Sen. Guillory claims victory in Turkey Creek Louisiana voter fraud case
Written by 

guillory Senator Elbert Guillory, who has claimed that voter fraud is rampant in Louisiana to the extent that he believes one-tenth of the recent votes in the last election involving Mary Landrieu was a result of voter fraud is taking credit for a court victory, on voter's fraud.  Here is a press release Bayoubuzz received today:  




Civil Rights activist, lawyer, and statesman works with winning legal team to get new election called in Turkey Creek, Louisiana 

(Opelousas, Louisiana) It had all the elements of dramatic confrontation: A young, idealistic anti-corruption Republican warriors; an old boy, Democrat clique angered that they couldn’t short-change the taxpayers by short cutting government rules; a tough, attractive lawyer whose withering cross examination exposed the vote buying scheme; and a crusading anti-corruption lawyer-statesman. 

The Mayor, Heather Cloud (R-Turkey Creek, La.), discovered that vote buying had improperly influenced the election which she lost by 4 votes. She filed a lawsuit, represented by attorneys Anne Watson and State Senator Elbert Guillory (R-Opelousas, La.). 

The following is court proceedings timeline: 

The District Court in Ville Platte found that, because of the law’s interpretation in a 1997 case, Mayor Cloud had no viable lawsuit (“cause of action”). It was appealed.
The Third Circuit Court of Appeals, Lake Charles, overturned the District Court decision and ordered that a trial proceed in Ville Platte.
After a 2-day trial, the District Court found that, indeed, vote buying had existed, in an amount sufficient to, at least make the election a tie, but because of that 1997 case, there was no legal remedy. That decision was appealed.
Today, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals decided: 

As a result of the proceedings, two outcomes exist: 

It is probable that one or more of the men who operated the vote buying scheme will face criminal charges, 


Today the Appeals Court decided in a unanimous panel decision to throw out the 4 illegal votes and call a new election.


Mayor Cloud: “I am elated. I feel vindicated. The people of Turkey Creek will receive justice in the form of a new election.
Attorney Watson: “This was a hard fought battle. We worked hard and prepared well. I’m proud to be part of this victory.”
Senator Guillory: “Vote buying is a blot on the Soul of Louisiana. It attacks the very foundation of American freedom. Today we have taken a giant step toward eliminating this corrupt, old boy, political practice in Louisiana.” 

It was revealed in a video released on Monday at a Baton Rouge press conference that the Democratic Mayor of Opelousas, Don Cravins, Sr., asked a crowd of people on November 3rd, to vote multiple times in the same election. 

Today, we invite both political parties and every election official to condemn to repudiate Louisiana voter fraud.

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.
