    don’t get too excited. look who is likely to replace him: a very young lawyer appointed by the hat himself. and she’s been accused of tampering with evidence. we may be out of the fat and into the fire.

    Keva Landrum? I have not heard anything about tampering. Where’d you get that info from?

    It’s not Gaynell WIlliams now so don’t get them confused.

    on the accusations, see “In re: Lionel “Lon” Burns,” Case number 01-KK-1080, opinion 11/28/01, from the Louisiana Supreme Court.

    NOTUG,

    You had some bad info my friend.

    From Nola.com:

    A native New Orleanian who earned a law degree at Tulane University, Landrum has handled several high-profile cases during her nine years in the district attorney’s office, working for Jordan and his predecessor, Harry Connick. She was chief of the Juvenile Division and deputy chief of trials before being named chief of screening in July. The screening division is important, as those are the prosecutors who review arrests made by the New Orleans Department and determine whether charges should be brought.

    Last month, Landrum and Val Solino both were named temporary first assistant district attorneys. The two were selected to fill in for Gaynell Williams, who took a leave to run for a Criminal District Court judgeship. Williams finished third in that race.

    I can only find the opinion of Johnson, J concurring. No mention of who the prosecuter was/is nor what penalties may have been handed down. Do not know the case, but napkins in the back pocket? WTF? will research but seems to be a possible more justice for the criminal than anything else but I’ll keep looking

    I’ll bet this resignation has more to do with the kid who ran to his house after attempting robbery than it does with the money he can’t pay…

    Heather,

    It’s all about that kid running to his house. Nothing more, don’t let the “judgement” talk fool you.

    A kid goes to the DA’s house, says he’s been in a hit n run, someone hit him, Jordan does nothing but turn around and go to his bedroom?

    Bottom line on this is the BLACK community finally had enough and are forcing this. The criminal running to the DA’s house was the final straw for the black community. Only took 2 years too long but finally they stood up en masse.

    I do think the city should pay the judgment. The city elected him so they are responsible. But more than that, I feel like the people of New Orleans need to understand that if you vote a piece of shit into office then there may be repercussions. It isn’t the State or the Feds responsibility to pay this settlement – to me it rests solely on the shoulders of the city and more specifically the electorate since they put him in office and he was acting as a representative of them. And since it seems pretty clear that William Jefferson was pulling the strings to make it happen, that only supports my argument that the electorate of Orleans Parish are responsible for this debt. All of it should be paid and it should be pain now.

    Of course I also think the city should sue Jordan to get the money back, but that seems like a waste of time since he was not found personally liable. Besides, he was allowed to remain in office for too long so it looks like tacit complacency. And Jefferson was re-elected so apparently the electorate agrees with everything he’s done.

    So pay up, bitches.

    Also, consider if the race of everyone involved was reversed. Would the discussion be different? It’s hard to argue it wouldn’t be different. I’m not suggesting whether payment is rendered would be different – I’m just saying the discussion would probably be a lot different.

    Eddie Jordan had be US Attorney when that office prosecuted Gov. Edwards, something the government had failed to do previously despite the seemingly obvious corruption under his watch.

    Meanwhile, Jefferson doesn’t represent all of Orleans Parish, if you’ll check. I don’t live in his district, didn’t vote to reelect him, nor did thousands of others here.
