1. Ray Nagin is fucked
There are two items in these charges which give me a Nagin indictment woody. The first is this morsel:
The second item is this:
No snap on this but a definite goatee stroke accompanied by a smart-ass smirk. The company Transportation Management, LLC. was none other than our multi-talented buddy Jimmy Goodson. Welder, chauffeur, bodyguard...and now apparently handyman and landscaper....the only resume-deficient guy who made a bigger score than Bowling Pin Jones was Goodson. If Meffert has fessed up on the home repairs being funneled through Goodson, chances are good that Jimmy sashayed next door and spruced up Ray's house as well. That was a prevailing rumor back in the day, but no way to prove it 'til now. But once again we must consider if it falls within the statute of limitations.
2. Ciber and their VP Ed Burns may be fucked
We already knew they were the papa bear company in this conspiracy, receiving over 50 million smackeroos from the city during Nagin's tenure. Now we are seeing it spelled out very clearly:
Those last figures total a whopping $3,787,737.47. And check this statement out:
3. Benetech may be fucked
Once again, Benetech's name is prevalent:
They are clearly stating that just like Ciber, Benetech was a shell company to funnel cash to St. Pierre. Not to toot my own horn, but I was consistently questioning how and why Benetech was conducting IT services for our city. I'm still amazed that Aaron Bennett continues to nail multimillion dollar local and federal government contracts including a 100 million dollar COE contract which they have reportedly botched just like they did the airport, their Memphis contract and the Plaquemines prison contract. This guy has dropped turds all over the country and our government entities just seem to love doling out the cash to watch him.
With all the news about Bennet/Benetech and St. Pierre that has been issued this year I am surprised you haven’t updated your blog since Sept. 09. The COE awarded them multiple contracts as a Service Disabled Veteran Owned business which only happened after Aaron put 51% of the company in his father’s name to qualify Benetech. The father does no day to day management of the company, but only flys in from Texas on occasion to make an appearance. Their Corporate Health and Safety Officer (Kristen Sojak ) admitted to the COE that she forged her OSHA card using their Construction Director’s (Jim Book) card to forge hers (I am sure as directed by him). The COE was told that she was fired; however informed sources have her still working for the company. I think St. Pierre and Bennet were in it with all the rest of those who have gone to jail, but Bennet keeps escaping. There is also the lucrative Mardi Gras stands contract that Bennetech got after they flew Nagin to the Bears game. Stay the course until they are all convicted felons.
Of course I'm once again getting me balls busted for not doing enough, but this is interesting info. I didn't realize Nagin kicked them a contract for Mardi Gras stands as well.
4. Who the hell is Connexus?
We know Meff and St. Pierre had a slew of LLC.'s they were funneling money through and I thought I had done a really good job of keeping up with all of them. This be the first time I've heard of Connexus:
I'm guessing they were a Baton Rouge funnel.
5. The Big Dogs are named
Earthlink, Dell, interesting these guys were listed:
Fruckin' Dell...they bought the cameras from St. Pierre then sold them back to the city for St. Pierre to install. Dude..get the hell.
Also the charges list Baton Rouge and Lafayette public officials which we already know about, but I'm thinking there may be charges pending for some of our neighbors.
6. Bastard people (say it out loud in a Scottish accent...damn that's fun)
As if the standard flow of grifted flotsam and jetsam wasn't enough, I guess Capt. Dicksmack had to inflate invoices to keep the Silicon Bayou afloat. Soon you will smoke a turd in Davey Jone's locker, sir, as Admiral Meffert wraps the anchor chain around your slimy neck.
That's all I got for now, but one thing to remember is that Camsoft still has a pending civil suit against most of these cats so shit fire and save the matches, they've got be lovin' life right about now.
