Today was indeed a banner day for New Orleans anti-corruption efforts:
Thomas gets 37 months after refusing to "rat"
Gusman admits overcharging city
Last week, Midura complained that Gusman wasn't providing enough information to the City Council about his proposed budget for 2008, filing one page with five line items adding up to $27 million. Other agencies provide much more extensive rationales for why they should receive city money, she said.
This Thanksgiving...I'm thankful for Shelley Midura.
