Let’s play Liar, Liar Pants on Fire – the political version – Oops, we need rules!

Inspired by a recently published photograph of someone looking a bit like Jim Carrey with big hair (real big hair), one of SLABBED-nation’s faithful suggested we entertain ourselves with a game of Liar, Liar!

I was game for the game until I tried to write the rules and realized how far we’ve come from the days when there telling a lie was stating something that was in any way an untruth.

For example, I’ve been told that what I called a lie in a pleading from Katrina litigation was “legal advocacy”; i.e., the responsibility of an attorney to represent his client’s position in the best possible light.  Then there’s the matter of a “white lie” championed by none other than the late, outspoken mother of former President Jimmy Carter, Miz Lillian – and, speaking of former Presidents, there’s the “but I didn’t inhale” and “I didn’t have sex with…” President Clinton and the “weapon of mass destruction” himself, George Bush.

With the advent of spin “true facts” is no longer oxymoronic; so, if anyone wants to play, present a lie, the “true facts” and provide documentation.

  1. I’ve taken taken the liberty of editing Ashton’s comment to add: (1) a link to the statement of Lt. Reed that he emailed to me earlier this evening; (2) a link to the post of his Appeal brief with the photographs he mentions as an exhibit; and (3) paragraphs!

    Preliminarily, I wish to thank “nowdoucit” and her colleagues with SLABBED for inviting this UNBELIEVABLE opportunity to “vent” about lack of candor, and worse, in a variety of milieus.

    Since I was a lawyer until crossing paths with Lemelle, who is where he is today SOLELY because of his skin color (no white man as lazy, stupid and corrupt as he is could ever have been confirmed as a Federal Judge), I will address the legal system in which I worked (with moderate success) until recently. I can say that in over 35 years, pre-KATRINA, and since KATRINA (about 5 years before I was disbared), I NEVER saw one litigant or attorney “disciplined” for being caught in “WHOPPERS”. I kid you not. But then, when you have Judges sitting on the Bench who routinely violate their oaths of office, what do you expect? And most of my practice was in Federal Court, so I can say from experience that as bad as Federal Court was, and continues to be, State Court was even a BIGGER cesspool.

    So let me tell my story, with apologies because it involves me, personally. A number of the Members of “The SLABBED Nation” have chastised me for signing my name “Ashton O’Dwyer a/k/a ‘The WHITE Henry Glover'”, saying, “Poor Mr. Glover was KILLED, and you’re still alive.” Let me explain: Mr. Glover’s MURDER was “covered-up” by so-called “law enforcement” for about 4 years. However, justice appears to have been done, and the convicted defendants face about 40 years for obstructing justice in Mr. Glover’s case. The obstruction of justice and “cover-up” in my case continues to this day because the United States Department of “Injustice”, the Federal Bureau of Constipation”, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the U.S. Marshall’s Service, and a large number of State law enforcement agencies, from the State Police to the Department of Public Safety and Corrections (as well as the NOPD and Canizzaro’s office, who “suck the dicks of the Feds”, and who are gutless dogs), want what was done to me to be “swept under the rug”, and to remain there, BECAUSE VIRTUALLY ALL OF THEM WERE COMPLICIT.

    So my reference to “Henry Glover” is justified for a number of reasons: (1) If I were a Negro pimp or drug addict (Didn’t Mr. Glover have a record? Precisely what was he doing when he was shot?), the the U.S. Department of “Injustice” and the Federal Bureau of Constipation would be ALL OVER my case. Instead, I am ignored with the lie: “Dear Mr. O’Dwyer: Thank you for sending the documentary materials (which we are returning to you). However, we do not find any evidence of a prosecutable civil rights violation, and we are, therefore, closing our file.” (2) If the “goons” who brutalized and tortured me at Camp Amtrak had been equipped with TASERS in addition to pepper-spray and 12-gauge shotguns loaded with beanbag rounds, then I’d be as dead as Mr. Glover, because I’d have been “tasered” to death. I aver that the “goon” psychopaths and sociopaths who pepper-sprayed me and shot me NEVER in their law enforcement careers EVER pepper-sprayed or shot a man with beanbag rounds as much as they did to me (Thank God for my military training!). If they had TASERS I’d be dead, because they’d have tasered me to death. (3) The “injustice” to Mr. Glover and his Family included LIES, OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE, and COVER-UP by law enforcement.

    The very same things are involved in my case, but have received no attention from the Federal Government, because their people were and are complicit. I have transmitted to “nowdoucit” a document which purports to be dated September 20, 2005, the date of my abduction, brutalization, torture and false imprisonment. The document is signed by an idiot named Lieutenant Matt Reed, Louisiana State Penitentiary Tactical Unit (these were some of the “goons” at Camp Amtrak, although there was a large Federal contingent, including people from the U.S. Department of “Injustice”, the Federal Bureau of Constipation and the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the U.S. Marshall’s Service, among other Federal employees). Indeed, Camp Amtrak was being “run” by the Department of Homeland Security. Reed is an idiot, because he allowed his name to be affixed to a BLATENTLY FALSE OFFICIAL REPORT DOCUMENTING ACTS OF VIOLENCE AGAINST AN INNOCENT U.S. CITIZEN. “Numb nut” Reed ADMITS in his report that he shot me 3 times with beanbag rounds while I was inside a Guantanomo-style “dogcage” (he’s “wrong”; I was only shot twice outside), and that I was pepper-sprayed once. But “nowdoucit” also has the photographs of my wounds which clearly reflect that I was shot no less than 12 times, 10 times indoors at Camp Amtrak, and twice outdoors, while in the dogcage.

    How can “dumb fuck” Reed reconcile the 3 shots he ADMITS firing at me, with the 12 wounds which are plainly visible in the photographs? There’s “no way” that 3 equals 12, even for the NOPD, much less “the Louisiana State Penitentiary Tactical Squad”. Additionally, although I have no documentary proof of this, I was not pepper-sprayed once, but a total of 30 to 40 times, both indoors and outdoors. And as for the so-called “Emergency Medical Technician”, two people were sent to my dogcage around 1100 or 1200 hours. In so many words, I told them to go FUCK themselves. Lastly, “nowdoucit” will note that “head-up-his-ass” Reed references “Lt. Col. Lemartiniere (Tactical Shift Commander)”. I would welcome the opportunity to take a look at these DEGENERATES in a line-up, or even to look at photograpgs of the miscreants who were on watch when I was brutalized and tortured. I will NEVER FORGET THE FACES OF THESE MOTHERFUCKERS.

    Ashton O’Dwyer a/k/a “The WHITE Henry Glover”.

    P.S. I’m not even going to “dignify” Reed’s “report” of my alleged intoxication (why didn’t they document it with videotape, a field sobriety test, or the drawing of blood?) or alleged attempts to climb the fence. As for “random threats” I really don’t know what Reed means, but I was never charged with threatening anyone. While still indoors, I informed all of the goons that “Ashton O’Dwyer is now your worst FUCKING nightmare!” Little did I know that “the fix was in” (already) in my case, because “the Feds” were in on what was done to me. AROD.

  2. We have had a close loss of life as well. Is killing just a part of all that takes place with government gone wild? Back to the game. I say the court of corruption owes my family big bucks. They say no. They say you were dismissed in January of 1998. Damn, so all those documents from August 1998 drafted and filed in court by countless attorneys and judges regarding settlement offers and failed trials were for the sole purpose of harrassment. Mass statewide harrassments. Is that a hate crime?

  3. John Young:

    The Lie:
    I didn’t know anything about anything that was going on during my years as a Council Member on the Jefferson Parish Council, but trust me I am on top of everything as Parish President.

    6+ years on the Council
    Voted not once but several times for the River Birch ‘deal’
    Voted to defend the indefensible by hiring lawyers to fight Simon and protect Kerlec
    Voted to hire lawyers to fight Whistleblowers ( Melancon, Robinson, Vandenweghe)
    Fired Whistleblower Vandenweghe
    Retains Peggy Barton a known conspirator with Whitmer, Wilkinson and Broussard in the paralegal scandals

    So this is transparency and accountability and putting Integrity back in JP government?

    Liar Liar Pants on Fire.

  4. Way to go, Unslabbed. I was beginning to wonder if anyone would read beyond the title!

    In that regard, this reminder to the SLABBED-nation: As a courtesy to others, please use the Open Thread to comment on matters not addressed in a post.

    Now, back to the subject of liars – with and without “big hair” – and corruption in Jefferson Parish.

  5. Pel, great link! Speaking of “lies”, I found Notseaux’s comment revealing (particularly since it supports the possibility that one of those things “percolating” could have led to the revision of the Doomsday Plan).

    Jennifer Sneed Heebe may well have voted on many items related to her and her husband’s business.

    If, as the evidence is beginning to indicate, the River Birch Ripoff was concocted and percolating since Coulon’s Presidency then Mrs. Sneedie-Heebie voted many times on issues directly and indirectly affecting her and her husband’s business(es).

    Freakie Freddie would not, IMO, hesitate to put the Missus under the bus. His attitude regarding women precedes him, just ask his ex-wife and girlfriends.

    So Jennifer Sneed-Heebe may well have been implicated many years ago

  6. Mouton and Heebe have been ‘buds’ since 2003 through the present? Cancelled checks to show for it?

    Looks like Jennifer Sneed Heebe merits note here:

    The Lie: I am resigning to spend more quality time with my family, and in the meantime I am recusing myself from any votes on my family’s business(es).

    Too late Missus Sneedie-Heebie-Jeebies:
    From the time your father, BK Sneed, left Jefferson Parish employ and went to work for Willow Inc you violated your public duty and trust with any votes taken relative to ANY Ward or Heebe endeavor.

    And time permitting I believe evidence of ‘favorable’ votes by you for ‘friends of Freakie Freddie’ ( such as votes to give legal work to the Butlers or Parish contracts to affiliates of your family) could be found in the thousands.

    Squeaky Clean Sneedie-Heebie? I think NOT.

    Liar Liar Pants on Fire.

  7. Not so fast Pelican, there is a bit more to say about Connick’s punk, el Presidente Young…

    THE LIE: In a letter addressed to all unclassified Parish Employees, dated October 26, 2010 Young stated:

    “As Parish President, I am committed to surround myself with the best possible staff…”


    “It is our intent and commitment that this Administration will maintain the highest ethical standards…”

    THE TRUTH: As long as Peggy Barton, along with David Fos, and the remaining Wilkinson posse, namely Nicole Tomba, John Luck, Jeremy Dwyer, Greg Giangrosso, Nicole Amstutz et al remain the
    public’s confidence will never be restored nor will the Jefferson Parish Attorney’s Office have the integrity to competently represent the taxpayers of Jefferson Parish.

    Connick’s punk, Young, is a liar, liar… and his pants are on fire !

  8. THE LIES:
    “I guess I’m the whistleblower hotline,” Young said Thursday. Anything substantive evidence will be sent to the proper authorities for a further look, he said.

    “We are trying to make a difference, and we’re taking every allegation seriously,” he said. “But at the same time we want people to be responsible in making these allegations.”

    Young said he is cooperating with the federal investigation into Broussard’s administration. In a memo to his staff, he repeated U.S. Attorney Jim Letten’s request, delivered in January to acting Parish President Steve Theriot, that all documents be preserved.

    “This is designed to continue our zero-tolerance approach to illegal and unethical activity.”

    Jefferson Parish President John Young launches whistleblower hotline
    Published: Wednesday, February 02, 2011, 11:01 AM Updated: Wednesday, February 02, 2011, 2:29 PM
    By Paul Rioux, The Times-Picayune

    Anne Marie Vandenweghe filed her original WhistleBlower suit in Feb 2010 and the amended claim in April 2010 with the JP Personnel Board in the Public Record. The factual allegations set forth by AMV regarding Illegal Political Activity by Parish Employees and Elected Officials; Payroll Fraud in the Parish Attorney’s Office; and River Birch have all been substantiated by the La. Legislative Auditor, FBI, US Attorney and very soon the Grand Jury.

    What did John Young do…he voted with the other Council Clowns, 7-0, to hire Phelps Dunbar to file SLAPP proceedings against AMV, THE WHISTLEBLOWER… John Young, like the incompetent law firm he hired, failed in there duty to exercise the due diligence owed to their client, THE TAXPAYERS OF JEFFERSON PARISH…no investigation was ever done by the Officials of JP or it’s counsel based on the factual allegations of AMV’s Whistleblower Claim. John Young DID NOTHING but to fire AMV and keep Peggy Barton, Louis Gruntz and David Fos on the payroll!!!

    And Young is lying now as he continues to retain Peggy Barton, Louis Gruntz and David Fos in the Parish Attorney’s Office. All played a major part in the cover up of the illegal political activities of employees; both the para-legal and non-elector Asst PAs; and in the on going criminal conspiracy by Parish Officials, elected and appointed, in collusion with the principals of River Birch (Heebe and Ward), to award an illegal landfill monopoly.

    Additionally,Young as Councilman-at-Large, had been put on notice by the CFGG of the destruction of public records as set forth by Lonnie Robinson’s whistleblower claim. Young AGAIN DID NOTHING ! Even worse, as Young had in the case of AMV, he sat back, and allowed these people good people be harassed and retaliated against by his colleagues and Employees known to him.

    Connick’s punk, JOHN YOUNG, is ‘the’ LIAR, LIAR…and considering all that hot gas coming from his mouth I wouldn’t be surprised that instead of just his pants on fire, he’d blow up…

  9. THE LIES:
    “…in order to fulfill my commitment to the citizens of Jefferson Parish. I am requiring that every unclassified employee, part-time and full-time, submit their resignation by signing the attached form and returning it to the Parish President’s office…”

    “It is imperative that we establish a clear line of communication between between the Appointing Authority, the Parish president, and the unclassified employees.”

    John Young has no balls. Instead of using both an illegal and bully method to fire a so-called “at-will employee”, he could have simply called into his office any one of the individuals he was not going to retain, and tell them to their face just that. And even so, that “at-will” employee is entitled to due process…a pre-disciplinary hearing, if they so choose to opt for such a procedure…the same due process hearing that Broussard and the Council, Young included, on the advise of Louis Gruntz and Clem Donelon, insured Whitmer that he was to be afforded !

    This BS of an employee signing a resignation in advance of any action taken by Young is clearly a threat of loss of one’s livelihood and violation of:

    LaRS 14:122. Public intimidation and retaliation.

    A. Public intimidation is the use of violence, force, or threats upon any of the following persons, with the intent to influence his conduct in relation to his position, employment, or duty:

    (1) Public officer or public employee.

    And what purpose would it be for Young to keep some employee’s signed resignation in his drawer but for possible intimidation…some future quid pro quo.

    “While we are still in the process of reviewing and studying this analysis, the report shows the proposed contract with River Birch would not save the parish any money, but, in fact, will cost the Parish an additional $8.7 million over the 25-year period,” Parish President John Young said in a written statement that referred to the low-end savings estimate for keeping the parish dump open.

    The parish study said that closing the publicly owned dump would make neighboring River Birch the only landfill in the New Orleans area, leaving Jefferson “vulnerable to price increases without the moderating force of competing local landfills.”

    This is a very disturbing statement and says much about Capella being a corruptive force on the Council. By “…the people’s business…'” it is obvious he means his people; the campaign contributor contractor/consultants whom he votes consistently to award business to. The quid pro quo conduct that this 7-0 voting Council of Clowns is infamous for.

    That Capella has “…full confidence…” in Peggy Barton, ‘Wilkinson in Drag’, is reason enough to question his judgment and his motives. By having Barton remain he is assured that his people are not bothered by Parish laws and regulations, as Barton is every bit the “facilitator” of corruption using the JP Parish Attorney’s Office as her former Boss was. Motive.

    For Capella to support Barton, who is a principal co-conspirator, along with Wilkinson and Gruntz, in the illegal payroll fraud that was rampart while she was 1st Deputy Asst PA and Supervisor of both the para-legals and Asst PAs would suggest that Capella’s ethical Judgment is seriously impaired, if not in fact he is lacks. Even now, as the Federal Investigation has progressed to the Grand Jury stage of the para-legal payroll fraud, ie Karen Parker Broussard and the participants in the River Birch criminal conspiracy, Capella remains silent as to why Barton is still employed by the Parish of Jefferson. In fact it is his omission, both as a lawyer and Council member that makes him also culpable in the criminal conduct of Barton. Misprision of a Felony.

  13. Me too Sock.

    Capella takes credit for “passing a law creating an IG in JP.”

    Is there an IG in JP???

    News to me.

  14. Gentlepersons: This is called Liar Liar Pants on Fire for a reason.

    Nowdy set the ground rules: state the person, the lie, and the evidence of the lie.

    We are all nauseated by Capella’s commercial…the old adage is holding here…when you have a client who is an idiot and cannot talk without flubbing or being a mumble mouth you have a professional do a voice over while you show your idgit client. Proof positive that Capella is an idgit …. now back to why he is a liar.

  15. Tom Capella

    THE LIE:

    That he, Capella, has any ethical standards that would support his claim of being on the forefront of an Inspector General Office for the Parish of Jefferson. This assertion from a man who defers to the judgment of Wilkinson, the incompetent and corrupt former Parish Attorney who resigned.

    “Four council members eventually said they favored opening the contracting process, against the legal advice of Parish Attorney Tom Wilkinson, who denied The Times-Picayune’s request for the documents under the state Public Records Act.”

    “Wilkinson wrote in a letter to the newspaper that a parish ordinance prevented him from releasing proposals for the five-year, multimillion-dollar residential garbage deal that is expected to rank as one of the costliest in the South. He said the public could review only the winning proposal, but not until the council votes to adopt it.”

    “Capella agreed with Wilkinson and said he would abide by the parish ordinance that keeps the proposals secret until the council awards a contract.”

    What Parish ordinance? Where’s the citation? How does it read? Is it applicable to this situation? Is this based upon only Wilkinson, or Barton or Gruntz telling us what the law is? Is there any other opinions about this ordinance?

    The fact is, there is no Inspector General Office established in the Parish of Jefferson. With Capella voting to appoint political hacks like Gruntz, Gandolfi and Hudson on the committee to control the imput of how this office would be funded and what scope of powers the office would possess made the exercise meaningless except for a sound bite that Capella hijacked; using this “initiative in limbo” in his present campaign.

    The following constitutes the report of the Advisory Committee for the Establishment of an Office of Inspector General presented to the Jefferson Parish Council on September 22, 2010. The report addresses in order each of the areas of concern about which the Council requested the Committee to make recommendations in Section 2 of Resolution No. 113859. The members of the Committee wish to state that the Committee is willing to reconvene to further discuss any aspects of this report should the Council desire any further input from the Committee on the matters discussed herein.

    The OIG Committee at its second meeting voted affirmatively on the issue of the desirability of establishing an Office of Inspector General for Jefferson Parish. The Committee at that time deferred consideration of the issue of the feasibility of establishing an Office of Inspector General based upon the identification of an adequate independent funding source for the operations of the office, an issue that will be addressed in greater detail elsewhere in this report. At the outset of its meetings and discussions, however, the OIG Committee did agree that the establishment of an Inspector General

    THE LIE:

    That Capella, a JP politico thug and retirement junkie, would be concerned about an increase in taxes by way of increased debt is an unmitigated LIE ! And as a side note, why are most politicians like Capella, always pandering to the Veterans, when they themselves never served their country in the military !


    When faced with having to make hard political decisions dealing with economics like staying within the budget, read what Capella does as quoted in this T-P article:

    “Now Capella has signed on as a co-sponsor of the new plan. Finishing the construction faster, he said, will let the parish move into maintenance-only mode more quickly then look for leeway in the beautification fund to give businesses a break on their leases.”

    “Hopefully down the road, we can save the people some money,” Capella said.”

    Wishful thinking there Tommy…Now he wants to change his Council Clown costume to Chehardy’s Court Jester…and he wants the taxpayers of Jefferson parish to elect him to what amounts to an accounting job…I think not…

    And please don’t mention Veterans as though you have any compassion for their service to our country…your mentor Chehardy and his father trampled on the graves of of soldiers who died and spit in the face of soldiers now serving to insure the freedom of free and democratic elections by their subtrfuge of American ideals on that fateful Friday afternoon so many years ago…sort of like what you did making the deal with Young…fuck you Capella.

    Morgan wrote a letter on his official letterhead for his step-daughter extolling her virtues and when confronted recently callously explained he did not consider her ‘his’ child so there was no conflict.

    Chris Roberts , whose 2 children also attend Gretna #2 came out early as the Spokesperson for the parents of children who received no special consideration and got in fair and square. Until that is it was pointed out his maybe didn’t quite get equally tested or scored , at which time Chrissy crawfished and whined plaintively that his wife handles all that stuff and he has no knowledge about it.

    Capella seconded Lagasse’s motion to appoint Nancy Cassange as director of WJMC. The unanimous approval came the same week that West Bank council members received complaints about Cassagne not meeting the requirements set out by the state Department of Health and Hospitals.

    But Parish Attorney Tom Wilkinson and hospital lawyer Peter Butler Jr. said they determined that Cassagne fit the standards set by federal regulations, state law and DHH Code.

  23. Tom Capella

    THE LIE:

    Tom Capella says he is uniquely qualified to be elected Assessor for Jefferson Parish.


    Why ? Because a deal was cut between Chehardy and Connick to avoid a bloodbath race between Capella and Young for Parish President. Polls reflect Capella has negatives in the mid-sixty percent when his name is set along side of Young; and in the high fifty percent in general. So because he is already a political franchise within the JP Politico Thug Elite, he deserves to be anointed to another public office, to continue playing the’ barred incumbent’ merry-go-round…akin to a political musical chairs…to be put in another political office…any office, by any means !

    Capella is not a board qualified CPA, certified Appraiser or licensed real estate broker…he’s just another lackey lawyer pumped up by the machine politicians and their cronies: Chehardy, Connick, Normand, the Coulons (Tim and Chris), the Porteous Brothers, Whitmer, Wilkinson, Hubbard, Broussard, Ward and Heebe, Alario, Larry Sisung, Jr., John Georges and all the contractor/consultant/lawyer campaign contributors that Capella always voted to award Parish contracts.

    That the tag-team phone calls among 6 of the 7 Council Clowns (Roberts, Congemi, Capella, Lagasse, Lee-Sheng, Lee) were not in violation of the open meetings law; and yes, Young was nor privy to the conversation(s) or decision; that Stevie ‘blunder’ was surprised by the 6-0 vote to sit him as interim Parish President.

    And as result of the fact that Sissy can’t keep his mouth shut, we get this quote:

    “He’s got experience in rooting out conflicts in government,” Councilman Chris Roberts said.

    If you believe that bullshit Roberts insulted us with, then you deserve to have this lying pig as an Elected Official.

    TheRiot’s ETHICAL CONFLICTS are legendary…which, by way of this illegal appointment he may have surpassed his mentors, John Alario and Larry Sisung,Jr. Whether is facilitating his homestead friends to break the rules of the Home Mortgage Authority; doing business for Coastal while La Legislative Auditor; making $HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS on land deals with WJMC on votes he helped direct toward his property for future expansion; having his daughter hang out at JP Boards to protect Coastal interests while he was Parish President; and the classic, having the taxpayers pick up his tab in legal fees when he had Phlips, Dungmore file, on his personal behalf, a lawsuit against the blogosphere claiming his reputation was damaged…that’s an oxymoron in fact !

    Now he and the kid have put together a lobbying firm to work for the La Atty General and thr La Legislator Office…what ? I can only imagine that Butler, Jr. is now on a full time retainer.

    No problem, just call Peter Butler, Jr. and he’ll deal with the morally bankrupt Ethics Commission; meld out an opinion saying that anything TheRiot does is honkey-dorey; then the Commission can rubber stamp their acquiescence in this corrupt nonsense.

    Hell, mini-me, your good buddy TheRiot is the root of most conflicts in Louisiana !

    LIAR, LIAR your pants are on fire…

  27. Aaron Broussard

    THE LIE:

    Several weeks Aaron tells me that he’s raising money for Sissy Roberts because he (Roberts) is the only true reform candidate in Jefferson Parish politics. Hmmmmmm

    Two weeks ago Aaron tells me he expected that he would be indicted by today. Hmmmmmm

    Last week Aaron tells me he is opening a new law firm in Kenner, comprised of specialists in 6 fields of law. Aaron said that his role was going to be the rainmaker and flood the office with business !


    I hadn’t talked to Aaron yet this week, so I have no news as to his future plans at this moment.

    But what I do know is that Aaron is a…

    LIAR, LIAR, and Jefferson Parish is on fire !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  28. “Tommy” (as Pegs Barton, Nicole Tomba, and the rest of his remaining posse in the Parish Attorney’s Office refers to him) WILKINSON

    THE LIE:

    QUESTION by Val Bracy: A year or so ago you got a $40,000 THOUSAND DOLLAR raise…

    ANSWER by ‘Tommy’: about a year ago…

    QUESTION by Val Bracy: That’s a lot for one year…

    ANSWER by ‘Tommy’: It is Val…

    QUESTION by Val Bracy: What did you do do to earn that ?….


    QUESTION by Val Bracy: Don’t most people get raises in, you know, a few thousand dollars a year, maybe a 4-5% cost of living ?



    ANSWER continued by ‘Tommy’: MR. BROUSSARD OFFERED me the raise. I ACCEPTED the raise…”

    QUESTION by Val Bracy: Do you know of any other Parish employee that’s received a $40,000 THOUSAND DOLLAR raise in one year ?

    ANSWER by ‘Tommy’: NO I HAVEN’T.

    The idea that Tom Wilkinson presumed to know what ethics are and/or performed his duties as would have been expected of a professional and competent Parish Attorney is delusional on his part; and EVERYONE KNOWS THAT AS A FACT !

    I suggest that the FBI and the US Atty’s Office ask BROUSSARD why he would have offered WILKINSON such an illegal and exorbitantly obscene raise in the first place !!!

    Hey Cornac could it be…ANSWER: River Birch…QUESTION: What is a criminal conspiracy amonst JP Officials, both elected and appointed, in collusion with the principals of of River Birch, Ward/Heebe, to award an illegal landfill monopoly ?

  29. Tom Wilkinson
