And guys I’m agonizing because I’ve had a comprehensive post in drafts since August detailing the retaliation against anyone who has covered or spoken out on the massive political corruption scandal in Jefferson Parish by Aaron Broussard and his band of Goatherders. The original plan, based upon the advice of my lawyer Bobby Truitt was to roll it out after I won my SPEECH Act case against Broussard’s business agents/co-conspirators in Canada, Charles Leary and Vaughn Perret. For reasons I can’t go into at this time (and frankly I may never be able to go into) I’m still holding said post, which documents the events in detail. It will roll folks, that I promise.
But there is more because of Mark Moseley’s recent Lens column on internet commenter Jack, whom most everyone that is paying attention has deduced is Sal Perricone myself included. It is no secret I want to visit with Sal and to the extent he honors his ethical obligations as an attorney, he has the same rights as everyone else to express his opinions as he sees fit. But alas there is an investigation ongoing into the commenting scandal at the US Attorney’s office thus this Manuel Torres story for NOLA yesterday puts the stakes for everyone involved in that fight in perspective as the defamation suit Heebe v Perricone has been stayed by mutual request of the litigants.
Speaking of that investigation I can confirm the Department of Justice is crawling every square inch of Slabbed looking for evidence of grand jury leaks with particular emphasis on my composite source, the Legendary Wino of Lafayette Square. I think this diligence is a good thing because DoJ DC is taking the investigation very seriously and they should. I’d like to add that I do not expect to be subpoenaed by Team Horn. I absolutely love the fact officialdom thinks enough of Slabbed’s comprehensive post archives on the corruption scandal in Metro New Orleans to read it in detail.
But Jack is still on my mind because Jack, post employment of course, had other handles that he used on Slabbed and what the guy had to say, I thought was highly enlightening. So I have a conundrum, do I out Jack’s other alias to make a very important, albeit self serving point or do I leave it be and file it under the sanctity of commenting on Slabbed. I mean Perricone was way on the inside of the investigation back in the day Continue reading “So here I am, sitting at a major crossroads in Slabbed’s coverage of the scandal in Jefferson Parish…..”
