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:  

 

 

SEN. ELBERT GUILLORY WINS VOTER FRAUD CASE IN LOUISIANA

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, 

and 

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


Statements: 

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.

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.
