Edmonson cover-up continues Thursday, Aug 14 2014
He was refused a public document
The reason given by the La. State Police Retirement System for not meeting until September 4 to consider the rip-off of the pension system via SB 294 was that they were waiting on a report from their lawyers.
Wednesday, we learned that was a blatant lie. They already have the report.
State Treasurer John Kennedy, a member of the LSPRS Board, was refused a copy of the report by the board’s Executive Director Irwin Felps. As a result Kennedy fired off a formal Public Records Request for the document.
Whether Kennedy has any luck in getting the board to comply with the Public Records Law is iffy.
Superintendent of La. State Police Mike Edmonson, who is the beneficiary of the rip-off, controls the board via five subordinates and one contractor to the LSP on the 11-member board. Three members of the board are controlled by Bobby Jindal.
Thus, Kennedy is clearly out-voted at least 9 to 2. More likely the vote will be 10 to 1 against since no other member of the board has agreed to support a lawsuit contesting the constitutionality of SB 294.
By the time we citizens, who paid for the report, see it on September 4 (Assuming the board has a quorum.), it will have been “sanitized” by Edmonson’s subordinate and LSP lawyer, Frank Blackburn. Blackburn is a key member of “Dork Dynasty” (Term used by working Troopers to refer to Edmonson and his henchmen.). It’s unlikely that Blackburn will want to eat breakfast each morning at the State Police Commissary at another table.
Folks, once again, YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP!
More later. Ever heard of the “49-5 Club” at the State Police Headquarters?
