Another Nevada Lawyer Bites The Big One

Gosh, I was another blogger who missed this story last month. But the total number of organized crime lawyers and contractors pleading guilty in the Nevada HOA racketeering trial now numbers 30. And those dirty 30 will be testifying against the 9. 

Don’t ever let a homeowner express doubt when you try to convince him or her that racketeering runs throughout the American HOA movement. The feds have nailed 39 crooks in this organized crime ring in Nevada. Believe me the true number in that state is actually in the thousands. And this web of HOA corruption infects and infests the rest of the states.

As I’ve said before, the Nevada trial is just a ‘show trial’. This federal investigation was undertaken for only one purpose: to demonstrate to all the state law enforcement agencies that they can do the same kind of investigations on a local basis. That would be a miracle… if it ever happens
