Shady Dealings in Oregon?


13 Fructidor, CCXIII


While visiting Oregon last week as part of his tour to strengthen the border crossings of Nouvelle Cournouaille and protect against possible infiltration by Deseret insurgents, M. Albert Didier, Acting-Prefect is reputed to have visited with Jaime Bush, exiled in Oregon since the end of the 2004 Florida War.

While this sighting has not been certified, it has greatly damaged M. Didier’s standings in the polls. His position is further weakened as the ongoing investigation as to the failed levees of Nouvelle Orleans suggest that they were destroyed using mining explosives, several of whose end caps have come from sites in the newly acquired Alpes Argentés.

Shortly after news of this visit came to light today, other evidence of graft has surfaced. Anatole Desse, Maire of Nouvelle Orleans stands accused of grafting hundreds of thousands of écus in gifts from various construction companies vying for the construction bids for M. Desse’s project to raise Nouvelle Orleans’ street levels.

Pundits are quick to cite the link of M. Desse and M. Didier, both members of the former Parti Républicain Libre (PRL) and new Législateurs de la Moralité Chrétienne (LMC). LMC party leadership has denounced claims of graft, but demand that a full investigation be conducted into both of these allegations.

President Young was unavailable for direct comment, as he was surveying the disaster area. An aide relayed that M. Young was “deeply concerned as to the state of affairs,” and that he wishes “quick and proper solution to these awful, but sadly, not unusual allegations.” The aide quipped that he was sure commentary of Martians would be forthcoming.

Marie-Claire Gildersleeve, Prefect of Saint-Onge has appointed Vice-Maire Raymond Nagin to serve as Mayor of Nouvelle Orleans for the duration of this crisis and the investigation against M. Desse.
