Monday Links

I was floored to the response to my vague post on DMR’s Phil Bass and I’m gratified I have so many readers here in Mississippi that took time to introduce themselves over the weekend.  Time is short for me so here are a boatload of links:

Expert: State Farm failed to follow fair claims practices for Biloxi home ~ Anita Lee

What can I say folks but ‘Gate had S.H. Anthony called back in 2011.

Jefferson Parish contracting overhaul proposals delayed for six months ~ Manuel Torres

Watching all the contortions involved with the Jefferson Parish council trying to wish this issue away is amusing.  Now supposedly it is the Black Chamber of Commerce who is worried that instituting professional procurement practices in Louisiana second largest Parish and the end of pay to play style procurement will somehow hurt them. Chris Robert’s briefcase boy Mark Spears has point on this one folks.

Biloxi’s own Russell Moore will be Southern Baptists’ voice. ~ Tammy Smith

Russell is both a Tweep and a member of the Slabbed Nation.  I could not be more delighted that a homie has done well.

Four lawyers vie to fill judicial seat at Jefferson Parish state court ~ Paul Purpura

Paul covers the 24th JDC Division D race in depth.

DHH Secretary Bruce Greenstein resigns in wake of federal investigation ~ Lauren McGaughy

Piyush’s second term is unraveling quickly it appears. Jeffrey over at Yellow Blog has been all over this story.

Mark Titus’ son asking court to allow claim on property targeted by River Birch probe ~ Manuel Torres

Hearing will be next week for Miller’s confirmation as DMR chief ~ Michael Newsom

In horsemen’s association case, the legislative auditor is the one still smiling ~ James Gill

Legion: Stop-work order planned on Bay St. Louis comfort station ~ Donna Harris

So it turns out the lease on the Legion property was not expired as previously claimed by American Legion post Commander Clayton Thompson. Something tells me the bathrooms are gonna be built lawsuit or not. And in a blast from the past for that particular intersection I conclude with the following:

Carrigee quits as DH building chief, claims ‘lies and politics running wild’ ~ Dwayne Bremer

The more things change…….

There were some that claimed Slabbed was too hard on Sean Alfortish before he went to the pokey, including Alfortish himself at his sentencing. I sayeth not:

Legislative auditor revisits horsemen’s group, finds more flagrant spending ~ John Simerman

“Two former leaders and four other employees of the organization that represents Louisiana Horsemen went nuts on the association’s credit cards, with more than $800,000 in suspect spending over a five-year period, according to an investigative audit released Monday morning by Louisiana Legislative Auditor Daryl Purpera’s office.”

Meantime a reader points out ol’ BrousStar was not the only Kenner pol to clip and send.

Sean Alfortish gets 46 months. He deserved double that IMHO.

Sean Alfortish was sentenced last Thursday. Slabbed last visited with his jackassery here. Stephanie Grace wrote a good column about the entire Alfortish fiasco for yesterday’s T-P that is worth visiting.  For those keeping a Jefferson Parish corruption score card when Alfortish wasn’t looting out the Horseman’s Association, he moonlit as a city magistrate in Kenner that sat in judgment of others.  I’m pretty sure Slabbed is the public executioner to which Alfortish referred to in his remarks before Judge Fallon, who imposed the maximum prison sentence for Alfortish’s self admitted crimes.


Is Sean Alfortish a fucktard? Discuss.

You know Sean there are idiots and then there are fucktards. My considered opinion is you are the latter.

In bizarre twist, federal prosecutors invite defendant to withdraw his guilty plea

I also have a statement from Jim Letten’s office on this latest turn with Alfortish: Continue reading “Is Sean Alfortish a fucktard? Discuss.”

In this episode of Magnum J.D.: Slabbed does the NOLA social scene as we go “high society” at 4717 St Chas……

I strongly alluded to it here last year but now I’ll come right out and say it that Magnum will be forever linked to Sean Alfortish of Louisiana Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association scandal infamy and indeed Sean’s world must be closing in on him with word that his right hand lady in scam Mona Romero joined her sister in law Cricket in chirping and moaning sweet nothings about ol’ Sean to Team Letten. But Sean is also famous in local legal circles for stealing Magnum’s wife who by all accounts dropped poor Magnum like a hot potato in favor of lustful debauchery and other extra marital activities.

So with Alfortish facing a nice well deserved stretch at the Grey Bar Hotel what is a wife to do besides ditch ol’ Sean and head back for the calmer environment of uptown New Orleans. Quite frankly this may ultimately end up as a rematch made in heaven.  Slabbed wishes the couple well should they reconcile. Salute!


And then the Cricket began chirping…….

We had some holiday week developments in the Louisiana Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association scandal as Cindy “Cricket” Romero agreed to chirp about her sister-in-law Mona and Sean Alfortish per David Hammer’s T-P story from last Wednesday. We are interested in this case for 2 reasons, one being that everyone seemingly knows Alfortish due to his sometimes outlandish personal behavior beyond what Team Letten listed in their indictment.

The T-P editorial board put in their 2 cents the next day on this topic. From the looks of it, the noose around Alfortish’s balls is tightening.


OK folks, no more horsing around: Here is an early Christmas treat for you Team Magnum freaks

After today’s federal indictments were released we received an email from the legal team directing us to this David Hammer story over at NOLA regarding the indictments of Sean Alfortish and Mona Romero over at the Louisiana Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association for looting it out for their personal benefit. Gee doesn’t that sound familiar.

There are some who say that back in the day Sean Alfortish liked to play.
And play he did taking trips to Aruba on the Benevolent dime
but here at Slabbed that’s not why Alfortish shines.
For some of his buds from back in the day
have been whispering “the who” Sean liked to play.
For it seemed Sean was quite the Casanova
Taking his conquests on the livingroom sofa!

So now we fast forward to today and the Alfortish name is again in play.
But for reasons why from back in the day.
It is not good to land on the Slabb
