Residency Issues, Campaign Flights, And Other Reasons Why Senator Landrieu Is Terrible For Louisiana, But Great For DC
Senator Landrieu has packed a bag and headed back to the great state of Louisiana, a place that decades ago she once lived, to seek re-election to the US Senate. With less than 2 months until the mid-term election Senator Landrieu is at it again. She has returned to campaign, in a desperate attempt to keep her job as Obama's #1 supporter representing the state. So as Senator Landrieu sets up shop in Louisiana for the next few weeks, here are a few things to keep in mind about her re-election bid…
1.) She doesn't live in Louisiana. Her hometown newspaper, The Washington Post, ran a front page story highlighting that fact.
2.) Senator Landrieu moved to Washington, D.C. in 1997 – the same year that "I Believe I Can Fly" was burning up the charts!
3.) And speaking of flying, did you know that Senator Landrieu improperly billed taxpayers to the tune of tens-of-thousands of dollars for the use of private airplanes for campaign events? Surely we can't be serious! We are serious, and don't call us Shirley.
So now that Air Mary has landed in Louisiana, what is she talking to voters about?
4.) The border? Senator Landrieu is now running an ad about building a border fence – now if you're like most Louisianans, you probably remember when Mary Landrieu called that exact same idea "dumb" during a floor speech last year.
5.)The fact that she won "Lie of the Year" for her support of Obamacare's "keep your doctor" pledge?
6.)The fact that she votes with Obama 95% of the time? Landrieu gave an A+ grade to an F Presidency.
7.) But don't take our word that Senator Landrieu doesn't live in Louisiana, just take a look at her voter registration – she literally crossed out her home address in DC, and replaced it with her parents' basement!
8.) So let's do Senator Landrieu a favor – send her back home to Washington DC for good, but not with the title of Senator "from Louisiana." That way she can still live in DC, work in DC, and if she's up for it, she can run for Mayor of Washington, DC next time around.
