CULTURE OF CORRUPTION: Former Gov. Edwin Edwards announces House bid.

Former Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards (D) announced Monday he will enter the race to replace Rep. Bill Cassidy (R) in the state’s 6th Congressional District.

Edwards, the 86-year-old who served an eight-year prison sentence after leaving office, told a crowd in the state he would reenter the political fray despite all the reasons against it. . . . He was released from prison in 2011 after being convicted of racketeering charges in 2001.

Remember when Nancy Pelosi said we needed to “drain the swamp” in Washington? Instead, the Dems are recycling crooked pols from the Bayou State.
