Any updates on how the contractors that do business with the School Board are processing their kickbacks AKA campaign contributions now?
We got some interesting reporting a while back on how Rocky and his brother had set up those state of the art (at the time) Las Vegas based HAA HAA shell companies to accept and process the campaign contributions AKA kickbacks. But I imagine by now they have evolved to a new and much more advanced method of processing those funds.
Maybe a little investigative reporting by contacting the contractors business offices and speaking to their financial employee(s) would shed some insight on what advanced state of the art processes and strategies the School Board has evolved to quietly and on the down low receive the campaign contributions in 2022.
Asking for a friend.
