More toe-tappin' Republican fun, this time in Louisiana
Edited on Fri Oct-05-07 02:21 PM by KamaAina
The hits just keep on comin'...

http://www.nola.com/news/t-p/frontpage/index.ssf?/base/...

St. Bernard Parish (county) Councilman Joey DiFatta, who on Thursday withdrew from the 1st Senate District campaign, has been stopped twice since 1996 for suspicion of engaging in lewd behavior in public restrooms in Jefferson Parish, records obtained by The Times-Picayune show....

The report states that DiFatta watched a man use the bathroom while peering through a hole in a bathroom stall. The man held DiFatta until police arrived, at which time he was issued the misdemeanor summons and ordered to appear in court....

The report said DiFatta slid his foot into the deputy's stall and tapped the deputy's foot. In the report, Conley noted that such activity is common among men to indicate a willingness to participate in sex.

The deputy inside the stall, Detective Wayne Couvillion, responded by tapping his foot, and DiFatta reached under the partition and began to rub the deputy's leg, the report states.


If only the officer had been named Mancuso, like the one who pulled similar duty in the New Orleans classic "A Confederacy of Dunces"...

This has been today's Louisiana Republican Family Values Minute, brought to you by Huggies...

edit: As is so often the case, the article from the paper I used to call the "Cat Box Liner" somehow neglects to mention the word "Republican". From the list of qualified candidates:

"Joey" DiFatta, R-Chalmette

as if there were ever any doubt. :P

5. 'DiFatta also noted that the stress from enduring Katrina may have gotten to him'
Yes, hurricanes bring out all kinds of behavior that weren't there beforehand.

8. Apparently it got to him retroactively
Kenner police issued a misdemeanor summons to DiFatta in September 1996 in connection with a peeping Tom incident in a men's bathroom at the former Mervyn's department store at The Esplanade mall, according to a Kenner Police Department incident report obtained by The Times-Picayune....

In the second incident, Jefferson Parish deputies working an undercover detail in a men's bathroom at Dillard's at Lakeside Shopping Center in March 2000 stopped DiFatta after he indicated a desire to engage in sex with an undercover deputy in an adjoining bathroom stall, according to an interoffice memorandum written by Sgt. Keith Conley, one of the deputies involved in the investigation.


Let me guess... he'd been having premonitions for nearly ten years that a hurricane was going to strike in 2005? :sarcasm:
