Breaux for Governor?

I fail to see why he can even consider the possibility? I am not an attorney and ask for an insiteful discourse here folks.


Residency is the issue here. In order for Mr. Breaux to "qualify" he must be a citizen of the state of Louisiana. He has a Maryland drivers license and is registered to vote there. So his LEGAL residence is in Maryland. He has to spend a day more than half the year to qualify for this residency. Therefore he IS a citizen of Maryland, not Louisiana. If he wants to return to Louisiana to help in it's recovery he can move his office here and by office I mean private sector. He is not qualified to run for any office in Louisiana ... if he wants to be Governor he can run in Maryland. If he wants to be Governor of Louisiana, he can move back and run in 2012.

I hope Breaux will be foolish enough to stick his neck out and run.

I am amazed that all of you good government cheerleaders would pass up the chance to have a conservative well-connected, smart, successful political peace maker like Breaux in favor of someone like Jindal who gives whores a bad name.

How can anyone say Vitter is a Wolf in sheep's clothing? I have always found him to be honest and forthcoming in his stance on everything. Just because he asks the State to actually come up with a business plan before dropping millions of dollars into their laps? I would call that being a good public servant.

Greg,
Did you create that Breaux comercial? Is so then it seems like copyright infringment but if not then you are breaking the same laws by posting the comercial on your blog. Right?



There is no Breaux commercial on my website. Do you know who I am and where my website is? Please get your facts straight.

Breaux still lists Crowly as his hom, according to the news reports. So it is a similar situation as to when Charlie DeWitt ran in a district where he claimed a shed was his home, but went home to his family in Alexandria on the weeknds.

"Another complication is that publishing exclusively on the Internet has become extremely popular. According to U.S. law, at least, an author's original works are covered by copyright, even without a formal notice incorporated into the work. But such laws were passed at a time when the focus was on materials that could not be as easily and cheaply reproduced as digital media, nor did they comprehend the ultimate impossibility of determining which set of electronic bits is original.
Current case law holds that blogs in particular were created as a vehicle for the public display, without compensation to the author, of the personal thoughts and opinions of the author. Thus, as long as the reproduction of the material is accomplished without the expectation of compensation, the courts view re-posting as a furtherance of the intent of the original poster.
----------------------------------

The quote above was taken from a paper presented in 2005 at The Intellectual Property & Communications Law Program at Michigan State University, College of Law's annual conference on internet law and policy. The Intellectual Property & Communications Law Program at MSU College of Law focuses on the intersection of intellectual property and communications law. The paper’s author was Lawrence Lessig who will be the keynote speaker at this year’s conference.
Lessig’s bio is below:

Lessig is the founder of the Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School and chairs the Creative Commons project. He is also a board member of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Center for the Public Domain. More recently, he represented Web site operator Eric Eldred in the groundbreaking case of Eldred v. Ashcroft, a constitutional challenge to the 1998 Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act. His recent books include “Free Culture, The Future of Ideas” and “Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace.”

You call yourself a lawyer Greg?
Perhaps you need to keep current on new area's of law and their development instead of chasing Rich Dupree's e-mails.

Greg,

There is also something called the "fair use" policy, that allows copying part of a work for praise or criticism purposes.

The language used by Congress in Title 17, Section 107 specifically lists “criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research” as examples of uses that might be protected under fair use.

If your use is fair, it is not an infringement of copyright -- even if it is without the authorization of the copyright holder. Indeed, fair use is especially important to protect uses a copyright holder would not approve, such as criticism or parodies. See Campbell v. Acuff-Rose Music, 510 US 569 (1994).

The truth about the less than honorable Ross Foot
Reply | Forward Message #257 of 258 < Prev | Next >
In the March 23, 2007 edition of the Town Talk, former Judge, Ross
Foote, attempted to rebut a critical opinion of Foote's baby known
as "collaberative divorce". The critical opinion of that type of
divorce, was written by Susan Ford Fiser. Susan, who has probably
handled more divorces this past year than Ross Foote has in his entire
career, correctly debunked Ross's colleteral divorce propoganda, as
being a costly and unrealistic approach to divorce for the majority of
working class people. Ross, however, has travelled around promoting
his "collaberative divorce" ideas, no doubt with speaking fees, tax
deductions and other perks. In fact, Ross wrote in his Town Talk
article that "After 13-plus years as a judge, handling more than 1,500
divorce cases, I retired to promote what was clearly a less
destructive alternative to the lawyer-driven divorce."
Do you want to know the real reason Ross left the bench? In a child
support case, handled by Wilbert Saucier, Wilbert claims that Ross was
caught cancelling lawfully served subpoenas, served by Wilbert on the
father of his client's son, who happened to be the son a friend of
Ross. When Wilbert discovered Ross's imporper interferrence in that
case, and was preparing to file a complaint with the Judiciary
Committee, all of the sudden Ross up and resigned his judgship.
We all make mistakes, and should be forgiven. However, the first
step to forgiveness is admitting the wrongdoing. Ross failed to do
that. So when reading what Ross says about "collaberative divorce",
think of his credibility, lack of understanding of the common man, and
his biased motives in such a discussion. Re-read Susan's article, to
get the real scoop on the folly known as collaberative divorce.

Latest internal polls has Jindal up by 20+% over Breaux in a head-to-head.

Didn't Bush keep Clintons director of the CIA once elected? If so then the intelligence was the same and that makes Clinton just as responsible as Bush for going to war, though the media and the lying Dems would never admit it.

One thought would be is to withdraw all our military from the region and then let the localsdecide which tribal chief to follow. Let them kill each other in the name of God and then when the dust settles and oil is not affordable if it is even available we will let the liberals figure out the situation.

It is a good thing we did not have to fight WWII this way. We would still be trying to bring peace to Europe and defeat Hitler. Don't remember to many people caring about the German civilians killed in the bombing raids. "Kill them all let God sort them out."
What will happen is one muslam tribe will once again rule the others, decide they are the baddest bastards in the sand they will start screwing with Israel. Then Israel will turn the sand to green glass and problem over with.

Boy, what a suprise that is. I know this is an important building, but whay should the City put a bunch of money into it if others aren't willing to do it with their own money.

Brown fights dismissal from Cleco case
By Billy Gunn
bgunn@thetowntalk.com
(318) 487-6378

Bridgett Brown this week in U.S. District Court contested her dismissal in the Alexandria-Cleco Corp. case and wants the city to honor the contract she signed in 2005 for 10 percent of Cleco awards.

In papers filed Monday, she asks Judge Dee Drell to let her intervene in the dispute.
Asked for comment Wednesday morning, Brown referred questions to her attorney, Larry English of Shreveport.


ADVERTISEMENT

English in court papers and in a telephone interview Wednesday stated that the City Council approved Brown’s contract in July of 2005, and that it is the legislative body she answers to and works for, not the executive branch.

City Attorney Charles “Chuck” Johnson, who works for Mayor Jacques Roy, discontinued Brown’s involvement via a letter in February. At stake is the 10 percent stated in her contract that Brown was to receive if Cleco is found to owe Alexandria money.
In the termination letter to Brown, Johnson cited professional conduct rules in stating that Brown had harmed her client, the city of Alexandria.

“A lawyer shall not use information relating to representation of a client to the disadvantage of the client unless the client gives informed consent,” Johnson wrote.

Johnson did not elaborate on how Brown had disadvantaged the city, and did not return a call for comment Wednesday.

But in a letter to the council and Roy dated March 6 and faxed to The Town Talk on Wednesday, Brown states it was because she answered questions posed to her by the council.

“How possibly can attorney Brown be found guilty of an ethical violation by stating to the body that hired her it has the ultimate authority to hire special counsel?” English stated.

Brown and English also stated that Roy could have ethical problems in his current role as one of the negotiators in the ongoing mediation with Cleco -- a conflict the mayor denies.

Alexandria and Cleco officials participated in mediation talks in Lake Charles on Sunday and Monday.

Roy and a team of attorneys, the council and other city executives were present at the Lake Charles mediation, with the mayor taking a lead role.

English states in the March 6 letter that because of Roy’s involvement in another case related to the city-Cleco dispute, he needs a waiver from the council to participate in the city’s case.

“If no such waiver exists, the mayor is bound by Louisiana rules of professional conduct to recuse himself from the case,” English states.

The mediation, which has federal court oversight and will continue for the next month, is an attempt at an expedited completion of the ongoing dispute, in which Alexandria contends its ratepayers were overcharged for years.

CITY CHARTER

Sec. 4-02. Legal division.
(A) The head of the legal division shall be the city attorney who shall be appointed by the mayor, subject to confirmation by the council, and shall serve at the pleasure of the mayor. He shall be an attorney licensed to practice in the courts of Louisiana with at least five (5) years' experience in the practice of law.
(B) The city attorney shall serve as chief legal adviser to the mayor, city council and all divisions or departments, offices and agencies, shall represent the city in all legal proceedings and shall perform any other duties prescribed by this charter or by ordinance.
(C) Any assistant city attorneys authorized by the city council shall be appointed by the city attorney and serve at his pleasure.
(D) No special legal counsel shall be employed by the city except by written contract and approval of the city council.

Seems simple to a non-lawyer. Also seems simple that BB, even though authorized and approved by the city council, serves at the pleasure of the city attorney.

It is unfortunate that many people see the antics of race-baiting lawyers such as Bridgett Brown and Larry English and use that as a broad brush to paint a picture of all black attorneys. Alexandria has several good, competent black attorneys, male and female, who rely on their legal ability rather than crying racism every time they do not get their way. It is time for Bridgett Brown to ride away into the sunset, never to stir the waters of discontent again. Good riddance.

I'll take it a step further for you....If it is ever revealed that this person is an attorney (ie..officer of the court), then THEY are required to report any ethical violations which they believe may have occurred.

All of this bullshit talk from Bridgett Farrakhan and her "Hymietown" lawyer is just that. If they truly believe what they are saying about Mayor Roy, then THEY are OBLIGATED to report him IMMEDIATELY!!!

Of course, the Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board does frown on frivolous allegations.

As the Chief Executive Officer, it is Mayor Roy's dutie to be present in the mediation proceedings. The council was along for the ride as a courtesy. See paragraphs 3 & 8


Sec. 3-07. Powers and duties of the mayor.
The mayor shall be the chief executive officer of the city. He shall have the following powers and duties:
(1) Appoint and suspend or remove for just cause all city employees and appointive administrative officers provided for by or under this charter, except as otherwise provided by law, this charter, civil service or other personnel rules adopted pursuant to this charter. He may authorize any administrative officer who is subject to his direction and supervision to exercise these powers with respect to subordinates in that officer's division, department, office or agency.
(2) Direct and supervise the administration of all divisions, departments, offices and agencies of the city except as otherwise provided by this charter or by law.
(3) See that all laws, provisions of this charter and acts of the council, subject to enforcement by him or by officers subject to his direction and supervision, are faithfully executed.
(4) Prepare and submit the annual budget and five (5) year capital program to the council.
(5) Submit to the council and make available to the public a complete report on the finances and administrative activities of the city as of the end of each fiscal year.
(6) Make such other reports as the council may reasonably request to enable the council to conduct its councilmanic function.
(7) Keep the council fully advised as to the financial condition and future needs of the city and make such recommendations to the council concerning the affairs of the city as he deems desirable.
(8) Perform such other duties as are specified in this charter or may be required by the council.

Was Mr. Despino caught off guard by the letter? I'm sure he was but in the grand scheme it doesn't matter.

From what I heard Razz, not once, but twice failed to correctly complete his bid paperwork. He completely controlled his own fate; he has no one to blame but himself.

The letter, although a gross clerical error, has no real weight. The state bid law appears to have been followed to a "t." Do not chastise these people for doing there job; after all, they just have to follow the law. No big deal right?

Roy should be proud to have employees on staff who have an attention to detail so things like the "cost share" debacle are not repeated.

If you are so sure there is a cover-up; make a public records request and show us all how you are smarter than a purchasing manager, two lawyers, and engineer put together.

Does Bridgett Brown and/ or Kelvin Sanders actually rent office space from Myron Lawson?

not exactly rocket science said...

Seems to me that if a lawyer were in line to make a fee of 10% of a potential multi-million dollar settlment or judgment, the lawyer might be inclined to go to the lead lawyer (city attorney) and his boss (mayor) and make amends, swallow huge doses of pride, smile for the cameras, work on the case, and collect the fee in the end.

Anonymous said...

"Does Bridgett Brown and/ or Kelvin Sanders actually rent office space from Myron Lawson? "

Yes, both of them do. Severe ethics problem there. The city attorney who hired Bridgett Brown, a tenant of Councilman Myron Lawson, as the city's lawyer on the Cleco case is also a tenant of Councilman Lawson himself.

But do they actually pay rent to Myron? Is that building owned by Myron? If true, why hasn't this been reported to the State Ethics Board?

Anonymous said...

Word on the street from those who seemed to know was that the rent was/is substantial (10-15K / mo)and is the vehicle for make cash transfers between the parties for services rendered. Bear in mind that $0.85 to 1.25 ft. is a moderate monthly rent range, so I am wondering what amount of square foootage they rent. There must be a basement because the first floor appears to be approximately 3000 sq ft. total that also houses the State Farm office.

So Kelvin Sanders and Bridgette Brown pay the Councilman an inflated rental rate as a back channel for political favors?

If this is true, it does need to be reported to the State Ethics Board, and if anyone knows it to be true, they have an obligation to report it.

Cover up? You brought up the subject of a cover up not I. I merly remarked on the ineptness of the trio in not even being aware of what they said in their own letter and then trying to BS the council. The bid should be totally rejected and rebid if Frankie's was informed it would be. Despino and Sylvester and Marcotte looked like deer caught in the headlight when Frankie showed the Council that their letter said the same as his. "Administrative error"

Prior to that Despino and Marcotte, with Sylvester amening them, went through a tap dance routine about how Frankie had been informed "officially" which turned to verbally that his bid was non-responsive.

If Frankie takes the situation further you lose. You folks been playing it your way far too long and now the "outsiders" such as Frankie are bringing the situation out in the open figuring the new Mayor is as good as his word and wants to clean up things.

If Frankie has proof that he was formally notified the bid would be rebid then it should. You are only as credible as your actions and continuing to blame your lack of knowledge and your administrative errors on vendors leaves you no credibility.

I like your wording "state bid law appears..."

Public records request? I have no dog in this particular fight. Why would I need to make a public records request. Frankie has his letter. No more documents needed. Maybe foolishly I still be believe court decisions are based upon fact not some "appears to have been". Frankie got screwed out of the work and the trio tried make his compliant go away with a tap dance routine. How will a public records request make that fact go away?

If Roy has any intelligence, and I believe he is very intelligence, he is aware of the "shuck and jive" Despino , Marcotte and Sylvester ran on the council and out of self preservation he should order the rebid.

I especially liked Despino reading a portion of the letter and then discovering it said the same thing Frankie's did. Hell the trio did not even know what their evidence said before they started attacting Frankie.

Check this out:

"While John Breaux was sitting at the feet of Edwin Edwards, learning how to become a proper Louisiana politician, I was working in this state, and suffering under the tax burden his mentor created. While John Breaux was campaigning for his first term in congress, I was watching as Edwards’ corrupt tentacles wrapped around each and every department in state government, turning each into a bribery, kickback, money machine.
When Breaux was vaulted into the U.S. Senate by the seedy political machine that Edwards created, the good people of Louisiana were becoming intimately acquainted with names like Clyde Vidrine, Tongson Park and Carlos Marcello. While I remained in my home state, Breaux stayed safely away from Louisiana lest the stench of his closest political ally splash on his tailored Washington suit."

I am wondering what the significance of someone's name being Piyush [or anything not WASP, perhaps] has in the upcoming gubernatorial election.


Absolutely nothing. However, somebody named Piyush that calls himself Bobby can lead people to believe either that he is embarrassed of his heritage, not honest, or a combination of the two.

3504 Consulting.... 3504 Masonic..... Why are Karen, Kelvin, and Bridgett all in the consulting business together?

All right, I'm listening...

How is it that someone with the name Piyush and the nickname Bobby has done that?

I looked at some of these LLCs and what is interesting to me is how many of them are no longer in good standing. It's easy and simple to file a report to ensure the business remains in good standing, even if the business collapsed or was sold. The fact that many of these companies never filed annual reports should raise more than a few eyebrows. What information are they withholding? What is the need for this type of clerical negligence?

What the heck do you want the local media to investigate? People with LLC's? Let's make a list. Send it to the dumb%*&ts themsleves at cenlamedia.blogspot.com
In the past the answer has been if you are too stupid to know forget it. Well that's not going to cut it. Put up or shut up. You better be prepared to make a list of the silk stockings and do the same LLC check too.

Just found this gem on there.."You know who we are. We're the ones that let you down by not reporting the stories you want to see. We are all ears. Tell us what to ask and how to hold the powerful accountable. We are ready to listen."

I, for one, am more than interested in seeing how to "silk stockings'" LLCs are directly tied to the city attorney, the city's Cleco attorney, and a city Councilman-at-Large... but I doubt you're going to find that.

It may be true that this type of shit happened in the past with other Councils, but that is no excuse for PRESENT unethical behavior.

I agree with what was said earlier... these people like to brag about how they're looking after people in low-income neighborhoods, but Kelvin and Myron seemed to have no problem giving their friend and office mate a financially lucrative appointment to a case she was hardly qualified to litigate.

It's already obvious Sanders had no problems with engaging in potentially unethical behavior when he landed his "wife" the housing authority contract. Hey, does anyone know who represents the housing authority as legal counsel????
