Report: Landrieu Does Not Have A House In Louisiana

Landrieu_Mary3The Washington Post is reporting that Landrieu has gone D.C. full-time. She has a big $2.5 million mansion in D.C., but does not have a home in New Orleans – and she hasn’t for years.

The Post reports:

“In Washington, Sen. Mary Landrieu lives in a stately, $2.5 million brick manse she and her husband built on Capitol Hill. Here in Louisiana, however, the Democrat does not have a home of her own. She is registered to vote at a large bungalow in New Orleans that her parents have lived in for many decades, according to a Washington Post review of Landrieu’s federal financial disclosures and local property and voting records.”

And here’s the kicker:

“But there is no record that she or her husband, Frank Snellings, personally own a home in the state.”

Landrieu is claiming that her primary residence is the home that her parents live in, but Landrieu doesn’t seem to be there all that often according to neighbors:

“On the blocks surrounding the house this week, blue and yellow ‘I’m With Mary’ campaign signs were visible in many yards. But several residents said they had not seen Landrieu in the neighborhood recently.”

“‘I don’t think she lives there,’ said Fontaine Wells, 65, pointing at the Landrieu home. ‘She might come visit, but come on now – she lives in D.C. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her.'”

“‘Is Mary’s address the Landrieu’s family home?’ Wright asked. ‘I don’t know where she lives. I’ve never seen her around the neighborhood. It doesn’t mean she’s not here, but I haven’t seen her. We see Moon, we see Verna, we see the mayor.'”
