The Iconoclast is on the county's butt for an audit reporting multiple instances of no-bid contracts by county government, including to pay a contractor hired to pave a road to a Walton-backed kids' summer camp. You can bet the Waltons don't run THEIR business this way. But, hey, this is just taxpayers' money.
