DENHAM SPRINGS, LA (WAFB) -
The man at the center of an investigation
launched by District Attorney Scott Perrilloux says he has nothing to hide.
Corey Delahoussaye, the man accused of padding time sheets on a parish
contract, says he was an FBI informant and has turned over countless tips
to the federal government in the Livingston Parish debris removal battle.
I-Team obtained a videotape of Corey Delahoussaye appearing in a civil
deposition on Monday, November 14th. The nearly six-hour deposition
occurred just six days after Delahoussaye sat down with the I-Team to defend
allegations he billed Livingston Parish for hours he never worked. In the
videotaped deposition, he was far less revealing while under oath.
Delahoussaye says Livingston Parish paid his company
almost $2 million in just under two years for work on a Hurricane Gustav debris
removal contract. He appeared in the civil deposition
as one of several witnesses in a $52 million lawsuit involving Livingston
Parish and International Equipment Distributors (IED), a company responsible
for debris cleanup following Hurricane Gustav. The company filed suit, claiming
they never got paid.
Delahoussaye enters the equation
because his company, C-Del Inc., served as a liaison between the local and
federal government for the cleanup. He was hired by the parish in 2009.
Delahoussaye told the I-Team that he tipped off federal officials that
certain companies had committed fraud related to the hurricane debris removal
project. He claims the FBI relieved him of his informant duties
within the last few weeks. The I-Team called the FBI to check it out, but
they would not confirm or deny his claim.
