Description

The Advocate "discovered that state casino board members were charging the public for up to $1,200 a month rental fees for housing they used while attending weekly board meetings in New Orleans and that there were problems with how three of the four were doing it. One member had his mother buy a French Quarter condo, and used his rental reimbursement to pay the note. Another was charging rent for using a condo he already owned with others. A third let her son-in-law and daughter move into the apartment she rented with public funds."
