Since the Congressman Vance McAllister kissing bomb went off last week, the nation's attention has been on Monroe, Louisiana and the fifth congressional district. While there is no question what happened - McAllister was caught on camera kissing Mrs. Peacock - there are many remaining questions with only few clues.
For instance, we do not yet know for certain who dunnit--used what appears to be a smart phone to video the security screen. Nor do we know the motivation for the camera shooting, nor details regarding the release of the video.
Although the Louisiana gubernatorial election is roughly eighteen months away, there is always plenty to discuss, especially when there is a recently-released poll to talk about.
Should Louisiana Congressman Vance McAllister resign?
Reportedly, the Louisiana GOP is discussing this issue as a result of the Congressman's being outed by a video showing his kissing a staffer.
Governor Bobby Jindal is making news today in Louisiana and throughout the nation, as he now does every day. For those Jindal watchers, the Louisiana governor, Presidential hopeful is headlining a GOP fundraiser, is taking victory laps for a federal court ruling in his favor over his education reform fight against the Obama administration.
Today, on WGSO Radio, Bayoubuzz publisher, Stephen Sabludowsky and talk-show host, Jeff Crouere discussed the Vance McAllister scandal that is shocking Louisiana political scene and which has been broadcasted throughout the local and national media. The radio broadcast was webcasted on Bayoubuzz.com via Google Hangout.
Lou Gehrig Burnett, publisher of the popular Fax-Net political newsletter, has clarified a posting re-published Tuesday on Bayoubuzz.com
Below is his clarification:
This fall, Louisiana voters will be looking at two elections, one for U.S. Senate and the other for Congressman for the 6th congressional District. Obviously, only those registered voters can decide the latter.
The Democratic National Committee National Press Secretary, Michael Czin, has released a statement concerning a healthcare plan presented to the nation by Presidential hopeful, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal:
Today, is the end of the signup period (except for those who tried to enroll but were unable to doso) and reportedly roughly 7 million people have signed up for Obamacare
On the strongly-conservative WGSO radio talk show, host Jeff Crouere and Stephen Sabludowsky discussed the Affordable Care Act, the pros and cons. The discussion got testy and included callers chiming in to express their oppositions to the healthcare law and implementation.

In a state, such as Louisiana, when so much of the revenues entering state and local coffers come from the Oil and Gas industries and wherre so many local jobs are dependent upon that industry, one would think that ex-Republican and Democratic governors would be supportive of stopping litigation against the members of that industry. Last year, a levee district filed a class-action lawsuit against that industry for damages inflicted upon the coast.
