While U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland announced a DOJ investigation into the Minneapolis police department, the AG must also start a sweeping investigation into the dereliction of duty by state legislatures in their unconstitutional support, promotion and encouragement of homeowner association legislation.
Legislation, which affects some 23% of all Americans living in an HOA, that permits contractual, authoritarian private governments (HOAs or community associations) not accountable to the US Constitution.
The DOJ must also investigate the role and extent of the influence on state legislatures by the national, self-proclaimed expert in HOA law, the Community Associations Institute (CAI) and its affiliate, The Foundation for Community Association Research. The DOJ must examine the extent of the teachings of the CAI School of HOA Governance has had in creating longtime conditioning and indoctrination of legislators, the media, and the public.
“CAI School” is a term that I use to describe the collection of all CAI statements, publications and including seminars, programs, classes, etc. that constitute the CAI Manifesto.
State legislatures must be held accountable for any undue influence by pro-HOA special interests. CAI must be held accountable for the content of its pro-HOA advocacy.
