...little did you know it was just getting started.
The third party in the Greg Meffert "Cameragate" scandal, Camsoft, filed their lawsuit in Baton Rouge a couple of days ago and....wow! Just wow!
Turns out Muppet's anchor line just keeps snaring more and more folks from N.O. to B.R. to Lafayette and who knows...maybe some big corporate names like Ciber, Dell....the list is extensive.
I wish I had a dollar for everyone who is currently repeating the phrase, "....fucking Greg Meffert!"
Check it out:
Within 48 hours of this case being filed the following events have unfolded:
1. The CTO of Lafayette, Keith Thibodeaux, was fired after the civil suit revealed that Meffert and cew put Mr. Thibodeaux's wife on staff (she did nothing but receive a check) in return for their crime camera contract.
2. The word on the street is that the CTO of Baton Rouge, Donald Evans, is about to be indicted but remains on the job.
3. B.R. sheriff, Jeff LaDuff mysteriously retired today.
4. Word is, Mayor Kip Holden's sphincter is tight enough to forge a diamond out of a lump of coal.
Most interesting, is the breadth of the scandal and the new players who took up the reigns where the old players left off, namely MMR communications, who essentially cannibalized Netmethods' contracts and employees. And get this...our old buddies Benetech took over the Ciber role.
Motorola...Earthlink...Dell? Damn, this could be the trial of the decade. I mean....damn....just read the lawsuit, it's like a novel. It also fills in a lot of blanks for me in terms of what was actually going on behind the scenes. Read up, we'll do coffee and rap about it later.
