    Louisiana Officials Indicted Before Katrina Hit
    Federal audits found dubious expenditures by the state's emergency preparedness agency, which will administer FEMA hurricane aid.

    By Ken Silverstein and Josh Meyer, Times Staff Writers


    WASHINGTON — Senior officials in Louisiana's emergency planning agency already were awaiting trial over allegations stemming from a federal investigation into waste, mismanagement and missing funds when Hurricane Katrina struck.

    And federal auditors are still trying to track as much as $60 million in unaccounted for funds that were funneled to the state from the Federal Emergency Management Agency dating back to 1998.

    I think I'd do so some fraud investigation before I sent a $200 billion check down there. How about some SERIOUS fraud investigation at all levels of government.

    With that much fraud and corruption down there, I would have a very hard time believing all that poverty down there is because the folks are too lazy to work, as some here in other threads seem to believe.
