In the spring of 2006, a woman told me at a local restaurant about a West Las Vegas schools-sponsored party that cost thousands of dollars. It was invitation only. No kids allowed.
The kicker: It was paid for with taxpayer funds, she said.
That sounded interesting, but unbelievable. I had a lot of stories on my plate at the time, so I didn’t put any time into pursuing this lead.
But one by one, five more people called me up to tell me about the party.
