Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
Telemachus and ‘Gate, take a bow. Paul Rioux has the must read story on the topic Slabbed broke earlier today. We got a hat tip in fact. The list of River Birch’s lawn politicians is indeed impressive.
So the campaign cash conduit to the politicians is laid bare as expertly as the money train to Heebe’s local media shills. In other related media news we continue to get google search referrals under the search string “why was Val Bracy fired?” Damn good question IMHO.
This is a post script to Slabbed’s coverage of Paul Minor’s conviction and subsequent appeal dating back to our earlier days. My former partner in blog Nowdy had a deeper understanding of what drove some of the events behind the prosecution and while her coverage of same marched to the beat of a different drummer, there is no doubt she well added to the knowledge base of the first Mississippi judicial bribery case to be tried in federal court that would ultimately culminate in USA v Scruggs. In what would be a sign of the future direction of Slabbed as a community sourced blog, that deeper understanding of what made Paul Minor tick garnered some some quality comments from high quality people.
Without further adieu the LADB motion, made almost 5 full years after Minor’s conviction as the wheels of justice indeed turn very slow. (Hat tip to a long time reader) Continue reading “Mississippi lawyer turned convict Paul Minor recommended for permanent disbarrment in Louisiana”
We’ve covered this story since the early days folks but for you newbies and those catching up Paul Purpura at the Times Picayune checked in with a case update yesterday afternoon that also has a good synopsis of the events to date. The bottom line is a 6-year-old boy claims he was molested by Dantin, who dates Mayor Carmadelle’s momma on the side and has not yet received justice, in part because police chief Euris Dubois, a long time friend of Dantin appears to have botched the investigation.
File this one under too inbred.
Last Friday the Louisiana Board of Ethics filed formal ethics charges against
Fred Heebe, Dominick Fazzio and a host of companies under their control. The basis of the allegations can be found on this post beginning with this comment on Slabbed circa February 2011 and the subsequent comments by former Slabbed commenter Telemachus and the indefatigable Whitmergate
Telemachus is a former Slabbed commenter due to an invasion of privacy that resulted from Aaron Broussard business associate Charles Leary of Trout Point Lodge swearing perjured affidavits to a Nova Scotia court to obtain posting information on Telemachus and Whitmergate, subsequently intimidating Telemachus into silence. Sadly, Louisiana Media Company LLC aka Fox 8 was complicit in the deception of Justice Muise of the Nova Scotia Supreme Court and resulting invasion of privacy as they too knew full well who I was having appeared on Fox 8 a year earlier.
That said the legacy of Telemachus and Whitmergate’s sleuthing is apparent in the 9 page pdf, which can be found below the fold as ordinary folks make a big difference to the betterment of their community ~ sop Continue reading “BREAKING: Louisiana Ethics Board files charges against
