What started as a tip that a local radio personality/political candidate was pretending to be a lawyer has morphed into something more and that started when Slabbed obtained Southern District PSC candidate Demetria M “Sugar” Stallings resume from the Biloxi City Council minutes when former Biloxi Mayor AJ Holloway appointed Stallings to the Historical Preservation Commission:
Watching the clown show that is the modern day Republican party collapse under the weight of its own corruption is pleasing. So is watching Franklin Graham reveal himself as a political prostitute. Will the evangelicals give Hunter a pass like they do Trump claiming humping around is OK, because after all King David did that and worse? One thing about the good ol’ days that I do agree with is back then, people knew the difference between right and wrong, without watching Tee Vee news or listening to Tee Vee preachers that are more interested in building net worth than leading people to salvation.
Meantime Mississippi’s new bogeywoman, AOC is giving the Democrats a much needed enema and that is very pleasing to see as well. The only open question is whether or not the Dems lose next year by picking Creepy Joe Biden as their standard bearer. Not so pleasing are the people drinking the Koolaid that actually think one party is better than the other when the reality was well summed up years ago by the late Molly Ivins:
As they say around the Texas Legislature, if you can’t drink their whiskey, screw their women, take their money, and vote against ’em anyway, you don’t belong in office.
I love these snakes taking credit for throwing a scrap back to the populace after letting their insurance benefactors loot the NFIP dry, sticking the bill for the massive fraud on the little people in the process. Say what you want about Gene Taylor folks but he never put the interest of millionaire insurance executives from Illinois above the interest of his constituents.
Even better will the “robust” news operation at Times Picayune join the blogs in vetting potential candidates? Having all those bodies does no good if the editors won’t publish their stories. If you folks from New York reading this blog want to know the secret it is called having a sack.
Well folks what can I say except the T-P broke out their best file photo of former Plaquemines Parish Judge William Roe giving the stink eye to the camera and used it with his letter to the editor whining about the recent Times Picayune editorial about his imminent 3 month stint in the Grey Bar Hotel for petty thievery. I’ll add I bet the gang over at Team T-P happily posted the judge’s last missive to the paper and public before entering the jailhouse, which, in the spirit of the season, the ex judge gifted to all including the Slabbed Nation. Here is a snippet:
Your gratuitous and mean-spirited editorial must be considered another example of your rabid, irrational and hateful crusade, which exemplifies why The Times-Picayune is the second-rate paper it always has been.
Folks I have a hard time deciding which kind of sack of shit politico I hate worse, straight out crooks like Billy Nungesser or professional scapegoaters like John LaBruzzo that have no problem scapegoating minorities or the less fortunate to advance their personal political ambitions. Both types are dangerous just in different ways.
And then we have Bucktown’s John LaBruzzo. It is no surprise the people who gave David Duke to the political world would elect a right-wing nut to represent them. It is just that you’d think after the Duke disaster they would at least elect a right-wing nut that represented their interest in the legislature. As luck would have it Hammerman at the T-P wrote a lengthy article on the incumbent v incumbent battle involving Nick Larusso and John LaBruzzo and it does not cast LaBruzzo in a good light, especially the dishonest campaigning involving Larusso’s service in the military. And when a pol like, Senator Danny “Boob” Martiny washes his hands of a candidate it is saying something. Simply put LaBruzzo wasn’t redistricted into the race against Larusso by accident folks as even the most ardent right-wing nuts want him gone from the legislature.
Stay tuned folks as Slabbed will be introducing a new series of posts called “identify the candidate” that we’ll kick off with an able-bodied guy with a preference for using handicapped parking.
The folks in Plaquemines Parish Louisiana have a special talent for electing crooked miscreants to office and indeed we have featured the infamous Billy Nungesser Jr. on these pages several times for being a lying, thieving sack of shit but little did we know Sheriff Jiff Hingle was giving lessons on how to loot campaign cash and bill expenses multiple places.
