Got this in my email inbox today from none other than Richard Viguerie:
To this day I’m proud of my association with Ron Paul.
I’m equally proud of my association with Woody Jenkins, who is running for Congress in a special election just three weeks away.
I hope you’ll join me in supporting Woody Jenkins:
I’ve known Woody Jenkins for about as long as I’ve known Dr. Paul – roughly 35 years.
Woody is widely considered one of the brightest, most articulate conservative leaders in the country.
And when I learned he was running for Congress I thought it was too good to be true.
Woody earned a national reputation while serving for 28 years in the Louisiana statehouse.
He ran for the U.S. Senate in 1996 against Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu. The razor-thin election – marred by massive New Orleans vote fraud – is considered by many to have been stolen.
Does anyone remember that fiasco with the recount. I was in my (first) senior year at LSU when this happened. I remember Woody was lambasted and ridiculed DAILY as a pitiful whiner. I didn’t have a really informed opinion at the time other than I wanted him to have won. I never really trusted the vote from New Orleans, for a plethora of reasons, but does anyone have any info on how credible Viguerie’s “considered by many” is?
