Louisiana City Official Found With Katrina Donations at Home (Republican This Time)

BATON ROUGE, La. - Police found cases of food, clothing and tools intended for hurricane victims at the home of the chief administrative officer for a New Orleans suburb, authorities said Wednesday (AP)

A little research of my own found that Floyd is the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) of Kenner, the highest non-elected position in the city’s government. He was appointed by the new Mayor (elected in march) Philip Capitano (Registered as Republican). You can visit his site here.

Police say they plan to see criminal charges against Floyd, and more yet against other “unnamed” city officials. Between the story about Rep William Jefferson (D-La), and now this one, it shows that no party is immune from the obviously vast corruption in Louisiana. Maybe some good will come in the aftermath; maybe all the corrupt officials will be swept out and the citizens will have a chance at true representative government.
