New Orleans mayor’s race from sleeper to Bagneris-Landrieu shocker
Written by 

landrieu-press-superbowl-webcastNo doubt, the announcements that Judge decided to quit his position on the Orleans Parish Civil District Courts and jump into the New Orleans elections against a popular Mayor from a famous and powerful political background, is a shocker.

 Judge Michael Bagneris, a familiar face in the legal and political circles, having worked for Mayor Dutch Morial in the past, has less than two months to raise money, get schooled on the issues, generate a team of supporters and not just opponents of the current mayor Mitch Landrieu.

Jeff Crouere, talk show host of WGSO and Bayoubuzz.com columnist and this publication’s publisher, Stephen Sabludowsky, talked about the sudden appearance of Bagneris on the New Orleans mayoral front.

Among topics discussed were:

Who is Judge Michael Bagneris

Why is he running?

Can he win?

How much will the Morial family be supporting Bagneris or will their close ties to the Landrieu’s make it difficult for the Morials to fully embrace a close family ally, Bagneris?

Crouere talks Landrieu's, Clarkson, Foti:, Bagneris, Gusman, et. al. humdingers

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.
