Scott Walker to Wisconsin: 'I Am the Other Scott Walker'
Scott Walker's name is on the tip of everybody's tongues these days, and apparently that's doing wonders for traffic on the website of WDSU's anchor - and his hate mailbox too! With Wisconsin's gubernatorial recall vote coming up Tuesday, our Scott Walker took to the keyboard to ensure the people of Wisconsin that he is not, in fact, the Scott Walker that took away their collective bargaining rights. "Let [fellow Wisconsinites] know that I have much better hair than your Scott Walker…and I’ll be in New Orleans anchoring the news on June 5," he wrote.
Slurp's Up: New Orleans Oyster Festival Hits The River
This Weekend, Oyster Fest is back, for it’s second attempt at educating not only New Orleans (who already well know) but the nation about the many benefits of the Louisiana Gulf Oyster. Their motto isn’t “eat oysters, live longer’, but ‘eat oysters, love longer’- can’t argue with that one.
Red Light Abuse Green Lights NOPD Reform
It takes a lot of work to write probing, investigative journalism, and the returns are limited to pats on the back and empty phrases about defending the glories of democracy. But, yesterday, WDSU wrote a story that earned a rare response from the halls of power. The report found the NOPD Eight District Commander was double-dipping by forming a company that got paid city money to look at video of red-light cameras. By law, a cop has to look at the video to make running a red light an official crime. Due to the NOPD's much-maligned paid detail system, Edwin Hosli's company, Anytime Solutions, was allowed to get city money for looking at the footage. Hosli runs the police district that covers the French Quarter, CBD and part of the Marigny. His side company employs what WDSU called a "who's who of the NOPD's top brass."
