The Race for Louisiana's Second Congressional District: A Teaser

At some point, soon, we're going to have a little chat about Cedric Richmond.  He's the Democratic candidate for the Second District congressional seat in Louisiana currently held by first-termer Republican (RINO-ish) Anh "Joseph" Cao.

This is the seat formerly held by jailbird William "Dollar Bill" Jefferson, whom you might recall as the custodian of  $90K in "cold cash" in his freezer.  Cash which was nominally intended to bribe some folks in Nigeria, and the exchange of which had been caught on video by the FBI.

The esteemed Mr. Richmond is the product of the New Orleans Culture of Corruption, and is the protege of some seriously flawed muckety-mucks of that particular culture.  He might be young, but he has a record of ethics violations and sleazy behavior that would befit a man many years his senior.

And, just guess who has endorsed his candidacy?  Can't guess?  Here's a hint:

Oh yeah.  The Young President has definitely elevated my opinion of him with this endorsement.

Ick.  Slimy.
