To borrow from Moe Lane: Come, I will conceal nothing from you. We already know how the Louisiana Senate run-off is going to end, but in case Louisiana Republicans and conservatives need any more reason to get to the polls, Mary Landrieu’s Chief of Staff has just given it to us. With a hat tip to The Daily Caller, he Black Conservative Fund has released a video showing the Senator’s Washington Chief of Staff Don Cravins, Jr., telling a crowd that she will help Obama “finish” his agenda and will continue to vote with him 97% of the time. Here’s the video:
Here’s what he says:
He can’t finish his agenda, because he doesn’t have people like Mary Landrieu with him, so I’m asking you to go out and vote tomorrow for [mc_name name=’Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’L000550′ ].”
She’s been in office for eighteen years, and in the Senate, that’s what you need to get things done. And she will go on to vote with Barack Obama 97 percent of the time!
As the Daily Caller notes, this is a state where voters disapprove of Obama* 58% to 40%, so you have to think that a video like this won’t sit well with them. This is a sort of Kinsley gaffe-by-proxy. Cravins has admitted the truth about Landrieu, and Louisiana voters have finally realized it.
As I said, Mary Landrieu was already toast, but a video like this is just another large nail in the coffin. If you live in Louisiana, get out and vote if you haven’t already done so. However certain you might think Cassidy’s victory will be, there’s no reason to get lazy or overconfident now.
