I regret to announce that my previously unannounced central Mississippi tour this week has been cancelled. I’ll likely make it up to Jacktown next month as it stands now.
First up is problems in the engine room here at Slabbed. I dispatched Mr Scott and even he was confounded. So on the theory people across this great nation are both paying close attention and Slabbed positive I sent off a bat signal:
@dreamhost Having connectivity issues. Looks like today is a scratch.
Plus DJ sent a detailed email explaining that one of the dilithium crystal nodes in the warp core needed replacing. With that fixed and before we engage the warp drive how about some lovely music that first appeared on these pages in our insurance litigation blogging days:
And were the government to promote Broussard’s cooperation to Head before sentencing, it ordinarily would do it by writing what is known as a 5K letter. The court record in the case contains no indication that such a letter has been submitted.
That could mean several things, say several defense lawyers familiar with the case. Perhaps Broussard has given information on River Birch privately, in interviews and grand jury testimony, but won’t receive a government recommendation for help until after he goes to prison. That’s an uncommon, but not unique, sequence of events.
Also Drew correctly points out Broussard was never known as a wealthy man but that was part of the scam with the guy, always broke, always out of money having to borrow from his friends. My sources, some of whom date to Broussard’s college days, describe him to Slabbed as the consummate hustler and the always being broke routine was part of it.
Given his flippant behavior after his last court appearance before Judge Hayden Head, I would add it is not outside the realm of possibility his Honor remands the disgraced former Goatherder in Chief to federal custody immediately. That in turn, would give me the warm fuzzies.
Slabbed will be there Monday to cover the events live from Lafayette Square where I hope to have a live interview with the legendary Wino of Lafayette Square. Meantime, since Aaron’s days with us here in the community are short before his extended vacation at the Graybar Hotel, I would like to turn to new media sensation Alexyss Tylor from Atlanta for some timely prison advice for the former Goatherder in Chief.

This is the question I have been asking myself for a few weeks now. Some of you folks may remember I did something over the Christmas Break I have never done, ever in the history of Slabbed: I pulled a post. Tomorrow I hope to roll it back out thanks to a steer Slabbed received from a new friend and share the impetus for writing it to begin with. Whatever the truth is, it is far bigger than Slabbed New Media and I think we’re closing in.
From my comment on Slabbed solves the mystery on the shores of the Tusket River in Nova Scotia as we reveal the Trout Point connection to the Jefferson Parish Political Corruption Scandal
Paying people as Paralegals that did not report to work has been a time-honored practice dating back to the Tim Coulon days as Parish Prez. Of course we all know Tom Wilkinson was Coulon’s guy for Parish attorney.
Hat tip Jr in comments for linking the AP story on Fox 8 regarding same. The RICO complaint is full of salacious details as once again Heebe’s waterboys in the local media take center stage:
In addition to bribing public officials to directly pervert the political process, the River Birch Defendants took other actions to successfully manufacture the appearance of “public opposition” to that landfill so as to prevent or delay competition from Waste Management’s Chef Menteur facility. Specifically, the River Birch Defendants made a substantial, undisclosed interest free and unrecorded “loan” of $250,000 to radio host Garland Robinette after Mr. Robinette, armed with false and misleading information in direct contravention of the LDEQ’s informed opinion, routinely railed against the purportedly harmful environmental consequences of opening and operating the Chef Menteur and Old Gentilly landfills. So effective was Mr. Robinette in corrupting the public dialogue that even the LDEQ felt it was unable to communicate its position on the benefits of the Chef Menteur and Old Gentilly landfills as safe and valuable alternatives to disposal at the River Birch landfills.
