The Sun Herald and Anita Lee slabs Mississippi Insurance Commish Chaney and the insurance bastards at Liberty Mutual

It doesn’t get much better than this as Sun Herald ace reporter Anita Lee slabs Mike Chaney for not telling the whole story about Safeco coming back to the coastal wind market here in Mississippi:

When Mississippi Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney announced earlier this week that Safeco Insurance would offer wind coverage to a limited number of customers, he neglected to mention he had approved an average statewide rate increase of 14.7 percent on homeowner policies for the company.

As Mr Chaney is a Republican and since those guys love to talk about the Ten Commandments I feel we must explore one of those commandments in connection with this post.  I’ll add that by virtue of 13 years of immersion in the Catholic Catechism I am versed in the concepts embodied in the 8th commandment (for our protestant friends it is the 9th commandment) so it is there we stop next:

Slabbed Exclusive: AROD has been released and is home. UPDATED

As of last night there was nothing on PACER but we confirmed the initial reports. Ashton has been de-computered and relieved of his weapons. His daughters have stepped up to look after his needs. We’ll continue to update this story as appropriate.

Update

I just got off the phone with Ashton.  He was lucid and well behaved. He may stop in with us later.

Ann Marie Vandenweghe speaks out. So the Times Picayune wants some answers and the truth. What an ugly truth it is.

Folks, while this is not all of the story, a few of the events leading to the Tuesday Night Massacre have finally made it to the public domain as Ann Marie Vandenweghe has spoken out to Fox 8’s investigative reporter Val Bracy.  To make certain the Slabbed Nation is clear on this I am not discriminating in favor of Channel 4 on the videos we embed as Fox 8 is not yet WordPress friendly.  I did inquire and was told the IT krewe is diligently working on the problem but is not quite there yet so I encourage the Slabbed Nation to click over and watch the interview which I’ve linked below the fold. As I alluded there are still more related revelations to come IMHO but that will happen in time. For now we know 3 things:

1. Ms Vandenweghe claims she was dismissed for blogging on a parish computer during working hours.

2. The FBI has inquired of Mr Theriot why he fired a whistleblower.

3. Once again we have that Eau de Landfill smell wafting through the Yenni Office Building.

Next stop is an excerpt from Val Bracy’s interview:

She claims some parish employees returned conflicting responses to media inquiries. She says some of those conflicting responses regarded parish information on the parish land fill deal that is under investigation by the feds. Continue reading “Ann Marie Vandenweghe speaks out.
