  5. Is the Bill Cassidy LSU billing row over or rigged ?Read the original story w/Photo

    Thursday | BayouBuzz.com

    Is the "jigged-up" Bill Cassidy LSU double-pay controversy over, dead and gone, as at least one conservative commentator claims? Or, has a just-released LSU audit of the "scandal" that arose during the last moments of the very hotly contested election between former US Senator Mary Landrieu and then US Rreepsentative Cassidy, been rigged due to powerful influences? Apparently, according to the public sentiments of the two bloggers who broke the story, Lamar White Jr. and Jason Berry, the audit is worthless. Conservatives and those backing Cassidy during the 2014 election felt the charges leveled against Cassidy were trumped-up and bogus and cite the LSU audit as vindicating Cassidy.

    Bill Cassidy's work at LSU wasn't 'adequately documented,' but investigation reveals he earned his salary: Internal LSU report WASHINGTON -- An internal LSU review of Bill Cassidy's part-time medical employment for the LSU Health Sciences Center finds his work wasn't "adequately documented," but "sufficient facts and information exist to conclude he provided services "equal to at least that of his compensation." The report followed allegations by Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., his opponent in the 2014 Louisiana Senate race, and others that Cassidy, a physician working part-time while serving in the House of Representatives, may not have performed the required hours to justify his $20,000 salary.
