In Louisiana, DAing is a literal gold mine…….

Its frankly damning as the folks over at the New Orleans Advocate are chootin’ fish in a barrel:

DA’s gold business included partnership with convict ~ Sara Pagones and Katie Moore

This is the part that got everyone’s attention:

They struck a deal under which Moseley and Reed, through their brand-new business, would provide Cazaubon cash to buy gold in exchange for a hefty chunk of Cazaubon’s profits.

    People post all sorts of things in comments. You find delusions, confusions, fabrications, commentary, opinions, allegations; and, occasionally, a fact or two. A few comments I found interesting at this article conveniently linked by the blog op. No idea where they fall on the comment continuum. At this time I’ll just repost one of them here. This is an example of the type of allegation that could be subject to verification, and might be worthwhile to explore.

    The real stink started when Covington PD set up a DWI checkpoint down the road from an establishment hosting a fundraiser for Walter Reed. So, this is a vendetta from Reed being carried out by your dear mayor. La. politics at its best!
