Are There Two Ronald Nabonnes?

I'm glad that somebody in the media is starting to ask questions about the money that our "headed-to-the-poorhouse broke" is spending on consultants' fees. But you can only learn so much from campaign contributions, you can also try looking up listings for the firms in question:
Attorneys:
Henry, Veronica E.
Nabonne, Ronald P.
Wilkerson, Walter J., Partner

I won't rehash Nabonne's career as a political consultant, but he's been involved in N.O. politics for years; most recently he managed Arnold Fielkow's campaign. No, that doesn't imply anything about Fielkow, I'm not even 100% sure that it's the same Nabonne.

One thing I will pint is that WWL's reporting on the subject has been done by Lee Zurik. Nothing against Zurik, but he's only recently made the switch from sports to news. A more experienced political reporter might have made the connection, but the experienced political reporters aren't asking serious questions where city government is concerned. They're leaving that to the rookies and amateurs.

Since I'm not real confident about any of the above, I might as well link to a blog that I'm unfamiliar with.
