A Nevadan against Goodman

There’s at least one Nevadan is hoping Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman doesn’t run for governor and win.

That would be the 17-year-old kid in Reno recently busted and accused of 271 incidents of graffiti vandalism in Washoe County.

Goodman, in one of the many controversial statements of his career, has called for cutting off the thumbs of graffiti artists.

“I’m saying maybe you put them on TV and cut off a thumb,” the mayor said in a 2005 interview on the subject of graffiti vandalism. “That may be the right thing to do.”
