The public isn’t buying in folks and frankly neither am I since former Mandeville Mayor did the pay to play thing with city venders to the tune of $165,000 plus. Jeff Adelson has the skinny for the Times Picayune:
Former Mandeville Mayor Eddie Price’s sentence on corruption and tax evasion charges would be reduced by two years under an agreement reached by Price’s attorney and federal prosecutors, according to court documents filed Wednesday.
Given the recent sentences that have been handed down in NOLA area public corruption cases such as those involving Bolar and Dollar Bill Jefferson I now openly wonder if NOLA area perpetrators get style points for being both white and smooth in the commision of their crimes.
If anything Price deserves a longer stint in the pokey to more closely align his sentence with Bolar, not the other way around.
