New Orleans City Councilwoman Stacy Head began Monday to make good on her promise to post on her Web site tens of thousands of messages sent on her city e-mail account since she took office in 2006.
Fourteen large files containing scanned versions of hundreds of messages were posted Monday afternoon on the site, Web site.
Head had said Saturday she would post all her messages in an effort to end what she called "political games" surrounding last week's leaks of a small number of the messages that had been obtained by local lawyer Tracie Washington, a longtime Head antagonist.
Some of those messages, chosen to cause Head political embarrassment, were posted briefly on the Web site of Washington's organization, the Louisiana Justice Institute. Others were contained in batches of e-mail files sent to local TV stations.
