Skip to comments.Video: Landrieu Blames ABC Report of $100 Million Buyoff on 'Partisan Republican Bloggers'

What's $100 million of taxpayer money between a few U.S. Senators?
After reports surfaced, originally from ABC News, and subsequently commented upon by prominent lefties, like U.S. News and World Report's Bonnie Erbe as my colleague Noel Sheppard pointed out, Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., took the Senate floor on Nov. 21 to announce she would vote in favor to proceed forward with the Senate Democratic leadership's health bill. But she also took time to respond to allegations that $100 million earmarked for the Louisiana was added to that legislation to sway her vote by referring to the likes of ABC News correspondent Jonathan Karl and Erbe as "very partisan Republican bloggers."
"I know that might time is up, but I would like to ask personal privilege for just one more minute to address an issue that has come up unfortunately in the last 24 hours by some very partisan Republican bloggers so I need to respond I think and will do so now," Landrieu said. "One of the provisions in the framework of this bill that I've just decided to move on to debate has to do with fixing a very difficult situation that Louisiana is facing and any other state that might have a catastrophic disaster - let's hope they don't - like we did in 2005."

Pimps and prostitutes rule America.
The Guilty always blame the innocent. ALWAYS.
Hmmm, So Mary, it is just coincidence that you were on the fence regarding the ObamacareHealthControl Bill a week ago, but are strongly for it now that there is a curious $100 million add-on for Louisiana?
You are a traitor to our Nation, and I pray that you and the other socialist/liberal sell-outs in the House & Senate will be brought to justice - As Obama’s teleprompter so eloquently put it - in this life or the next.
Come clean, Ma’am. You took a BRIBE. And you KNOW it.
Mary, Mary - we now know you’re a prostitute who’ll do anything for money!
Reminds me of the old joke: We know what you are. We’re just haggling over the price.”
How in the world is this woman still in office? It’s my recollection that the major reason that Katrina flood relief efforts were so badly bungled was because Landrieu was playing politics by trying to coordinate with Dem. party hacks sent from Washington rather than working with the Bush Administration. I had assumed that she had the sense not to run again after her incompetent performance. I’m surprised to see her name still popping up as an elected official.
Just following in the footsteps of Huey Long and Edwin Edwards. How safe is her seat?
Bought and sold. One of the new Obama slaves.
At least the leftists are honest.
Acorn can’t save her in Louisanna
Hey, that’s no fair reporting the truth! You have to keep my under-the-table bribes a secret. No fair!
$100 million earmarked for the Louisiana was added to that legislation to sway her voteAnd check her freezer.
Can the state of La. force a recall vote on that pig with blonde hair?
Vote her out and make her leave her pension and other goodies behind.
This is what America has become - this is the end.
While the best of our youth fight for other peoples freedom, we sit at home watching our own freedom being taken from us and doing nothing.This is the legacy we leave them. It says it’s ok to die for another s freedom, as long as it’s in another country. Semper Fi
