GRAVES, EWE CAMPAIGNS GO INTO THE SEWER IN 6TH DISTRICT
As readers of this blog know well, I am no fan of Edwards. He’s an unrepentant felon whose election would further sully Louisiana’s reputation. I had long ago decided that I would vote for one of Edwards’ Republican opponents. It’s a safe GOP district, so my plan was to vote for the least objectionable Republican, the person most likely to listen to the other side and least likely to contribute to partisan gridlock.
Until a few days ago, I thought that might be Graves. After all, he’d worked in D.C. for Sen. Mary Landrieu. People who know him well — I don’t know him, except by reputation — tell me he’s a fairly liberal person who simply sold out to run for public office.
