Corruption reaching all new depths in New Orleans

Calling city officials in New Orleans a bunch of snakes is an insult to snakedom.  Think rather of the lowest form of crawling vermin, in a wheel rut below the gutter, and digging just as fast as they can.
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.
How much stuff are we talking about here?

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.

The donations filled a large pickup truck four times. "It was an awful lot of stuff," Caraway said.

So do we doubt that maybe the levee might have been substandard?  No, we do not.
