Two More Morial Cronies Plead Guilty

Two more friends of former Mayor Marc Morial have pled guilty to corruption charges. Restauranteur Stan "Pampy" Barre and Kerry Decay, the city's former director of property management, pled guilty on Sunday morning. They looted a massive energy savings contract that Morial awarded just before leaving office. Everyone has been focusing on the fraud involved in the contracting process, but I have not seen much interest in the contract itself to see what if any energy savings the city received for the millions of dollars paid. My bet is the entire contract was a scam designed solely to enrich the Mayor and his friends and that the energy savings, if any, are minimal.
