|Cristina Fernández de Kirchner|
I mention this, because there is a valuable tradecraft lesson to be learned here. Argentinian contractors would grossly over-bill for public works contracts, having been approved by Kirchner cronies. A portion of the excess was returned to the president's family, in an ingenious scheme. The contractors would book, and pay for, rentals and stays at hotel and real estate properties owned by the Kirchners, yet never actually occupying the rooms. Through this method, part of the laundered cash was kicked back to the president, who is presently under investigation for this technique.
