Louisiana Picks Democrat as Next Governor, Throws GOP David Vitter Into The Used Diaper Bin

Vitter Loses Election

With Republican Piyush “Bobby” Jindal term limiting out of his job as Louisiana Governor, Democrat John Bel Edwards won the runoff election for Louisiana governor last night, defeating , Republican “Diaper” David Vitter, and handing the Democrats their first statewide victory since 2008.

Each runoff contender sought to tie his opponent to an unpopular figure in Louisiana: Edwards claimed Vitter would represent a “Jindal third term,” while Vitter tagged Edwards as an “Obama liberal.”

But the rabidly anti-gay Vitter was also hit with repeated attacks for a 2007 prostitution scandal in which he apologized for a “serious sin” after he was linked through phone records to Washington’s “D.C. Madam.”  Also Vitter had  been conducting a lengthy affair with a New Orleans prostitute.  (It was later revealed by one of his call girls that Vitter liked to be dressed in diapers during his sessions. (See diaper story here). In typical hypocritical Republican “Family Values” fashion however, Vitter failed to resign his seat after having called upon to do so.) Vitter also had trouble uniting Republicans after a blistering primary competition in which Vitter trashed two GOP rivals and received heavy criticism for his scorched-earth political style. And his campaign was accused of ethical improprieties after allegations it secretly recorded political opponents.

Edwards’ win offered a rare pick-up of a governor’s seat for Democrats in the conservative Deep South. After his loss, Vitter immediately announced that he wouldn’t seek re-election to the U.S. Senate next year, creating a new competition for what had been a safe GOP seat.

Vitter also announced he will  began looking for a Nanny.

ACLU Sues Louisianna Governor Piyush “Bobby” Jindal Over Religious Freedom Executive Order

Piyush Jindal Lawsuit


The Louisiana ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), along with the American Equality Foundation and six New Orleans residents are suing GOP Governor Piyush “Bobby” Jindal over the religious freedom executive order he released in May that is aimed at protecting “Christians” who oppose same-sex marriage.

“[The lawsuit] is over the fact that the governor didn’t have the authority to do this in the first place,” said Marjorie Esman, head of the ACLU of Louisiana, in an interview and contends that Jindal exceeded his executive authority in issuing the order, claiming that only the Louisiana Legislature has the power to create a “substantive right” as the Jindal executive order claims it does.

“Gov. Jindal has violated the Louisiana Constitution by setting up special protections for those who share his belief system. In our country no one is above the law, including the Governor,”

In a statement following notice of the lawsuit Jindal wrote:

“This Executive Order protects religious liberty.  The ACLU used to defend civil liberties, now it appears they attack them.  The Left likes to pick and choose which liberties they support at any given time, and it seems to me that religious liberty has fallen out of favor with them. Religious liberty is fundamental to our freedom as Americans, and I will not back down from defending it.”
