If you're riveted by dirty politics, you'll dig this tale of e-mail intrigue reported by PoliticsLA.com (an affiliate of regional news network NewsHorn.com).
This past Thursday, an e-mail went out to recipients of New Orleans City Council District A incumbent Jay Batt's newsletter with the subject header, "[Jay Batt Campaign] Do Not Vote For Mitch Landrieu." Landrieu was the main contender running against embattled mayoral incumbent, Ray Nagin, of Katrina fame. (Landrieu lost in the close runoff, by the way. So did Batt.)
Here's the crux of the message:
Mitch Landrieu has retracted an endorsement he made of my candidacy. I am appalled that Mitch would do this and I call on all my supporters to refrain from voting for Mitch on Saturday.
