Attacks on Rossi Ralenkotter are misplaced

In response to the June 17 columns by the Review-Journal’s Victor Joecks and Richard N. Velotta on the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority:

How do either of these writers know that convention authority CEO Rossi Ralenkotter didn’t know the cards from Southwest were not gifts? They act as if he is a hardened criminal, using phrases such as “he’d been caught” and “someone ought to call the police.” Do you think he couldn’t afford $266 a month for travel over the five-year period you say the cards were used?

For all Mr. Ralentkotter has done for Las Vegas, he should get a “golden parachute.” Petty reporters such as Mr. Joecks and Mr. Velotta ought to get a life. They never have anything positive to write about.
