    Nevada has had nothing but scandal surrounding their rating protocol and metodologies so the people directly involved with our huge misfortune are now going on to secure contracts elsewhere, too!? Sounds like the industry insiders know EXACTLY how to cherry pick willing regulators into their game which means Chad W. should be investigated asap. Omg.
