re: How the Landrieu family gets rich in politics--well at least one example


Yes, it is no big deal that Mary's husband can earn over $100,000 in commissions for acting as the agent in the sale of a lobbyists home. That $100,000 doesn't go into Mary's campaign funds, it goes into her family's personal account. That is nothing to get worked up about compared to the indecency displayed by Miley Cyrus.

Just take a look at the employers of all of the spouses of our elected officials and their W-2 forms for each year and you make the call.

You ever send business to a customer of supplier of yours?

As long as they are not getting more favorable terms than any other realtor would get, what is the problem?

Again, is Frank Snelling not allowed to make a living?


You cannot be this stupid.

Off the track a bit but I've always heard, from friends in N.O. that her marriage to Snelling was one of those "to make her look normal" weddings.Note him being a successful lawyer in Monroe while she's up in D.C. All the time.

So Frank Snellings can't do any business that is otherwise legal with anyone who may have an interest before Mary?

Tell me where I'm wrong.

Theoretically, we all have interests before Mary.

Is Frank Snellings precluded from selling any of our homes?

How so?

Please break it down for me. Where is the quid pro quo?

Is Snellings taking a higher commission than another realtor would?

Why not eliminate the pretense and let Mary be paid directly?

Contact your local congressman and place your house for sale with his/her realtor spouse.

Apparently you'll peddle enough influence to rescind the bribery statute(s) with ease.

Next thing boosie will remind us is that BellSouth hired the son of the communications committee chairman at the time, Billy Tauzin, because he was the best candidate for the job.

Oh and John Breaux Jr and Chett Lott were the best lobbyist at the time too.

Would Snelling get the lsiting if he wasn't married to Mary?

I'm not sure how much of a story this is.


quote:

After practicing law in Monroe, Louisiana for 19 years while serving as an elected parish official for 12, our family moved to DC in 1997 upon my wife Mary Landrieu's election to the U.S. Senate. We purchased a vacant lot on Capitol Hill and built a home on E Capitol Street, four blocks from the Capitol. The real estate market was quite weak at the time but I believed it would improve and it has. I became the contractor shortly after construction of the house began and completed it in the Summer of 2002. What a learning experience dealing with subs, suppliers carpenters and permitting officials!

After Mary's re-election in 2002, in which I was active, I decided to pursue a new direction as a real estate agent. Real estate law was the part of my legal practice I had enjoyed the most so it made perfect sense. The more flexible schedule allows me the to help Mary keep up with our teenage son Connor and our younger daughter Mary Shannon. It has been a wonderful and satisfying experience. My primary areas of concentration are Capitol Hill, the Penn Quarter, Georgetown and upper northwest DC. I hold DC and Virginia licenses. It would be my pleasure to assist you with your residential real estate needs in DC and northern Virginia. I look forward to working with you!

Convenient to be a Senator's spouse when a real estate agent in DC.

Let's see if I am a lobbyist do I choose a Senator's spouse to sell my high priced home? Do I write a special seller contract with especially high commissions? Nah I just hire one of the thousands of other agents in the city.

Tom Daschle's wife was making a shitload of money as a lobbyist when he was in the Senate.
