Charges Against Nevada Tea Party Candidate Could Be Dropped

LAS VEGAS -- A Las Vegas judge is expected to approve the withdrawal of criminal charges today against a Nevada Tea Party candidate looking to unseat Sen. Harry Reid.

Prosecutors say Scott Ashjian paid more than $5,500 to cover a bounced check. Records show he faces foreclosure on almost $1 million in home loans, owes $200,000 to the IRS and faces liens and city nuisance actions
