Major Democrat donor Calvin Fayard’s law partner, Blayne Honeycutt was videotaped destroying the campaign sign belonging to his opponent, Jerry Denton. The two men are running for city judge in Denham Springs.
“Mr. Honeycutt’s brazen actions are an insult to the voters of Denham Springs,” Jerry Denton said in a statement. “As a candidate for judge, we’re held to a high standard of honor, integrity and respect for the constitutional rights of others. This type of behavior is unacceptable, insulting and reprehensible. Mr. Honeycutt showed a blatant disregard for the First Amendment and civil political discourse. There is no doubt that he has personally stooped to such desperate campaigning as it becomes clearer with each passing day that the voters of Denham Springs are rallying behind our campaign for city judge.”
Denton has contacted law enforcement and is in the process of filing a criminal complaint.
“Mr. Honeycutt, no one is above the law,” Denton continued. “You owe, and I demand, a full apology to the voters of Denham Springs. It’s ashamed that a man running for judge would show such poor judgement.”
Honeycutt currently serves as Denham Springs city prosecutor.
