Ricky Barlow pays the price
But Steve Wolfson’s aide does not. Why?

After reading the Saturday article on the sentencing of former Las Vegas City Councilman Ricki Barlow, I immediately thought of District Attorney Steve Wolfson’s campaign manager Audrie Locke, who stole campaign funds from her boss. I ask: Where is the justice for Ms. Locke’s wrongdoing? Is there something I missed?
It looks as if Barlow is getting a severe punishment in comparison to Ms. Locke, who had to be cornered to tell the truth and still holds a position of public trust. It saddens me that there is apparently still such a nasty racial divide in our system of law.
What a joke and a mockery of our American values. We nail the man who pleads guilty and openly accepts his punishment, and we let a true crook off the hook with gambling therapy, etc.
