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

Edwards
UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 7, 2011--THE POLL CLOSED...SEE THE RESULTS IN LOWER LEFT CORNER

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?

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
