Securing City Contracts As Usual In New Orleans

Is this any different from the Morial Administration?

A City Council member has discovered that the Nagin administration gave a small contract to a company -- too small to need a Louisiana contractor's license -- then exponentially increased the company's take to more than $1 million.

The contractor, LSI also:

1. falsely claimed it had a Louisiana contractor's license when it bid for the work.

2. used a "fraudulent" contractor's license number in an initial bid to install and operate the cameras.

When will the federal investigation begin?

Sister Of Dollar Bill Jefferson Pleads Guilty

Let's see if Jefferson still wants to clear his family's name:

The sister of indicted Democratic Rep. William Jefferson pleaded guilty to concealing a crime on Wednesday, the fourth relative of the Louisiana lawmaker to become entangled in the family's legal troubles.

Brenda Jefferson, 52, helped defraud several nonprofit organizations by concealing and failing to report the activities of two of her siblings, Betty Jefferson and Mose Jefferson, and her niece, Angela Coleman, according to court documents.

Federal prosecutors in New Orleans recently charged the three other relatives with conspiring to steal more than $600,000 from organizations they set up to help at-risk and disadvantaged youth.

News Conference Announcement

When it was announced that Jim Letten would be holding a news conference concerning a development in a corruption probe, it came as no surprise that it would be a member of the Jefferson clan.

I do not expect any less from that corrupt and disgraceful family.

Dollar Bill Casts His Superdelegate Vote

Dollar Bill want to unify the party:

Representative William J. Jefferson of Louisiana, who was indicted for bribing a Nigerian official and engineering an international corruption scheme, announced today that he is casting his superdelegate vote for Mr. Obama.

“It is time to unify our party behind a nominee for President in order to give Democrats the best chance to win this fall,” Mr. Jefferson said in a statement.

Last week, a federal judge in Virginia refused to toss out the bribery charges against Mr. Jefferson, who argued that his alleged crimes more closely resembled influence peddling than bribery.
