July 25, 2012 was the day I made my first official visit to the Yenni Building and the assistant Parish Attorney that was initially assigned to handle public records for Team Young/Foshee was singing her swan song as she had to leave due to the no longer meeting the residency requirements in the Parish Charter resulting from nuptials and relocation to another Parish in the area.
We got on quite well though initially I was very aware that Slabbed and the guy behind it was a huge curiosity inside the Yenni Building. Eventually we ended up chatting about AROD among other subjects while I selected and scanned records from Box 3. Time literally flew by.
In any event here are the files from that day from the early post Aaron Broussard days in the Spring of 2010 when Steve Theriot was Goatherder in Chief, some published on Slabbed, others not until now. Enjoy.

Allow me to summarize the latest Waste Management lawsuit against Jefferson Parish:
1. From 2007-early 2010 Jefferson Parish was run by self admitted felons
2. Even after those self admitted felons resigned in disgrace TheRiot continued their dirty work during his interim reign of terror.
3. Now the cat is out of the bag so Mini-me is gonna have to write another check with other people’s money, about the only thing the guy is good at. That is, of course if him and Elton LaGasse don’t burn another $500,000 defending the indefensible paying the hollow suits at Phelps Dunbar before they write that check to Waste Management.

A quick review – Cockroaches:
1. Operate in the shadows and under the cover of darkness.
2. Operate as a group.
3. Scatter when light or sun shine is applied.
You should click here because the harassment first became manifest when former NOLA City Attorney Bob Ellis threatened Jason Berry at American Zombie with a SLAPP suit.
Less than one year later Interim parish Prez Steve TheRiot sued the blogosphere conducting a witch hunt for certain online critics. Slabbed was mentioned in TheRiot’s suit in a clear shot across our bow.
And then there are the SLAPP suits from Canada, well covered here on Slabbed.
The dots are all out there folks, they just need connecting.
I’m getting word the gang spent 90 minutes or so behind closed-doors discussing the Vandenweghe v Parish of Jefferson. For those of you catching up Anne Marie Vandenweghe was harassed and ultimately fired from her job in the Parish Attorney’s office because she was seen as cooperating too vigorously with federal prosecutors investigating Broussard era corruption.
To the extent Parish Prez John Young is due before the cameras next week for his video deposition I am seeing hints on the PACER docket that, just like the post Katrina insurance litigation, Phelps Dunbar is incapable of trying a case without resorting to cheating and trickery as they have evidently been sandbagging emails in discovery. Thank goodness I posted a few specimen emails discussing AMV in late July as it is my understanding Phelps Dunbar initially said none existed.
Worth noting is that one of Mary Landrieu favorites for US Attorney, Kim Boyles, was an early participant in both TheRiot’s ill-advised lawsuit against the blogosphere and in the continued retaliation against Vandenweghe. Can you imagine what a disaster this cesspool lovin’ miscreant would make as Jim Letten’s replacement! Speaking of that I wonder if Mike Magner will be testifying in the upcoming trial? 😉
Newbies can catch up on this part of the corruption scandal in Jefferson Parish by clicking here:
Been holding this bad boy for a while waiting for the right time to flash a piece of Slabbed’s document cache. No political cesspool would be complete without the daughter of a
corrupt former 24th JDC Judge west bank state representative handling environmental matters for the Parish when the Parish was putting in the fix on the mother of environmental matters in the River Birch Landfill. Following the money leads to some very interesting places. 😉
What I do not understand is why TheRiot turned to the Parish’s Homeland Security people instead of Human Resources when he sent Anne Marie Vandenweghe home back in February, 2010 while claiming she was a deadhead employee that did nothing but blog on company time?
She obviously was doing something because she had this hard drive with copies of all sorts of documents that she gathered for the federal grand jury investigating the River Birch Landfill and the gang desperately wanted to see what she had given Team Fed. By February Continue reading “Da Banana gets AMV’s personnel file while the gang plotted to figure out what she had given the Federal Grand Jury”
Actually we’ll let Team Vandenweghe connect those dots. (Recent Slabbed coverage here, here and here). Hot off the presses folks:
For true it is folks. For purposes of this post please do not assume Ms Vandenweghe’s lawyer, Bobby Truitt has spoken with Slabbed on this subject because he hasn’t. That said there is some very interesting street talk over by the Super 8 Motel on Clearview Parkway concerning the witness list in the case, which has not been made public on PACER. I guess the most impressive name circulating in the rumor mill is Fred Heebe himself along with his lap dog Steve Theriot, who I contend was installed as interim Jefferson Parish Prez after Aaron Broussard resigned in disgrace in order to protect the financial interests in the landfill associated with Louisiana Senate President John Alario aka “Big Dawg”. Theriot aka “Lil’ Pup” is a political protege of Alario.
In any event all I know for certain is settlement talks in the case have collapsed and the trial date is scheduled for late April, 2013. After the depositions in this case are taken I’ll see what I can do to nab the transcripts so everyone can get a peek inside the litigation.
First the disclaimer. Attorney Bobby Truitt represents Slabbed in its free speech fight against Aaron Broussard’s former business associates at Trout Point Lodge. Second I contacted Mr. Truitt for comment on the following documents, which my Gabby cousin Slabb O’Leak laid on me yesterday and he declined.
So folks to understand the significance of these documents and my post title above you have to understand Slabbed’s coverage of the political corruption scandal in Jefferson Parish, which began with this post back on January 12, 2010. By then Aaron Broussard had resigned in disgrace and Steve Theriot was installed via the bums rush by the Parish Council as Broussard’s interim replacement. I contended then and still contend Theriot was put in office to salvage the River Birch deal due to the fact he is John Alario’s protegé and Alario likely still has a financial interest in seeing River Birch end up with the monopoly on the region’s garbage. Theriot was also installed to prevent the corruption scandal from widening thus Tom Wilkinson was still on the payroll until March 4th, 2010.
The way Theriot went about containing the scandal was to attempt to silence those that were blowing the whistle on the systemic corruption and his battle trying to fire Anne Marie Vandenweghe played out on these pages. For a blogger like me the material was pure ratings gold and that is where the ignorant came in because the popular meme in certain less informed Jefferson Parish corruption circles is that I was “Anne Marie’s brother”. Sal Perricone parroted this remark on NOLA.com some time later and Slabbed will be revisiting Perricone, who
was fired from his job hastily retired from his job at the US Attorney’s office after strong evidence of unethical conduct as it related to another target of the sprawling federal corruption probe surfaced. When I say this is a cesspool in Jefferson Parish I’m not joking folks.
So what happened after Tom Wilkinson bit the dust at the upper levels of Parish Government? By that time Theriot had sent Anne Marie home claiming she was blogging while she was supposed to be working, a public allegation Theriot never sustained as it was pure fantasy. He was workin’ it though: Continue reading “File this one under they were ignorant until the very end…. (revised)”
