I’m in Love with Darcy Spears!

Darcy, you have done it again! You have located and exposed one of the worst HOA presidents in the country. I sincerely hope you’re winning a whole series of Emmy Awards for your HOA Hall of Shame feature on KTNV-TV in Las Vegas. Since I retired from the TV business four years ago I don’t have a chance to go back and emulate your reporting. But dang! Keep it up, girl!

For those not familiar with Darcy’s work, you owe it to yourselves to click on the link below. With perfect manners and charm, she picks out these slugs and losers and shows the world what life in an HOA can become. With the rampant organized corruption in Las Vegas homeowner associations, with the suicides that really don’t look like suicides, with the numbers of people who’ve seen their home values plummet up to 90%, you’ve gotta believe there’s a lot more subject matter for the HOA Hall of Shame series.

The FBI investigation in Las Vegas is going far too slowly. The FBI usually moves with lightning speed, but for some reason this investigation is just dragging. Maybe some of you Vegas homeowners who’ve lost your shirts to the Quon/Amesbury organized crime ring ought to be turning up the heat. Where are the judges and state legislators who were supposed to be indicted? How high up the political ladder does this corruption go?

Finally, when is the FBI going to take its new knowledge of HOA corruption and start hitting other cities? There’s not a city in the country that’s immune from the kind of crookedness the feds have uncovered in Las Vegas. Embezzlement, rampant racism, bribery, fixed court cases, theft, animal poisoning, vandalism, laundered money, death threats, murder: every one of those crimes is going on across America as gated neighborhoods continue to fester.

Now that the Internet has become the “Fifth Estate,” news about this scandal is finally leaking past the traditional media and making its way out to the public. Skeptical? That’s OK, I like skeptics. But just start Googling and the number of HOA crimes might begin to look a little scary to you.

By the way, here’s Darcy’s link:
