CLICK HERE for report by LSP Terrorism Unit after LALB Attorney Anna Dow advised Executive Director Sandy Edmonds to call them to Burns’ house based on defamatory statements made by Ms. Dow (for which Mr. Burns is suing Dow), and after such guidance was given to Dow by Assistant A. G. Richard McGimsey for which he made no effort whatsoever to obtain any facts of the matter prior to giving his “good friend” Anna Dow said guidance.

CLICK HERE for Louisiana Inspector General report on LALB and Interior Design Board’s payroll fraud on the part of their Executive Director, Sandy Edmonds.  Note:  The report was greatly watered down under direct orders of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who refused to sign off on the report until it was in its publicly-released format which, nevertheless, cites Edmonds for reporting being on the job while “performing no public purpose” and lying to investigators about the practice.  For her deceit, they recommended “appropriate disciplinary action up to and including termination.”  Of course, given the corrupt nature of both these boards, the report was never even discussed at any meeting of either board!
