Politics

'Ballot Royale' Starring Michael Douglas and Kevin Bacon

June 2, 2011

It has all the trappings of a Hollywood blockbuster. Courtroom intrigue, politics, and yes, even some seasoned actors.

Okay, the last part isn't quite true, but we couldn't help but notice that the Chief Justice of the state Supreme Court, which is currently reviewing the dispute over how the special election in Nevada's 2nd District should be conducted, is named Michael Douglas and the Deputy Attorney General, who is representing the secretary of state's office, is named Kevin Bacon.

If nothing else, we can now all play "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" -- Nevada politics edition.
