Val Bracy has the story for Fox 8. Here is a snippet:
Parish President Steve Theriot put Vandenweghe on paid leave last month. Vandenweghe says she was accused of blogging on parish time.
A letter she received from Theriot on Wednesday says the parish has finished a preliminary investigation but the letter makes no reference to blogging.
“It appears the direction of the investigation went from my alleged blogging, which was non-existent, and my internet surfing. Now there’s a reference to my having done some work for my daughter who is in college and/or to my mediation work; mediation work I haven’t done since 2007 and that was prior to going full-time at the parish.” Vandenweghe believes Theriot’s decision to suspend her was based on bad information from other unnamed employees with ulterior motives.
Since Vandenweghe was suspended, the Parish Attorney’s Office’s public records policies have changed. Records take longer to get, if FOX 8 gets them at all and every request FOX 8 has filed is answered with a letter calling our request “overly broad and burdensome.”
