TONIGHT: Louisiana Federation of Republican Women Host Debate: Rob Maness Accepts, Bill Cassidy Ducks

MADISONVILLE, LA - Tonight, the Louisiana Federation of Republican Women will be hosting what should have been a forum, but as a result of Congressman Bill Cassidy's refusal to show-up, is now a symposium featuring conservative U.S. Senate candidate Col. Rob Maness (USAF, ret.). 

"Tonight, I'll be attending the LFRW Region 1 Republican Symposium in Kenner - the third of 14 forums and debates I've accepted," Maness said.  "The women of the LFRW deserve to hear directly from the candidates asking them for their vote in November.  To date, I've accepted 14 invitations to participate in debates and forums to Sen. Landrieu's 5 and Congressman Cassidy's 1.  It makes you wonder why they're so afraid to accept these invitations from Louisiana voters who want to hear from them about the issues."

Upcoming debates-forums: 

  1. September 2nd - Louisiana Federation of Republican Women Candidate Forum
  2. September 18th - The Bayou Teche Republican Women's Club Debate

Maness Drafts Objections to Landrieu's Candidacy for District Attorney

Says "her periodic trips to Louisiana are the visits of a political tourist, not a true resident"

MADISONVILLE, LA - Col. Rob Maness (USAF, ret.), the conservative, non-politician running for U.S. Senate to advance liberty, prosperity, and certainty, has submitted new information to the East Baton Rouge District Attorney concerning the real residency of Sen. Mary Landrieu.

"The Complaint I filed on Friday contains a wealth of facts demonstrating Landrieu's apparent intent to establish Washington, D.C., rather than Louisiana, as her home," Maness wrote.  "The people of this State are entitled to have this issue publicly aired out in an impartial forum."

To that end, Maness submitted two documents to East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore:

  • A Letter showing that the deadline for Moore to file an objection to Landrieu's candidacy is noon on today, September 2, and reasserting the evidence that warrants Moore's objection; and
  • A draft Petition for Moore to expeditiously object to Landrieu's candidacy for failing to meet the qualifications of a Senate candidate and for failing to properly qualify as a candidate for Senate.

Maness said that he believes its important for a disinterested public official like Moore to ensure that Landrieu "not be permitted to stand for election if she does not meet even the minimum statutory requirements for holding office."

Maness also cited the case of Yolanda King, a judge from Orleans Parish presently being prosecuted for two felony charges based on concerns related to the home she claimed on her statement of candidacy.

"I believe that the law should be applied evenhandedly to all people, regardless of power, connections, or clout," Maness wrote.  "It would be disturbing for one elected official to be prosecuted based on her statement of candidacy, while ignoring mounting evidence that undermines similar claims by another."

Maness first raised concerns about Senator Landrieu's residency on August 22 by submitting a letter to the Secretary of State with significant evidence showing that Senator Landrieu moved to and resides in Washington, D.C.

Then, on August 29, Maness filed complaints with the District Attorneys of East Baton Rouge, Orleans, St. Tammany, and Ouachita Parishes.
