LAS VEGAS - The controversial Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been under fire lately.
FLDS was winning millions of dollars worth of taxpayer-funded work by underbidding other contractors by as much as 15 to 20 percent.
The federal government has turned up the pressure, so in 2016, a federal court ruled in 2016 that leaders of the polygamous sect's home base, the Twin Towns of Hilldale, Utah and Colorado City, Arizona were discriminating against non-FLDS residents.
A quick records search found a JNJ contract for a nearly $3 million renovation of the City of Las Vegas' Bob Baskin Park.
The county followed that same rule when it issued JNJ the contract for a $2.9 million renovation of Alexander Villas Park, though that bid was only $4,000 less than the nearest competitor.
