Garret Graves, US Congressman from Louisiana's 6th District, absolutely destroys our Governor, "Honor Code" Edwards, regarding his pursuit to extort money from the oil and gas industry so vital to the Louisiana economy. Graves goes into great detail regarding the impact such a lawsuit would have on our state and the oil and gas industry for which many of our taxpayers rely on for their livelihoods.
The high point of the letter has to be Graves pointing out political ties with attorneys working on behalf of the state in this suit and Edwards.
"Coastal Louisiana is worth saving - not politicizing or used as a tool to enrich supporters and friends".
