Retired LSP Trooper Leon “Bucky” Millet
On January 10, 2019, retired LSP Trooper Leon “Bucky” Millet called for the heads of three members of the Louisiana State Police Commission (LSPC). Millet, in filing a formal, written complaint dated the previous day, January 9, 2019, alleged improper campaign contributions on the parts of three (3) LSPC members with supporting documentation as follows: Harold Pierite (see pages 4, 5, and 6); Jarrod Caruso-Riecke (see page 2); and Eulis Siemen, Jr. (see pages 2 and 4).
At the next LSPC meeting of February 14, 2019, member Riecke returned fire by staunchly defending his innocence and lodging an allegation of “grandstanding” against Millet in the process. Prior to Riecke’s February 14, 2019 public statements, Sound Off Louisiana, on January 22, 2019, provided all of the material Riecke asserts supports his innocence.
At the LSPC meeting of Thursday, September 12, 2019, Millet, clearly flustered by the fact that Gov. John Bel Edwards has sat on his written complaint far longer than the Louisiana Constitution dictates he should have taken action on it, vented his frustration both at the LSPC and Gov. Edwards in lodging the claim that neither has followed Louisiana’s Constitution. Millet took a further jab at Gov. Edwards in stating that, “I can only assume that the Governor’s Honor Code does not apply in an election year.” Millet’s presentation and the LSPC’s commentary back are depicted in the following video:
Millet vents his frustration in asserting that neither the LSPC members nor Gov. Edwards is adhering to Louisiana’s Constitution entailing his written complaint.
