Lousiana Democratic Party also received audit request, not just LAGOP
Written by 

louisiana-legislative-auditor-sealpng-3bb79481afa7aad6 mediumWhile the Louisiana Republican Party appears to be claiming that they are being targeted by an Obama-scandal-like-IRS audit for expressing its opposition to taxes, the Louisiana Democratic Party has just announced, also via email, that the legislative auditor has also sent them a request for information.    



The response from the Louisiana democrats did not make similar claims or allegations.

Earlier today, the Louisiana Republican Party sent out an email  stating in part "The Republican State Central Committee of Louisiana recently received a letter from the Louisiana Legislative Auditor requesting records of our financial reports for the last three fiscal years. In the request, the Legislative Auditor cites an obscure three decade old law, which, to our knowledge, has never been enforced.

We are concerned about this inquiry given the Republican Party of Louisiana’s recent move to urge people across the state to contact their state representative and tell them to oppose the ultimately failed effort in the Legislature to raise taxes by $1.3 billion. 

In recent weeks, it has come to light that the Obama Administration and our federal government has engaged in shocking efforts to suffocate the 1st Amendment rights of conservative Americans. We have grave concerns that this action is an attempt out of the Obama Administration’s playbook to halt our ability to express free speech."





Hours after the GOP released its email linking the audit of them to "an attempt out of the Obama Administration’s playbook to halt our ability to express free speech.", the Louisiana Democratic Party issued this statement via email blast, "The Louisiana Democratic Party today released the following statement in response to a request from the Louisiana Legislative Auditor for financial information pursuant to Revised Statute Title 18 Section 464(F): 

“In the spirit of openness and transparency and in accordance with state law, the Louisiana Democratic Party has complied with the Legislative Auditor’s request for information,” said LDP Chair Karen Carter Peterson."

It is uncertain why the legislative auditor is seeking information from either or both parties.

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.
