Amal Alamuddin was beautiful and accomplished and, well, interesting— long before she ever met Hollywood’s aging Lothario actor, George Clooney, and accepting a honking big diamond engagement ring from him.

Former Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH) Secretary Bruce Greenstein has been indicted by the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office on nine counts of perjury stemming from a lengthy investigation of his involvement in the awarding of a $183 million contract to a company for which he once worked.
