DEA Agent in New Orleans Retiring Following Newspaper Report on Potential Conflict of Interest

Jimmy S. Fox,  the special agent in charge of the DEA’S office in New Orleans,  is retiring after a newspaper report exposed a potential conflict of interest, the Times-Picayune reports.

The newspaper wrote that Fox was bidding to oversee a consent decree between the Justice Department and the city of New Orleans.

Fox was part of a joint venture to bid on the oversight, which is a potential conflict of “revolving door” laws that govern side employment of federal authorities.

Fox also can’t lobby the DEA as part of the oversight process, the Times-Picayune reported.

Jeff Schlanger, president and CEO of KeyPoint, which is pursuing the bid, said Fox may not do the job.

“He’s deciding right now whether he wants to pursue the opportunity,” Schlanger told the Times-Picayune. “As of today, he’s still on the team. But he’s indicated he’s thinking of withdrawing.” Schlanger said Fox may pursue “another opportunity.”
