Clark County Democratic official arrested in murder of Las Vegas reporter


UPDATE: 6:38 PM – SWAT teams have arrested Rob Telles for the murder of Las Vegas Review-Journal investigative reporter Jeff German.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police confirmed they issued a search warrant Wednesday at the home of Clark County Democratic Public Administrator Robert Telles in connection with the murder of Las Vegas Review-Journal investigative reporter Jeff German.

German was found dead Saturday morning outside his northwest Las Vegas home in the 7200 block of Bronze Circle, the Metropolitan Police Department reported. Police say he was fatally stabbed in an altercation on Friday, they later released video of the suspect.

Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles was the subject of one of German’s recent investigations, exposing corruption in Clark County government. Telles lost his re-election bid in the June primary after German’s story was published.

German was working on a follow-up story on Telles and corruption in Clark County government the week he was killed. German had recently filed public records requests for emails and text messages between Telles and three other Clark County officials: Deputy Public Administrator Rita Reid, Real Estate Coordinator Roberta Lee-Kennett (who German said was involved in an “inappropriate relationship” with Telles), and consultant Michael Murphy. Telles was secretly filmed by employees meeting in the back seat of Lee-Kennett’s car.

In 2019, Telles was appointed to the Indigent Defense Services Board by Governor Steve Sisolak. Earlier this year, we published a report highlighting the corruption of this council and how the Clark County council and commission were siphoning off $93 million a year from taxpayers and funneling it into so-called projects for the sans. -shelter.

In May this year, German wrote an article accusing the Telles’ office of being “mired in internal turmoil and dissension” for two years due to allegations of emotional stress, bullying and favouritism. After losing his first candidacy in June, Telles posted an “update” on his re-election campaign website on what he called a “fabricated scandal.”

Telles also tweeted a number of angry tweets at the reporter. At the time, the rest of the Las Vegas media refused to report on the story because they usually cover local Democrats – unless of course they are forced to cover the story when the police turn up. present at the person’s home and serve a mandate.

Telles has a long campaign history with hardline Democrats like Elizabeth Warren, Steve Sisolak, Susie Lee and Aaron Ford. He was often used to push radical Democratic propaganda in Clark County. Ironically, the guy currently under investigation for murder has often launched bizarre rants against Republicans and gun owners, and often pushed for gun control.

After videos of the alleged killer and his vehicle were released by Las Vegas police, Review-Journal reporters spotted Rob Telles in the driveway of his home with a vehicle matching the description. This vehicle was towed from the Telles property around 12:50 p.m. Wednesday during the search of his home.

Ironically, the corrupt local Las Vegas media will now be forced to cover the story, despite ignoring this corruption for years and not saying a word when this guy’s pal, Governor Steve Sisolak, threatened journalists in 2020.

The truth is, they don’t care about reporters when they report real facts or dare to say anything negative about their Democratic handlers! In fact, a number of local journalists who are now talking about this “tragedy” are the same scumbags who tried to dox our journalists and our web hosting company last year.

They are also the same so-called “journalists” who said nothing when the Clark County Commission began threatening bloggers and real journalists in 2021 and passed a resolution to silence their reporting.
