’s afraid of confrontation.

Aaron Ford, who she has no problems with, would make mincemeat out of her in the general election.  She’ll go down faster than the Titanic.

If Republicans want someone who will play nice in the sandbox and give Ford another four years in office (leading up to his gubernatorial run in 2026), Tish is your gal.

If Republicans want someone not afraid to fight and scrap and slug it out against Ford and the still-remaining Harry Reid political machine, then I ask for your vote.

In the end…it’s your choice.


“Since (Tisha) Black announced her candidacy in February, (Sigal) Chattah has worked to assert herself as the true Republican. She’s called into question Black’s loyalty to the party via Twitter, calling her a ‘#DemPlant.’” – Jazmin Orozco Rodriguez, 5/15/22

“I’m not so much a party person as I am a ‘person’ person.  To me, the far right and the far left are the same. … You must always work to open the compromise door.” – Tish “The Squish” Black, MyVegas Magazine, April 2019

“Word on the [street] is that my opponent and her RINO (Republican in Name Only) team are telling Carson City lobbyists that I’m a ‘radical’ Republican. Not maxing out (in donations) to Harry Reid, Steve Sisolak and Catherine [Cortez] Masto doesn’t make me ‘radical’, it makes me a Republican. I question whether @TishaBlack is though.” – Sigal Chattah

Sisolak: Make Cheating Easier, Catching Fraud Harder

Sisolak: Make Cheating Easier, Catching Fraud Harder

(Sigal Chattah) – This morning, Democrat Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak wrote in an email…

“Nevada Republicans are pushing two ballot initiatives to roll back the right to vote!  If they get away with it, both in-person voting and mail-in voting would be harder.”

That’s just a flat-out lie.

The first initiative would simply require voters to present a photo ID before voting – just as people do now to cash a check, board a plane, buy a beer or rent a room on the Strip.

And the idea that “poor people” can’t get a photo ID is nothing but an old wives’ tale.  Special accommodations can and would be made for anyone who can’t afford a photo ID.

The second initiative simply repeals measures Democrats passed in the last legislative session that make it easier to cheat – automatic mail-in balloting and ballot harvesting.

Nevadans have always had the ability to vote-by-mail for any reason – or for no reason at all – by simply requesting an absentee ballot.  Democrats want to automatically mail ballots to people who don’t want one – unnecessarily raising the chances for voting fraud.

Ballot harvesting – or, more accurately, ballot trafficking – allows political operatives to collect ballots from vulnerable voters, especially senior citizens, and turn them in to the election office.

This practice is so ripe for potential fraud or intimidation that it was actually a FELONY until Democrats changed the law last year.

The truth is, it’s extremely easy and convenient to vote in Nevada.

Voters can vote on Election Day in person.  Voters can vote early at various “Early Voting” sites for two full weeks leading up to Election Day.  And voters who do not wish to vote in person can request a mail-in ballot.

Returning our voting options to the pre-COVID system wouldn’t make it harder to vote; it would make it harder to cheat.  And how could anyone other than a cheater support that?

Election security is critical to preserving the integrity of our constitutional republic.

That’s why I not only support both initiatives, but am also spearheading defending voter integrity by representing the sponsor of the initiatives against Hillary Clinton’s lawyers who have sued to chaotically destroy voter integrity in Nevada.

Meanwhile, the campaign consultants for my GOP primary opponent, Tisha Black, are the same consultants who were in charge of election security for the 2020 elections and blew it…big time.

Tish the Squish herself, as with other issues, has been invisible in this fight.  She hasn’t even talked about it, let alone done anything about it.

Republican primary voters have a clear choice in the GOP primary for Attorney General: Someone who’s been in the arena duking it out with Sisolak and the Dems or someone’s who’s been sitting in the peanut gallery watching the parade go by.

If you want a constitutionalist fighter in the AG’s office, rather than a spectating compromiser and appeaser, I’d appreciate your vote on June 14.


P.S.  A “push poll” is being circulated in Nevada via text messages on the Attorney General’s race.  It provides brief biographical information about me, Tisha Black and Democrat incumbent Aaron Ford.

But get this…

After reading through the bios, the push-poll the asks “if the election for Nevada Attorney General were today, for which candidate would you vote?”

The choices are “Tisha Black,” “Aaron Ford,” “None of these” or “Undecided.”

They don’t even include my name!

This push-poll is clearly being conducted by supporters of Tisha Black and you can bet they’ll eventually publish a report claiming she’s the best candidate to take on Ford…since no one was even able to choose me in the poll!

Talk about dishonest.
