How many convicted felons did Ashton Phelps endorse as publisher of the Times Picayune? A peeksie at why he had to be packaged out.

Here you go folks, the reason former Times Picayune publisher Ashton Phelps had to be canned is ironically contained in the editorial that heaped praise on his tenure there as publisher:

For more than 32 years, Publisher Ashton Phelps Jr. has been listed at the top of The Times-Picayune masthead on the editorial page. Newspaper editorials are written by a team, but Mr. Phelps has been ultimately responsible for our opinions. He has set a high standard, pushing for honesty and integrity in government and demanding the best for the community he loves.

Perhaps the reason Ricky Mathews has kept a low profile was that Ashton Phelps was still around, evidently unseen. I can’t wait to hear the next anti Mathews tirade from Errol and the noisemakers.

  1. An apple doesn’t fall far from the tree which bore it …. Junior Phelps is as immorally bankrupt and reprehensible as Ashton Phelps, Sr.whose personal conduct contributed to institutionalized corruption in Jefferson Parish that we have been held hostage to for the last 60 years …

  2. What queer bed fellows Lagasse and Young make.If you check out the September 27th letter from the regional DAs’ letter endorsing Julie Quinn which was just posted by Doug, Lagasse’s name appears to be a member of the Julie Quinn Executive Campaign Finance Committee ( upper left hand corner). That’s just one reason John has been extra nice to Lagasse about the Jefferson Performing Arts Center scandal.

  3. JR,
    As a former prosecutor Young is smart enough to know Broussard would ultimately chirp so it’s been shake and bake time he wants to distance himself but still give the appearance of circling the wagons to his benefactors. IMHO Mini me and Largeass are making themselves the larger targets for now but you bet Young’s hair is standing on end waiting for the enviable.

  4. One recalls the public declarations by Luke A. Petrovich decades ago during the Delta Development investigations that that the Phelps Family-o-Shills were sharing in the looting of Plaquemines Parish’s public lands with the Perez family.
