LIMO COMPANY STIFFED: RMA Worldwide owner and NLA board director Robert Alexander contends that White House party crasher-turned reality TV star Tareq Salahi has crashed his bottom line by $34,000 in unpaid limo bills. Alexander was quoted recently in the Washington Post about the dispute. This is one issue where LCT is not coy about taking sides. After all, RMA Worldwide Chauffeured Transportation is a 2011 LCT Operator of the Year Award winner, and the company was featured in the October 2012 issue of LCT as a model of client retention. So Salahi's complaints about RMA's service deserve plenty of skepticism. The only editorial comment I would make is it should be no surprise that someone who tries to mooch off a White House party would [allegedly] try to stiff a private sector limousine company to get attention. -- Martin Romjue, LCT editor
The 2016 election year also marked LCT's own brand of anti-establishment activity.
