Shameful that Pelosi and Reid hate blacks so much that they won't fund these vital levee projects.
Excerpt from the article:
The whole length of the wall was stuffed with newspaper.
And when he confronted the contractor, the contractor blamed Washington for the substandard work.
He basically told me when Congress sent down the money, it would be repaired the proper way.
But during a recent trip to the area, two years later, it was apparent that didn't happen. Much of the newspaper had deteriorated or been eaten by bugs, but some still remained. In fact WWL cameras even captured the date May 21, 2006, on a page of the Parade magazine from the Times-Picayune.
Not Congress's fault, but rather a corrupt contractor.
