After the losses of Cynthia McKinney and Donna Edwards to shameless handkerchief head corporate whores, Hank Johnson and Al Wynn, its time for the ranks of progressive sisters in congress to be replenished by one. Her name is Karen Carter, a lawyer and Louisiana State Representative.
Sister Carter is running against the number one handkerchief head corporate whore, “Dollar Bill” Jefferson D-New Orleans of the $90,000 in bribe money in the freezer fame. The man who voted to lighten the load of the nation’s millionaires and billionaires by cutting their taxes while thousands of his constituents remain homeless, unemployed, without hope, and unable to come home to New Orleans.
Mayor Ray Nagin, who left the poor to drown, endorsed Jefferson. He said, “until he’s indicted, I think we ought to presume he’s innocent until proven guilty.” The black fool who didn’t come to anybody’s aid during Katrina is now breaking his neck to come to the aid of a crook. How convenient.
Sister Carter is about business, not B.S. While “Dollar Bill” was busy selling us out, Sister Carter was busy enacting school reform legislation to straighten out the intractable mess that is the Orleans Parish school district. Sister Carter voted against banning a woman’s right to choose and against the nonsense of banning same-sex marriage.
She even did something about the levee boards that were in charge of the disaster that Katrina wrought by merging them into one board so the left hand knows what the damn right hand is doing. In short, the sister is on point. Hopefully, this November, she’ll be large and in charge by becoming New Orleans next Congresswoman.
