Contractor Billy Broussard, mere moments after he filed a complaint against his former attorney, Robin Sylvester, with the Louisiana Office of Disciplinary Counsel on Monday, March 11, 2019.
Even as this feature is being composed, Congress is nearing finalization on a Corona Virus Aid Package estimated to be between $1 trillion and $2 trillion. Larry Kudlow, Director of the U. S. National Economic Council, stated over the weekend that he expects the relief package to exceed $2 trillion, which is approximately 10% of the United States’ entire GDP for this year!
On Tuesday, March 17, 2020, contractor Billy Broussard, expressing a desire to be known only as “a former client of Attorney General Jeff Landry,” appeared on Louisiana’s most prominent conservative radio talk-show, the Moon Griffon’s show, to insist upon far better accountability for Louisiana’s share of the funds than the level of accountability (or near total lack thereof) which Broussard claims transpired in the aftermath of Hurricane Rita. Let’s take just a few minutes to listen to the exchange between Broussard (whom Griffon identified as “John” as Broussard was informed “everyone has to have a name, so we’ll call you “John”), and Griffon:
Contractor Billy Broussard (a/k/a “A former client of Attorney General Jeff Landry” a/k/a “John”) discusses accountability for Louisiana’s upcoming Corona relief package with Moon Griffon.
Now, anybody who has been a Sound Off Louisiana subscriber for any length of time (or even just casually peruses our historical features) knows that we’ve devoted more features to Broussard and his strong evidence that he was allegedly cheated out of over $1 million for work he performed in the aftermath of Hurricane Rita than any other matter or individual on whom we have reported. Accordingly, we’re going to keep this post brief by merely itemizing prior posts in chronological order (plus a couple of related features on Calcasieu Parish DA John DeRosier who serves as legal counsel for governmental entities which Broussard alleges colluded to cheat him). In doing so, subscribers (particularly relatively new ones) can pick and choose which ones they may wish to explore in more detail. After all, since we’re all having to be held captive in our homes (for the most part) for the time being, some of this material may prove most interesting and a way to kill a few hours of the day!:
March 8, 2017: 14th JDC Judge David Ritchie advises Broussard to “choose your attorney carefully” rather than utilizing an attorney like Jeff Landry. [Sidebar: In our opinion, demonstrating that sort of rank prejudicial commentary made by a state district judge regarding an attorney appearing before him, especially when uttered in open court (see bottom of second page here) ought to be grounds for the whole case to have been reheard by a different judge]!
May 1, 2018: Calcasieu Parish DA John DeRosier testifies that, if Louisiana’s 10-person jury rule is “a vestige of slavery,” then “it is what it is.” (Note: The vast majority of this post focuses on Broussard and all of the extensive efforts to block any form of investigation into just what transpired entailing his cleanup operations in the aftermath of Hurricane Rita).
February 10, 2019: At that same Legislative Auditor’s meeting, Broussard stuns everyone in attendance by playing an audio tape of former GOHSEP Deputy Director Mark DeBosier stating (regarding the Legislative Auditor’s Office): “They’ll just close their eyes, stick their fingers in their ears, and we make sure there’s no fingerprints on it.” [On a personal note, Sound Off Louisiana founder Robert Burns views this as the all-time best feature Sound Off has ever published in its history).
March 7, 2019: Frustrated with Sylvester’s sudden termination of her representation of Broussard, he sends her a certified letter demanding that she provide the name of her malpractice insurance carrier.
November 11, 2019: Calcasieu Parish DA John DeRosier is the focus of a major investigative feature outlining his office’s very obvious money-laundering operations entailing retail gift cards. [Note: DeRosier currently finds himself the subject of an audit by the Legislative Auditor’s Office].
So, anyone can readily see that we mean what we say when we say we’ve reported on Broussard and his subject matter more than any other subject or individual at Sound Off Louisiana. When we utter those words, they are not mere idle words. In our opinion, neither is Broussard’s admonition entailing accountability for the upcoming massive stimulus package Louisiana is about to obtain!
