The Poisoned Ink Well

When the leaders in a particular area surround themselves with nothing but prostitutes, drug dealers, and convicts, (and not even educated criminals, I mean we are talking, dumb as shit, illiterate, crooks) and then depend on said creatures for their ear to the ground and a knowledge of what is going on with the electorate then believe me they get a lot of misinformation. I do mean Democrat as well as Republicans.

I grew up around the Louisiana legislature, so I do know what they are like.

[I worked in most of the campaigns of the mid 1970’s through the 1980‘s. I started when I was around 14 years old. My parents were die hard Democrats. My father, Edward B. Sr., went to college in Ruston, LA and did his post Graduate work at LSU (he was boyhood friends with many of the establishment of the town including the Coroner of Baton Rouge for many years, Hypolite Landry) he was an engineer in Baton Rouge employed mostly as a planner, a scheduler, and saftey specialist at the plants, but he also worked as an Architect and designer. My mom, Mad Love, liked to organize benefits, fundraisers, and stuff like that, always for the Democratic Party or any prominent Feminist 0rganization. We lobbied at the state capital for things like Sex Education and Equal Rights. I worked in every Democratic campaign of that era and knew most the good Republicans, too.]
