LSU BOS member Jack Lawton is mentioned in the article. The Lawton family name is on the Lawton Room at Tiger Stadium. Former LSU footballer and lawyer Thad Minaldi is closely associated with that family. I've heard him referred to as sort of a consigliere to the Lawtons. I don't know about that, but he's been thick with them going way, way back.
His carefully crafted PR image as a "reformer" notwithstanding, I don't expect our current guvnah to do any more about this than his predecessors have.
