Check out the second comment:
"Thirty-six of the 45-person jury pool answered a questionnaire that "they believe that Mr. Bordelon is guilty, that public officials who have been indicted are probably guilty "That's too true. I thought the most prejudicial thing in the courtroom was Mr. Small's appearance there.
Uhhh, Mike, 45 of the 45 jurors , if asked, would believe the person guilty because they hired you.
A dubious distinction to be sure, but nonetheless factual.
You're that good.
On the other hand, Lyman says it's best to have a good lawyer before you tell the Feds more than your name. There are too many traps they can lay which can result in conflicting testimony and perjury charges.
Back to the case, that 16-month delay before the report to the Louisiana Board of Ethics looks funny.
