This comment is of note:
- Another story about Ellis last year - he showed up at an IG organizational and support meeting for Cerasoli (who was not there) one time. In a (small) room full of supporters for Cerasoli trying to figure out how to help him this guy voiced criticisms of the office and the supporters and walked out saying it was a scam. Really odd, screwey little guy is how he seemed to me. What the heck was he doing there besides, I guess, spying and reporting back (he pretty much said as much, he told everyone he was a city attorney).
What makes this interesting is that I was told Ellis had a posse that would follow former Inspector General Cerasoli around to public forums in an attempt to punk him out and discredit him. Witnesses at the meetings say multiple people, i.e., a Tulane law student lacky (would love to find that little bitches name) and other sycophantic asswipes loyal to Ellis would hurl insults and falsehoods in the meeting in an attempt to discredit the IG and his office.
What's shaping up here is a Nagin mafia which may make the Morial crew look pale in comparison. No wonder Cerasoli was requesting that his office be armed....he was being stalked by Ellis and his little, fuckstick posse.
I may have to put a call into Mr. Cerasoli and ask him about this.
Also...not only does his wife, Daya Naef, work for Fradella and HSOA...she's the registered agent for Picke construction:
