Has done a much better job than his predecessor at weeding out corruption, and putting the criminals away.

Now we'll get a good Democrat replacement in Nola for the next four years.

can you quantify that for me? I know nothing about Letten and I'm just curious how much better things are now than prior to him being in that position.

Eddie Jordan was his predecessor, being credited with a better performance than EJ's performance isn't great praise. But you can probably quantify that on any basis you desire. Convictions, conviction rates, office efficiency, public perception,

Letten has done a very good job, but he has to go based upon the behavior of his key assistants even if he was clueless about their behavior.

The office is in major disarray, appeals are going to be made for retrials, convictions possibly set aside. It is going to cost the taxpayers big dollars (at least form the tax payer perspective) It is also IMHO distressing for prosecutors to be putting cops in jail for misjudgments in the heat of the moment, when they spend years violating their ethical codes if not the laws of the state and republic with the time to give much reflection to their violations.


He is the boss, it happened under his watch, he has to take responsibility.

Why do you think he is resigning if it isn't necessary?

Been a big supporter but once it came out he knew of the assistants "posting names" on NOLA.com I knew he'd have to go


hopefully it doesn't slow the Nagin prison train down

I'm afraid the replacement will screw up the Nagin trial and he'll walk away scott free, back to the Chocolate City.
