Ex-Con Democrat Mulling Run for Congress

Considering the sorry state of Congressional Democrats, this criminal might add an air of respectability to Pelosi’s band of miscreants.

Disgraced former Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards (D) may consider running for Congress this November, according to a report.

An unidentified “trusted” source told The Hayride that Edwards may run in the state’s 6th District congressional race in the midterm elections this year. The Hayride is a Louisana news and commentary website that focuses on national politics.

The seat will open up as incumbent Rep. Bill Cassidy (R) runs against incumbent Mary Landrieu (D) for her Senate seat.

Edwards, 86, served intermittently as governor of Louisiana for four terms from the early 1970s until the mid 1990s.

In 2001, he was found guilty on money laundering, conspiracy and racketeering charges. He was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison. He was released early from his parole last February.
