Las Vegas Democratic Assemblyman Steven Brooks says his sanity has never been in question, but that he's dealing with a "purely physical" medical issue.
Brooks attended the Assembly floor session Wednesday, the day after he rejected a leave of absence request from Assembly leadership. He told reporters later that a paid leave was simply out of the question because he's here to serve his constituents.
Brooks says he wouldn't accept a penny from taxpayers if he wasn't working.
The state lawmaker has been under scrutiny after being arrested in January over threats he allegedly made about Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick. He was later admitted to a hospital for a mental evaluation. (AP)
