Louisiana Sex, Politics And Scandal That Didn't
Written by 

nungessser-dardenne-debateJeremy Alford of The Political Desk, a relatively-new very interesting online publication focusing upon Louisiana political news and “buzz” has written and published a whopper of a story, related to the Jay Dardenne-Billy Nungesser Lt. Governor’s race and a controversy that Bayoubuzz originally broke and featured.

At issue was the claim by Plaquemines Parish President and then-Lt. Governor candidate Nungesser’s campaign that years ago, a young Dardenne had engaged in somewhat “sleezy” behavior with a former girlfriend and client.

At the time, Bayoubuzz questioned why Nungesser, whose own personal sexual behavior had been questioned by the Times Picayune’s James Gill and the Canal Street Madam, Jeanette Maier, would be sending out an email hitting Dardenne where it would apparently hurt, if the charges were true and if the story made the usual media hop.

To some extent, fortunately for Dardenne, the mainstream media failed to pick up the story, he coasted to a win over fellow Republican Nungesser, and the now-Lt. Governor Dardenne could go on in political life looking onward to a 2016 Governor’s run, post “Era of Jindal”.

Yet, the story actually has some long legs, of which The Political Desk obviously looked up.

As reported by the publication, there was some “alleged” extortion of Dardenne along with a rapid-response in form of a potentially-highly explosive press conference that was ultimately aborted, since it was apparently not necessary at the time.   Dardenne was clearly ahead of Nungesser in the polls.

Will the Political Desk’s “Sex, Lives and Politics” piece be the last word on this “Made in Louisiana” story that didn’t but "coulda" rocked the Louisiana political world and perhaps aroused some prurient interests? 

We shall see.
