June 08: Carroll Publishing Company: John Courson, Columbia Republican, resigns from South Carolina State Senate after pleading guilty to misconduct in office

June 8, 2018: South Carolina State Sen. John Courson, Columbia Republican, resigned from office on Monday, June 4, 2018, after he pleaded guilty to misconduct in office. Coursonm 73, faces up to sixteen years in prison in connection with allegations that he pocketed $160,000 in campaign cash. His sentencing was postponed until he cooperates with prosecutors, which could include testifying before a state grand jury. Courson could face up to ten years in prison if he fails to cooperate with the state, Circuit Judge Carmen Mullen said. Courson has not yet been asked to pay back any of the campaign money. "I am very disappointed that I've let down my constituents," Courson said after a brief hearing on June 4. Courson is the fourth Republican Legislator in South Carolina to plead guilty and resign in an ongoing Statehouse corruption investigation. He joins former House Speaker Bobby Harrell, Charleston, and former House Majority Leaders Jim Merrill, Charleston, and Rick Quinn, Lexington. None of the other former Legislators received prison time, but they did receive fines and probation. Courson's plea occurred as his trial was set to start in Columbia. It would have been the first corruption case heard by a jury since the investigation started in 2013. Courson told The Post and Courier last week, the week of May 27-June 2, 2018, that he rejected a plea deal offered late in 2017 that would have him resign from office. Courson said after the hearing that he sent campaign contributions to his political consultant, Richard Quinn and Associates, which would give him a portion back to cover years of unpaid personal campaign reimbursements. State law does not allow candidates to do that. Plus, Courson failed to itemize the reimbursements on his disclosure reports.

June 05: Carroll Publishing Company : Rossi Rafenkotter to retire as Chief Executive Officer, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority

June 5, 2018: Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority Chief Executive Officer Rossi Ralenkotter is preparing to retire. A close friend of Ralenkotter's has told The Las Vegas Review-Journal about Ralenkotter's plans. The disclosure occurs after Ralenkotter has battled cancer for a year, and after criticism of the agency's alleged misspending and alleged cozy relationships with Board Members. Ralenkotter, 71, who has led the high-profile tourism agency since 2004, has discussed stepping down with his family and Convention and Visitors Authority Board Members and could make an announcement within a couple of weeks, the friend said. Ralenkotter declined to comment. Earlier this year, 2018, Ralenkotter learned he was cancer-free after a years-long fight with the disease, and he started considering life without the pressures of running the publicly-funded Convention Authority, said his friend, who asked to remain anonymous. It is unclear whether Ralenkotter wants to retire soon or at a later date. Ralenkotter has consulted a lawyer to ensure that he receives a proper financial package when he leaves, sources said. As recently as two months ago, Ralenkotter publicly told Board Members he wanted to stay on the job until January, 2021, to witness the opening of a 600,000-square-foot exhibition hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center. "He said he'd like to see it through," said North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee, who is a Board Member.

Lee said he has not heard talk about Ralenkotter's imminent retirement. The convention Authority has been bracing for Ralenkotter's departure since 2015, when it brought in a national consulting firm to help overhaul its leadership structure and create a succession plan. In January, 2018, the Authority hired Steve Hill, a former Director of the Nevada Governor's Office of Economic Development, as the Authority's President and Chief Operating Officer.

June 04: Carroll Publishing Compa: Steven Cook appointed Chairman, Superfund Task Force, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

June 4, 2018: Steven D. Cook has been appointed as the Chairman of the Superfund Task Force at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Cook succeeds Albert Kelly, who resigned in early May, 2018, after questions arose about his history in the banking field. Cook was most recently the Deputy Assistant Administrator for the EPA's Office of Land and Emergency Management, a post he held since February, 2018. Before he took that position, Cook worked for more than twenty years as the in-house corporate counsel at LyondellBasell Industries, one of the world's largest plastics, chemicals and refining companies. One of LyondellBasell's companies is the Lyondell Chemical Co., which is based in Houston. Trump has nominated Peter C. Wright as the Assistant Administrator for Land and Emergency Management at the EPA, but Wright has not yet been confirmed to the post by the U.S. Senate. Wright has worked as a corporate lawyer at the Dow Chemical Co. since 1999. The EPA is an independent federal government agency.

June 01: Carroll Publishing Company: Illinois State Rep. Lou Lang, Skokie Democrat, resigns as Deputy Majority Leader amid allegations of harassment

Illinois State Rep. Lou Lang, Skokie Democrat, announced yesterday, Thursday, May 31, 2018, that he is resigning as the State House of Representatives' Deputy Majority Leader in the wake of allegations of abuse against him. Lang resigned his leadership position after Maryann Loncar alleged that she was harassed, intimidated and humiliated by Lang after she "rejected the inappropriate actions of Rep. Lou Lang." Loncar alleged in a press release that Lang "committed terrible acts against her while she advocated for a bill that he sponsored." Lang has represented the State House 16th District--encompassing parts of Skokie, Lincolnwood and Chicago--since 1987. He is also the Executive Vice Chairman of the Cook County, Ill., Democratic Party-and he was the chief House sponsor of the Equal Rights Amendment, which passed just the day before the allegations surfaced. Lang released a statement on May 31, 2018, saying that he submitted a "former request to the Special Legislative Inspector General to begin an immediate investigation" of Loncar's allegations. Lang added that "after consultation with Speaker [Michael] Madigan" he has decided to resign from his leadership position.
