Eddie Jordan is going down like the Titanic
Felt bowler hat from the Titanic
Jordan has become a plague upon his own house. We all knew he looked out for criminals... Now it's just official.
When even Cynthia Hedge-Morrell is throwing you under the bus, you've got some serious problems.
I like DA Connick's theory that all of his woes can be traced back to firing of the investigators. The thesis holds more and more credibility as time goes on. Letting William Jefferson's Chief of Staff run his transition team was a fatal mistake and he has no one to blame but himself for that fuckup.
This will probably be the end of him. These two are just grand standing to their constituency, but think about it: who at the state level is going to vote AGAINST impeaching Jordan? Nobody outside of New Orleans. The only reason I can see that this won't take him down is if Officer Dukes passes away. I'm sure everyone (especially Eddie Jordan) is praying for Officer Dukes to recover. He's still in critical condition, as far as I know. I think that if Dukes dies, there's no way Jordan can avoid jail time. Sheltering a cop killer is one thing that NOBODY will abide by.
Oh yeah, and in the meantime, NOPD/DA Office relations will be just fine and peachy.
