Cedric Richmond, who wants to be a Congressman and has the endorsement of both the mayor of New Orleans and the president of the United States, apparently isn’t a particularly friendly bar patron. He also sucks at pool.
And he wants you to know that he doesn’t work for the state. The state works for him.
Via American Zombie, which has done outstanding work detailing the more substantial abuses Richmond is apparently guilty of. A full expose’ of his non-profit skullduggery by the Times-Picayune, WWL, Fox 8 (Lee Zurik, call your office) or even CityBusiness is long overdue.
President Obama says Richmond “shares our values.” If that’s true, maybe Obama’s talking about the fact Richmond stinks at pool the way Obama sucks at bowling.
