It must be getting close to Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo time…..

And that is because Slabbed is getting site traffic from the Google search string tarpon rodeo boat sex.

Now don’t get me wrong folks, I’m completely down with a bunch of drunks having a mid summer bacchanal where there is lots public nudity and associated group acrobatics.  My beef is local politicos going on the TeeVee saying the rodeo is a family event because it clearly isn’t.

In any event potential attendees for this year’s event are getting pumped looking for info on the upcoming rodeo.

I must have been on assignment on the Goat roast beat when this story broke but it has since gone viral (for good reason) as it appears Judy Barrasso had a perv on the firm payroll. We well know Judy here on Slabbed as an Ed Liddy/Tom Wilson shoe shine girl as her firm counts Allstate as a client thus she surfaced a time or two in our insurance litigation coverage.  Judy, booubie, welcome back.  :-)

And this perv of whom I speak:

Duncan alleges she was employed as an associate attorney at Barrasso, Usdin, Kupperman, Freeman & Sarver located at 909 Poydras Street in New Orleans when she became suspicious that a co-worker was stalking her after she found mysterious white stains within her office on clothing, office furniture and the carpet.
