Mary Landrieu’s Democrat Ticket-mate Edwin Edwards…In 5 Gifs
Democrat Edwin Edwards, a former Louisiana governor who was sentenced to 10 years in prison on racketeering charges, is out of the slammer and back on the ballot. He’ll be running for Congress this November on the same slate as Mary Landrieu. If this campaign is as…colorful…as past efforts it could result in some uncomfortable questions for Senator Landrieu. Just how uncomfortable? Here are 5 gifs that summarize Edwin Edwards.
1. “A man is only as old as the woman he feels.” – Edwin Edwards
2. “In 1997, when I saw the possibility of going to prison, I had sperm removed from me and stored.” – Edwin Edwards
3. “Vote for the crook. It’s important” – Edwards Campaign Slogan
5. Landrieu contributed to and attended an Edwards donor retreat in Paris to help retire his substantial campaign debt. (“Ten Years After Edwards Fundraising Trip to Paris, Times Picayune, 1/30/94)
