According to a complaint filed with the St. Landry Parish Sheriff's office on Monday night, the FBI may be investigating two school board members. The FBI would not confirm, nor deny, but an agent does tell us no arrests have been made regarding this incident. According to the complaint, made just before midnight, an agent told deputies he was working a sting operation at Interim Joseph Cassimere's house in Washington, LA. The complaint involved an allegation of board members John Miller and Quincy Richard trying to extort money from Joseph Cassimere in exchange for their vote in the Wednesday night election. The complaint indicates that the FBI agent told Miller and Richard to stay away from Cassimere, and he told Cassimere if either school board member tried to contact him, he should call the Sheriff's Office.
Here's a copy of the complaint.
