8 thoughts on “Karen “gadfly” Gadbois: nationally recognized badass

  1. Awesome article. Good for Karen! Finally, an article about bloggers that acknowledges that they can actually do good things.
    And doesn’t Nagin look like a second-rate asshat? Hee.

  2. Meanwhile Adam Nossiter is back on his “natvie New Orleanians are backward fucktards” hobby horse.
    It helped that Ms. Gadbois is an outsider, an energetic relative newcomer from Boston — she came here in 2002 — with a professed love for the city that easily outpaces the resignation of more established residents.
    Congrats, Karen, you’re Nossiter’s new Blakely-crush.

  3. Great story. And I recognize the why that the busted officials try and spin stuff. Now what I would like is for there to be fines. Federal fines and Karen to get the money for her time doing the job of the people who should have kept and eye on this. In fact I think that that should be the next step. If they aren’t going to do their jobs for the money they are paid then Karen should get it.

  4. Boy, could Adam Nossiter be more contemptuous of New Orleans (and/or public activism) if he worked at it?

    Oh, yes. A helluva lot more. He’s done it before, and will do it again. This was commendable, by his standards.
