Kate Sedinger, our Community Journalist in Reno, who works with Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada, shared a disturbing video that features one of her co-workers. Elvira Diaz works to register voters outside of a Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles office, but has faced serious intimidation for doing so. Diaz says she has been shoved and spat at—and in the video, she identifies Republican Party operative Alex Bacchus as the man who formed a hand gesture like a gun, aimed his fingers at her, and made firing sounds.
This is Alex Bacchus
In the caption of the above photo that accompanied a July 29, 2012 story in the Fresno Bee, Bacchus is described as “a voter registration coordinator at the Washoe County Republican Party headquarters.”
