Maybe It's Just a 60-day Lunch?
Word is that Jordy Tollett, a.k.a. president/CEO of the Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau, is taking some time off of work. This, of course, comes on the heels of KPRC's undercover report, which found him doing more than just passing out business cards at some Houston bars during his two-hour lunches.
Tollett met with the GHCVB's executive committee this morning about the Channel 2 report. Doug Horn, chairman of the bureau's board, said that "Jordy recognized that he had a problem," and that Tollett asked the board to "give him an opportunity to take extended time off to address those issues. " Tollett will use his 60-day vacation time and some medical leave.

Other folks seem to have already come up with a diagnosis. Here's one assessment of Tollett's issue, courtesy of Lone Star Times:

Wait, so what exactly is the problem? -- Steven Devadanam
