12 or 12th?

This is pretty interesting:

Twelve Ward Save Our Community Organization, Inc.

I can't find this anywhere on the SOS database.

It's spelled Twelve instead of Twelfth and it is clearly a different entity than Twelfth Ward SOCO.  Twelve appears to be domiciled at Charles Webb's (accountant) office at 616 Baronne while Twelfth Ward SOCO is domiciled at 2020 Jackson.  Webb is the accountant for Twelfth Ward SOCO and the New Orleans Urban Tourism Hospitality Training and Economic Development Foundation.

All this could be benign but the purposeful misspelling has my spidey sense tingling.

It's listed as "twelth" with SOS - http://coraweb.sos.la.gov/commercialsearch/CommercialSearchDetails.aspx?CharterID=28588_A4C42

12th, Twelfth, "Twelth," Twelve ...

More interesting to me is this: http://landrieu.senate.gov/priorities/upload/0611109LHHS_Appropriations_Requests.pdf

But by 2009/2010 (see audits here: http://app1.lla.state.la.us/PublicReports.nsf/EC78C4475726D481862576EF0072A27A/$FILE/00015EE3.pdf + http://app1.lla.state.la.us/PublicReports.nsf/44FD4B67634301D08625783F00755CA9/$FILE/0001CBF9.pdf) the organization had morphed into a senior center, and the earmark Landrieu requested looks awfully out of place.

No..that's the point. Twelve is an entirely different entity than twelfth. They are domiciled under different names and locations.

Right. But it's (incorrectly) spelled "twelth" and not "twelfth" or "twelve" (or for that matter, "12th") with SOS. I digress.

Jason you are so right, these bros' may talk like their stupid but they know exactly how to spell, especially when it comes to spelling " I be stealin' my minority ass off" from grants, grants and more grants.
