Thank you thank you tell me about. This this'll yeah anything in and the reason why you think. Yeah he should resign and I guess why it would be a lot easier and everybody on at least not him maybe but her body in Jefferson Parish. Well actually I think it would be easier or you know. The super kind of thing that well. He needs to Shaquille what is currently in firms and with themselves. An idol but it's possible Serbs quote what had a lot of work well true that. It is flawed on so many levels. And auto maker oracle would be you know militias start with the basics. This. A year ago you're running for all are circulating around as the quote world war and he lied eastern wasn't true. So as a candidate he and his campaign structure can pop campaign at five lied about I know for a fact. But other than reality channel or. His campaign about it and busters vicious rumor true. Then it turns out it is true. And then when it can't stop and Tuesday. The reality thing he's eaten at a placing the public in the council to counsel. And he put it's. Really lane. Video neutrally worries cents. Iceland and improper text as a world war and that would merely improperly. You know he's like a religious invited the panel appear. Now that he's not speaking Canadians including its. Yeah it does this is beyond that so he's not dealing in reality and east on o'clock over. And that typical political typical politician. Not a response needs pacers. Try to minimize trivialize that this is not a trivial matter. You know people will forgive and understand. Behavior that. They understand it he got a DUY. It would serve our you know that can happen to anybody. You me anybody else is eating got to a squabble with the neighbor or crops. It was a well in. They had human Beers. And just had a bad day this is there haters so. Accurate so far beyond that. He's trying to reduce the private bank. Well it's not a private bankers. He has now been banished from Catholic schools and writer of school board meeting is expected to be emotion Wednesday. So what are welcome our public schools. Cannot imagine any booster club sort of around young people playgrounds. You know so where basically the job of Jefferson Parish president. Jefferson has. They stroll console we proper form of government the council most of our RD. So the president has largely based Mac and when your history and but nobody wants to see your pay anywhere. You cannot really effectively serve and when he couldn't go to the council meeting because it was. Likely can only guess so afraid of space and music how easily that you can actively serve is not. Dealing with reality and compared it. Two compared what we should expect in the next 34 years. Put him in Jefferson our students second term for Ray Nagin as mayor of the law which was a disaster. It was all the contentious as the oldest trust. Well gridlock. He might be able to cobble together for votes from his political of how. Our air carrier those. What council member some explaining to do what may have to run for reelection something else as Mike you know any votes on the arts council one. Voters of Serbs in Paris clearly do not tolerate this kind of behavior in the public potential. And they are I don't ones I'm sorry can't Clancy the before run at a time they are the only ones they can fire him. And that would mean what a recall effort and what is involved in that. Well the state look very clear to recall vote that it should not get one spurt of the registered voters in these. District in this case the Paris. To sign a potential back to bury our our. Recall that happened in Louisiana. About forty or so years ago the mayor of Latvia was recall. So it is a big parent so when the behaviors so regions sir you have here. And his break from reality trying to trivialize it. And pretend it didn't happen opportunity not a big deal which just a private matter you are out of my role as. This is so far the and inappropriate behavior it is grossly egregiously. Inappropriate. Topic of the sense of voter outrage could certainly be that a third of the voters which would be about. 90000. Verified signature. Petition to recall optic touch upon it could be met. Easy and it would be the product of terrorism a very serious effort to recall. Is he an accountant and attorney Dee you know. Armies of politicians are surely don't live there or are there is no advanced in Clancy is I just wonder if part of his strategy isn't. He and knowing he doesn't have anywhere else to go because I don't know who really would hire him to do what now. Well that's certainly. Reasonable. Piece of speculation. I think I think you need this job and consider that your guard people look darker light. He changes link to uniting the variety of which was as locker burdening. When he was caught it on his current focused on the job. Terms for the last twenty years. This is what he wants to do now they got the job and danger. It's like she's having some kind of break from reality. And you know what you gotta deal with reality. The proper the only real cure is sacred outage at it and her. Auckland. I started the whole business he was called up by the navy. The way I understand that it was a voluntary. Thing is he was asked economy didn't have to go on any U wecht and quickly came back and it's got this bunker mentality now and clearly he is not really facing. The voters artist fellow elected officials and then the Arctic air. The entire council has not been ordered to resign. Every every parish wide elected official except the district attorney who needs to stay. Because if terrorism and crime involving. There's not as laughter. But again every part one potential disaster and to resign. And when he made a statement yesterday to the media it was no walk into its car clearly didn't war of space traveler when he did. You made this statement. I think it is in my best interest to do the job I was elected to do really it was during his car venture. Are decked out you would expect any thinking about your interests not the interest of the Paris. And that's what got me to think that maybe he just needs job Clancy appreciate your time I really do an authority. Given Clancy do those that WL TV's political analyst. And co owner and political editor gambit and to a plan teaches said when he said this is best for me. That's what got me to think and warehousing and ago when LC to do we checked his bio I think he's of political science major. But I don't know if he's a lawyer not announcing anything along those lines done North Shore Mike yet they know. Hope you go. Out that sure she got. Pregnant and then. Current debate indeed. Oh. Bunny need to have the right under Covert to keep paying for it. By I don't know that that under him and and his saying that. You know you do limit but under the cobra acting do have a chance. To keep pain Floyd but you might be right in terms of navy's is wait until babies born. And numb and then you resign I don't know do you think he should resign. Adult they will work on 00. Or should it be determined. Respect that they get forced out quit political career out here cock all the pre. It. I again disagree with you done a thing is political careers over and I think. The reason he's doing his new yellow welcome Colin like to know what you think is because he got nowhere to go. He's got a wife that's pregnant. He has untouchable right now I don't know who would hire him out and maybe sell Samsung phones is they're pretty separate their pretty desperate at this point. Here's your Samsung phones or things are cumin and oh by the way don't use that I'm sorry don't use it slightly catch fire in your pocket. In Cabell thanks you have to realize this is the same. As being. The mayor the el Amin of new law once it's night and look enemy intimate and long ones involved in any of this but it is an equal position. As we talk about Mikey any and a text comes in and says well. Would we be having this same conversation. If it was a thirty year old woman and I think. It may be but not to the same extent and the reason for that is. Bomb this guy who was this kid was in high school. And his hat and keep in mind while Mike Kenney was the the mayor of Kenner not the parish president. But he was in high school so I think if you want to make a comparison as to whether or not it's a key thing. Would it have been any different if it was a seventeen year old girl that he had engaged in is an appropriate texting. Relationship where. John in Metairie good morning earn double WL. Enjoy it should thank our. Graduate as you question the outcome governor chain articulate but that was sort you'd fire yet. I don't think downplaying state law calls for that at all. Because they have already been politicians and have been convicted and still druthers salary. Because technically there's still in office while they're in jail. I think definitely need to grow up babies babies like. To go. Secret if it probably could it get the job with the clintons. Yeah McCain thank you John I'm glad you called T 601878740. I will say this. If you gonna tied in the presidential politics was Donald Trump's behavior. Or comments there were released on Friday a any worse then my Guinea's behavior. And if you're saying that. They're both reprehensible and yeah any needs to step down. Does the same apply for trump although the differences with trump. I don't think anyone has come forward and is actual proof in terms of evidence text messages etc. that'd captaincy 60187. Would you sign a recall petition. To get my Guinea on authors and should he resign have been butchering his name apparently I'm dyslexic and I'm beginning to think I might be a little ADHD is well. He is mother's maiden name was moan why not his father's name was moan why is mother's maiden name we inning. And I've been saying more Reno because I'm transposed in some letters there but it is moan boss. And a couple of text and in here and says come on Tommy viewing any kind of man you know would trump certain prided isn't even close it would most men say. When they are together that's called the presumptive close. So right away I have to agree with this guy I want to be any kind of man. Or woman locker room talk is usually worsening gonna compare that to a pedophile shame on you and another tax guns and does not taking up three any element in north short but you people do know that the legal age of consent. In Louisiana is seventeenth right well I think at 38 year old man gone after a seventeen year old boy who happens to be. You know the mayor Canner I guess someone highly ranked. Political. Operative Poland political officer holders. While I zany about front page but and you know the video was released of trump saying that he'd. You know would grab whatever and a woman. Filed a court suit against him in 1977. Alleging exactly that. Newsreader reporting that to deal hard the pageant owner. Said in an in 1990 business meaning Sheehan trump. Canada New York restaurant he allegedly reached under the table touch yours guys and grabbed her. Intimate private parts. And it's suit was filed. In the in 1997. She says it happened in 92 in this audio didn't break tilt. But Friday. And there was one other thing that I wanted to bring up and that is that I've been around a lot locker rooms. And the most disturbing thing I can think of was coming back from a scrimmage with Kennedy one whenever a big offensive tackles said. I would let her blank if I could blink. But I think the operative word there is yet is let rather I would let her not force myself on anybody. Atlanta Esther joins right now president of citizens for better candidate morning Ed. Thanks to take the time do you have any plans to initiate a recall attempt or as a I don't know how it works with incorporated and incorporated is a citizen of Kenner can you do that. I think anybody can initiate long. Are you happy get approval police. Say what you. Not difficult. But recall. Call and it that the state law requires many. Early just because it's hard is no reason not to do it right Ed. That's correct we believe that. There's rarely been an opportunity to recall. With as much should assess potential as a. So do you know and how you felt in and what you had to say before what is do you have any intentions. Of organizing putting together people I guess to go and and get people wanted to sign a petition. That we have to do. Will you that it do we use volunteer. Would rather Mike Bradley resign it was going to be pressing that bird. Are you. Are you in the process right now of putting together an organization. To. Get a recall effort underway. No look at and what would it take for you to do that. His failure to resign with them. I don't know we do not gonna wait that long problem within thirty days. I got to thank you Atlanta as a present the citizens. For a better Canner from Scott. Into Collins hi you're on WW good morning. Good value. Never random home yet and Ian will be years. Very. Did agree. Everything I didn't know well no you're an adult with. Didn't break any state law the FBI is. Looking into. Law that. Prohibits. The transfer of obscene material from an adult to somebody who is. I think seventeen is a threshold on that and it's a tough flawed approved because. The definition of obscenity is. He you know tough to have to that put into words. I'd play the thing is like. Why women are less urgency of people well not an. Archery. It's a jet generally speaking what do you think about. A 38 year old man that is the mayor of a municipality. Saying a kid wiley is at a high school function. And having a nineteen year old arrange for a meeting with his seventeen year old. And then allegedly. Meeting him at a mall saying icon to with your mouth full giving him designer underwear. Kissing him in the bathroom. At the mall and then sending him some other lewd texts about proposing. A group activity etc. do you think that. Goes. Into the values of whether you're Democrat or you Republican the way you carry yourself that. You should still be in politics that you should still be voted the because you know did that you should still hold office. Because you know if people had known this he would never been elect. Well you know there will you know while it. There. Viewed another Bill Clinton comparison thank you Scott yea got dead right bro I get a text that says the whole Clinton thing is tired move on please I said Nutten. The colors that are comparing my again Ada Bill Clinton or Hillary won him John de Saint Louis morning and other WL. You're up in Britain. But you do and is aiming Disney McDonald's I mean. Well I mean it wouldn't be here again people idiots. Our there. Yeah where rapid. Artillery. And talk about it. Jobless and there were market. Now that they pick up the Clinton went in but what you were talking about it. It. McKay well thank you John I appreciated it just for the record the only thing Donald Trump said about his daughter when talking to. Howard Stern was that he could referred her as a piece of a and any gotten to a discussion and discussion about whether her breasts were implants. Or not I found it terribly disrespectful to his daughter a as a father and secondly. To reduce by all accounts what is a brilliant young woman to. Did just that Politico John have a good day will be back.
