Libertarians Lose to Louisiana G.O.P
Yesterday, we were treated to the latest installation of drama surrounding Ron Paul's bid to claim Louisana's delegation to the GOP Convention. The latest ruling went against Paul's posse in a drama that has included a floor fight turned literal, lots of YouTube vids, and of course, a heated debate about the gold standard.
Ron Paul Supporter Arrested Amid GOP Covention Chaos
by Shay Sokol
A 56-year-old Ron Paul supporter was arrested and his hip allegedly displaced during an unruly party rift at the Louisiana Republican State Convention in Shreveport on Saturday. The party met at the State Convention to decide on delegates to the national convention in Tampa in August, where disagreement over “supplemental rules” passed earlier in the week by the state party’s central committee caused a split at the convention.
Ron Paul Locks Up Louisiana Caucus
There were two first names at the top of the results over the weekend, as Ron Paul secured a victory in the Louisiana caucus. No one was paying too much attention to the caucus beforehand, but the result has managed to turn a few Republican heads. What's that? You thought Santorum already won here?
Today: Vote Before You Fest
Football and festivals have once again threatened to overshadow civic duty in South Louisiana. But the neutral grounds are once again covered with campaign signs, so that must mean it's time to vote. On the local scene, the race for the citywide, at-large seat on the City Council is overstuffed with candidates and ideas. And the national political eggheads roll into Louisiana today as Republican voters cast ballots for who among Romney, Gingrich, Santorum and Ron Paul should be president.
Where in Louisiana Are the Republican Presidential Candidates?
The long, slogging Republican nomination process rolls into Louisiana this weekend, with Saturday's primary voting providing Louisiana residents with something to go out and do before they get around to an afternoon of festing. The four candidates that remain in the race would probably appreciate some festing before the actual day of voting so they would have a nice, easy place to grab greasy food and babies for photo-ops. But, since they aren't sticking around until Saturday, they'll have to settle for shooting guns and shopping. Like we said, it's a long hard slog. Here's where each candidate will be appearing:
NoDef Numbers, June 20-28
This week, two of Katrina's most controversial figures released their own versions of the story, Anthony Bourdain riled up some Cajuns and, as ever, political signs caused some bellyaching. Once again, Ian Hoch makes the numbers behind the news a little easier on the eyes. Click through to see how it all broke down.
Freedom Bounty Offered For Stolen Ron Paul Sign
Ron Paul pushes a libretarian philosophy that advocates for exercising free will in most societal decisions. But when it comes to taking Ron Paul signs, one of the Texas Congressman's supporters is showing no leeway. Someone stole a giant Ron Paul campaign sign from the side of I-10 westbound between Irish Bayou and the junction of Interstate 510. The Ron Paul supporter who put it there is offering a reward on Craigslist. The ad concludes: "I invested my own money and time to build this sign and trailers don't grow on trees." If we're getting specific, neither do 8' X 16' Ron Paul signs.
Bids in the Hall
Notes from the Republican Leadership Conference
At the giant GOP meeting being held in New Orleans, Haley Barbour urges everyone to unite in opposition to Barack Obama, Herman Cain defends his lack of foreign policy experience, and Ron Paul seems to have the skater vote sewn up.
