“If you prick us, do we not bleed?
If you poison us, do we not die?
And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?”
Act 3, Scene 1
What did Eddie know about the bid-rigging?

Part Five of our ongoing series: The Erector Set
A day before he was elected to Congress, Ralph Abraham appeared on the Jim Engster Show to discuss his six-figure promise to charity.
Abraham’s answers severely undermine every explanation his campaign now offers as an excuse.
He’s created a successful, respected company, making millions from it. He has also tried (and thus far failed) to create both a new city and school district. Now Eddie Rispone wants to create an “improved” Louisiana, by becoming the state’s next governor.
The congressman from Louisiana’s Fifth District, who is now running for governor, has yet to offer any cogent explanation for breaking his pledge to donate his salary to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and the Veterans Independence Fund or evidence of any donations he ever made.

Rep. Ralph Abraham, now running for governor, vowed to donate every dime he made in Congress to two nonprofits.
His office claims he stopped donating after his first term, and quietly, his campaign scrubbed the pledge from his website.
