Black Velvet Bruce Li has the latest chapter in the ongoing Rack n’ Roll saga.
This one goes back to 1994. I realize that if Mr. Ruttenberg’s battles with local officials go back 12 years, it sort of undercuts the theory about off-track betting being behind all of this.
But I as I wrote in my post last month, I don’t think the motivators need to be mutually exclusive. It’s possible that Manassas Park officials had petty longstanding grudges against David Ruttenberg and that they were prepared to tap those grudges to push him out of his lease.
