A Louisiana mayor whose son is Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu’s chief of staff told voters at a private event to vote twice, speaking to a partisan crowd 24 hours before Election Day last month.
Video of Opelousas, Louisiana Mayor Don Cravins Sr.’s Nov. 3 remarks show him telling a crowd in his home town that ‘if you “early voted,” go vote again tomorrow. One more time’s not going to hurt.‘
Louisianans, like Americans in many states, had the option of either voting ‘early’ or showing up on Election Day. Taking advantage of both options would be a crime.
