re: AG Jeff Landry vs. The Advocate
Landry himself hasn’t slapped anyone down

He probably has less litigation experience than me at this point

Exactly. Meanwhile the leftists at the Advocate lie and pretend to be fair.
They also say they are non-biased. Which is true. They are not biased, they have an agenda which is different from bias. With the Landry story, their agenda is to get Landry. They are now looking for proof to fit their story.
More examples of the Advocate's agenda:
Get Edwards re-elected.
Disrupt St. George.
Punish industry.
Demonize law enforcement.
ETA: Equate Gayle Benson to a child molester.

Rumblings here in Lafayette that this idiot we just elected mayor has his eyes set on being governor sooner rather than later. Next election may be too soon, but he’s never shown an aversion to running in any and all elections.

People can say what they want about Landry but he has stood almost alone against JBE and his Gumbo Pac friends on some of the lawsuits they want the state to bring that will make them even richer.

Not disagreeing with you. Just a sad state of affairs for the LAGOP. They entire in-state party leadership is atrocious

For example: in the midst of nationwide consevative uptick, especially in red states, the LAGOP is so bad that JBE was elected twice comfortably.

He would lose badly just as all the other bad LAGOP candidates have done

In fairness, the blame can equally be shared by the party and our incredibly unintelligent population

Seems plausible. I wish Dr. John Fleming of Minden would run.

He barely lost to Kennedy. He likely would have won if some a-hole named Rob Maness from Jefferson / St. Tammany hadn’t syphoned off 3-4% of the conservative vote that otherwise would’ve gone to Fleming given he had a strong record as a conservative in Congress, whereas Kennedy was a Dem until he needed to switch parties to win elections.

Maness (who himself has rumored ties to the Landrieu family) knew he had no chance to win or even make the runoff. Tons of people including myself urged him to get out before the primary, and he refused and called US the traitors.

Maness later (after losing in two US Senate primaries) ran for LA House in District 77 against a St. Tammany RPEC member named Mark Wright (Mark had paid his dues and volunteered on a number of other campaigns of the most conservative candidates in a given race). Rob was also on the RPEC, but he was known for being abrasive toward other members and was generally disliked.

Anyway, Rob and Mark made the District 88 runoff a few years ago. Rob finished the primary with 12% more votes than Mark. A few conservative campaign vigilantes decided Rob needed to be humbled after the stunt he had pulled the previous Senate race, and they canvassed nearly every home in the district, passed out literature and put up signs in their free time for the entire month before the runoff.

On Election Day, Rob saw his 12 point cushion turn into an 18 point blowout loss, effectively ending his political career and enacting retribution for costing Fleming the Senate seat.

That’s pretty incredible when you think about it. In 30 days, there was a 30-point swing in voting. 1% per day between primary and runoff.

Rob’s arrogant arse has been laying low ever since. He supposedly left (or was kicked out) of the party.

Anyway, Fleming would be an excellent choice for Governor if he has any desire to run again. With a little more outreach in SELA, he’d beat any Dem by 10-20 points head-to-head.

I’d prefer him to Landry, but would be okay with Landry too if the alternative is a D or a Jay Dardenne type.

I’m just glad we won’t have to deal with that Landrieu-connected, two-faced dick syphoning off votes from the best candidate as he did in two prior Senate races (there was one before the one in which Fleming ran). After that arse kicking he took against Mark Wright, I’d be shocked if he ran again in Louisiana.

ETA: Kennedy has turned out okay, but there were some legitimate questions about his beliefs and philosophy going into that race. He won due to name recognition, not his record.

Here's the link to the article:

Jeff Landry-owned firm imported workers with the help of a felon who broke immigration laws

I'm sure the Landry's will continue to claim it's a smear (always the go to when the facts are not on your side). Regardless of whether it was knowing, it was certainly negligent.

Not after today and this story. No matter if the advocate embellished some of it, it looks really bad

Graves or Kennedy is going to be next gov. Wouldn't surprise me if Nungesser ran as the "moderate republican" to try get the Dem vote. The Dems are probably just going to put up some no name minority

It doesn’t seem that Landry broke any laws, but the entire deal was shady and you can understand why Landry wanted to keep his interests in the deal out of the spotlight.

Do La. elected officials have to list their private interests when they take office? This is really alarming.

Advocate headline:

quote:

Jeff Landry-owned firm imported workers with the help of a felon who broke immigration laws


5th paragraph:

quote:

There’s no evidence that either Landry brother or their associates knew that Pesquera was under criminal investigation when they contracted with him, and neither of the Landry brothers nor their associates have been charged in the case.


This is shameful.

6th paragraph:

quote:

Before beginning a three-year federal prison sentence in December, Pesquera shared hundreds of pages of visa applications, internal email exchanges and other records with The Times-Picayune and The Advocate.


Someone check how many newspaper subscriptions this guy bought.

quote:

Pesquera shared the documents, and his account of the arrangement, with reporters in hopes that federal authorities in Louisiana will make a case against Jeff Landry — and reduce Pesquera's prison term as a reward.


The Advocate is all too happy to be a stooge.

But this is a warning. If you own businesses and go into public office and start throwing rocks, you better make sure your stuff is squeaky clean. I think in this case Landry was defrauded, but the stink is still gonna hit him, unfortunetly.

If he knew that they were creating shell companies in order to get a better chance at work visas and then moving those visas around to different companies then he absolutely broke the law.

Not saying he definitely knew about it because the convicted felon involved in this absolutely has credibility issues.

But it sure stinks

Different requirements apply to different positions, but generally if you have an ownership position in an entity that does any kind government contracting work, yes.

This even applies to a lot of appointed, non-paid, public officials, such as people on neighborhood security district boards.

Although the government is too involved in our lives, there are legitimate reasons for ethical and financial disclosure requirements.
