As Louisiana Democrats find themselves sliding into political oblivion, they find on offer two strategies to become meaningful again at the statewide level: adapt to the median voter’s issue preference, or to rely on subterfuge. Early indications are their hardheaded leaders will rely on the latter.
The last race in the country for the U.S. Senate is over. On Saturday, Louisiana voters elected Congressman Bill Cassidy to serve as their next U.S. Senator. It is unusual for an incumbent senator to be defeated for re-election in Louisiana but this election was unusual from the beginning.
The American Revolution is almost over. The lady lion has all but been slain.
Louisiana will remain one of the most conservative, if not the most conservative state, in the nation.
Let us give Louisiana Senator Elbert Guillory credit.
According to a press release, he was instrumental in overturning an election in Turkey Creek Louisiana due to voter fraud. No doubt, we should thank him and others who believe it is necessary to remove the cancer any fraudulent, coercive or unfair behavior from our elective process.
Do you know anyone who does not have an opinion of just what happened in Ferguson, Missouri? The problem is that in trying to make some sense out of what has become a tragedy for everyone involved, misinformation has been spewed out from all sides. Former New York Senator Daniel Moynihan summed up the incongruities well in saying that: “You are entitled to your own opinion but you’re not entitled to your own facts.”
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:
The Louisiana Democratic Party has released a press release regarding the latest developments in the growing controversy over Congressman Bill Cassidy’s alleged work for LSUHSC, while he was a US Congressman.
So Sen. David Vitter flopped/evolved on the issue of the Common Core State Standards, pursuant to his quest for the governorship of Louisiana next year. It should have come as no surprise, given what strategy has taken him to his present lofty political heights, but it likely won’t make much policy difference even should he win.
