Paul Rioux sings his swan song before leaving the T-P: “Audit slams Jefferson Parish Housing Authority payments to governing board, legislator’s company”
And folks he did a great job with the topic to boot before leaving the T-P to join the BGR. Worth noting are Barry Bordelon’s nonsensical responses to the audit are highlighted in the story. Also worth noting is Waggaman’s George Amato aka George Peterson chimed in with some spot on commentary to Rioux’s piece pointing out:
Diversified Ventures floated a bogus $50,000 invoice through the Parish after Hurricane Katrina. It was presented by former Jefferson Parish District 3 Councilman Byron Lee and pushed through by former Parish President Aaron Broussard.
Also, Diversified Ventures is tied to the illicit non-profit Jefferson Sports & Scholastic Foundation which was ran by Lester Dunn, Byron Lee’s campaign finance manager.
This is all part of the ongoing activities of the “Marrero Mafia” that gave us the likes of Derrick Shepard, Judge Alan Green and ties to the Jefferson clan. Hmm, where does Councilman Mark Spears fit into this we wonder???
How Byron Lee and Girod Jackson fit into the narrative of Broussard’s post Katrina taxpayer-funded largess remains to be seen but they clearly do.
We’re going to have more on the Housing Authority as John Young is suggesting a house cleaning, a great idea so long as the current group of perpetrators is not recycled out in favor of other politically connected herd of swine.
