Former tourism official agrees to fines in gift card probe
LAS VEGAS (AP) - The former chief marketing officer of the Las Vegas tourism agency has agreed to pay $8,700 in fines for violations stemming from the personal use of the agency's airline gift cards.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Thursday that a review panel determined last month there was "credible evidence" for the Nevada Commission on Ethics to pursue a complaint against Cathy Tull.
Authorities say Tull used $6,000 in Southwest Airlines gift cards that were purchased by the publicly funded Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.
The commission will consider next week approving the agreement with Tull.
Tull's lawyer, Mike Pavlakis, did not respond to the newspaper's request for comment.
Tull resigned from the agency in April amid investigations into the misuse of the gift cards by agency officials.
