One thing that unites every one at Las Vegas Tribune is that we do not believe in fake news; we do not lie and we do not use phantom sources or imaginary confidential sources; everything we write is real, is credible, and on many occasions we publish stories before the daily newspaper does.
Just recently we published a story about District Court Judge William Kephart being charged with five ethics violations by the Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline, and the daily newspaper came out with the story ten days later.
Every article we publish, every story we write is written with plenty of proof and with the backing of court documents because we believe in the truth and nothing but the truth.
When we wrote about Judge Kephart’s campaign manager, Lisa Mayo De Riso, having an arrest warrant for writing over $3,000.00 in bad checks, we secured a copy of the arrest warrant to back up our story.
Lisa Ann Mayo also represents City Councilman Stavros Anthony that now, after just eight weeks post winning reelection, has decided to become a candidate for Congress.
The newspaper has discarded the notion that maybe DeRiso’s “political connections” in District Court or in City Hall are covering for her because if they were to “protect” Lisa Ann Mayo, or her husband, Keith DeRiso, they could have made her case disappear by now, or at least “quash” the arrest warrant that is putting her in danger of being arrested for a criminal offense categorized as a category D felony.
The series that we are currently writing about local Attorney Scott Holper is in the same category; everything we print is taken from court documents, and in some cases we do not print the names of his victims because most of them are concerned about Holper’s erratic behavior that could possibly hurt them.
Scott Holper has been arrested for domestic violence, burglary and other charges; he has orders of protection filed against him by several other attorneys, his own father and stepmother and his own wife, even if she now wants to deny it during a one-way telephone conversation in which she did not let anyone else get a word in, but the Nevada State Bar seems not to care and allows Holper to continue his law practice, risking the safety and perhaps the life of many people that are in contact with him.
Scott Holper refers to individuals of the Black race as “Niggers smoking crack” and has already agreed with the Nevada State Bar to a lengthy suspension from the practice of law for numerous violations, including lying to judges and ripping off clients, but it seems like the Nevada Supreme Court is not in any hurry to act by confirming that suspension or refusing to act on that suspension.
The day his wife called the Las Vegas Tribune office to yell, insult and threaten this reporter, along with an anonymous cowardly telephone call telling this reporter “I am going to stab you” doesn’t seem to count in the eyes of the Nevada Supreme Court, but it does not count in this reporter’s mind either.
We have stated many times that we are not in this business to get rich, to make friends or to win a popularity contest; we are in this business to expose the corruption and the wrongdoing by public and elected officials at all levels of government.
We do not scare too easily; if anyone believes that by making a telephone call to tell me he is going to stab me is scary to this reporter, he will be very disappointed to know it is nothing more than a laughing matter to me.
