I believe that in 1996 you published in the Times-Picayune an article on Mamoulides entitled “Deadbeat D.A.”. Things are starting to heat up in this area.

Could you please enlighten me about the personal fallout as far as you were concerned after you published this article? Did you get pressured? Rewarded? Punished?

Do you have any insights you care to share on the whole Jefferson Parish nest of politico-thieves?
