Jon Ralston has more details about how Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks (D) came to be arrested over the weekend on charges of threatening Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick (D).

Brooks apparently told another lawmaker that was looking to "do in" the speaker and was driving around with a loaded gun in his car. Police later found a .357 Smith and Wesson with 41 live rounds of ammo in his car.
