Public Servants…

Serving themselves:

BATON ROUGE, La. — Police found cases of food, clothing and tools intended for hurricane victims at the home of the chief administrative officer for a New Orleans suburb, authorities said Wednesday.
Officers searched Cedric Floyd’s home because of complaints that city workers were helping themselves to donations for hurricane victims. Floyd, who runs the day-to-day operations in the suburb of Kenner, was in charge of distributing the goods.

I’m sure he’s the victim of a misunderstanding.
Kind of an interesting fellow, though:

CAO Floyd was the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Data Center, a national demographics information system company specializing in Redistricting of Election Districts.

Hmm, there’s something about that line of work that just screams corruption.
But maybe I’m just cynical.
It seems he liked to use his city credit card though:

Sparks began flying as McMyne set up displays showing dozens of credit card bills from Mayor Capitano and CAO Floyd – expenses that did not include information on the business purpose of the bills.

Seems like he’s got some more explaining to do now.
