Karma can also be quite sweet for those who have been targets of vitriolic smears over the years, even though just a bystander witnessing the sweet karmic ‘just rewards’ getting dished out on those so deserving of receiving a taste of what they gave out before.

Such is the case going on this primary election in regards to some fringe, far right PCO’s from the Clark County Republican party hoping to retain their PCO position or desiring to oust others and assist in returning fringe control over the county level party.
