In 1999, I launched a career on radio and television, and started writing regular political columns. A frequent guest on my programs was Steve Sabludowsky, attorney and founder of Bayoubuzz.com.

You don't mess around with the Clinton's.
Which just might be what some might be thinking as Donna Brazile discusses her new and quite controversial book about the disruptive 2016 Presidential election in which Donald Trump beat all odds and the Democratic institution led by none other than Hillary and Team Clinton.
What was the impact of the Russians hacking the Democrats?
What is the real issue related to the Russian involvement in American elections of 2016? Who killed Seth Rich and why? Was the Democratic nomination process rigged?
What will Sidney do? Can Desiree Charbonnet get more of the white vote than she did during the general election? What about Michael Bagneris who did have a following in the white community while his support in the African American community was very low comparatively speaking?
The New Orleans Mayor’s race was boring. The main excitement was the sideshow between businessman Sidney Torres and Desiree Charbonnet. Torres wasn’t even a candidate. Since LaToya has a strong lead in the runoffs that will occur November 18, her opponent needs to go negative and she will do so.
