In a revolving door of corruption and mismanagement of taxpayer money, the ethically challenged Louisiana Attorney General, Buddy Caldwell, has stepped into another political dog pile. Past questions have been raised concerning the ties to Caldwell, political contributions and the use of consultants in the AG's office. Now, more information has been made available that highlight how much money is being paid to consultants that are working for Caldwell, specifically on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill that occurred over 5 years ago.
A chart on the Louisiana Record website highlights the gross mismanagement of taxpayer money paid to these consultants and the subsequent political contributions to Caldwell. Deepwater Horizon billings total nearly $26 million dollars and subsequent political contributions to Caldwell from the attorneys involved in the billings total over $186 million dollars.
Smell of "quid pro quo" much?
