The Slabbed community has been all over Team River Birch’s use of straw man political campaign contributions to exceed the statutory limits since literally since day 1 when we broke it. Yesterday evening, Paul Rioux filed a story for the T-P updating this portion of the sprawling political corruption saga as Big D wants a stay in the Louisiana Ethics Board case against him since he would have to take the 5th amendment, the theory being he can’t ‘splain without admitting to what the campaign cash money trail clearly says he did.
Fazzio’s lawyer for the Ethics investigation, the River Birch paid Stephen London surfaces again as Big D evidently is trying to make use of that agreement he signed in River Birch’s best interest to score free legal help. If this is indeed the case London is as conflicted as he was trying to defend Fazzio before Judge Ginger, who tossed him after the US Attorney’s office sought his DQ because of that agreement which I again mention today.
In any event today Rioux again spells out for his audience something we already knew: Bobby Jindal and Aaron Broussard were the biggest beneficiaries of the Fazzio campaign money train.
The suit, filed a year later on May 18, does not list who received the allegedly illegal contributions or the amounts. But a Times-Picayune review of campaign finance reports indicates that 24 candidates have received donations totaling $90,500 from the seven firms named in the suit since 2009, the cutoff date for the three-year statute of limitations.
Since 2003, the seven firms doled out more than $300,000 to about 60 candidates. Continue reading “Fazzio seeks a stay in his straw man campaign cash case. Takes a page out of the Calhoun playbook.”
Last Friday the Louisiana Board of Ethics filed formal ethics charges against
Fred Heebe, Dominick Fazzio and a host of companies under their control. The basis of the allegations can be found on this post beginning with this comment on Slabbed circa February 2011 and the subsequent comments by former Slabbed commenter Telemachus and the indefatigable Whitmergate
Telemachus is a former Slabbed commenter due to an invasion of privacy that resulted from Aaron Broussard business associate Charles Leary of Trout Point Lodge swearing perjured affidavits to a Nova Scotia court to obtain posting information on Telemachus and Whitmergate, subsequently intimidating Telemachus into silence. Sadly, Louisiana Media Company LLC aka Fox 8 was complicit in the deception of Justice Muise of the Nova Scotia Supreme Court and resulting invasion of privacy as they too knew full well who I was having appeared on Fox 8 a year earlier.
That said the legacy of Telemachus and Whitmergate’s sleuthing is apparent in the 9 page pdf, which can be found below the fold as ordinary folks make a big difference to the betterment of their community ~ sop Continue reading “BREAKING: Louisiana Ethics Board files charges against

SLABBED has offered three tours:
As I was cleaning up the photo files, I ran across a couple of pictures that had been overlooked when putting the tours together. I still don’t have a floor plan. However, this exterior shot gives some indication of the layout. Consequently, in this
sweep tour, I can update a few earlier guesses with somewhat “educated” guesses and a very helpful “hint” from Tele”. Continue reading “Trading Spaces (not the TV show)”
The Times-Picayune got the story out River Birch launches new volley in Jefferson Parish landfill debate:
River Birch Inc. opened a new front Thursday in its effort to sway public opinion in the Jefferson Parish landfill debate.
The company placed a full-page advertisement in The Times-Picayune as its latest flyer landed in residents’ mailboxes…Both pieces take aim at Waste Management, the company that now operates the parish-owned landfill at Waggaman…
While Nancy Drew tried to use the story as an attempt to thwart his effort to revirginate John Young, Tele called the shot:
The return PO, PO BOX 1938, Gretna, is that of LIVE OAK HOMES CORP.
In other words, the Birchers who have the brass ballz to present that they are separate and individual entities who have been unfairly searched and seized from are using one of their corporate nicks/subenitites to do the money shoveling and pimping for their very, very, very dirty business.
Trash is indeed dirty business but garbage is garbage – but the search team’s photographs talk truth about trash better than a River Birch advertisement.
