Bad hair day for David Vitter--Gambit story, auto accident and arrest
Written by 

vitter-trickIt’s been a bad two hair days for Senator David Vitter, who of course, is running for Louisiana Governor for tomorrow's election.   

Some are saying he is the victim of last-minute campaign tricks and perhaps he has been.

But, if so, maybe the ones perpetrating all of these dirty tricks are not just those on the other side of the vs. Vitter.

 

Yesterday, the Gambit broke a story that began to  confirm some of the possible truths of the New Orleans prostitute story told by video on Jason B. Berry's The American Zombie website.  That is the recycled story, rejected by everybody under the sun, who Vitter supporters have said it is "trash, lies and video tapes".

The Gambit said a barber, whose shop was across the street from the “House where Wendy lived”, told the paper that Vitter visited the shop on three occasions.  The barber shop and The Wendy House are in the French Quarter on the corner of Dauphine and Dumaine.  The barber said Vitter had his hair cut at the shop as he waited for the lady across the street.   

Who knows.  Shoot the barber.  The Gambit is just the messenger.

Then, today, David Vitter gets into an automobile accident, as a passenger.  He was a witness to the accident but he apparently left the scene, something, I suppose most of us wouldn’t do.  Then, we’re not a US Senator or running for Governor, either.

Apparently, the media is claiming that the lady driving the car Vitter was in was his fundraiser.  I inquired into this and was further told  by an insider opposed to Vitter, that the driver works as a fundraiser for both the Fund For Louisiana’s Future and the Vitter campaign and that, believe it or not,  the rules allow this.  Wow.  If so, and if this and other campaigns allow one person to control the flow of funds, then, forget campaign financing laws.  The separation between the Super Pac and campaigns would be a myth.  

Then, tonight, Sheriff Newell Norman revealed that a man was arrested, who, according to Cenlamar, was a private detective under the employ of a firm allegedly under contract for the Vitter campaign.   For what?  For allegedly secretely recording, of all people, Sheriff Newell Normand. 

You might remember, last month, I complained about Team Vitter secretively recording people’s conversations and I said, I thought that was unlawful.  In writing the article, I was attempting to warn all local campaigns, if they are doing this, stop it.  After all, the nation will be looking to Louisiana’s elections to see what works and what does not, in the new age of secret recording devices, Super Pac’s and uploading of videos.

If Cenlamar’s and TheAdvocate's article is correct, then, maybe somebody should have listened.

For the record, I personally just found out about this arrest and had zero to do with it.  Was a shocked as anybody to find that somebody would be stupid enough to secretively record the state’s most popular sheriff.

I know many close and committed to Senator Vitter are going to claim all of this is a left-wing conspiracy, engaging in dirty tricks.

But, if recording unsuspecting individuals, without knowledge, is not a dirty trick, or, if, putting up bogus videos is not a dirty trick (something the Vitter campaign did just last week), then, who knows.

Maybe I’ll find one in the French Quarter.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
