Until you dig deeper and find whom at the dealership is related to whom in the county government or more likely someone on the county board...Agreed. I don't think we have all the details. If the purchaser paid full retail, I can't imagine they keep their job long.
Everybody's happy now (except the poor schmuck taxpayers)... the town got nice new Bolts and the dealership made a nice profit.... no one's getting fired. Heck, the purchasing dept agent will probably get a promotion for not paying more than MSRP!
