I’m certain the Wino would tell you I give her too much credit but folks Slabbed’s deep throat source on all things Jefferson Parish has hung some skins on the wall and then some. I mention this because back in March when Fred Heebe filed a defamation suit against Assistant US Attorney Sal Perricone the Wino told me then Heebe never would have rolled with Perricone when he did unless he had something else better to use down the line. The Wino knows all from the depths of the gutters at Lafayette Square.
I mention this for obvious reasons, unless you’ve been under a rock since late yesterday morning that is, as bad news Friday struck with Heebe filing another defamation suit against Jim Letten’s right hand lady Jan Mann. Like the Perricone suit Heebe’s latest legal strike is bullshit from a legal standpoint but that is also besides the point as this news lead off every TeeVee newscast last night and has dominated the web site of the NOLA Media Group, first with Editor/reporter Gordon Russell followed by Rich Rainey’s in-depth piece which ran last night.
The bottom line is the evidence that “eweman”=Jan Mann looks strong albeit circumstantial. Clearly Sal Perricone had a playmate on the internet at his office as I offer the Wino’s analysis in a rare direct quotation with one minor redaction:
OK several things jump out at me… one eweman not only defends Sal…this person has knowledge from either the inside of the investigation or was in parish government in the 90’s…. those that know Mr XXX was XXXXXXXX would be a small crowd.
Next Mencken and eweman’s links have been broken by TP everyone else you can click on and it brings up all their comments…
Below is what I found looking at the River Birch articles…TP or someone want to make it hard to look at their post
Like the Board at Penn State, whoever runs WWL needs to fire Garlando. His disgrace was selling his opinions to the highest bidder. How can any listener trust his statements on air after that? How do his bosses justify him not disclosing this before he got caught? If hypocrisy is one of the most damning traits, Mr Robinemblind is the poster boy. He is a two bit journalist/artist/ con man who needs to go ASAP. If Penn State didn’t feel it was necessary to show JoePa loyalty after 46 years, WWL doesn’t owe it to Vincent Van Robinette.
They have been accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of our dollars and are charged with felonies galore. It sounds like a couple of you out there think that won’t land em in the pen. Haven’t you been paying attention? You take the king down for anything you got him on. Al Capone went to jail for taxes, remember?
Hotsaws – It would be nice if the DA could do some public corruption cases but he’d have to charge his own father in this case who was also a ghost employee – could be a little tough.
Luckily Mr. High Profile attorney won’t be able to put the fix in in federal court for Fazzio like he did for Cinel in Orleans Parish. Lemann actually referred to himself as a Dragon Slayer in his book – you got to be kidding. This guy looks like Boss Hog and hasn’t looked at a law book since he left school. He’s better than those last 3 jokers but couldn’t you have come up with somebody better on the 2nd try Fazz?
(IN THIS ONE EWEMAN DEFENDS OLD Sal)
Brlawyer – you’re a racketeering-convicted EWE admirer, a Judge Porteous impeached defender, a prosecutor basher and god knows what else. Under your type of viewpoint politicians are above the law and your way of thinking is exactly why La is 50th in everything. You don’t have to know Volz to know that under his leadership politicians and other previously untouchable criminals began to learn that their actions would not be tolerated. You complain about folks who had negative things to say about EWE as hitting below the belt but yet you deride a dead man. Hypocritical eh?
Mr. Mencken — Anyone who has had professional experiences with some (most, but not all) of the folks in the office of the EDLA U.S. Attorney would initially be surprised by your comments — until you thoughtfully provided the reference point that you admire John Volz. You’re right in one respect — it appears that the standards Mr. Volz set are still alive and well. Unfortunately, those standards aren’t consistent with fair play and professional conduct. As a few small, but important examples — the intentionally inappropriate rebuttal arguments of a particular prematurely grey-haired prosecutor from that office; the fun game of hide the-ball discovery; the artful drafting of Title III applications to remove important but contrary information — yes, you may wall have been around town for many years, but you’ve not had to represent many criminal defendants with those folks as your opponent. If you had, your opinion would be based upon something other than inexplicable admiration for Mr. Volz, such as actual litigation experiences.

Oh how wrong you are, Louis.
Prosecutorial misconduct is the practice at the US Attorney’s office. Rules don’t apply to them.
Witness coaching is routine practice. They will pressure the defendant with additional charges until he tells a story they like. The greenest FBI agent knows it is improper to contact a represented defendant. As the judge stated, it doesn’t pass the smell test.

As I sip my morning coffee, I wonder how many idiots I will encounter today. So far, the count is ONE-you. You slash at the US Attorney’s office and offer no examples of what you speak–or allege. I went to law school with John Volz and admired him and still do. I believe the standards he set in that office are still there. I’ve been around this town for many years and know of what I speak. I would be shocked, dismayed and disappointed if anyone associated with that office did what you vapidly allege. Cite examples, or go read the Society page!!!
The parish president and parish attorney and the mega Rich contractors are far worse than Whitmer. If the Feds wanted to give him a good deal to get inside scoop on the higher ups lets trust them to get it right. They are all we got standing between justice and total corrupt chaos in JP.
$250.000 loan to build a 400 square foot art studio …are the floors paved with gold? What a crock. I don’t know much about construction costs but that must be some helluva 20 X 20 room. B.S. on its’ face. Couldn’t Garlando have come up with a better story than that? If he has a lot of money in the bank then this story won’t hold water in court. Has anyone been to this palatial studio ? Does anyone know if Garland is tap city or flush?
AFTER THIS TP ARTICLE I CAN FIND NO OTHER eweman POST
