    The New Orleans Police Department and hundreds of civilians gathered Saturday (June 27) to remember officer Daryle Holloway, shot dead a week earlier while driving an assault suspect to jail. Mourners recalled a father and a "real-life hero" who was quick with a laugh and lived to serve his community. Long after the pews had filled at St. Maria Goretti Roman Catholic Church, uniformed police officers continued to arrive, lining the back of the nave. Patrol cars from all across the region parked on the Crowder Boulevard neutral ground. Mounted officers stood solemn watch outside under the shade of an...

    The charge that Steve Scalise (R-LA) spoke at a David Duke organization was something of a surprise. He just doesn't seen like them kind of guy who would do such a thing. It turns out that he didn't. His office issued a statement: “One of the many groups that I spoke to regarding this critical legislation was a group whose views I wholeheartedly condemn,” he said. “It was a mistake I regret, and I emphatically oppose the divisive racial and religious views groups like these hold.” Fellow Congressman Cedric Richmond(D-LA), who is black, issued his own statement: "I don't think...

    By now, you probably already know that Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) once addressed a crowd of people in the same hotel where a white nationalist conference was being held in 2002. Scalise, a state representative at the time, spoke hours before the white nationalist meeting began, so it looks like this story turned out to be a big nothing burger. Republicans and Democrats came to Scalise’s aid, with Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) saying that his colleague doesn’t have a “racist bone in his body.” With David Duke in the mix, Scalise, who’s the House Majority Whip, was bound to get some media attention over...

    This newspaper makes the following recommendations for Tuesday's ballot. CONGRESS U.S. Senate David Vitter Much of Sen. Vitter's first term in the Senate came in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the levee breaches that left 80 percent of New Orleans under water.

    The prize – and he will likely keep it for some time – goes to Louisiana Democrat Party press flack Kevin Franck, who put out a statement in answer to new charges of skeletons in Cedric Richmond’s closet which ups the ante on left-wing accusations of racism. “Joseph Cao and his allies are trying to take New Orleans politics back to the bad old days of Leander Perez and the White Citizens Council…Mr. Cao clearly thinks that an orchestrated whisper campaign based on racist stereotypes of African-American men will help him win votes, but those shameful race-baiting tactics have no...

    BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - State Representative Cedric Richmond told his colleagues in the Louisiana House today that black voters who vote for Democrats need to reconsider their loyalties, in light of that party's treatment of Congressman William Jefferson. Today, the U.S. House stripped Jefferson of his assignment on the powerful Ways and Means Committee at the recommendation of House Democrats. Richmond, a Democrat from New Orleans, condemned the national party for removing Jefferson from the committee because of a growing bribery scandal that surrounds him. Jefferson has not been charged with a crime but is under federal investigation. Richmond,...
