Mary Landrieu campaign slams Hollis, Cassidy after residency court win
Written by 

paul-hollisUS Senate Mary Landrieu's Campaign took the opportunity to slam former Republican contender for US Senate, Congressman Bill Cassidy and their "allies" after the Louisiana District Court, threw out the controversial residency suit lodged against her.

 In doing so, she also reminded the public that Republican Congressman Cassidy has not agreed to debate Landrieu for the seat.

Here is an email from the campaign:

AS JUDGE DISMISSES RESIDENCY CASE,
LOUISIANA MEDIA HIGHLIGHT RIDICULOUS
CLAIM BY CASSIDY, MANESS, AND LAGOP

 Judge Orders Hollis To Pay All Court Fees

Statement attributable to Landrieu campaign Communications Director Fabien Levy following the dismissal of the residency suit against Senator Landrieu:
 
“Today’s decision by the judge to throw out this frivolous lawsuit highlights just how desperate Congressman Cassidy and his allies have become in an attempt to win this Senate seat. The judge was clear – Senator Landrieu resides in Louisiana and is qualified to run for the Senate, as she has three times in the past. For the sake of Louisiana voters, it’s time we end this sideshow and focus on the issues important in this race. Congressman Cassidy can begin by showing some courage and agreeing to debate Senator Landrieu and answering questions of real substance for Louisiana voters.” 

Judge Wilson Fields said the challenge could be filed after the election, set for Nov. 4.  Landrieu says she lives with her parents in New Orleans when in Louisiana, and is registered to vote in Louisiana.

Debating Mary Landrieu's house: A Louisiana US Senate campaign issue?

Hollis claimed Landrieu is a "full-time, permanent inhabitant" of Washington, D.C.  

The controversy made national news last week.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
