Louisiana’s Governor’s Race: Edwards Vs. Jindal, Pardon Me?
Written by 


The final tally:

Former Governor, Edwin W. Edwards 1766 votes

Current  Govenor Bobby Jindal 723 votes

Someone else or won't vote 123

According to WWL radio, there is a movement towards trying to get President Obama to pardon Edwin Edwards so he can run for Governor.

Currently, there is no Democrat running against Governor Bobby Jindal, although there have been rumors of various individuals contemplating the possibility.

WWL’s website says in part: An effort is underway to get a presidential pardon for Edwin Edwards. It's happening on-line as the first step of the process aiming to allow the federal felon to run for governor again.

"I really feel that if I did run, I would be able to get elected," Edwards proclaimed. Edwards was asked, "If you had to opportunity would you do it?" "Yes!" was his emphatic reply.

So, would it be a good idea for major Democrat officials or members of that political party to attempt to obtain a pardon for Edwards? If he were pardoned, would you vote for him against Governor Jindal?

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
