Baton-Rouge, Saint-Onge, Louisianne


Prefect Marie-Claire Gildersleeve announced today that the investigation of graft in the Prefecture of Saint-Onge is on-going. “We’ve found evidence of graft at many levels. A number of our MP’s have been implicated, sadly, but the investigation will go forward.”

Notable MP’s that have been implicated are the representatives from La Salle, MP Claude DeBellevue, and MP Robert Chappuis. From Côte de Chataigne MP’s Yves Chaisson, and Samuel Fremaux. Rumor suggests that Louis Arcenaux (MP Loire-Neuf) may also be implicated.

In the official press release from the prefect’s office, official charges have not yet been filed against the MP’s but the Procureur will most likely bring charges of délits graves against the offending MP’s, including Bribery, Extortion, and possibly Criminal Negligence for those that directly affected the state of the levees around New Orleans.

As part of her findings, Mme. Gildersleeve has addressed a public letter to President Young demanding that he conduct a similar investigation nation-wide to root out graft. “Louisianne may have been a kleptocracy in times past, but I believe that the public is tired of it, as are we, their highest elected leaders.” Gildersleeve stated. “I’ve heard Louisianne referred to as a Helvetian minceloaf with a good crust. Well, It’s time ti clean out the unsavory parts of this minceloaf to make it edible again.”
