Disgraced former LSPC Chairman T. J. Doss and Vice Chairman Monica Manzella check into Watermark Hotel mere hours after the August 10, 2017 meeting of the LSPC meeting (photo courtesy of Louisiana Voice).
Today’s Sound Off Louisiana feature entails disgraced former Louisiana State Police Commission (LSPC) Chairman T. J. Doss having stiffed taxpayers for $5,700 for a one-night hotel stay (not including the cost of the hotel itself) with equally-disgraced former LSPC Vice Chairman Monica Manzella mere hours after the August 10, 2017 LSPC meeting. That expense resulted from a special election having to be called to replace Doss as the LSP employee representative on the LSPC.
In the following video, the rendezvous is first featured, followed by LSPC Executive Director Jason Hannaman providing the results of the primary election and the runoff date and total cost of the special election made necessary by Doss’ and Manzella’s disgraceful actions:

Let’s hope the LSP Troopers elect a more responsible representative to the LSPC this go round, even if that may mean defying the wishes of the Louisiana State Trooper’s Association (LSTA), which appears to be under investigation by the LSPC (and purportedly by the FBI as well) for illegal campaign contributions funneled through its Executive Director, David Young.
