That you good folks in the Slabbed Nation love documents. I happen to have a few of the kick ass variety in the document store but I’ve become ambivalent to the entire lawsuit scene. I mean heck, how many times can Aaron Broussard’s business associates file the same merit-less defamation suits against me and expect a different result. We take federal court matters seriously however as that is the only way to roll.
I gotta be careful here lest Slabbed New Media incurs the wrath of the good folks over at Psychology Today, as has previously happened when I repeated the meme that repeating the same failed action over and over again expecting a different result is textbook insanity because it isn’t. That said what is in play here is the incomparable Babs herself which is appropriate considering Slabbed’s subject matter was BrousStar and the Dragon queens.
I’m not gonna spend a whole lot of time explaining how we got to Document #37 beyond saying a few weeks ago Slabbed was first visited by Kamikaze Goats and this is my reply via my lawyers Scott Sternberg, Brodie Glenn and the good folks at Baldwin Haspel.

Racketeering claims reach into wilds of Kemptville
Aaron Broussard arrived in a New Orleans court Monday morning, where his 35-year political career ended with a 46-month prison sentence for fraud committed while he was president of Jefferson Parish, the most populous New Orleans suburb.
Broussard, who must also repay $280,000, apologized “for bringing dishonor to my position. I will pay for that dishonor for the rest of my life.” He requested he be sent to Pensacola Prison when his term starts on April 8.
Before the massive political corruption scandal that rocked all of New Orleans, Broussard was most well-known for his shameful and histrionic display of “crocodile tears” on national television in the USA following the Katrina disaster in New Orleans. It was charged by some that Broussard’s actions in the wake of Katrina caused tens of millions of dollars in damages to hundreds of New Orleans properties due to avoidable flooding.

Part 2 of this series ended with the allegations contained in the Concrete Busters lawsuit that Fred Heebe, along with several co-conspirators has been waging a coordinated campaign to unmask and otherwise harass internet commenters sharing information on the political scandal in Jefferson Parish. I’ve always pointed to the first post I did on Aaron Broussard’s curious connections to an Eco lodge in Nova Scotia Canada in January 2010 as the beginning of this saga but it really isn’t as the retaliation didn’t begin in earnest until May, 2010 as the following blast from the past should jog everyone’s memory:
Interim Jefferson Parish President Steve Theriot Citing defamation and “suffered embarrassment” allegedly caused by online comments posted at www.NOLA.com, Jefferson Parish interim President Steve Theriot has filed a lawsuit requesting the identities behind 11 user accounts on the website.
The suit was filed by attorneys Nan Alessandra and David Korn of the Phelps Dunbar law firm.
The lawsuit also references messages posted on a local web log called slabbed.wordpress.com, but doesn’t specifically identify any comments, screen names or accounts used there.
“We haven’t actually been contacted by Jefferson Parish at all, as far as official channels,” said Doug Handshoe, who co-founded that site in Mississippi. After reading the lawsuit, he said: “I think it’s certainly designed to intimidate and silence online commenters.
“We don’t intend to alter what we’re doing at all,” he said.
Let’s leave aside for the moment that only the Parish Council has the legal authority to sue on behalf of the Parish or that the taxpayers of Jefferson Parish picked up the tab for TheRiot’s jackassery but it is what it is. Later the same day I would appear on Fox 8 in a Val Bracy report which aired on the 9PM news:
