WHY WOULD ANYONE LIVE THERE?:
Landrieu claims parents' home as her own, raising questions of Louisiana residency (Philip Rucker, August 28, 2014, Washington Post)
Posted by Orrin Judd at August 29, 2014 8:37 AMIn Washington, Sen. Mary Landrieu lives in a stately, $2.5 million brick manse she and her husband built on Capitol Hill.Here in Louisiana, however, the Democrat does not have a home of her own. She is registered to vote at a large bungalow in New Orleans that her parents have lived in for many decades, according to a Washington Post review of Landrieu's federal financial disclosures and local property and voting records.On a statement of candidacy Landrieu filed with the Federal Election Commission in January, she listed her Capitol Hill home as her address. But when qualifying for the ballot in Louisiana last week, she listed the family's raised-basement home here on South Prieur Street.
