On Tuesday THE DEAD PELICAN broke a story about New Orleans Mayoral candidate Ron Forman allowing an alleged child rapist to sponsor activities at the Audubon Children's Zoo.
To this date the sponsorship is still posted on the Audubon website:
The story here: http://www.thedeadpelican.com/foreman.htm seems to have drawn a collective yawn from the local media.
Previous media coverage of the allegations is pretty vivid and we would suggest you not read it if you have a weak stomach:
"civil lawyers for the child allege in court documents that Cenac used his money and power -- and high-level managers at Cenac Towing Co. -- to cover up molestations of other juvenile victims and sexual harassment of an unspecified number of adult male employees.
In addition, authorities charge that two weeks before law enforcement personnel descended on Cenac's ranch in the small Lafourche Parish community of Gheens to arrest him on the sexual assault charges, the multi-millionaire struck and killed a Houma man, then fled home and washed his Toyota Sequoia in an effort to hide any trace of human remains."

"A civil lawsuit that accuses an area businessman of raping a 4-year-old boy was postponed until March, attorneys for both sides said Wednesday."
