MORE PEOPLE TO MAKE FAMOUS: Meet Edwin Edwards’ 2nd Quarter Donors

We pledged at the very beginning that we would publicize the names and addresses of everybody who decided it was a better use of their money to support the attempt of a convicted felon to be elected to Congress than to give that money to charity, and we did just that back in April.

Now it’s July, and with Edwin Edwards’ 2nd quarter FEC disclosure coming out it’s time to do it again.

This time we’ve got a lot more Edwards donors to make famous, because the 86-year old former governor, federal inmate and failed reality TV star managed to raise some $177,000 in the 2nd quarter after only raising $32,000 in the first quarter. That’s not an impressive figure by any means with respect to the 6th District race; after all Garret Graves raised nearly a half-million bucks in the 2nd quarter.

But there are a large number of Edwards donors on that list compared to the first disclosure, nearly all of whom are Louisiana people. Which is unfortunate, as it means we can’t say there are out-of-state folks inflicting him on us or that the Democrat Party is propping Edwards up so far in an effort to keep him relevant so as to pump Mary Landrieu’s prospective turnout.

Nope, these are our idiots. These are our people who think it’s a good idea to support a felon convicted on public corruption charges as the next congressman from the 6th District.

Well, except for the Vietnamese massage parlor owner in San Diego who gave him $7,500. (No, we’re not kidding about that).

Vince Vance, of Vince Vance and the Valiants, is in for $2,000. New Orleans real estate developer and well-known political moneybag Joe Canizaro is in for $2,500. There are big donations in there from Buddy Leach and John Breaux, as well as a number of big contributions from ambulance chasers and housewives.

And retired people. This list can generally put paid to the idea that the Republican Party is the party of old white people. You can’t get any older and whiter than this group of geezers. It’s like he was trolling the early-bird dinner buffet line at the casino for campaign checks. That, plus it looks like Edwards went into Melville, Louisiana for a fundraiser and if he was Baby Face Nelson he couldn’t have taken the locals for more of their money.

If you know any of these people, you’re welcome to contact them and ask why on earth these checks couldn’t go to help wounded veterans or homeless kids…
