Under Broussard, who was largely a hands-off executive, Whitmer ran the 3,100-employee, $500 million administration. He possessed an encyclopedic knowledge of projects and programs and was renowned for answering emails deep into the night, after ramrodding meetings and extinguishing political fires all day.
This is absolutely true. Broussard was always off running scams for his own self enrichment while Tim Whitmer was the defacto Parish Prez under two administrations. To the underlings at Yenni, Whitmer was seen as a ruthless snake in the grass that terrorized the minion. In certain circles he is as hated as Tom Wilkinson as both used blunt force trauma as their preferred management style. Unlike Wilkinson, who is crass and vulgar, Whitmer had the Cleaver family playground spiel perfected. Both are now convicted felons.
In other news my Truitt Law Firm Mug arrived in the mail today and it is a keeper! Thanks Bobby.
Meantime in other news by my count there are at least 5 complaints filed against Danny Abel with the Louisiana ODC including the one filed by Louisiana 22nd JDC Chief Judge William J Knight.
Meantime from the cause and effect files I’ve been notified the Mississippi wing of the Goatherder Nation has sent in more Kamikaze Goats as I’ve received this dispatch from the fabled Slabbed Legal Team on the latest activity at the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.
Constitutional rights for the Boston bomber? Are you kidding? For days we watched the video footage of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev walking the streets of Boston with a backpack loaded with a homemade bomb. A growing list of circumstantial evidence points to his guilt. Yes, he is a naturalized American citizen, but we watched this drama unfold on TV and he seems to be about as guilty as you can get. So why does this heinous accused murderer deserve any rights at all?
Polls taken by local media across the country show that the public considers the bomber to be a terrorist. South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham summed up the prevailing view in a tweet: “The Law of War allows us to hold an individual in this scenario as an enemy combatant without Miranda warnings or appointment of counsel. The last thing we may want to do is to read Boston suspect Miranda Rights.” So the question is: Does the constitution protect the rights of every American citizen in the United States? First of all, were these two brothers enemy combatants or terrorists? There is no evidence so far that they received either encouragement or specific help from any outside source. They were apparently religious fanatics, but is that enough to call this a terrorist attack?
If these two distorted and warped young men are to be labeled terrorists or enemy combatants as Senators Graham and McCain have suggested, then what’s the difference between what they did and what happened in Tucson, Columbine, Aurora and Sandy Hook? At the Sandy Hook elementary school, 26 people were shot and killed including 20 children. Was the shooter, Adam Lanza a terrorist? At a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, 70 people were shot and 12 died. And how about the Tucson shooting by Jared Loughner, where 19 people were shot including Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, and where 6 were killed? Ten years ago two teenagers killed 12 students, a teacher, and themselves at suburban Denver’s Columbine High School. As horrendous as these killings were — were any of them really acts of terrorism?

Especially the communication I received yesterday in response to the post I did on the donnybrook Division D judicial race between Hilary Landry and Scott Schlegel via the Telefunken U47 which said:
The victim that is speaking on the commercial for Hilary Landry also made a commercial for Debbie Villio in her 2006 race against Donnie Rowan – same victim, same case, almost the same exact script. Buisson was also Villio’s manager.
This person is speaking of the TeeVee commercial and mailer disseminated by Team Landry featuring Cathy Sheppard Jacob, whom evidently surfaces in every Greg Buisson run judicial campaign to trash one or the two remaining candidates, invariably associated with the District Attorney’s office by local political custom. Ms Jacobs appears to be a paid shill monetizing a messy divorce beginning with the first Debbie Villio campaign for Judge.
That’s well and good, Landry was a distant second in the primary election and taking the low road works or else political candidates wouldn’t do it. That said, while Scott Schlegel plays the part of squeaky clean assistant prosecutor I hear this from a lawyer that whose opinion I trust:
I think Schlegel will be a bad judge for plaintiffs
He may be – there is a Landry Ad running saying how the overwhelming majority of the cases heard in the 24th JDC are civil cases, an area of the law an assistant criminal prosecutor would have little experience. More often than not these criminal type lawyer cats tend to default to some simple minded Heartland Institute talking point and use it as a major part of the heuristics process involved with adjudicating a civil case. What you end up on the other end is something like Versai Management v Clarendon America Insurance Company et al and that is not justice folks.
Regardless Team Landry is pulling out all the stops as the campaign heads into the final stretch. The food fight should be fun to watch.
