Nola Media Group’s Bruce Alpert wrote a whopper around 10 minutes ago on the prospects of Jim Letten keeping his job as US Attorney no matter who is elected Prez in a few weeks. I can almost hear vomit hitting the floor right now but I thought this part was the biggest hoot of ‘em all:
Democrats mentioned as possible candidates for the U.S. attorney’s job include New Orleans white-collar attorney Kenneth Polite, Louisiana Democratic Party Chairman Karen Carter Peterson and former New Orleans city attorney and current Entergy New Orleans CEO Charles Rice. Polite’s interest in the office was confirmed by a person familiar with his thinking, though Polite declined comment when reached on the phone. Carter Peterson didn’t return phone calls seeking comment. Rice said he had been surprised to hear his name surface in connection with the job, and that he has no interest in the post at the minute.
I reckon it’s not too early to start talking about this folks since Slabbed fav Dane Ciolino is yapping about same.
