A local Democrat official out of Las Vegas is currently the number one suspect in the stabbing murder of Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Jeff German, 69, and the reason why is reportedly because of German’s reporting on said Democrat’s shenanigans.
The shenanigans of Clark County Public Administrator Robert “Rob” Telles include running a dysfunctional office and having an affair with a staffer.
“Earlier this year, German reported on strife in the Public Administrator’s office that included ‘complaints of administrative bullying, favoritism and Telles’ “inappropriate relationship” with a subordinate staffer. … That reporting was reportedly in part responsible for Telles’ primary election defeat in June,” according to Deadline.
“German, 69, had continued to report on the matter and filed public record records requests for emails and text messages between Telles and Assistant Public Administrator Rita Reid, estate coordinator Roberta Lee-Kennett and consultant Michael Murphy. Lee-Kennett had been previously identified as the subordinate allegedly to have engaged in an affair with Telles.”
But German hadn’t just been concocting wild theories out of thin air. Indeed, he had evidence, including the following surveillance footage showing Telles doing something with Lee-Kennett in the back seat of her car:
German reportedly published the video in May.
Toward the end of the video, both Telles and Lee-Kennett can be seen exiting the vehicle, but from opposite sides.
In addition, when Lee-Kennett exits, she pulls her skirt down, which observers say may be a sign that she and Telles had been fooling around.
Both Telles and Lee-Kennett are married (not to each other).
The going theory, based on German’s damning reporting — reporting that was “responsible for Telles’ primary election defeat in June” and may have also affected Telles’ marriage — is that Telles either went to confront German and lost his cool or he’d intended to murder him from the get-go.
Either way, “German was found on Saturday morning outside his area home,” according to Deadline, meaning the stabbing happened outside.
“Police surmised he was stabbed in an altercation the previous day. The coroner determined German died of ‘multiple sharp force injuries’ and the case was ruled a homicide,” Deadline reported.
Local station KLAS further notes that, upon inspecting the crime scene, investigators found DNA that matched that of Telles.
“Several sources told the 8 News Now Investigators on Wednesday night that DNA linked Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles to the murder of Review-Journal investigative reporter Jeff German,” the station reported.
Robert Telles now faces a murder charge.
Sources tell me DNA links him to the crime scene.
His initial appearance in court is set for tomorrow at 1:30pm, according to jail records. https://t.co/W6SuBU0JT4

Telles’ arrest came hours after local authorities executed a search warrant on his home.
“Las Vegas police confirm a search warrant was served Wednesday morning at the home of Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles who has been the focus of recent investigative stories by reporter Jeff German,” according to KLAS.
“Police spent much of Wednesday at Telles’ home which is located near Charleston Boulevard and Hualapai Way. Officers left the home around 2 p.m. and Telles returned shortly after wearing a white paper suit. Sources told 8 News Now that Telles had been with investigators.”
He was captured on camera upon his return home.
Watch, and note that this happened a few hours before his arrest:

“Why did you do this?” he was repeatedly asked my reporters.
Telles refused to reply.
The reaction to Telles’ alleged murder of German has been disbelief over the limited outrage over the crime:
Imagine if an elected Republican murdered a journalist? https://t.co/6NbWiMJ8xo

To be clear, the media have been reporting Telles’ arrest. However, there’s been no discussion at all about the political factor.
The political factor is highly relevant, critics say, because German’s murder — allegedly by a Democrat — occurred just a day after President Joe Biden ranted and raved to the American people about how Trump-supporting Republicans are a threat to democracy.
Yet this is the second major Democrat-related murder scandal to erupt this year.
Back in January, longtime New Jersey Democrat political consultant Sean Caddle pleaded guilty “to hiring two people to kill a former associate,” Politico reported at the time.
“Caddle admitted hiring two people from Connecticut and Pennsylvania to kill the victim in May 2014. … [T]he victim was stabbed to death and his apartment set on fire. Caddle met with the killers, who were not identified, the day after the murder in the parking lot of an Elizabeth diner and paid them ‘thousands of dollars in cash,'” the outlet reported.
We now have a possible case of a Democrat elected official killing a journalist in Nevada and an almost certain case of a Democrat political operative involved in multiple politically-related murders in New Jersey and the national media is ODDLY SILENT about these things.
