OK, so Cool Hand Nick Pacheco (right, under pink hat), the father of the infamous CLARTS fund, recently had some money refunded to him by the Rudy Martinez campaign.
Speculation is that Rudy Martinez refunded to Nick's firm $6,000 because the donors at the firm weren't real givers--Nick himself was. By spreading the donations out, he could pass the $500 city donation limit. But this is destined to remain mere speculation, now that the money has made its return to whomever's pockets from which it originally departed.
Over New Years, Nick documented a nice blowout trip to Vegas, and even went so far as to take photos of stacks of chips for his Facebook buds, and we were very appreciative. One thing for sure: we continue to admire Nick's riverboat sangfroid.
