Question: What is going on in Nova Scotia?
Answer: Much of nothing good as business fell off drastically at chez girlz in 2010 when Aaron Br0ussard was forced from office in disgrace. In fact our friends over at The Jefferson Report recently profiled Aaron Broussard’s last financial disclosure and it appears he is selling out of the Canadian foodie concept, no doubt trying to position his finances for his legal defense.
Broussard IMHO was the key to making the 3 boutique travel lodge ventures work. The girls were the idea mongers in this equation but beyond Danny Abel in his heyday with Wendell Gauthier they evidently had champaign tastes on a beer budget. Broussard was the hypester for the 3 ventures and he raised money from select members of the general public to turn these ideas into bricks and mortar reality. The plans were in reality hatched not born of any sense of practicality as the market has passed judgement on the girl’s plan and execution of it and the verdict is not good.
The Costa Rica property has been sold and my investor source on that venture tells me not a penny has been returned there. Another Trout Point investor tells me he has not seen a single dime on his investment. I strongly suspect the girls have lots of really pissed off former investors around the NOLA area which may explain why Leary and Perret both want Canadian citizenship these days.
Perret left his momma in good hands though as Danny Abel looked after her as a surrogate son after ol’ Vaughn split years ago. The only open question and it really isn’t open in my mind’s eye is why Broussard was hyping these schemes for a bunch of gay men. And as always we are open to the possibility all the these ventures and the outside investor solicitations in particular had a Bugsy Siegel like quality to them. I think we’ll find out before this is done.
Question: Why don’t you do more on Carl Finley? He is such a grifting sleaze ball after all.
Answer: I’ve heard it both ways on Finley and it seems either folks like him pretty well or really hate him. Yes, I’ve heard the story on his disability case with the Parish but frankly while he evidently has left a few bodies on the battlefield of life we have bigger fish to fry here on Slabbed. That said judging from the conduct of Eric Paulsen’s lawyers including Finley in Paulsen’s case against State Farm I wouldn’t recommend any of them to the public. There are simply too many other fine consumer lawyers that do not cut corners in the cases they litigate.
