But before I get to that we should all consider why the very public criminal justice system is being subverted into a cesspool of secrecy based solely upon the word of the man who solicited a prostitute. To wit:
Attached is a scan of the letter you requested related to the MBI Extortion investigation. The original is on its way via the mail……If you have any further questions please feel free to call me at xxx-xxx-xxxx. I would be happy to respond to any media requests you may receive related to this case as well. Take care.
Director Larry Zwieg
You see folks at the end of the day there are only a few lawyers around NOLA that “contribute to many charities”, are a “race car driver”, “an attorney”, and “prominent businessman”. It is natural someone like that would have some political pull as we found yesterday but that does not excuse the secrecy for this is not a sex crime, at least not in Florida and per the police report we only have the victims word as there is no evidence “the crime” was ever reported in California, where the alleged perverted acts of sodomy occurred.
That said since the director of the MBI is responding to inquiries helping rule people out I thought to myself, “Hey Doug, Slabbed is media and you got Larry’s contact information and you’re pretty certain of the identity of the mystery John so…..
I publish Slabbed, a legal affairs website that covers the metro New Orleans area. We’ve been following the case involving the attempted extortion of a New Orleans attorney with interest.
My legal advisors factually dispute the MBI’s assertion this is a sex crime except to the extent the NOLA lawyer/John solicited a male prostitute off the internet in California. That said I do not think the media has to fight that battle with your office.
Yesterday I received a copy of the letter you wrote Sheriff Garcia in Houton and published same on Slabbed. Along those lines can you confirm for me that Mr XXX XXXXX has also not had any dealings with MBI?
I thank you in advance for your insights and prompt response to this media inquiry. If you wish to visit telephonically please call me at xxx-xxx-xxxx.

I’m a reasonable guy and understand that the chief MBI guy in Orlando is a busy man, but he got that letter out yesterday pronto for Sheriff Garcia, who is not media and whom has no connection to the case whatsoever. So besides Slabbed thus far being ignored what else has happened today? The alleged victim filed for a protective order with Judge Heather Rodriguez yesterday and amended that motion today. I’ll be consulting with legal on an intervention because it appears one is badly needed in the interest of transparency.
With all that said we need to visit yesterday’s links on this. I say this because it appears most readers fixated on Motorcycle racing lawyer Glenn McGovern, who is not prominent, does not race cars and to my knowledge is not known as a huge donor to charity. I did link the results of a car race in Sonoma California held beginning August 23, 2012 (another link to the race results here) and only one commenter seemed to pick up on the significance of that so for you freaks that are slow on the uptake lets visit again with the police report:
He stated this was the weekend of August 24, 25 and 26, 2012
Now maybe the mystery John flies out to California conducting personal business without booking a return flight because if he had a return ticket, Armstrong airport was open through the 27th of August. The victim tells police he couldn’t get a flight and headed to Los Angeles to solicit a male prostitute off the internet. We’re big on transparency here on Slabbed and have been fighting BS protective orders since this blog was knee-high to a grasshopper. We’re not gonna stop.
Meantime while I’ve been writing this post, Ramon Antonio Vargas over at NOLA Media Group snagged some comments from the MBI’s Zweig as the spin cycle for the mystery John runs on high. The public interest here is being trampled by a politically connected lawyer and his enablers.
