He can probably make a shiat-tonne of money, and with Super PACs, it's going to be legal.
 
2014-02-20 01:35:05 PM  
He's farking 86.

And man, the election 1991 was a hoot. Your choice was this guy or David Duke.
 
2014-02-20 01:35:28 PM  
He's got my vote!

If we don't let ex-cons vote why the hell do we let them run for office?!?
 
2014-02-20 01:39:59 PM  
Could be worse
 
2014-02-20 01:47:15 PM  
Ex-con?  Why not?  The only difference between him and most of the rest of Congress is that he got caught.

I think this quote by him sums it up: "The only way I can lose this election is if I'm caught in bed with either a dead girl or a live boy"  -  Edwin Edwards

Remember everyone. . ."Vote For the Crook. It's Important."

And if the choice this time were Edwards (who lives just up the road from me) or David Farking Vitter, I'd vote for Edwin in a hot second.

Upon swearing in all politicians should be arrested and imprisoned for the length of their term in office, with their assets liquidated and confiscated. Assets can be placed into a fund indexed to whatever economic indicators seem best, such that if the country is successful during their term, they will personally profit, but if unsuccessful they will pay.

You want to run the country? Put up or shut up.

/cynical? Me?

Yeah, TFA sucks... It says he "definitely" says he's running, and that his wife says he is "just thinking about it". Big farking deal. Until something is for sure, I don't really think this counts as Fark Green, especially since the "integrity" thing is nowhere in this article. If he said it, then post the link to THAT farking article.

Huh.  I coulda sworn that was Huey Long or somebody from a long time ago, but the Googles seem to back you up.

Dims love their politicians crooked and untrustworthy

As opposed to Republicans, who love their politicians crooked and untrustworthy and stupid?

Both sides are bad, so vote brain damage.

Yes...both sides are evil and sometimes you have to pick the lesser of the two....but you are still picking evil.

Compared to the Bible thumping anchor baby running the show in Louisiana now, Edwards is a political genius.  To hell with Congress, they need to make him governor again before they wash away in a tide of unending derp policy.
 
2014-02-20 03:56:06 PM  
Well, I guess it's refreshing to know your congressman's a criminal rather than merely suspect it.

I vote for Edwin twice.

On behalf of 49er fans everywhere, fark this guy for making us lose Eddie DeBartolo Jr. and having his harpie sister and her idiot husband run the team. All so this guy can sell some casino liscense.

I thought Felons couldn't be elected to the US Congress?

Perhaps that was me just wishful thinking. Setting the bar pretty low these days, huh America?

Eddie Edwards and integrity...mutually exclusive unless "integrity" means  "a plague"...

Eddie Edwards or Bobby Jindal?  Calling Katrina; you didn't finish your work.

No idea on the rules, but you can apply to have your civil rights (like voting) re-instated.

lord knows edwards had his problems but he was great fun. and honest in his own way. remember it took the government a few times to get him. i'd take edwards over anybody the republicans will put up.

I remember when at the age of 70 he was sentenced to 10 years. They said it was a life sentence. lol.

Nope.
Both sides are bad.
One side is evil.

I'll pick an honest felon over a crooked man who hasn't been caught any day.

I was there, living in the Quarter. I remember driving out to the nicer suburbs and seeing the David Duke signs on the lawns of middle class families. Surreal.
