Tahoe’s hottest ticket: Harry Reid and friends

Whoever said public policy doesn’t sell hasn’t tried to scrounge up VIP tickets to the Lake Tahoe Environmental Summit.

Sales of VIP tickets to the “yearly gathering of federal, state, and local leaders dedicated to the goal of restoring and sustaining Lake Tahoe,” were halted this week over concerns that scalpers were buying up the inventory with an eye for a markup and resale.

“We became aware that some tickets are being resold for profit and we are suspending VIP ticket sales until we can identify a way to protect the integrity of this event,” stated an email from Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, the summit host. General admission tickets are still available online.
