You betcha. 😉
New Orleans politician Aaron Broussard’s federal prosecution for fraud took another big step forward in New Orleans last week, when the disgraced Jefferson Parish president pleaded guilty to a number of charges, which he and his lawyers had previously denied.
One of the allegations made against Broussard by his ex-wife and others is that he used his ownership in Nova Scotia vacation properties and property firms to “shake down” individuals and businesses wanting to do business with the most populous parish in New Orleans.
Days later, Concrete Busters filed an amended statement of claim in an on-going suit in New Orleans, naming Kempt Wilderness Lodge Services, Trout Point Lodge Ltd. and Costa-Rica-based Cerro Coyote, SA as some of thirty-plus co-conspirators and “shell corporations” designed to hide the trail of funds passing to and through Broussard over the past twenty years.
I seem to remember a certain Goatherder swore a certain affidavit in a certain court case on this matter. Lying in sworn affidavits in Federal Court sounds serious to me but what do I know? I know I saw a subpoena duces tecum from the Ethics Board which indicates ol’ AB was in a world of shit not counting using his property in Nova Scotia as a conduit to accept bribes.

Broussard’s annual Wedding Crashers party was held December 5, 2009 at the Beach House. A sharp-eyed reader indicated that establishment was located behind and across the street from the now fabled Super 8 Motel on Clearview Parkway. Leaving nothing to chance I ran the address through the tax assessor’s database and lookie what I found.
It appears only schmucks pay property taxes in Jefferson Parish. The whispers on the street indicate Arthur Sterbcow was ready to break this aspect of the corruption scandal wide open when he was fired from Latter & Blum. Our readers can find Slabb’s coverage of same here.
