FALLON, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- A Nevada Department of Transportation employee in Fallon is being charged with using a state credit card to support his gambling habit.

Tal Perre Smith is accused of buying about $250,000 worth of items which he later pawned or sold to pay for the gambling. The Nevada Appeal reports that a six-count indictment was filed against Smith in New River Township Justice Court in Fallon.

According to the complaint, Smith made repeated illegal purchases over a three-year period ending last December and concealed them by altering receipts and other records.

I too am embarrassed by my senator, Harry "dead on arrival" Reid, but he has nothing to do with NDOT.

Nothing is going to come of it because Dingy Harry Ried will sweep it under the desert rug.

Heads need to roll over this!! There needs to be a complete audit of NDOT and I'll bet you that this probably isn't an isolated incident!!
