  1. Attorney Foshee seems steeped in the type of idiocy which is nothing more than warmed over “social consciousness” aka the means fit the needs lawyering. Hypocricy and disingenuity substitute for logic. The IG is a part of the Jefferson Gang of Kleptocrats, yet Foshee with unabashed and straight-faced dissembling can justify her stance with the position that the indivisible kleptocracy is suddenly divisible, and the attorney-client relationship is found, not surprisingly, with those who sign her checks.

  2. This jefferson e-mail controversy is a red herring and much to do about nothing . It makes McClintock look serious and performing his work and local politicians seem offended without prior notice. Reality unfortunately is that from the bureaucrats in Washington down to every county and parish all unethical corruption stuff involving government departments occurs through private e-mails and cells which can’t be subpoenaed by local inspector generals, media or governmental watchdog groups.

    1. LOL, although it is yet another reminder to the booboisie that for the kleptocrats they keep electing to office, hypocricy masquerades as wit, and thuggery – well, as operational doctrine.
