re: AG Jeff Landry vs. The Advocate
I won’t accept cookies towatch the videos,
so I don’t know what The Landry story is about. I do think Landry is a pathetic tool,
so I assume it’s not flattering. The Hayride has become even more of a joke lately, unfortunately.

Well said, something like this questions Landry’s judgment.

I think there should be full disclosure and an elected official should disclose his or her involvement with any private entity while they are in office.

Let's say they might have gotten into the labor/staffing business after Katrina to churn employees and get the employment tax credits (40% on first $6,000 wages) As a staffing company, rinse repeat, profit? That "business model" ended. This was the new "business model", maybe.

I'm a super conservative but sometimes you gotta call a spade a spade.

What is the advocate supposed to do, say we aren't interested in this. Whether you agree with the way the story was written you can't deny that this is a news story worthy of coverage.

That’s actually a pretty solid degree of disclosure regarding exculpatory info on Landry’s part and the motivations of the felon.

The advocate publishes typographical diarrhea from the likes of intellectually dishonest cucks like Robert Mann. They have no more credibility than the Hayride.

Starting with the Public Service Commissioner and Insurance Commissioner, both of whose campaigns (and those of every candidate every election for the position) are funded nearly entirely by the entities which they regulate.

I’m all for expanding it to every other elected official. But top priority should be either banning campaign contributions for regulatory positions by the entities regulated by said positions or at the very least providing voters with full disclosure of their conflicts of interest.

re: AG Jeff Landry vs. The Advocate
Not a huge Landry fan but The Advocate's coverage of this is minimal at best as people do not trust a newspaper whose owner has run for Governor. The Advocate regardless of the story they cover is not impactful the way it was 20 years ago.

Voters have no one to blame but themselves when he was first elected.

Speaking of, I remember when the Hayride was the only media to publish video footage captured at a 2010 campaign rally for then Congressman Charlie Melancon (D, District 3) of Melancon admitting that everything negative Vitter’s campaign was saying about him was true.

Seems like a newsworthy discovery for every other local media outlet, yet somehow McKay was the only one to publish it.

Charlie Melancon admits Vitter has him dead-to-rights (2010 US Senate race)

I can’t possibly understand why no other Louisiana newspaper, TV station, radio station or even blog bothered to cover this.

I mean, one of the two candidates in the runoff literally admits his opponent is gaining ground with ads that are entirely truthful and accurate. He actually says, “what they’re saying is true, he busted us”, in reference to Vitter’s ad campaign in the weeks leading to that particular event.

People blaming the LA GOP for conservative problems at the Gubernatorial level have no idea what they're talking about.

Republicans in Louisiana have never had the unprecedented success they have now. They have a supermajority in the state senate, two seats shy of that in the state house of reps, a majority on the state Supreme Court, control 5 out of 6 US House seats, control both Senate seats, control every statewide office outside of the Governor.

The LA GOP is not responsible for Vitter and Rispone running shitty campaigns that were completely tone deaf and did everything they could to earn the loss themselves. Vitter and Rispone are responsible for their losses.

One big example of this is Rispone's campaign turning down a free GOTV data model the LA GOP they built last year and offered it free of charge to every republican on the ballot in Louisiana which saw great success. Rispone campaign instead spent well over 100K on a three year old GOTV data model from the Trump campaign.

That's a bad campaign all around.

Don't confuse your angst over terrible candidates for Governor with a bunch of party hacks having the power you think they have and don't use well enough when in reality they don't have that power.

What? Run for LAGOP Parish Executive or State Central Committee. It’s not very difficult at all on the Parish level, and really not that difficult at the state level either.

I don’t know Louis Gurvich, but Roger Villere was very competent and easily accessible. If you think you can make it better then run for RPEC or LAGOP SCC

In fairness to Vitter, he did his best reassemble his 2010 campaign staff, but too many of the “difference makers” had gotten older and had careers by then and couldn’t take an 8 month LOA from work to join his campaign staff.

He also received some bad advice from consultants with good reputations. Notably, I don’t remember any John Brabender ads, and the tone of his message was overall way too positive.

The 2010 Vitter TV ads (produced by Brabender) were the best I’ve ever seen and focused entirely on the negatives of his opponent.

His 2010 campaign staff would have destroyed Edwards.

Sure Villere was responsible for the “growth” of R party... but to what extent did those party members that the LAGOP endorsed actually harm the party of limited government. My point was that true tea party candidates were not and are not wholeheartedly supported by LAGOP.

That's one of the biggest reasons why Vitter lost.

He let JBE sneak into the runoff uncontested without so much as a single mailer, ad spot or social media post against him. That was pure hubris in taking the conservative electorate for granted and too trusting they would not lose their composure and vote for a democrat.

There's also something that needs to be said about how Bobby Jindal did everything he could to kneecap Vitter like putting money and resources behind Scott Angelle and dropping out of the presidential primary the same week as the runoff to give voters a reason to vote against Vitter.
