In the race for the Second Congressional District of Louisiana, The Weathers Report endorses Karen Carter, the candidate who has never had $90,000 in ill-gotten cash in her freezer. No one is going to jail for crimes they allegedly committed with her, so that is a plus, too.

She has not been the sharpest in the debates, and she did not get a chance to redeem herself tonight. The election-eve debate on WWL was cancelled when her opponent was unable to return from Washington D.C. for floor vote procuring offshore oil royalties for Louisiana.

Actually, that is the real story of the night – the offshore oil royalties passage – as the election should be easily won by Carter. If not, there will probably be a special election to replace the soon-to-be-indicted congressman. Thanks for the memories Dollar Bill.
