Embattled Michele Fiore schedules news conference with lawyer

Embattled Las Vegas Councilwoman Michele Fiore is set to hold an “important” news conference Tuesday morning alongside her attorney.

Fiore’s election campaign sent out media advisories on Friday and Monday, informing reporters that Fiore will speak publicly from the Italian American Club on East Sahara Avenue.

However it was not clear what Fiore plans to say. Her campaign said Monday it could not disclose the reason for her news conference.

The first-term city lawmaker, and former state assemblywoman, has been involved in a recent torrent of controversies.

Fiore is under FBI investigation related to her campaign finances; fellow Councilwoman Victoria Seaman accused her of breaking Seaman’s finger in an assault inside City Hall; and Fiore survived a failed recall effort last year fueled in part by racially charged remarks she reportedly made regarding affirmative action.

Fiore’s term on the council will expire in November 2022. Although she has hinted at running for mayor in 2024, Fiore has not formally disclosed her next political move, including whether she will seek reelection or run for higher office.

The news conference is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. The Las Vegas Review-Journal plans to livestream the event.
