Vince and Elliot McNally head to the bayou to check out Loufficeatte, LA. Rand's 2nd all-time favorite town was once the short-lived sovereign country of Randada. Rand purchased the land from French con-woman Lucille Loufficeatte in a deal called the Lousiana Hornswaggle—it reverted back to US jurisdiction shortly thereafter. To this day, the town holds onto its sordid past as a welcome home for con artists and swindlers of all ilk. Chatting with the boys about all that and more is Lucille's great-great-granddaughter Blair Loufficeatte (Janelle Blasdel).
