“I’ve known him for many years,” Foster said of Mouton. “I know him to be a completely honest guy.” ~ Former Gov Mike Foster as quoted by Rich Rainey at the Times Picayune as featured on the Slabbed post “The Mouton Indictment ripples across the media. Team FBI tightens its grip on Fred Heebe’s balls.”
This is what Mike really meant to say:
I reckon ol’ Murph never spoke to Fred’s ex who claims Fred liked to slap her around, especially when he had too much fire water. Then again ol’ Murph likes them Coulon boys a bunch too so I suspect his judgement on such matters is best described as poor.
I think the truth here is Murph’s administration was openly for sale to the highest bidder.
