LA Legislature appropriates grant money to corp. that doesn't exist.
GOP Rep's son forms corporation of that exact name, demands payment.

Blanco pressed on YMCA money, Nonprofit created to thwart Shepherd

After Gov. Kathleen Blanco refused to kill an 11th-hour state budget request by state Sen. Derrick Shepherd for $200,000 to build a YMCA in Harvey, a River Ridge businessman has asked Blanco to give the money to a nonprofit he formed to keep it away from Shepherd.

Michael Bowler, the son of Rep. Shirley Bowler, R-Harahan, asked Blanco on Tuesday to send a check from the state's general fund to A Greater New Orleans Service Corp., which he incorporated June 3 after learning that Shepherd had directed the cash to that group through House Bill 822, an early vehicle for the expenditure that died during the session.

There was no entity by that name in state records at the time, and Michael Bowler said he jumped to incorporate it.
