Irrepressible and a new father at age 86, having served time for extortion, former Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards is seeking a comeback by running for an open seat in Congress.
Edwards has not lost a step. I did not vote for Obama: Where I was there were no voting machines, said the conservative Democrat, who was in federal prison at the time.
Edwards was accompanied by his 35-year-old third wife, Tina, and infant child. Theres a guy in Florida 101 years old running, and by the time I am his age Ill be in my seventh term, said Edwards, who served in the House before four tumultuous terms in the statehouse.

Well, he once said he’d win the election as long as he wasn’t found in bed with a dead woman or a live boy......................Louisiana once elected a dead man governor..............
Louisiana - Half under water, the other half under indictment.
A couple of other threads if anyone is interested in reading the comments thereon.

“Louisiana - Half under water, the other half under indictment.”
LOL! I’m in the presence of greatness.
I remember hearing that one back during Katrina.
Democrat dirty corrupt criminal scum.
A dad at 86. Well, there’s another child growing up without a father.
His criminal record would fit right in in the Beltway crowd.
On the plus side, this gentleman would not be the subject of a term limit discussion.
“conservative Democrat”...BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA that’s a hot one!
My husband waited on him when he was working as a butler for the high rollers at Harrah’s in Tahoe back in the late 70s. He was throwing around money, which we found out later probably wasn’t even his, lol.
*86* this 86 year old crook.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph.
Populist in the mold of Huey P. Long.
Spread da wealt, aroun’.
An take all you can get wid bo’t han’s.
The Ric Flair of politicians.
OK, gotta give the old guy credit; a trophy wife with a begotten kid to prove it.
“Laissez les bons temps rouler!”
(But he’ll never measure up to the Kingfish, who accomplished ten times more & was assassinated at less than half Edwards’ age.)
Well, at least he’s an honest crooked politician. He admits he’s a crook. /sarc
PUKE!!! Much preferred the old 3rd district I belong in before redistricting.
Lots of old folks born in stupid and stuck in stupid around here.
Hopefully he doesn't stand a chance, just not sure if he has a shot or not.............Yet.
She didn’t marry him for his looks or prowlness in the sack, that’s for sure.
“Accomplished” is a strange word for the Kingfish.
CONSERVATIVE Democrat.....NO SUCH THING!!!
“The Moon Griffon Show” is ablaze with the host and callers telling Edwards to get out, in order to save Louisiana the embarassment, and for the good of the country.
My own two thoughts are:
1. SURE! Let him run. Let him run till he falls, BEFORE the election.
2. If he falls AFTER the election, according to the IQ of those that will only remember his name on the ballot, what are the chances that THE MRS. EDWARDS takes his seat?
He is a criminal, deservant of no attention.
Thank God for Mr. Weiss, may have saved the country from full-blown Fascism.
You be sure to let us know how this old crook is doing on the campaign trail.
Lord have mercy, he’s 86 years old and trying to get back to feeding at the public trough!
Folks need to wise up and not give this old fossil criminal the time of day.
Don’t vote for the crook! It’s important.
Of course it wasn’t his! Since when do Democrats spend their own money?.
Louisiana has a Looooong history of corruption. See Huey Long and Earl long................
NawLins (New Orleans) was, from the beginning, a haven for pirates, smugglers, gun runners and lots of shady characters. The swamps were perfect hiding places for runaway slaves and criminals of all sorts. The ‘Cajuns’ are descendants of the French Acadians (hence the name) who were kicked out of Maritime Canada when the British took over and were shipped en masse to New Orleans.
Perhaps you have heard of “Mary Martha Corinne Morrison Claiborne Roberts (née Boggs)” AKA, Cokie Roberts of ABC News. Her daddy was Hale Boggs, who disappeared on a hunting trip to Alaska in late 1972. The plane was never found. He was the House Majority Leader and was scheduled to be the next Speaker of The House when he disappeared.....................
