Steve-Barket-Las-Vegas-john-l-smith-mug-shot-side-by-sideWell, well, well. Can’t keep karma down, can you?

I’ve heard from someone very close to our friend, the Las Vegas Review Journal columnist, John L. Smith. Used to be close to him, anyway. Not so much anymore. This person is a female acquaintance who is alleged to be his former girlfriend, and who has sent a couple of very revealing emails to me. Let’s call her “Rachel” for ease of reference.

After spending quite a bit of time with him, Rachel came away feeling the same way about him as I do. To quote her, John L. Smith is “an unscrupulous liar and cheat and one day will get all the payback he deserves.”

Rachel went on to say that Smith would whine about me and say what a thorn in his side I was. (Good! I’m gettin’ to him.) And Rachel also confirmed that Smith was NOT the all-around great guy reporter and father of the year that he wants to try to portray in regards to his public image. (Surprise!)

This alleged ex-girlfriend also reports that Smith has a new girlfriend, who he moved into his house in Mt. Charleston after her husband kicked her out of their Santa Fe, New Mexico home.

Come to find out that Smith broke his leg, Rachel alleges … he apparently fell at this new girlfriend’s mother’s house in Boulder City. Broke his leg in several places.

Karma coming into play, eh? I’m not so sure that with all he’s done, that karma is through with him yet. We’ll see what comes into play for Smith in the coming months … Stay tuned.
