The thing you notice most about New Orleans’ mayor LaToya Cantrell is how entitled and nasty she is. That was on display Wednesday at a press conference when she started whining at Lee Zurik about how he’s persecuting her for exposing the fact she’s using a city-owned apartment to host a sexual tryst with her NOPD bodyguard.
New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell answered questions Wednesday about issues surrounding her leadership. FOX 8 investigative reporter Lee Zurik questioned if Cantrell’s use of city-owned French Quarter apartment and excessive travel was a detriment to her leadership.
“It kind of freaks me out to see you quite frankly because you’ve been very inappropriate in my opinion,” Cantrell responded.
Zurik has been running a series of reports pertaining to Cantrell’s use of a city-owned apartment and has more than 600 hours of recordings of her entering and leaving the apartment.
Cantrell was dismissive of Zurik when he asked a follow-up question.
“You’ve done more than any other reporter in this room that has been in my opinion in violation of me as a human being, so with that sir, thank you very much,” said Cantrell.
It was common knowledge for weeks and months that Cantrell was screwing the taxpayers along with her boyfriend at that apartment. If it wasn’t Zurik who exposed it, somebody else was eventually going to.
But that’s not something LaToya Cantrell is capable of understanding or recognizing.
Check out this bizarre exchange and ask yourself who it’s supposed to persuade, and pay particular attention to that singsong-y, overly verbose speech where she’s trying to sound educated rather than somebody who’s about to drop F-bombs and scream at him.
