Nagin Again

Lawyers for federal inmate No. 32751-034 were back in court today. Lawyers for C. Ray Nagin asked the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to throw out the former Mayor’s 2014 conviction because the judge had poorly advised the jury.

SNL Jabs Jindal Again

Bobby Jindal has long been a metaphorical punchline to many Louisianans. Now, Saturday Night Live is making Candidate J a literal punchline for many Americans. A sketch during this weekend’s (10.03) show focused on a satirical drug called “Abilify” that will cure people of dementia causing them to think that they can be the POTUS. As one can imagine, Jindal provided an easy kicker.

Brawl Monitor

Hutson Responds to OIG Attack

Alan Moore is smiling somewhere. His question, “Who watches the watchmen?” provides a quick summary of the most recent question in New Orleans government. On Tuesday (9.29), New Orleans Inspector General Ed Quatrevaux publicly released an intense letter demanding that the Ethics Review Board fire Independent Police Monitor Susan Hutson for "ethical misconduct and unprofessional conduct.” At 11p.m. on Wednesday (9.30) night, Hutson fired back with a letter of her own.

Trump's Duck In Hand

Bobby Jindal does not have much support at home. Now, the Candidate J is losing followers from his small base. This week, Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson defected from Candidate J to the Trump camp.

Scalise Eyes Leader's Office

Steve Scalise is trying to switch jobs and it’s not because of David Duke’s threat to challenge him in the next election. The House Whip is eyeing the bigger digs assigned to the House Majority Leader after John Boehner announced plans to retire from Congress.

Jindal: Kindle or Dwindle

Bobby Jindal has puled consistently negative reviews from voters at home and nationally. However, in the last 24 hours da Gov’ has upgraded to mixed reviews. Two powerhouse political pubs have logged in on Candidate J: Politico is predicting that Jindal is next to drop out of the race and is pegging Jindal as a dark horse to win Iowa.

Vitter Muddies the Waters

Scott Angelle and Jay Dardenne nipping at David Vitter’s heels in the latest round of gubernatorial polls and the heir apparent is feeling the heat. Vitter responded to his sinking numbers by turning on the hose and lobbing some mud at his opponents this week.

Jindal: Biggest Discrimination Is Against Christians

Bobby Jindal is at again. As da Gov’s polling hovers around one percent, he continues to grasp at culture wars in an attempt to build support. During Wednesday’s (9.16) kiddie table GOP debate Jindal posited that American Christians are the most persecuted group in the country.

Slight Court

Federal Judge Smacks Down Jindal's Common Core Suit

Bobby J is busy prepping for this afternoon’s kiddie table debate in California, but this morning a federal judge in Baton Rouge handed the candidate a major defeat. Judge Shelly Dick ruled against Jindal’s efforts to block Common Core.

Hot Spots

Election season arrived along with football season. With registration over, the push for votes is in overdrive. All four candidates eying the mansion in Baton Rouge are pushing their cause through the miracles of modern video. NoDef has the highlights after the jump.
