NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - For the second time in a year, The State Ethics Board has slapped a Plaquemines Parish councilman with ethics charges.
The board says Edgecombe's construction company earned money for doing work on a parish-owned marina.
The ethics board says, since Edgecombe served as a councilman while he profited off work done on parish property, he violated the law.
The ethics charges handed down last year were similar, also for money Edgecombe Construction made off parish property. In that case, Edgecombe Construction was paid $197,100 by Deep Delta Houseboats, another company that leased Venice Marina.
Parish resident Barry Colligan told FOX 8 early this year that he took photos from December 2014, showing that Colligan continued to do that work - even after the Ethics Board charged him the previous November.
Edgecombe could face a significant fine.
