Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards has released two statements today, one concerning the Joint Legislative Committee on the Budget and the second concerning the Louisiana legislative audit of former State Police Mike Edmonson.
Grab your popcorn and coke. The Senator John Kennedy vs. Governor John Bel Edwards fight is soon to begin as speculation mounts whether the freshman US Senator is running for the Governor’s spot, come 2019.
The latest spat involves the former State Police head, Superintendent Mike Edmonson. Kennedy, who had been State Treasurer and the Secretary of Revenues before that, believes that Edmonson should pay back taxes on certain income on services and accommodations provided to him over the past years as he headed the State Police.
The controversy which ultimately ended the distinguished career of the State Police Superintendent, Mike Edmonson, appears to have come to an end.
