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.

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.
