He's gotten out for a few weekend visits, but as far as I know he is still in there.

This is correct.



He did have an 8 or 9 day pass a few weeks ago.

But he remains in Oakdale until mid-January, then 6 months in a halfway house. The location of which is yet to be determined.

You can expect some press coverage of his release, and other coverage, due to human interest. But for the most part, he plans to do alot of traveling when he gets out.

Oh there is no doubt, if I'm ever given the opportunity to be really shady, I'd be down. Best if I continue to work on the edge of politics...

Yeah in most upscale prisons your allowed "sex" visits. It is supposed to keep the violence down, because you get your anger out on the tang...

FWIW Louisiana Politicians are still corrupt as hell. IF you think Jindal and the other politicians aren't doing some shady things than your kidding yourself. The truth is a vast majority of politicians are corrupt, just the nature of the beast.

There is a running joke with my friends involved in politics that I'm the future Sheriff of West Baton Rouge Parish...

I'm going to have an All-Star Team...there is no doubt. Mike Cazes better watch his back, I'm coming.

He was the fricking governor. You knew what he did but didn't remember his name? Just admit you're 14.

If what he did was committed by any ordinary citizen, that citizen would be serving a big term in jail. EE will leave prison an extremely wealthy man. There is no way in hell that the feds got all of the money that EE got with his shady deals.

Correct. He is richer now than when he went in due to compounding interest on his cash.
