In an update to a piece placed on the blog earlier today accusing Jenkins of being Buddy Caldwell's shill, I would like to offer the following. First, thank you to Ken Romero and Dr. John Sutherland for discussing the issue on their afternoon program on KPEL radio in Lafayette. However, they mentioned that the implication was made that Jenkins was a liberal supporting Caldwell. I'd like the reader to go back and read the piece and note that there was no mention of Jenkins as a liberal.
Now, I'd like to ask the following of both Mr. Romero and Dr. Sutherland. Why would someone who calls himself a "conservative" support a candidate for public office that has the following history:
- Caldwell supports the reelection of liberal Democrat Barbara Norton to Louisiana legislature
- Caldwell called into question on pay-for-play on campaign contributions from chiropractics
- Caldwell supports a single payer system for healthcare
- Caldwell has several campaign contributors that worked on the BP settlement for the state
Now, I'm sure that Mr. Romero and Dr. Sutherland can support the position that they've made that I've accused Mr. Jenkins of being a liberal, which I have not. However, why is really Woody supporting someone with the credentials of a Democrat?
