Reliable sources say

Remember back when a bunch of reporters and pundits went out of their way to "debunk" the wild claims of some blogger trying to smear the good name of Steve Scalise?  They based it all on the word of this guy.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has charged Kenny Knight, a longtime associate of former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, with running a “pill mill” out of a New Orleans East pain management clinic.

A federal judge Thursday unsealed a 22-page criminal complaint that accuses Knight of conspiring with Dr. Barbara A. Bruce to dole out prescription painkillers to friends and patients without conducting the required medical exams.

Knight’s business, the Axcess Medical Clinic on Lake Forest Boulevard, took only cash and attracted addicts who traveled for hours to get to it, according to the DEA.
So here's Lamar today with a little bit of I-Told-You-SO as well as this extra point. 
One question that continues to remain unanswered is whether Cameron Henry, now a top Republican in the state legislature, had accompanied Steve Scalise to this hate group meeting when he served as an aide to the then-State Rep. Scailse; Henry, thus far, has refused comment.
Don't worry about Henry. He'll be okay just the same way Scalise is.  This is because there's always a critical mass of establishment press willing to give "the benefit of the doubt" to the most obviously horrendous people in the name of 1) sucking up to power and 2) maintaining the "he said/she said" pretense of their lazy, cowardly trade.   It might be burning cross, but "others are calling it a 'T' post" Because "both sides" say a thing, who knows what's true?
