Yes he did and that pesky ol’ Mount Hermon Louisiana keeps coming up time and again! Ol’ Aaron is making quite the convenient whipping boy there in his Granville County North Carolina prison cell. Hows about some links folks:
Editorially Slabbed believes that Broussard purposely ordered the pump operators away from their stations so as to be able to cash in on the resulting graft opportunities. We’ll see what the jury says soon enough.
The post was insanely good except for one part but before we get to the post and part to which I refer, let’s visit with this New York Times story from 5 days ago:
The question is no longer who has been hacked. It’s who hasn’t?
The Washington Post can be added to the growing list of American news organizations whose computers have been penetrated by Chinese hackers.
After The New York Times reported on Wednesday that its computers as well as those of Bloomberg News had been attacked by Chinese hackers, The Wall Street Journal said on Thursday that it too had been a victim of Chinese cyberattacks.
And that brings me to that insanely good post I mentioned at the beginning as I have previously linked it twice on Slabbed, Jason Berry’s A corner piece of the commenter puzzle. I featured that post in part 1 of this series and I need to feature it again to set up the balance of this post, which will be both long and thorough. Jason set up 4 possibilities which would explain how Fred Heebe ended up knowing the mystery commenters opined on Dutchie Connick from the International House computer along with the email address that he used to register with NOLA.com and I summarize:
1. The IP information of this commenter was obtained from a second party marketer or vendor?……..
2. Someone within the NOLA Media Group or Advanced Publications shared the IP and identifying information with Heebe’s defense team that allowed them to track the commenter back to the hotel………
3. Advanced Publications/Nola.com servers were hacked………
4. Heebe’s team somehow knew that the commenter was using the hotel’s computer already and they put a keystroke recorder on it in order to track down the exact time and date the commenter was using it……….
After reading Drew Broach’s piece and the latest filing by the federal prosecutors in the bribery case involving disgraced former Parish President Aaron Broussard I came away with the distinct feeling I had seen the name of his original Louisiana based LLC set up to accept bribes from Parish contractors that went to buy real estate at the Trout Point resort, Nova Scotia Enterprises, LLC. The connection is Broussard’s long time associate and part owner of the Lodge at Trout Point, Danny Abel but Abel’s name does not show up in the Team USA legal filing, rather we have a redacted list of the original investors. There is some interesting things in the redacted ownership document that was presented to the court however and I bet Slabbed can shed some light on the names which were redacted from the court filing.
To set things up though I feel compelled to point out the Times Picayune trail blazed this topic, was SLAPP sued in Nova Scotia by Broussard’s property managers Charles Leary and Vaughn Perret who are Abel’s business partners that are based at the Lodge. Val Bracy at Fox 8 also had a great report on the topic which was retracted earlier this year as part of the SLAPP suit settlement in Nova Scotia filed by Leary and Perret. Through time I have also learned this same bunch has availed themselves of Canada’s defamation laws against several Canadian media outlets such as the Rural Delivery, which did an excellent expose on Leary, Abel and Perret’s attempted fleecing of the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency among others.
I have also been SLAPP sued by this same bunch in Canada but continued to investigate the topic of Broussard’s use of a real estate development in Canada to launder the alleged bribes that were paid to him. This litigation is currently awaiting a ruling by US District Court Judge Louis Guriola. They have also repeatedly threatened a new media journalist in the Town of Shelburne Nova Scotia for reporting on the court case they filed against me among other things for they simply do not want this topic discussed. With the latest Federal Court filing in the case against Aaron Broussard I think everyone now understands why Charles Leary lied to the Times Picayune in January 2010 regarding their involvement with Aaron Broussard and why their story continually changes with each revelation. More on that in a bit.
The revelations that have come over the past 90 days or so in the massive and still unfolding criminal investigation into the political corruption scandals in metro New Orleans have been absolutely stunning and for better or worse Slabbed, among other media outlets,is a part of that narrative.
There have been some things happening behind the scenes here at Slabbed corporate over the past 3 weeks and we are almost to the point where I’ll be able to disclose some of those happenings. So while we wait for the good word from the Slabbed New Media legal team, allow me to introduce one of Slabbed’s lawyers, Mr Tom Vaughn of Gulfport to the Slabbed Nation. Tom enrolled in Slabbed’s SPEECH Act case last week. He will have some company soon.
Several days ago it came to my attention that a gentleman named “Carey” S Goss was one of the land owners at the Trout Point Development. History remembers Goss as an EWE unindicted co-conspirator that is also well-remembered as one of the guys that tried wiretapping FBI agents investigating Edwin Edwards back in the late 1990’s. So along those lines it did not surprise me to see his name listed on the map of the Trout Point Development done by the good people at the SouthCoast Today that is color coded to its ownership. The map is a must see graphic as a picture is indeed worth 1,000 words.
Here in the US we have an adversarial system of law that guarantees certain due process rights. Sadly this is not the case in Nova Scotia. As proof allow me to offer this uncontested motion filed by Charles Leary on behalf of all the owners at Trout Point Lodge, silent or otherwise in the case against Fox 8 back in late April 2011. Canada, like the US supposedly has an adversarial system of law too but it is missing in Judge Muise’s courtroom as I and 2 Slabbed commenters were robbed of our due process rights by a dishonest plaintiff that lied to the Nova Scotia Supreme Court. You see folks, as a reader pointed out to me this morning, there are two kinds of lies: those of commission and those of omission.
And I verily bet poor ol’ Roy crapped his pants when he saw the other media reports on the Broussard curatorships considering he was telling Charlie and Vaughn, on Broussard’s behalf, to put Riverbend on the Lodge’s main insurance policy. Of course you say that and they will sue.
And this fixation they have with Anne Marie Vandenweghe is unhealthy IMHO. In fact it appears to be the same fixation TheRiot had for AMV considering the Fox 8 case has really been all about trying to get information on blog commenters, whether with the T-P or Slabbed. In the case of Fox 8 the girls goatherders wanted a log of every IP address that visited the story and video on Broussard. I’ll be rolling that out in due course.

Update: In light of the newest revelations about Nova Scotia Enterprises being a conduit to pay bribes to Aaron Broussard, the affidavit posted late last January is well worth the read. ~ sop 9/13/12
