It was Whitmer and Wilkinson, along with Dominick Fazzio that hammered out the parish contract with the River Birch Landfill.
Under Broussard, who was largely a hands-off executive, Whitmer ran the 3,100-employee, $500 million administration. He possessed an encyclopedic knowledge of projects and programs and was renowned for answering emails deep into the night, after ramrodding meetings and extinguishing political fires all day.
This is absolutely true. Broussard was always off running scams for his own self enrichment while Tim Whitmer was the defacto Parish Prez under two administrations. To the underlings at Yenni, Whitmer was seen as a ruthless snake in the grass that terrorized the minion. In certain circles he is as hated as Tom Wilkinson as both used blunt force trauma as their preferred management style. Unlike Wilkinson, who is crass and vulgar, Whitmer had the Cleaver family playground spiel perfected. Both are now convicted felons.
In other news my Truitt Law Firm Mug arrived in the mail today and it is a keeper! Thanks Bobby.
And the whistleblower suit is over! Congratulations to AMV, Parish Prez John Young, Deb Foshee and Bobby Truitt. As a sage litigator of national renoun once told me, settling means taking less than what you want it is also true there are situations where everyone comes out on the other side satisfied with the result. I think that is the case here.
I have no details thought I suspect there is a golden handcuff in play which means there will never be any details released. Time will tell.
Nothing more to see here folks, move along please.
Yep, sure does.
I’d personally love to see a full report and perhaps some day we will.
I hope to have version 2 ready for publication sometime this week. We are having compatibility issues though as some of you folks use Word Perfect while others are using Word. I run both but my goal is to have a shareable document in the cloud that is accessible to everyone on the Timeline team. I mention all this because the updated timeline will contain several entries related to the following documents, which I have pulled from the most sensitive part of the “Slabb O’Leak” document cache here at Slabbed New Media. With the Wilkinson guilty plea and the fact I believe he is squealing like a stuck pig these become very topical for reasons Slabbed will soon reveal.
For true they did as Judge Guirola ruled yesterday on the appeal bond. As for any perceived frivolousness of the Goatherder’s appeal following is their brief and the readers can decide that for themselves. Just over a week from today will mark one year this issue has been litigating in federal court. (Click the pic to nab the 44 page pdf)

There are a few of you guys that date back with me all the way to Yahoo Finance that read this including occasional commenters Steve and Russell, who also now runs his own blog plus many more that have been with me here on Slabbed for a bit over 3 years. Post by post and comment by comment we’ve built the very case that Jim Letten’s office did not want laid at its doorstep via relentless search for the truth. People with ties to this area have discovered us in the aftermath of the meltdown at Team Letten and are now relentlessly searching for that truth for themselves on these pages. I like that because I think we’ve laid out a compelling case on many levels and that does not count the human drama that accompanied the events, also told on these pages. As Incroyable has noted, in respects it is better than a John Grisham novel because the community here is watching and experiencing it first hand.
As moderator I get a view of these events at a differing level. Tom, for instance is crawling my post archives on one of the major subplots in the ongoing retaliation against those commenting on the scandal. Get with ‘Gate Tom, because he has the rest of the story and how it fits with the Mark Titus saga. Others have a broader interest in the whole US Attorney commenting scandal such as Muspench, who left an insightful comment on Manuel Torres excellent piece yesterday on the Titus prosecution and forfeiture. Manuel lays it all out including this:
The government sees Fazzio as a key to making a case against River Birch landfill co-owners Fred Heebe and Jim Ward, who have not been charged and have denied wrongdoing.
Why is Big D so important? I know the answer but am sworn to secrecy. I think Manuel and Krewe at NOLA know the answer and they aren’t saying either. The answer is key to understanding how the prosecution is trying to build its case against Heebe for presentation in the courtroom.
Back to Tom and commenter retaliation. I’ll lay down a time stamp and say that I know the cyber identity of the International House commenter with 99% certainty and am 90% certain I know the guy’s real name. Same is true for NolaCat, one of the 11 names subpoenaed by DOJ OIG from the Times Picayune/NOLA Media Group. I am not saying a word because I believe both to be private citizens.
But that isn’t stopping informed readers from speculating and engaging me with that speculation. And the communiques that I think advance the search for the truth need to be shared with everyone. I have a series coming courtesy of a reader that I’ll simply call RICO. Slabbed has high quality readers so in this post I will introduce the person, well actually I’ll introduce the life experience behind the person before I begin rolling out the material: Read the rest of this entry »

Justice Leon Muise
Supreme Court of Nova Scotia
164 Main Street
Yarmouth, NS B5A 1C2
RE: Yarmouth Action #328248
Trout Point Lodge et al v Louisiana Media Company LLC
Dear Justice Muise:
On Friday January 18, 2013 I was contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding a security breach and/or hacking of my widely read legal affairs blog at www.slabbed.org by persons connected to or acting on behalf of targets of an ongoing Federal Investigation in post Hurricane Katrina political corruption on the Gulf Coast, specifically metro New Orleans. The above action is one of several defamation suits filed by Aaron Broussard’s American expatriate business managers in Canada1, Charles Leary and Vaughn Perret over minute details of their self-admitted business relationships and management of an entity that United States prosecutors would later describe as an elaborate bribery scheme.2 The United States District Court for Southern District of Mississippi would later describe these Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation lawsuits filed by Broussard’s Canadian based business agents as the practice of “libel tourism”.3
The purpose of this letter is to address the use of perjured affidavits by Charles Leary in the above captioned defamation suit filed before your court to invade the privacy of US Internet commenters commenting on a US political corruption scandal. Attached to this letter is a motion made by Charles Leary under your local rule 14 filed on April 26, 2011 seeking a court order to obtain the IP address of 4 commenters on my blog including myself. Mr. Leary claimed in the court filing and at a later hearing before your court in May, 2011 that I was an anonymous blogger, that he did not know my identity and needed a court order to determine such in order to file suit against me and 3 other Americans for defamation in Canada.
Also attached to this letter is an affidavit sworn in United States District Court by Mr. Leary in Yarmouth Nova Scotia dated July 25, 2012 submitted to the United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi in which Mr Leary swore:4
“On May 6, 2011, a process server named Chris Yount served a Notice of Intended Action directed to Doug Handshoe on Doug Handshoe’s wife at his residence in Bay St Louis, Mississippi.”
Less than two weeks later he was in your courtroom testifying he did not know the identity of the publisher of Slabbed. The effect of this was that I and 3 others were denied due process to contest Mr Leary’s wild accusations. Read the rest of this entry »
Allow me to summarize the latest Waste Management lawsuit against Jefferson Parish:
1. From 2007-early 2010 Jefferson Parish was run by self admitted felons
2. Even after those self admitted felons resigned in disgrace TheRiot continued their dirty work during his interim reign of terror.
3. Now the cat is out of the bag so Mini-me is gonna have to write another check with other people’s money, about the only thing the guy is good at. That is, of course if him and Elton LaGasse don’t burn another $500,000 defending the indefensible paying the hollow suits at Phelps Dunbar before they write that check to Waste Management.

A quick review – Cockroaches:
1. Operate in the shadows and under the cover of darkness.
2. Operate as a group.
3. Scatter when light or sun shine is applied.

Or in the parlance of the insurance litigation: Delay, Deny, Defend. Here are three links along those lines:
Now regarding this legal war between the Parish council and the Housing Authority Board. In it simplest, most boiled down terms the fight is about the financial interests of one man in Gary Lala as it intersects with the desire in the Gretna political set to keep subsidized housing out of that City. Everything else is smoke and mirrors except the stealing and looting, which is very real.
