I just wanted to mention that there are many more important things in this city that need to be addressed before a police chief gets his 15 minutes of fame


I actually think this should be used as a start of something. Expose BR politics for what they are, hell let White roll this into a run for Mayor.

You think BTR will elect a white man for Mayor-President?? Did you see how bad Mike Walker lost?

pretty sure that is what White could be gunning for. nothing exposed yet would prevent him from running.

Is Kip term limited?

Seriously? Mayor-President.

It isn't just 70805 voting...judging by some response White may have carried that anyway.

I edited it just for you



Honestly though, don't you think most people will have forgotten about this in 3 years or so when it is time to start the election process again? There isn't anyway he could realistically roll this into a campaign. Just my 2 cents.

It doesn't matter what kind of awesome liquor is being served. He wants his Budwieser.

I think it is a stretch to roll directly into a campaign, but I don't think this will be over within a week or two. Figure a year lead up to the election, he would have to span 24 months, 18 if this can drag on and reveal some sort of corruption in the mayors office.

It would hurt him to sue the city, but there are other ways to stay relevant while building a base. BR would elect a white mayor-prez, Kip lost to a white guy his first two go rounds. If Bernhard didn't buy him into office he may still be outside looking in.

I could testify that he brought his own and put it in the ice chest.

It would be interesting to say the least. And just to be straight, I have always liked Kip and do think he has done some good things for the city. However, I will say that I am unimpressed with the lack of transparency that his office provides. Some issues he has has in the past with the Metro Council come to mind. This is just another example of it. Only time will tell I guess what exactly happened and who is mostly at fault. I would imagine both sides play a part.

I actually saw him bring a 6 pack to a State Senate party years ago. They were serving Miller if my memory serves me correctly.

For those who haven't seen it yet, here is the WBRZ footage of the complete hearing. Its worth watching just to see the exchanges between all the parties involved.

I feel the same. I think he points the parish in the right direction in a few key areas. Crime is the most glaring issue at this point and honestly I have never seen him do jack to really address it. He has large dreams, which is cool, but doesn't take practical thought into consideration.

After seeing this run in, and then how he handles the metro-council, I think the common denominator is him. Holden seems impossible to work with if your views conflict with his in any way.

Mike Walker didn't lose because he was white.

Connect the dots. The misdirection and rhetoric has even the best of you fooled.
this - the family that owns a newspaper and tv station in Baton Rouge has a huge dislike for the current mayor - the other two tv stations are so excited that people are actually watching their live news at 5 - good for ratings.
