Screwy Stuff From This Former Texas Senator

I’ve written repeatedly about the ethics-challenged former Texas state senator John Carona. He’s the billionaire who owns a company that oversees about 9,000 Homeowners Associations across the country. And his rules for homeowner behavior are beyond bizarre.

One that still gets my goat is that a homeowner can be fined for the behavior of any guest who ‘intends’ on visiting his property. No kidding! A Home Depot truck was stopped for speeding. The fake officer asked where the driver was making his delivery. And that homeowner got fined because the Home Depot truck’s first stop was at that homeowner’s house.

Every time you think it can’t get any wilder, just hang around this website. It just gets crazier. I’m surprised more authors haven’t written fiction books about the HOA movement.

Stephen King, are you listening?
