Gee, did anything happen while I was away?
Whewwwww doggie were things happening! I’m not sure where to start and that does not count a new development here on Slabbed. Both chapters of the Slabbed Nation are lumped into one post for the sake of expediency so we gotta start with Former Goatherder in Chief Aaron Broussard’s REJECTION by Judge Head:
Even worse for the others trying to make hay outta Sal, Jan and allegedly others playing on the Internet:
We gotta get Manuel a nickname. Lest I digress as Judge Head, on loan from Corpus Christi Texas is known as a seasoned jurist that does not tolerate fools or tomfoolery as these Robing Room reviews illustrates:
Criminal Defense Lawyer
Comment #: 1852
Brilliant but ill-tempered. Equal opportunity ass chewer though-no one is exempt from his wrath.
and this one which nails it:
Criminal Defense Lawyer
Comment #: 6563
Moody and occasionally ill-tempered, but smart, possesses a deep sense of justice, and yes, an equal opportunity butt-chewer. Your experience can be greatly improved if you prepare, which he will note and recognize.
He sounds like my kinda guy frankly which makes him the perfect judge for the Goatherders, especially the BrousStar of the pack. Now at this point I’d like to remind everyone I have some unique insights into the Judge Engelhardt inspired DoJ OIG investigation into the commenting scandal. I’d like to add that Judge Engelhardt deserved the full story the first time but an internal cover-up at Team Letten prevented it. That said, I do not think the Department of Justice is keen on locking up bloggers, journalists etc to figure out which beauty shops have the best street information. There are no secrets down here.
I think Judge Head’s ruling will have a calming impact on the commenting scandal and it is absolutely the right decision. The only question I have is whether the Virginian understands the exact kind of sociopath they have for a “cooperating” witness in Aaron Broussard.
Moving right along everyone must visit with Jason Berry over at AZ because he has lots of new lowdown on the Team Heebe/River Birch hunt for private citizens commenting on the internet about the ongoing federal investigation into the River Birch Landfill. As I told my lawyer via email early this morning Fred Heebe brought a machine gun to a water pistol fight with his apparent obsession with those commenting on the scandal. I brought my light saber.
Next up is yesterday’s feature miscreant:
The very mention of the name Erxleben makes my skin crawl with bad 1979/1980 Saints flashbacks.
Moving right along it appears Goatherder attorney Henry Laird got lucky when the Office of the State Auditor caved and modified their subpoena to allow the Sun Herald access to certain DMR financial records and so we get a treasure trove of new revelations:
Politicians giving marine resources foundation money back ~ Michael Newsom
So it turns out Bill Walker was using his conprofit to write campaign checks to all his pet politicians including Phil Bryant, whose campaign dutifully took and deposited the money without a second thought. One word describes it: Rotten. By “it” I mean the politicians slopping at the DMR trough because we already knew the Walkers were trash. Lest we get discouraged and lose all hope there are any honest politicians I’d like to point out that Slabbed has been editorially friendly to Senator Wicker, mainly because I think the guy is honest. Senator Wicker’s people returned the check before anyone knew anything was bad at DMR illustrating in the process why I think he is honest.
And today Anita Lee tells us the Office of the State Auditor has searched Tina Shumate’s house, possibly even the underwear drawer in her dresser (bad visuals on that one).
Not one to be left out of the news cycle fightin’ Cotton Fore’s attorney surfaced the other day to say his client is getting a bum rap on the Cocaine charges due to the fact he has a bad ticker. With this last revelation I’ll chip in my two cents worth and opine that at age 70, with a bad heart, Cotton should hang up the gloves. Yes, his epic bouts have given joy to the masses through time, but sir the time has come to leave the ring.
S.H. Anthony???? Where have I heard that name before?
Car 54, where are you?
Oh yeah the new development on Slabbed. I have received bat signals from the owner’s suite at the Super 8 Motel on Clearview. That subject deserves it own post. Stay tuned.
