Hat tip Editilla.
Dambala over at American Zombie has been doing some great investigative work lately involving LA State Rep Cedric Richmond. He wrote this:
For the past four months, I’ve been researching a tip I received on current 2nd District Congressional candidate, State Rep. Cedric Richmond. I was told that Rep. Richmond took a chapter out of the Mose/Bill Jefferson playbook and set up at least one 501c3 (non-profit), then bilked the organization’s cash flow for personal use.
I think we have some stuff up on Slabbed that can help fuel the fire. I welcomed Ike and Sonja Spears to Slabbed and highlighted his connection to Dollar Bill and family. I imagine Ike was a member of that political machine. Jim Letten has the goods on Sonja Spears yet has not released an indictment despite the slam dunk case he has against her. Sonja is Ike’s wifey. This could also tie into them rumors we keep hearing about Civil District Court.
Regarding the LSED subpoenas were served there early this year as we reported in the context of the Jefferson Parish Political Corruption scandal. Tim Whitmer ties in via Tim Coulon and now we find out the LSED passed out grants to certain non profits. Those grants pre dated Coulon’s tenure but the later revelations on Coulon’s double dealing give us a flavor for how business is conducted there.
I now wonder who was running things back in the year 2000 at LSED. They obviously provided no oversight over their sub grantees. I bet there is a tie into with the Jefferson Political machine.
