FBI investigates 2 St. Landry school board members

The FBI says it is investigating two St. Landry Parish School Board members.

While FBI spokesman Kyle Hanrahan wouldn't provide details of the investigation, The Advocate reports the sheriff's office released a report Tuesday about an FBI agent looking into allegations that John Miller and Quincy Richard were allegedly trying to extort money in exchange for their votes for a new school superintendent.

The report was apparently written to officially detail why FBI agent Jeff Goins visited the parish.

According to the report, Goins told deputies he met with Miller and Richard about extorting money from Joseph Cassimere in exchange for their vote.

Hanrahan said that no arrests have been made related to the investigation.

The newspaper reports messages left for Miller and Richard were not returned.
