It's admittedly a very entertaining rumor.

Don't assume it's false either. More to this story and some if it may be true

Dambala - Jason B. Berry said...

Yeah Yeah...I know...believe me it's crazy. I am getting contradictory info on all fronts.

Dambala - Jason B. Berry said...

If it is true, he's already lied to media resources about it. That's going to be more painful than if he came clean out of the gate.

The broad needs to quit ducking the media and address the rumors of her affair with landrieu. She is making story look legit

Dambala - Jason B. Berry said...

Agreed. I saw the exact same thing happen with "London Rayne" during the Vitter/Melancon race. The young lady in question kept ducking the media and that kept fueling the fire even though the entire story was bullshit. I finally interviewed her (audio) and put the rumors back in the grave. This is exactly what needs to happen, she and MML need to come forward and quell the rumor if it's not true.

Everyone's keying on the girlfriend, as usual, because sex sells, but the more important "rumor" is if Serpas threatened Mitch with Blackmail.

That's clearly the most suspicious part of the rumor. But it's also the most explosive.

Heard nawlins city business is writing an article on the breaking scandal. Looks like real trouble is brewing now.

She is Bishop Paul Morton's employee????

Dambala - Jason B. Berry said...

Guys...just for the record...I really don't think this is true. I think this is vendetta by disgruntled officers within NOPD. That's my theory but it is admittedly speculation. I know it's juicy but I would caution you before you go apeshit over it.

Four deputy mayors in the FBI sights. Four police commanders under investigation. Now Serpas is extorting the Mayor(?) When do we admit that Mitch either has a serious problem judging character or serious character flaws of his own?

she's his niece

Dambala - Jason B. Berry said...

Once again...I am 90% sure this is not true. It seems like a lot of people want it to be though. I believe this rumor was started by disgruntled NOPD officers who were recently overlooked for promotion. I am 90% sure the rumor isn't true and I'm about 60% sure the rumor came from within NOPD. Whoever it came from they were able to get the MSM's panties all in a wad. But note that ALL of the news outlets know this rumor and not a single one has run the story...some of them have known for over a week. That alone should tell you the rumor is unsubstantiated.

Adrastos said...

The rumor is total BS peddled by cops pissed off at both Mitch and Serpas. "Fairly reliable source" my ass.

Jason: I don;t give a batshit if all of City Hall and Wash DC fuck each other ...but your statement that scares me is " But note that ALL of the news outlets know this rumor and not a single one has run the story...some of them have known for over a week. That alone should tell you the rumor is unsubstantiated." You are kidding right? The news outlets know about a lot of corruption and worse in Jefferson Parish , which is well substantiated and which they won't cover. Last time anything substantive re JP came out of any Media Outlet was when Val Bracy was with FOX. PUHLEEZE Berry, I had more hope for you ... who you been hangin with guy? "Panties in a wad"? Who you got writing this shit for you?

Dambala - Jason B. Berry said...

Well if that statement concerns you Im not sure how I can help. I'm not even sure i know what your point is. Are you upset because I'm dismissing this rumor a load of steaming shit or are you upset because I'm pointing out that even the MSM folks realized it was a steaming pile of shit? What exactly has your panties in a wad, boo?

This is actually funny, I am constantly berated by MSM in respect to my credibility. I Point out that this rumor is bullshit and note that even the MSM knows it's bullshit and then I get lambasted for it? What part of me stating this is bullshit became I'm an asshole for stating the truth? Are you mad because I sought the truth or are you mad because I commended the MSM for not reporting a bunch of bullshit?

How did I turn into the asshole for telling the truth?

Dambala - Jason B. Berry said...

And bro if you think Val Bracy is the only one telling the truth that just tells me that you have absolutely no fucking idea what you're talking about. I like Val but in case you haven't noticed the Lens, Zurik, SLABBED!!!!!!...there are a lot of people telling the truth. Do you even know what the truth is in JP?

Dambala - Jason B. Berry said...

Of course you don't. You don't know shit.

In case you're under the impression that you do know know something...let me be the first one to tell you....you don't know shit. You haven't done the homework...you're not even enrolled in the class, motherfucker.

You have no idea what is going on in JP or in OP right now. You have no idea what can be reported or what can't...legally. You know two things...1. Jack....2. Shit.

There are people like me, Doug, and others....Zurik...yes...Zurik... who have sacrificed a tremendous amount of their lives to liberate information and tell the public the truth. For you to criticize me (even if I was wrong...and I'm not) for telling the truth? Fuck you.

You don't even deserve my attention. But I am paying attention to you because I think I know who you are and I want to bitch slap you right now.

Unless you're ready to take on the responsibility of "knowing" and then the subsequent responsibility of "reporting" I'd suggest you check your fucking ego in at the door.

This rumor ISN'T FUCKING TRUE. Deal with it, bitchboy.

"Who you got writing this shit for you?"

Fuck you....seriously...fuck you. You had ample opportunity to say that to my face today. Why didn't you? Sniveling little fucks like you piss me off more than the rat bastards I write about. Stand the fuck up and tell it to my face. Stand up...fuckstick. Or go home tonight and beat off in obscurity.

Aren't you the guy who ran out of the Rising Tide like a sniveling little girl when someone you posted about showed up to have a face to face discussion? You didn't even stay to accept your award.....

Dambala - Jason B. Berry said...

Let me know what prison you end up in, I'll come face you anytime.

Dambala - Jason B. Berry said...

Damn I was drinking when I wrote that rant. Wow...that comment must have really pissed me off

Yaknow, if I can digress from this wiffle bat ether-rumble...

...has it occurred to anyone this is really serious? No, not the "rumor" itself, rather:

- Nola Gossip Guy (look folks if you scroll through that twitter line he basically "breaks" stories off google news... except for this, or am I wrong?) made the bedrock of that shakey rumor hacking foundation that Mitch was going to can Serpas yesterday.

Well that did not happen.

So - what we have here is an extremely dangerous and lethal DISINFORMATION campaign.

That's a very big story too.

Apparently some very worthwhile writers and reporters went around for half a day chasing this bs down, but now what about who started all this and why?

There's a lot going on right now. Details. Danziger. Defillo (and whhither Riley?). Command shakeup + civil service "reform". Resignations. Investigations for everything from dumping unies to profiling. Meanwhile crime constinues unabated, especially the murder rate.

Something is UP. It ain't what someone tried to portray as being up, but something is up.

Mr. Nola Gossip Guy is sitting on something important after all, as in who sent him that info?

By the way Jacques Morial showing up to accept an award for the caped ethics crusader was too rich, and now he's on Treme. Those things must be connected. So thereyago.

Also, just because RT is at Xavier this year I hope that does NOT mean there will NOT be beer (and more importantly good beer). That also is very important. If there is no beer please move it back to Ashe Center (how fitting was that?)

Let's assume some overly ambitious newscaster got played by someone. (nopd?) And mitch was able to squash it. (does anyone doubt his ability to manipulate media?) what is the fall out? Does Mitch put a head on a pike? (or was that it rolling down hq's steps with retirement papers?)

Dambala - Jason B. Berry said...

- By the way Jacques Morial showing up to accept an award for the caped ethics crusader was too rich,

yeah...well...hate to disappoint you but that's not as sexy as you think. Jacques accepted that award purely to fuck with the dickwads who were trying to intimidate those of us who were exercising the 1st amendment.

Jacques doesn't even like me...I think he would rather hit me than have to talk to me. Well that's not true because he's not a violent man. But rest assured, there is no alliance between us. We don't "talk". I had never actually met him before he accepted that award for me. In fact I had dissed him on the blog before RT 3 went down.

Having said that...I have a lot of respect for Jacques...a whole lot.

What happened at that event was pretty simple:

I showed up, still drunk from the night before, anxious to hear Harry Shearer's speech. I was sittin' by Eli and we both noticed these two huge motherfuckers standing over the crowd, scanning the audience like they were about to bounce somebody out of the building. Another blogger strategically informed us that they were with BE and he was there to "Get me !"

Eli and I then started joking about it, wondering if they would really try to kick my ass in front of all of these people.

So one thing led to another and we devised a spontaneous plan to fuck with Yoda's head.

I had every intention of accepting the Ashely that day but we figured why not be preposterous and ask Jacques if he would accept it in my stead. Once again, Jacques and I had never met, we didn't know each other and for that matter... we still don't know each other.

Regardless, Jacques got the joke and played along.

I think he did it because he appreciates what we do. He may not agree with what I'm saying but I think he appreciates my right to say it.

While I hate to diffuse any notions of conspiracy (that just fuels my fire), the tone of your comment was so eloquent I felt obligated to entertain your musings.

There are no connections between Jacques and I. Not then...and not now.

Story is far from quashed. Mitch is going to be very disappointed if he thinks the story was killed.

is the coward taing a little rest?

Dambala - Jason B. Berry said...

Not at all....I'm just looking into Cobb's background. Oh and Robichaux....oh and Sherman Copelin....oh and John Georges....oh and some notarial archive numbers that were dropped off in the last post.....oh and reading a most enlightening development with Fradella, no wonder Bennett is nervous.

But I appreciate you hovering around at the bottom of a 27 comment post. I'll get you some soap on a rope when the hammer falls to show my appreciation.

Anonymous said...

Robichaux, Copelin and Georges? Don't think they have any relation to Cobb or Fraidella, but they are all people Mitch has issues with. Are you on Mitch's payroll now? Doing his dirty work?

Dambala - Jason B. Berry said...

I don't know who Fraidella is...but I do know Fradella.

Keep talking...just keep talking. I know you can't help yourself. I appreciate every sentiment.

Dambala - Jason B. Berry said...

Oh and payroll? You still haven't figured it out yet? You think I'm on "a payroll"? Mitch's payroll? Dude you're in for one helluva shock.

Just keep coming...and commenting....please don't stop.

Dambala - Jason B. Berry said...

And just so we get this right:

Robichaux is Coplein's lawyer?

And Robicaux is "NolaGossipGuy" on da' Twitta's?

Yeah?

Oh and Capella?

Maybe?

keep talkin' skippy...I'm listenin'

You know, it just occurred to me that you're such an idiot....you don't even know what's going on....do you?

Who is Cobb?

Dambala - Jason B. Berry said...

Cobb is irrelevant...to anyone but us at the bottom of this thread. I wast just curios about the relationship.

So let's get personal.

You...yes. you....you lied to me and the folks who read this blog. I know you may hate us but you also fucking lied to us. That really, really, pisses me off.

However, I am a compassionate man. I'm not rational but I am compassionate.

Once again....I offer you the mic...it's open....we're listening....

I was just curious who Cobb was. :(
