  1. This seems to be a repeating occurrence within this administration. I too worked under Edwards and uncovered significant ongoing graft and corruption. I too, along with Pupera and Street, was told by Carbo, Et. al. in the Edwards Administration to shut the f### up. I refused to do so and lost my job, my reputation and my career. Pupera and Street shut the f### up on command and they still have jobs, I wasnt as fortunate or learned in how busineess is conducted in Louisiana. Its a losing battle from the start, when LA law only provides relief and protection for whistleblowers through a process set up and administered through the Ethics Administration, and Edwards controls the appointments to the Board of Ethics, whistleblower protection is only an illusion in Louisiana. I’m starting to think should you desire to maintain your employment in Louisiana. you need to think and act like a criminal. And whatver you do, make sure you shut the f### up.
