Now with more WWL. First news here's Dave Cohen on WW well AM at them and dot com nine minutes after 5 AM it's the early edition of WWL first news on this thirteenth of October 2016. Chris Miller look at that it's the date before Friday Friday eve yes it is and happy Friday eve two ball. Friday that is an ice who celebrated twice here in the early edition of WW well first news Friday eve so after bed tonight Friday clause will lose it all the good workers around the Euro world in. Give them what the weekend I guess that and I guess that would be like Christmas clause. I had a commitment that most stubborn like that idea Friday clause like it is Friday gift giving that be fine with me. I would love to get Friday give it your gift it is two days off yes a cast while looking forward to. Friday Claus coming around and delivering news Friday guess I am sure that you'll see that that actually happens. Is this a now you teased so. Effectively. Days will become very important as the countdown has begun. In the effort to get the required number of signatures. On a petition. To put a recall on the ballot in Jefferson putters prepared president might Yemeni. Battery attorney has officially filed at work as of yesterday. To try and get that recall on the ballot passed yet 13 of registered voters in Jefferson Parish. To physically sign. A piece of paper. They must be registered voters and they must sign that paper the same way their name appears on their voter registration. So this is not a simple task. Yeah if you go by Billy gym but Euro and the she is William James you gotta sign it that way right Horry you have your middle initial on your voter registration you have to sign the petition with your middle initial. I suppose so a people who've had name changes through Marysville that it subsequently changed it's a if there's been a divorce or for your single when you register but it since got Mary but I haven't re registered gonna have to remember that too yet. So it's not going to be simple to get 13. Of all the registered voters and out people who live in Jefferson Parish who have not registered to vote. They can't sign the petition. So I'm wondering if we're gonna get a surge in voter registration. In Jefferson Parish are people who. Want to sign the petition to recall parish president Mike Danny but we're not registered voters that's going to be interesting to me. And to get the required number of signatures in it's going to be I was talking with the secretary of state town Kevin yesterday. Jazeera tells you'll get ten to 15% more than you need. Because some of them are going to be thrown out because people signed differently. Than their actual name some people who sign it won't actually be registered voters are some people sign it would joked names. Yet I he for real leader. And that Mickey Mouse there. Whatever the case may be but six months. Mark technically 180 days which is not exactly. There. But 180. Days the petitioner now has to get the whose signatures. On the hate poor you can't send demand via email or text or social media or anything like that. They actually have to be signatures on a piece of paper. And I think that's interesting. I wonder if lawmakers will revisit. That law promise the people who potentially could be recalled that one's gonna have to approve changing the law on how to recalls somebody. That makes me wonder if they will you know. So I remember in the mid 2000 slow one lawmaker had the idea of making it the percentage of the people actually voted in that election. That put whoever was the target of the recall an office cause of only half the registered voters cast ballots. Instead of needing a third of all of the registered dealers just a third of those who actually cast those. Yes but the rest of the legislature looked at that said no we don't thinks ago. And let's not make it easier to get us kicked out. Office right he had I think most lawmakers and the governor would have to sign it are probably a little hesitant to make it easier to remove them. So according to Tom Schadler. 33 and a 3%. That 261060. Registered voters. Means that they need 87022. Signatures. On paper as they appear on people's voter registration. In order to get a recall. Jefferson Parish president Mike Kenny on the ballot. And then the governor would have fifteen days to actually call that election. If and when those signatures are certified so right now weren't October 13 to begin act over closer to November December January February march April. They've got till April mid April to get all those signatures that it would be essentially. May. But time itself certified and if it's approved that the governor would actually say win the election would be. It could be a special election could be tacked on another existing elections so so those things June. Probably is when we could see in my Kenny recall on the ballot and it's curious to me. Is no better. Anger and frustration. And outrage that we've been seeing. Against any sense he admitted sending in a. To see if people are still that angry about this. Too. Now I get on the ballot but to go. To the polls if he gets on the ground and ornament. A long time from. Things have a way of dying dance. I don't know if this well enough. People will remain as angry as they hour. We shall see if people remain hot about this. Think there. Do you think. There's enough that we are one elected official after another. After another after another after another condemning inning tying him to resign banning him from school campuses and so on. So we shall see thank you Chris will talk to you in less than. When he met two more first news here on WWL I am FM and a couple XX 887870. Think big kick Indiana office. Targeted don't a lot of signatures. A lot of times. It's happened before that Jefferson Parish through with elective officials in the state there have been some successfully recalled. Time will now let's take a look at your forecast.

Well the truth of the matter is that in Louisiana the age of consent is seventeen. Years old so. The chance which was apparently consensual according to the team in the bathroom when he any gave him some underwear. Was not a crime in Louisiana because the seventeen. Age of consent how ever there is a federal law. That bands obscene communication. From an adult would anyone under eighteen. So theoretically. Yani could be charged. With illegal. Electronic communications with a minor under federal law it's not clear though. If the FBI exactly pursuing a case under those charges. Eyewitness News reported that they did indeed open a case and there is an FBI investigation. But I'll count it doesn't seem like that investigation is terribly. Active. The gallery is here with WWL. Sports happy Friday. ESP. Thanks Dave good morning everybody the three and two LSU football team has been constantly asked about their postponed game against Florida but the players say they're focus is for into southern miss. Meanwhile it'll make coach at notre knows his tiger team. Is going to be play with a little extra motivation this Saturday. Company there ever a business over until I agree that we did play last week multiple arsenal hosts. The other saints and Panthers are both desperate teams searching for win number two on the year for the latest on that match up here sideline reporter Kristian garic. Even though the Panthers are one in four and don't have the defense they had a year ago saints quarterback Drew Brees still has plenty of respect for that some of the football and that Panthers the. Of those coaches have been there now since 2011 so. I think being divisional opponent you know in place each other twice a year. You know there's always going to be about. Over to the other quarterback talk about cam do know the Carolina Panthers he was limited in practice yesterday coming off a concussion he suffered in week four causing him to miss last week's contest against Tampa Bay Buccaneers he's expected play on Sunday Kristian garic WWL sports and other NFL news quarterback Carson Palmer's practicing again with the cardinals after sitting out a game with a particular a concussion. Field back at the controls when the team hosts the jets on Monday night. Washington coach Jay gruden says that tight end Jordan reed reporting Kosher concussion like symptoms yesterday. That could keep the team's top offensive weapon from playing Sunday against Philadelphia. Thursday night football comes to us from San Diego was the one of fort chargers host the four and one Broncos.

Five point five Dave don't Steve Geller with you on your radio does it matter. Who is at running back for LSU. On Saturday that the tigers are 825. Point favorite at home. Of over southern Mississippi. In the game on Saturday night into Tuesday. Yeah I think we saw the LSU offense had no problem not obviously last week but the week before. Against Missouri without winner foreign net and at a drug basically saying. He's gonna play the running back until he's 100%. And it seems like that ankle injury is a little more serious than originally expected. Because oh draw also admitted that it's taking longer than expected to get back on the field so. I'm gonna guess I'm just guessing that that ankles going to be bothering him and sells Saturday November if there. I think he might be back even floor next week's game against Ole miss but I guess we'll city man. I don't expect this appointment and sell the Alabama to assure hopes and has guys got to protect himself he's going to be a very high draft pick. In just a few months. And I think that they're being Smart if they don't need him to play in these games that there are huge favorites doesn't make sense to play him don't jeopardize his future. When it's not necessary yet that that Alabama game means so much just because this team has not. Beaten them the last five years and they shot his huge for days got his run down last year rights you know he's got something yankees definitely wants to go back and actually. Getting some yardage on the Crimson Tide because he had that element time Russian ball when they play last year. Thank you Steve we'll let you grab the ball and run with it again and 25 minutes and more sports here on WWL IAM a famine dot com and I commendable talk about the hottest of the hot peppers. How that's hot. And I'll tell you why I think monkey any is not resigning with the early edition WWL first news on this the thirteenth of October 2016. Happy Friday eve do you and yours and not a date for Friday and we felt celebrated appropriately here on the early edition by recognizing the significance of Friday he. All this talk about my. The parish president Jefferson. Who admitted to sending inappropriate text seventeen year old after the seventeen year old posted a law in which he said. He uses enamored with Gianni he loved the fact that the as a married man with. Baby was interested in him so much that he was willing to. Break his marital vows. To begin a relationship with the team. Yeah any admits to sending inappropriate text messages that team. The seventeen year old set of his epilogue that Yani kissed him in a public bathroom after giving him designer underwear. But later became we are you of any text messages and blocked him particularly after Yani invited him to groups sex with another team. All of this has led to now an official recall effort and Kenny who again has said he is not going to resign despite more and more. Public officials calling for him to quit. But he says he will buy abide by the will of the people. Not that you have a choice by. That's when he says he would do if he is and he recalled. Could get on the ballot the erratically around me June or July. Depending on how long it takes to gather signatures they can get that. Lot of people and asking why in the world doesn't this guy resign. Lot of people ask me that you know you get the entire council the share of this city councils of the cities within the municipalities of Jefferson all of this outrage so many people on him to quit. He says now I'm not. And the more I think about it. And listen to the infomercial that he. Broadcast. As his first public statement about this. I really believe that the reason Mike Kenny is refusing to quit is because he's got. Family to provide for his wife and daughter another baby on the way. And I don't think anyone's gonna hire him to do anything. If he quits his job Mr. President I don't think he's employable right now. In any way shape or form to get nearly as much money he's making as president to support his fame. And on that level. Mechanic and I kind of get wide. He is inclined to keep the job he has because his prospects for future employment are DM. Their dismal. Because. Each unit in Egypt lobbyists he can't be count is now lawyer evening he just there's there's nothing. Potentially that makes him a lot of money to provide for his family on that level I get it. It's gonna suck for him to be paired president. It's going to be an awful job. For as long as he's got it may be three years maybe less of these recalled. By. Make as much money he can now look at the economic goal while letters though I get that on the level of a got to provide for your family. Are you look at the odds are also really in his favor he can't be forced out by any of the other government bodies of Jefferson Parish. He has not as yet been charged with a crime. The other could still happen but he hasn't yet. So. The only way to remove him from office prior to the next election. Is the recall petition and as we've been over that is a daunting challenge maybe not impossible but it's a high of Barr the clear. Yet so I think in terms. Hey he's got to do what is best for his family. I get is that what's best for the people of Jefferson Parish. I don't. Think that that have trio pretty strong argument to say that it is but you're right when you look at that as earnings potential. And his potential to stay in office he does a pretty good odds to keep his job and keep making money until the next election because it is hard to do it may happen it may not. So that level I get and I think that it is gonna he's going to be miserable in his job it's not going to be any fun for anybody I think it's ultimately bad for the pair solve this that's going on. But hey I think prime only and fundamentally a guy's got to provide it. For his family and on that level nine again here's something I don't. This guy from Louisiana who is developing the hottest. Pepper. Am over this story has been going crazy on our website at being shared everywhere and people are just fascinated. By this man from Lafayette Troy prima. Who has come up what what he believes is the hottest hot pepper ever gong at the Louisiana Krieger and when we asked him how hot it was. He says it's so hot that when people taste it. Quote it melts their face off. No that's not look at the end of raiders of the lost or now and that's not literal. But apparently. Just one little. Teeny spec of this pepper. Will such her mouth on fire and he admits if you need any more than that you're going to be very unhappy when it clears your dentist. So. I don't know why people are so fascinated I like hot that. Guy like hot songs I like hot peppers I likes IDs and flavor. And I like an all kinds of ways and now night. Hi ha I like Louisiana hot ion line a Asian economies doesn't. I like ha I like spicy.

On cinco de Meyer election people do tea hot pepper eating contest recently. And hotter than a guy and the more miserable these people got I just kept wondering line.

From the ten point forecasts and we're talking about the hottest hot pepper ever. The Louisiana could reproduce guys trying to get it certified I in the Guinness book apparently as the hottest hot pepper in the history of hot peppers. Right primo from Lafayette Louisiana aces so hot and amount your face I said Damon and you can't just had tried taste of this which you do it there. If we didn't think about it. My dad. He is who loves spikes he probably would do it like if you want he'd taken apart Tabasco sauce on top. Just make you. Now yadda and I'll read you this one airline apparently it is believed the misery. In the pockets of LO. You can now I think he would yet. It's not get guy you're not there aren't that dot. I that you then I would either for the record Chris Miller said he would tasted. To amass carelessness that to sedate than it everywhere you taste the Louisiana reaper of the hottest hot pepper ever. If you had a chance to Dave's they'd know Chris as yet thinks that. They've just monitor from the pinpoint forecast and I'm very few people say they would taste not as hot pepper ever one person says Dave I would not even be in the same wrote that tapper. Those as I would not days the hottest hot pepper ever Darwin and his own gas survival of the that if the president does does why. I knee Yan and I don't know I didn't know its members sports that was Steve you know. You gave the warning everyone southern miss Lopez VLSU defense this Saturday at Tiger Stadium as the Golden Eagles spread offense. Averages 531 yards and forty points for college next. By you bagels interim head coach I don't draw on those says that US does have a huge win this weakness that they will look to take advantage of. That they don't those hurt bill bit by Odyssey to the internal operational. Yet though we need to explored they would need to take care of the ball with the typical after a quote defense when they get the ball away when these schools was school or during gulf. That's the saints are back in the superdome this Sunday following their bye week ties to check you would sideline reporter Christie Garrett for looks like colts matchup with Carolina. What to make of that once thought that Carolina Panthers defense without Josh Norman they're not playing very well given my body yards in the passing game off to a one in four start saints quarterback Drew Brees says yet don't what the numbers fool you with that can't Thursday. As I analyze and you know and from what I'm looking after the people's perspective. I think here there's your analysis is as they've been. For the saints on the injury front linebackers and LL be left tackle to run Armstead along with cornerback Dell will grow and defensive end Paul Kruger all sitting out of practice yesterday. Kristian garic DeVito who else. Ward solar was a familiar face Beckett panthers' practice coach Ron Rivera said they can't get took reps with the first team offense after missing Monday night's game against Tampa Bay would get took a concussion. News out there as part of the protocol business depart where you gotta go work and our values but it looked good through ball pretty doggone well you know it was a volatile place that we had we had scripted forum running back Jonathan Stewart also practiced for Carolina after missing the last three games with a hamstring injury. I took it Thursday night football the charges throughout the snap a three game losing skid but must take on the defending Super Bowl champs. The fourth when Denver Broncos will have quarterback Trevor city back under center. He was dealing with a sprained throwing shoulder kicked off on three W thirteen 50 AM it's 730. They want WWL. Six players show. Join Deke Bellavia at hooters in battery which special guest quarterback can crawl will also get the view from big it's for this weekend's best bets in college in the NFL. It's a fantasy football preview. I'm Steve Geller with early morning at four. Saddam look on at the view from Vegas right now on the IA Carolina New Orleans game they have finally started taking bets on the game at some casinos not all after Cam Newton practiced. To some extent yesterday. And with it looking like Newton is likely to play Sunday in the superdome against the saints the Panthers up and up as a three point favorite on the road here in new war. Yet the saints' success at home has been really dismal when I think they've lost eleven of the last fifteen home games right now. Which out yet that's hard to evens out. A home and the last that we were swept last year by Carolina. And have lost the last three actually compare their so on it's always a tight game in the NFC south when these divisional games happen. And I'm hoping to see more guys come back healthy for this team. Of for the seats right now but still banged up. And I'll Ellerbe. A guy that has been missing so much from this team but as a key factor if he can return this week I might have a little more. Hope for this team the states in the superdome on Sunday but right now. I'm still on the Carolina site especially camp content. Seating maybe Macon that is three point favorite makes sense of Iowa the overwhelming majority of people have no interest in tasting the hottest hot pepper ever though Louisiana. Reaper. But they are fascinated with the reading about it and one guys says if you go to YouTube and look up a video of it they show a guy eating three hole Louisiana keepers and downing a fifth of fireball. All my god I've been about four hours later he was the unhappy as man ever. In the world have a great Friday even I can't wait to see what Friday Claus brings me Chris Miller has presidents are coming.
