PONZI SIGN

It’s been more than ten years since the Stanford Group was shut down, having bilked over 1000 Louisiana investors out of their life’s savings.  Lawsuits have been filed against the Securities and Exchange Commission for not providing proper regulatory oversight.  But a strong case can be made that there is major culpability on the part of a state agency, the Office of Financial Institutions.  And we are talking about Louisiana taxpayers being potentially hit with a bill that could approach $800 million.

America, as I know it, died yesterday right in front of our eyes when Attorney General Bill Barr displayed his fealty to the man who put him back into the national spotlight.

Also falling before our eyes were the lessons of Watergate.

What has kept this country above all other nations has been our judicial system integrity and our governmental checks and balances.

  • I am a member of neither the Louisiana Press Association (LPA) nor the CITY CLUB of BATON ROUGE, so, I truthfully debated if it was my place to say anything.

But after having mulled it over for a full day, I’ve decided to proceed because:

  • The manner in which the City Club treated Gov. John Bel Edwards was too shabby to let slide without comment, and,
