I don't understand this reference [to Renaissance]

It was a Topeka-based combination MLM tax fraud scam that sent a former IRS executive I had an especially low opinion of to the slammer. Plus, they had the noive to operate out of the revered Fleming Mansion at 10th & Gage. (Topekas would understand.) Their big pitch was being able to deduct personal expenses as business expenses, and a lot of people paid a lot of penalties. Here's a link to the last story I found. The paper had a lot of articles over the years and used to have a special archive, but I couldn't find that.
