JEFFERSON PARISH PRESIDENT AARON BROUSSARD, MEET THE PRESS-
The guy who runs this building I'm in, emergency management, he's responsible for everything. His mother was trapped in St. Bernard nursing home and every day she called him and said, "Are you coming, son? Is somebody coming?" And he said, "Yeah, Mama, somebody's coming to get you. Somebody's coming to get you on Tuesday. Somebody's coming to get you on Wednesday. Somebody's coming to get you on Thursday. Somebody's coming to get you on Friday." And she drowned Friday night. She drowned Friday night.
[Breaks into tears] You have to watch. Words fail me, except words of anger. And thoughts of revenge for the people who have murdered thousands of Louisianan's by their callous disregard for their fellow citizens.
