The Red Pelican

Aside from New York, no other state in the country is more intimately connected to the Mueller investigation than Louisiana. 

Louisiana’s Fourth Branch of Government, 1976-1991

During the past 20 years, a small group of anti-government ideologues has transformed state politics by preaching fiscal responsibility. Quietly, they’ve also collected billions in tax breaks, incentives, and government contracts. Part one of an ongoing series.

More than a year later, experts continue to question the legality of Sen. Kennedy’s $2.4 million donation to a SuperPAC.

A person very close to Sen. Kennedy, who asked to speak on the condition of anonymity, believes the complaints are nothing more than sour grapes and fake news promoted by his opponents and his most vociferous partisan critics. However, there are many others who contend that Kennedy’s actions violated both the spirit and the letter of the law and demonstrated a clear-cut lack of integrity and willingness to dismiss the values to which an ethical leader should aspire.

Bienvenue en Louisiane.
