Edwin did his time, more than he deserved. Never convicted of stealing anything. Get your facts straight. He was convicted on the testimony of a friend who thought Edwin was going to hurt him. He never hurt the man, or stole any money. Edwin shot straight and the FEDS didn't like it. The judge had a score to settle and he stuck it to EWE. I think EWE's record should be cleared and he should be able to campaign again. He helped Louisiana and stood up against the FEDS, No matter if they were DEM or REP, he didn't care. Edwin has magnetism and you must be jealous about his hot new wifey! THe man still has it, doesn't that chap your as s.

bribes, lieing, taking illegal money. what is the difference. if the money belonged anyone it should have gone in the louuisian treasjury. No he wasn't a friend. he was mafia and edwin was extorted money from him which is illegal. Only thing i am jealous of is his throwing away the little tax money that i had to pay louisian. He is a crook plain and simple. no question about it.should have spent a lot more time in jail for the millions of Louisiana tax money and campain money he threw around in vegas. Little wifey and the one he has now is nothing to be jeaolus of . Money, money is all they are after. hope she gets a pile of the illegal money he received.
