PL Blake and Tom Anderson: Why?

One would like to know what the connection between PL Blake and Tom Anderson was all about. PL Blake seemed to be with his wife (Shirley F. Blake) firmly placed int Greenwood, MS. From there they operated PLB Grain Storage for a time and Dewitt Corporation. Their son Mark Blake who seems to have had a business called Mark Blake & Associates. From Greenwood PL Blake and Shirley F. Blake made political contributions. See, e.g. this.

Tom Anderson had been in Washington, D.C. working for Trent Lott. Senator Lott had been a very powerful senator. Anderson was there when Lott had his power.

Now the two, according to the Scruggs testimony in Luckey v. Scruggs are tied together in something called Developing Markets Group.

Obviously, Blake and Anderson came together at least for a time. Blake to do what needed to be done in Mississippi and the surrounding area? Anderson to do what needed to be done in Washington, D.C.?

And, now one must wonder why PL Blake and Steve Patterson are getting tobacco money payments when there is no word that Tom Anderson is getting any.

This is an interesting puzzle. And that is really what is of interest. How the puzzle goes together. The news that PL Blake is hiring lawyers is part of the puzzle.

The connection between P L Blake and Tom Anderson goes back at least three decades. While Anderson was a top aide to then Cong Trent Lott, he was in constant contact with Blake. It is rumored that Blake flew fresh catfish to Anderson every Friday via Blake's multi-million dollar airplane. Blake was the receipant of multi-million dollars in FmHA loans most of which were never repaid. Anderson was a key component to Blake receiving approval for those loans. Also Blake obtained a multi-million dollar USDA contract for grain storage in West Texas with the assistance of Anderson. In 1987 Blake was convicted of defrauding USDA in regard to the grain storage and took bankruptcy, again leaving USDA holding the bag for millions. The fact that Anderson is now associated thru DMG and the tobacco funds is not surprising, just very, very interesting. Would expect to learn more if PLB is indicted this month as is rumored.
