Anita Lee is a love today as she checks in with a story about falsified service of process in child support cases.

Today Anita Lee checks in with an interesting story for the Sun Herald about a Jackson County Chancellor who’s had it with bogus service of process in child support cases.  I have some unique insights here though I will not be sharing them today but I do encourage those so interested in the Mississippi blogosphere to follow the money as contracts at the state agencies generally have some sort of bad political odor attached.

The 16th Chancery Court District, where Harris is a judge, has 1,200 cases pending. Harris sensed a problem from the start.

The court was prepared to handle 82 cases May 14, Harris wrote in a pleading filed with the state Supreme Court, but 77 had to be delayed for lack of summonses served. Chancellors began reviewing the cases to see what might have gone wrong.

On June 11, 100 cases had been set, but Harris discovered records summoning deadbeat parents had been falsified. In one case, the woman process server Guy Jernigan of Madison swore he had served was in fact dead. In another, the mother he supposedly served at an Ocean Springs residence was actually in a Pascagoula jail cell.

Naturally Judge Harris was not amused and Jernigan ended up in the pokey on a contempt charge and rightfully so I’ll add. But after I read the following I almost could not resist the urge to spit my morning coffee: Continue reading “Anita Lee is a love today as she checks in with a story about falsified service of process in child support cases.”

Ol’ girl Steph just can’t help herself and pumps a crooked pol by attacking the messenger: A Cedric Richmond charity looting update

Folks if you want to know one of the major reasons the greater New Orleans area has remained a cesspool of corruption for literally generations one need look no farther than to the certain New Orleans media outlets, most notably the Times Picayune. Here is a snippet from Stephanie Grace’s column which ran today:

Yet when asked, Cao supplied no evidence of wrongdoing on Richmond’s part, other than to point to a blog, The American Zombie, that offers a lot of smoke but nothing like a smoking gun implicating Richmond in any criminality.

It appears the art of investigative journalism is truely a lost one in certain old line journalism circles. At least Steph got the bezel right.

Just like with the recent Porteous impeachment it appears there are some do not want much digging done in the past. Where there is smoke there is fire just like once upon a time where there was a Coulon eating breakfast there would be a Steph eating at the Coulon trough too. Some things never change…..

Our money remains on the Zombie.

Citizens for Good Government goes on the offensive and demands Paul Connick do his job. A Jefferson Parish Political Corruption Scandal Update.

Affectionately known as the M&M sisters to their supporters and not so affectionately as crazed lunatics within certain circles in Parish Government, Margaret Baird and Margie Seemann have taken to the airways making the case that Jefferson Parish Government, as it is presently constituted is rotten to the core citing the recently released Legislative Auditor’s report which found potential payroll fraud as proof.

Yesterday we got their email blast which contained a link to a Kim Holden Fox 8 report in which Margaret and Margie were interviewed about the problems in payroll within parish government.  This blurb  from the email blast sums it up:

Citizens for Good Government believes that not only should the feds investigate the paralegal scandal, but Jefferson Parish District Attorney Paul Connick should do his job and prosecute the wrongdoers NOW. Since the DA has original jurisdiction in this case, he should either prosecute, or recuse himself and permit the Louisiana Attorney-General to prosecute the wrongdoers. After all, the Continue reading “Citizens for Good Government goes on the offensive and demands Paul Connick do his job. A Jefferson Parish Political Corruption Scandal Update.”
