So the Legislature is sending a message in their own way that Segar and Ausberry should've been fired.

Do I even need to guess what party these legislators belong to?

They definitely should have been. Their suspensions were an absolute joke.

They should have been but it’s pretty obvious why they haven’t been at this point

It also goes without saying what party composes the committee demanding errbody from LSU appear before them.

The state representative's comments seem directed towards Verge (calling him out by name) more than anyone else.

Freeman was also critical of LSU deputy athletic director Verge Ausberry, who has told the committee he is out of town and has not yet sent a letter of testimony.

Ausberry learned from the best in Woodward ...



I sure hope Orgeron survives this. I want Orgeron at LSU

From a legal perspective, does a Senate Select Committee have any actual authority here other than recommendations?

Assuming not, could they hold enough political clout to otherwise effect changes like this?

as far as firing Orgeron? No

I do believe there is some sort of mechanism where they can legally subpoena Orgeron to testify. But this is a senate committee, not a court, so they don't really have any authority to "punish" him for anything except for not honoring the subpoena.

quote:

Rule 13.15. Standing committees; subpoena power, punishment for contempt

Each standing committee established by Rule 13.1 and each joint committee established pursuant to the authority granted in Rule 13.12, and any subcommittee of either, is hereby specifically and expressly granted the power and authority, with the written approval of the President, to hold hearings, subpoena witnesses, administer oaths, require the production of books and records, and to do all other things necessary to accomplish the purposes of the study, hearing, or investigation assigned to it by the Senate or by the Legislature or by a majority of the members of the committee. However, if a study or investigation is undertaken during the interim between sessions, a subpoena or a subpoena duces tecum shall issue only upon the approval of a majority of all the members of the standing committee and of the President and upon the rendition of a special order of the Nineteenth Judicial District Court or of any other judicial district court, subject to general rules of venue, authorizing the committee to issue the subpoena or subpoena duces tecum, in which order the court may prescribe such requirements and conditions as it may consider just and reasonable. In the event a subpoena or subpoena duces tecum is not honored, the standing committee or joint committee also shall have the power to punish for contempt and to provide for the prosecution of any individual for refusal to testify, false swearing, or perjury before the committee or subcommittee in accordance with law.


And let's be honest, do we want to live in a world where a woke senate committee can start firing state employees based on their recommendations? I know I don't want to open up that box

It was bizarre last week. The committee was asking LSU's board members (those at the meeting) plus DeCuir (LSU's lawyer) just who the board is accountable to and who they report to.

It was like the committee was fishing for answers as to how they could hold the board accountable.

One would hope this committee does a better job of studying up and preparing for their next round of questioning.

Somehow I missed this earlier:

quote:

Andrea Gallo
@aegallo
Attorneys for Sharon Lewis say she will testify at #lalege committee hearing tomorrow if they call her



Now LSU's blanket announcement that no employees should testify makes a little more sense.

Wonder if Lewis DGAF and testifies anyway.

They have to invite her first. Honestly I was shocked they did not. Gloria Scott claimed Lewis was in the middle of Coach O calling her.

Interdasting.

I didn't realize they were alleging mail fraud and bribery in their lawsuit.

Does he have that right?
