The Red Bayou Show, Episode 59 – The Dekes At LSU, John Bel’s Crooked Pals, Murder In The Bayou, Hillary’s Health And LSU Quarterbacks

This week Scott McKay and Brian Haldane dive into a “Grab Bag” show. They talk about numerous topics including, the DKE’s at LSU are catching heat again because of their game day signs. Apparently, last week’s sign making fun of Colin Kaepernick offended someone who interns at the Governor’s office.

The guys talk to Melissa Landry, Executive Director of the watchdog group Louisiana Lawsuit Abuse Watch, about coastal lawsuits. Landry discusses some of the questionable choices the Governor has made in appointing attorneys to handle the suits. She explains the connections those attorneys have to John Bel Edwards, and why those connections raise ethical concerns.

After speaking with Melissa, they talk about the bubbling potential scandal in the Senate race. The story starts with a new book titled Murder In The Bayou. It’s about the disappearance and murder of eight prostitutes in Southwest Louisiana between 2005 and 2009. In the book, author Ethan Brown finds a connection that brings Congressman Charles Boustany into the fray. Boustany said one of his opponents, State Treasurer John Kennedy was behind the accusations. Kennedy returned volley with a press release, which Scott reads verbatim on the show, that is being called, “the burn of the election cycle.”

And of course, the guys weren’t going to let the week slide by without mention of Hillary Clinton’s medical episode from the weekend. Basically, both Scott and Brian say they don’t believe an ounce of what’s coming from her camp in regards to their explanations.

Before the show closes out, the guys discuss the change at quarterback for LSU, and will Danny Etling see success in the weeks to come.
