Make no mistake folks, this scandal will end up leading not only to John Alario but also to Former Gov Mike Foster, Billy Tauzin, David Vitter and likely Team Landrieu. Steve Theriot and daughter Wanda were last seen with doughnut glaze on their chins.
Let’s kick off the coverage with Rich Rainey at the Times Picayune who did a great job connecting Mouton to Fred Heebe. It is an open secret that former Gov Mike Foster’s administration was openly for sale so this little gem from Murphy himself at the end of Rainey’s piece was priceless:
“I’ve known him for many years,” Foster said of
MoutonHeebe. “I know him to be a completely honest guy.”
I’d love to hear ol’ Murph’s definition of honest.
Next up is last night’s lead story on Fox 8. I’m getting a clear picture that Mouton’s role in the criminal enterprise was the inside shill.
Finally, the Channel 4 lead story, which I embedded below the fold.
I suspect, given the media resources that are now being dedicated to this story we’ll have plenty of material to dissect over the coming days.
