Louisiana News & politics focus on Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards and Louisiana legislature

CHAVISThe Louisiana Republican and Democratic Parties and their respective partners have been somewhat quiet lately, however, that appears to be a temporary moment of the past.  Now, with the Louisiana legislative session quickly approaching, the US Congress debating one another and President Donald Trump, there has been an uptick in the activities.

eye stormThis past week, Louisiana has been involved in an insipid debate relating to hurricane recovery and political grandstanding. Unfortunately, we all have been a loser in this exchange.

There is an upcoming dispute that is many times more serious.  This future deliberation will have serious impact upon tens of thousands of Louisiana citizens--much more than last week's pitiful PR contest on display on TV and social media.  At that time, we discussed which presidential candidate did what and whether our president could see beyond the 18th-hole.

As predicted, LSU frees Bill Cassidy

landrieu-cassidyby Lamar White Jr., Publisher of Cenlamar

Last week, a prominent national reporter spoke with me about a paper I’m working on for one of my law school classes. I’d asked for his help because I knew he was an expert in the subject, and thankfully, he took the time to answer my questions. At the tail end of our conversation, he asked me about the story I’d helped to break about Bill Cassidy’s work with LSU. He was curious, he said, because he’d actually seen the same documents that I posted a few weeks before I had. He thought it was an important story, but he couldn’t find anyone interested in publishing it, which, he said, was frustrating.

landrieu-cassidyIs the Bill Cassidy LSU double-billing controversy jigged or rigged?

 

Is the "jigged-up" Bill Cassidy LSU double-pay controversy over, dead and gone, as at least one conservative commentator claims?  Or, has a just-released LSU audit of the "scandal" that arose during the last moments of the very hotly contested election  between former US  Senator Mary Landrieu and then US Rreepsentative Cassidy, been rigged due to powerful influences?   Apparently, according to the public sentiments of the two bloggers who broke the story, Lamar White Jr. and Jason Berry, the audit is worthless.

Mary Landrieu forgot politics is local

tip-oneilby Jim Brown

Former U.S. House speaker Tip O’Neill said it time and time again.  All politics is local. I interviewed Tip on a New Orleans television show I hosted back in the 1990s.  He went on for sometime that you have to be intimately involved in your home state, if you want to survive.  It’s a lesson that Senator Mary Landrieu forgot.

retirement If the polls are right, Louisiana voters are on the verge of throwing long time politician U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) a retirement party on December 6.  Her opponent Congressman Bill Cassidy (R-Baton Rouge) is comfortably ahead as the run-off draws to a close and has been continually blasting the incumbent as a clone of the unpopular President Barack Obama.
