“Will the April 25th hearing become the trial that never happened”?

Bullseye! Patsy Brumfield hit dead center with Zach Scruggs hearing could unveil additional information for A look at the transcript of Zach’s plea hearing indicates Zach’s Motion to Vacate, like Brumfield’s take on the case,  is right on target.

I didn’ t conspire to bribe Judge Lackey in connection with an arbitration order, and I would have stopped it had I known.

However, I did have some knowledge that Tim Balducci had a close personal relationship with Judge Lackey, and that he used that personal relationship to have improper ex parte contacts with the judge regarding the order. Such improper contacts, left unchecked, can – – and in this case did – – deprive the people of the state of Mississippi of fair and honest services.

Nowadays, two significant events make Zach’s “crime” what it was at the time – an ethical violation. The first of these events was Continue reading ““Will the April 25th hearing become the trial that never happened”?”

From the mailbag: Angela from Kansas City requested an interview. A stupid is as stupid does update.

Well, it got so that every piss-ant prairie punk who thought he could shoot a gun would ride into town to try out the Waco Kid. I must have killed more men than Cecil B. DeMille. It got pretty gritty. I started to hear the word “draw” in my sleep. Then one day, I was just walking down the street when I heard a voice behind me say, “Reach for it, mister!” I spun around… and there I was, face-to-face with a six-year old kid. Well, I just threw my guns down and walked away. Little bastard shot me in the ass. So I limped to the nearest saloon, crawled inside a whiskey bottle, and I’ve been there ever since. ~ Jim from Rock Ridge

Angela from Kansas City would like a further word with the Slabbed Nation:

Slabbed–still don’t know who runs the show here,but, hey . . . I was pleasantly surprised to see you post my response, although disappointed that you still hide behind a pseudonym. I do have to admit, I can see why you do this. It must be somewhat addicting to see your words generate such strong emotions from so many people. ~ Angela from Kansas City

This, in reality is a two part question so I’ve taken the liberty of breaking it down.

First the use of an internet handle or as Angela puts it, hiding “behind a pseudonym”.  I will admit to getting kinky once or twice with an Continue reading “From the mailbag: Angela from Kansas City requested an interview. A stupid is as stupid does update.”

CLUE – the Grand Jury version

According to the Times Picayune, the invitations sent  “while I was out” were “another sign that the federal investigation into Jefferson Parish government corruption is heating up”.

SLABBED kicks off the week of this “grand” event with CLUE® – the Grand Jury version.  Unlike the River Birch version, this game is all questions.

It is not altogether uncommon for subjects or targets of the grand jury’s investigation, particularly in white-collar cases, to request or demand the opportunity to tell the grand jury their side of the story.

The Times Picayune confirmed the following invited guests would be attending – Jefferson Parish Council members John Young, Chris Roberts, Elton Lagasse, Cynthia Lee-Sheng, and Tom Capella. Council members Louis Congemi and Byron Lee had not responded when the story published.

If you’d like to play, the rules are simple. Players guess questions the Grand Jury will need answered in order to have a CLUE about the role one or more of the “present” Parish leaders played in questionable events related to the Broussard administration.

Questions may address any aspect of the Broussard administration and are not limited to a Council member’s role relative to that of Broussard, his former assistant Tim Whitmer, former Parish attorney Tom Wilkinson, or Broussard’s ex-wife Karen.

Ready? The dice are rolled and the first player to ask a CLUE question will be….
