Lynette Boggs, former member of Station Casinos’ Board of Directors, who has been dogged by scandal throughout her relatively brief career in Las Vegas politics, finally faces criminal charges.
In an unprecedented move, District Attorney David Roger on Monday charged Boggs with lying in her campaign paperwork about where she lived and about paying a nanny from campaign coffers. The 43-year-old faces four felonies, two counts each of perjury and filing false or forged documents. Link to news story.
It is ironic that DA David Roger, apparently long bought and paid for by casino interests, is the one bringing the charges against Boggs. Roger, then an Assistant District Attorney, along with present District Court Judge David Wall, handled the original sham prosecution of Sandy Murphy in the death of Ted Binion.
