Angry Jefferson Parish residents spoke out at a council meeting today urging Parish President Mike Yenni to resign. There are multiple allegations claiming while Yenni was the mayor of Kenner, he sent a 17-year-old boy sexually explicit texts and kissed the teen in a public bathroom then gave him designer underwear.
(update: Yenni said today he has been deployed with his miliary unit through October 15 to help with the Hurricane Matthew response on the east coast.)
