commerce & industry board appoints mike thompson its chairman

UPDATE 26 june 2008: mike thompson, terry denmon and william coenen indicted

====the joke that is louisiana state government continues on...

so we were listening to moon griffon this morning and he happened to mention that mike thompson who is the brother of reservoir thug la state representative francis c thompson. (see our post here for a jumping off point on this story). anyway, we have to ask what could this guy possibly know about commerce and industry? this is just another glaring in your face example of louisiana's corruption. here we have a guy mike thompson he and his brother francis c thompson their family business is stealing people's land to build reservoirs - reservoirs which contain high end real estate developments on them and how are they rewarded? by thompson's brother being appointed chairman of the states commerce and industry board. do you really think that these people care about legitimate commerce and industry? no of course not they are all about enriching themselves and their cronies. this is shameful and its pitiful and the joke is on us the people of louisiana for allowing this to happen.

note: the state board of commerce and industry advises the la. department of economic development. the louisiana department of economic development according to their website is "The state agency charged with attracting new business and industry to Louisiana and providing economic development services to resident industry, ..."
