NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The state inspector general has launched an investigation into state Sen. Wesley Bishop.
In addition to his duties as senator, Bishop has a full-time job at SUNO, a public university where he is a vice chancellor.
Our investigative series has shown that over the past two years Bishop used 122 sick days at SUNO to attend the legislative session. That’s against state law and SUNO policy.
The source tells us the inspector general will be looking into whether any laws were broken and also the SUNO administration’s involvement.
