Del Toro: Summit County shalt not embezzle

Good work financial crimes investigators! Sheriff’s Department bags a BOGO – “Arrest an embezzler, arrest another embezzler for free!” Polich gets arrested for allegedly pilfering $160,000 from his HOA, and Sue Frank of Summit Association of Realtors get arrested for allegedly writing seven fraudulent checks for $415,000. Instead, here’s a novel idea — work for your money.

Here’s another thought. Why has SAR charged the maximum fee allowed by law to become a Realtor and enroll in MLS for the last 20-plus years. Seriously, a non-profit section 501(c)(6) organization with $1,400,000 in assets. To cover a handful of employees and a dumpy office in Dillon? In my book, that’s one-point-four million dollars of services that were never provided to the business people who paid that organization.
