RIP Edwin Edwards


Recommended Posts

Terrible statement.


However, what's interesting about Edwards is his 1991 election, where he had no chance of winning.  In fact, "Lanny Keller, a journalist for the defunct Shreveport Journal wrote that the only way Edwin Edwards could ever be elected again was to run against Adolf Hitler. These words turned out to be shockingly prophetic, since after the 1991 primary Edwards discovered his runoff opponent to be former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, David Duke."

(The funny part is that it happened in a state with French heritage, but in 2002, something similar happened in France with Chirac and Le Pen.)
