Is it legal for a convicted felon (stolen gov't property to include weapons) legally allowed to work at or attend a gun show?  If not, who would should I report the "sighting" to?

There is no law against a felon attending a gun show.  Nor against him working at a gun show.  Possession of firearms is illegal by a felon,  being in the same room as them is not a crime.

Yes, he cannot possess firearms. nothing prevents him from being in proximity to them.

Define "work at"?  Is he a vendor with guns on the table, or is he part of the crew that scrubs the toilets for the facility?

The last time I talked with ATF about a felon selling guns it fell on deaf ears.
