In two one-hour documentaries about problems in Louisiana’s state bureaucracies, John Camp demonstrates a consistently high level of investigative reporting. "Deep Pockets" uses case studies of accidental victims who collected huge damage claims because attorneys for the state failed to challenge the claims in court. The result cost millions of dollars in taxpayers’ money. In "I'll Drink to That," Camp dissected the practices of Louisiana’s Office of Alcohol Beverage Control and documented mismanagement, bribery and patronage. The station used undercover cameras to disclose that state agents had joined a drinking club, and were spending evenings cruising bars instead of enforcing the law.
