Kudos, once again, to Las Vegas reporter Darcy Spears. Her latest expose’, though, makes me want tear someone’s eyes out of their head.
Vegas is sort of the center-of-the-world for corruption among HOA boards. But the latest crimes are the ones committed against children. 10 year old Paul Busch has been banned by the Central Park Homeowners Association from playing in any of the common areas for the next six months. His crime? A board member claims he saw Paul and a friend break a sprinkler head. There’s no proof of course, except the word of this board member. Well, I take that back, there was another witness who specifically said the boy didn’t do it.
Still, Paul’s mother was hit with several HOA fines.
The creepiest part of the story is that Paul’s mom grew up in Communist East Germany. She says the spying that went on there was at least a little more subtle.
Well Comrade Eva, welcome to HOA Amerika.
