When President Trump and his supporters were run out of Reno after they were caught planning an large campaign event, somebody suggested moving it to the Minden-Tahoe Airport. Douglas County obliged the group and invited them to hold the rally at an airplane hanger there.
But state officials quickly learned about the “slide south” – that the Trump organization had set up the Trump rally at the Minden Airport – at ABS Aviation. The state found out about it and fined them for breaking a state law against overcrowding an event during a pandemic – and what’s more, they had not created a state-mandated safety plan.
The final result was that ABS Aviation was fined by the state $2,603 and another fine of $2,950 against Douglas County for giving Trump permission to hold the rally despite a ban on such events during a pandemic.
It’ll be interesting to see if either fine gets paid.
