Is Moret in line for #2 spot at LSU? Wednesday, May 22 2013
Monday, LSU dodged a bullet when it was announced by the LSU Board of Supervisors that the ethically-challenged Stephen Moret would not be named as the new president/chancellor.
Credit for them not selecting Moret goes to you, the public, for the outcry against him.
That was the good news.
The bad news is that now word is circulating that Moret will be selected for the number two spot in the LSU System.
That job will be to actually run the LSU System. In other words, the new president, King Alexander, will be the public face of LSU, but Moret, a Bobby Jindal sycophant, will be in charge.
I told you so
As anticipated, I heard from within the LSU System that I had been wrong in suggesting Moret was in line to be the next president/chancellor. Hearing the childish “I told you so” simply goes with the territory.
Given the leges dislike (an understatement) for Moret coupled with his involvement in Jindal’s tax swap; it is unlikely that Moret would be named as LSU’s number two person until after the lege session this summer.
Musta hit a nerve
Considering the secrecy of the leadership selection process at my Alma mater, I sought to get to the bottom of the Moret rumors.
Rather than get answers from the LSU BOS about the Moret rumor, I received a sarcastic, condescending, profanity-laced response. In other words, I got hit with everything, but a denial.
One can only assume that I hit a nerve.
If you care about LSU, please remain on-guard for Moret.
