Can you serve on a Super Bowl host committee behind bars?

Scott Rothstein, the disbarred attorney sitting in federal detention on corruption charges, is still listed as serving on the host committee for the Super Bowl according to an online media guide.

Rodney Barreto, a businessman who chairs the host committee, said that new media guides will omit Rothstein's name and he expects it to be removed from the website today.

Barreto said he invited Rothstein to join a few months ago, and Rothstein agreed but then was a no-show.

"He never came to a meeting, he never wrote us a check, he never sponsored anything,'' Barreto said.
