BREAKING: Judge Patrick McCabe issues a court order for Sissy Roberts barring Tim Baudier from mailing more fliers on Robert’s place in the Jefferson Parish organized crime family.

Of course we’re media here at Slabbed so with due respect Judge Patrick McCabe can kiss my ass as this is news so we’ll be covering this subject in depth. Our readers can make up their own minds on the veracity of Robert’s defamation claim against Tim Baudier. Hat Tip Paul Rioux. As always Slabebd reports, you decide. ~ sop

We have a Slabb-o-gram for Lee Zurich

Girod Jackson? Oh yeah we know him well.  IMHO he is cut from the same cloth as Byron Lee, Derrick Sheperd, Cedric Richmond and that clique of corrupt politicians. Fertile ground for certain Lee though following Girod and the money will probably lead you back to Team Ward/Heebe. How funny that a guy who can’t seem to build a house is able to score big time no  bid contracts from the Parish after Katrina.

You can thank me later Lee.

Career politicians are not born, they are excreted: A Sissy Roberts truth hurts update.

Given the fact that Chris Roberts has reportedly sued the Tim Baudier campaign over the flier that I’ve embedded below the fold, the only thing I can add is “Sissy” evidently did not ponder this possibility while he sat on his throne at 5AM surfing the internet with his laptop computer.

Team River Birch beclowns their clowns: A putting in the fix on the inside for River Birch update.

Paul Rioux at the Times Picayune checks in today with a report that is masterful in its nuance as Team River Birch has the full court PR press on and one again they manage to put egg on their own face as well as the Parish, specifically Public Records.  There is lots of fodder for discussion in Paul’s lengthy story but since I am time strapped I’m going to focus in on 2 items the first being that thanks to Steve Theriot and John Young it appears Jefferson Parish no longer has a cohesive, functioning public records department. Taken a step further I’ll add Paul conveys the obvious without saying it as it certainly appears the Parish Attorney’s office is simply an adjunct legal department for Freddie Heebe, Jim Ward and the River Birch Landfill. This snippet illustrates that point:

River Birch obtained the notes and other parish documents about the draft study Monday through a public records request and in turn provided them to The Times-Picayune. Parish attorneys denied a similar request by the newspaper for the preliminary study in December, citing an exemption in the state’s disclosure law for documents prepared “in anticipation of litigation or in preparation for trial.”

I will point out that normally newspapers are big on access to public records so the silence on the major problems with public records in Jefferson Parish, well reported here, means the T-P sucked on it in silence for at least the past 3 months.  I’ll add that while Jefferson Parish was stonewalling the Times Picayune while giving it all up for Freddie Heebie they also continue to retaliate against the whistleblowers and John Young is ass deep in it right along with his political blowbuddy Tom Capella and their puppets Peggy Barton and Louis Gruntz.  As long as the Parish Attorney’s office, at the behest of elected officials work for the River Birch Landfill instead of the taxpayers expect to see more such clusterfucks as the many Paul Rioux details today.
