Trent Lott Is Crying Like A Baby

It seems he doesn't like to be treated the same as those, uh ordinary folks.
A lawyer for U.S. Sen. Trent Lott (news, bio, voting record) said Monday that State Farm Insurance Co. is destroying documents that could show the insurer has fraudulently denied thousands of claims by Lott and other policyholders whose homes were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.

Zach Scruggs, one of Lott's attorneys, says his client has a "good faith belief" that several State Farm employees in Biloxi are destroying engineering reports that gave conflicting conclusions about whether wind or water was responsible for storm damage.


In an interview Monday, Scruggs said corporate "whistleblowers" who are cooperating with Lott's attorneys have provided evidence that State Farm employees are destroying or moving those "initial favorable" engineering reports.

"We believe that this is a systematic practice," said Scruggs, who is Lott's nephew by marriage.

BTW, I'm sure you caught that last sentence. Gawd the inbreeding of these people...

To be fair about this, if its true, State Farm should be hammered. They should be hammered for all the "little" people too. You know them, the ones who can't afford to replace their homes without the insurance money. I've never dealt with State Farm in any way and have no opinion on their tactics nor their ethics.
