Posted on 08/02/2010 5:29:15 AM PDT by abb
Peggy M. Traylor, the late wife of former Louisiana Supreme Court Associate Justice Chet Traylor had professional wagers income of over $100 thousand for the reporting years of 2008 and 2009, according to documents obtained by Lincoln Parish News Online (LPNO). Chet Traylor retired from the court May 31, 2009.
The documents do not reveal under what circumstances or from whom the income was received, as appears to be required by the states ethics laws.
