Eddie Rispone will be flying into Million Air Alexandria on Friday, 11/15, for a lunchtime visit, as he continues campaigning around the state. Please make an effort to attend at 11:45 and invite others the hear from Eddie before the push towards the election on Saturday. The numbers are close and we need each and every person to reach out, come out and bring out every vote we can for Eddie. We have a Super Majority in the Senate and we should one in the House after Saturday. So we need a conservative Governor to work with the Legislature to turn Louisiana around.

I’ll see y’all Friday at Million Air Alexandria! And let’s get out the vote!!!

Friends,

Right now, the future of Louisiana is in our hands - that's why it is incredibly important for conservatives to help push Eddie Rispone across the finish line! We need YOUR help.

This Saturday, Republicans are rallying at LAGOP offices throughout Louisiana to knock on doors, make phone calls, and talk with voters to make sure we elect Eddie Rispone as our next Governor so that he can do for Louisiana what President Trump has done for America!

This is our LAST volunteer weekend before election day. We’re meeting up for coffee and donuts and then heading out to knock doors and talk to voters.

We need you, your friends and family to join us at the LAGOP office locations closest to you on Saturday. Will you show up?

We will be out in communities across Louisiana to talk with voters every day between now and the election, but SATURDAY is the day for our big push. There will also be plenty of refreshments to fuel our efforts. There are lots of ways to help out - come and see what works best for you!

Fact Checking Eddie Rispone’s Attack Ad on Ralph Abraham RISPONE’S ACCUSATION: Ralph Abraham said he would donate his congressional salary to charity, but he lied, and bought himself a new airplane instead. (Citation used: The News Star, June 20, 2017).
THE TRUTH: False AND intentionally misleading. 1.) After his election to Congress, House Ethics ruled that Abraham could no longer receive private income as a part-time practicing physician. Despite this ruling, Ralph Abraham nonetheless DID donate his salary to charity in his first term of Congress. He and his wife have continued to give hundreds of thousands of dollars to charity each year. 2.) The article Rispone cites actually references an airplane that Ralph Abraham owned well before running for public office, purchased in 2013. Ralph Abraham sold that plane in 2017, and used said proceeds to purchase a plane virtually identical to the one he previously owned.
RISPONE’S ACCUSATION: Ralph Abraham (missed more votes) than any Congressman in America.
(Citation used: 9/2/19 Pro-Publica)
THE TRUTH: Rispone’s attack on Abraham’s attendance record is intentionally misleading. It does not specify the time period this statistic is selectively referencing. In the 114 th Congress (2015-16) for example, Abraham missed only 2 votes out of 1,325 (0.15%). In the 115 th Congress (2016-18), Abraham missed only 18 votes out of 1,210 (1.49%).
*For historical context, Louisiana is one of a very small number of states (1 of 5) who hold their Gubernatorial Elections in an off-year cycle, relative to congressional election cycles. In the competitive 1987 Louisiana Gubernatorial Campaign, three U.S. Representatives ran for Governor: Note their attendance records over the same period. In the 1987 Gubernatorial Campaign:
U.S. Rep. Buddy Roemer missed 60.12% of votes between 01/01/87 – 09/30/87.
U.S. Rep. Bob Livingston missed 46.73% of votes between 01/01/87 – 09/30/87.
U.S. Rep. Billy Tauzin missed 57.32% of votes between 01/01/87 – 09/30/87.
In the 2019 Gubernatorial Campaign:
U.S. Rep. Ralph Abraham missed 43.40% of votes between 01/01/19 – 09/17/19.
RISPONE’S ACCUSATION: Ralph Abraham Called on President Trump To Step Down.
(Citation used: 10/08/16 The Advocate)
THE TRUTH: This statement is FALSE, and INTENTIONALLY misleading.
● Abraham praised Trump as a candidate for President more than a year before the election.
Abraham Credits Trump with casting light on issues. Daily World, Opelousas, LA. 21 Aug 2015, Fri,
● Abraham was arguably the most outspoken member of the LA Delegation in support of Candidate
Trump and among the first to endorse his campaign in Louisiana. GOP delegation begins rallying
To Trump. The Town Talk, Alexandria, Louisiana. 08 May 2016, Sun. Page A3 .
● Abraham did express serious concerns immediately following the lewd comments on the Access
Hollywood tape involving Billy Bush. Abraham has since stated the following: “President Trump used a poor choice of words, and so did I. The facts remain however that I continued to strongly support then candidate Trump, and since his election to the White House I’ve been one of his most
loyal and supportive allies in Congress.”
RISPONE’S ACCUSATION: Ralph Abraham Joined Nancy Pelosi To Oppose a Border Wall. (Citation Used: HR 1625, March 22, 2018. HR 1636, June 27, 2018.)
THE TRUTH: 100% FALSE. Rispone’s attack uses two instruments of legislation as a reference. Abraham
voted NO on the first referenced piece of legislation because it fell far short of the President’s request for border wall funding, and he voted NO on the second instrument reference because it would have granted AMNESTY to illegal aliens.
1.) Abraham voted NO on HR 1625 (2018 Omnibus), and was joined by Rep. Mike Johnson, Rep. Clay Higgins,
Rep. Garret Graves in voting NO. Rep. Nancy Pelosi voted YES. This bill only included $1.6 billion for the border wall,
much less than the $25 billion requested by the President. He said the following after voting against this bill. "This 2,200 page omnibus dropped less than a day before we voted on it, and no one could possibly have read it all in that amount of time. I do know enough to see that it breaks the budget compromise we struck last month by tacking on billions in extra spending on pet projects, rather than focusing on the money our military and border security need. Dropping a $1.3 trillion spending bill - one that breaks a deal we struck just last month - hours before it needs to pass is an irresponsible way to govern, and that’s why I voted against it," Dr.
Abraham said
2.) Abraham voted NO on HR 6136 (Border Security and Immigration Reform Act of 2018) in the 115th Congress,
because it would have granted AMNESTY to illegal aliens. Abraham was joined in voting NO by Rep. Mike Johnson
and Rep. Garret Graves. The bill ultimately failed. He issued the following statement after the vote. "My constituents
have made it very clear to me that they do not want amnesty for illegal immigrants, and my vote today against
the immigration bill reflected my commitment to them that I will never support amnesty. While the bill
included some good things, it went too far in granting amnesty for about 2 million people who came into this
country illegally," Dr. Abraham said. In the previous week, Dr. Abraham voted in FAVOR of the Goodlatte-McCaul immigration reform bill, but it did not garner enough votes for passage. Dr. Abraham was a cosponsor of that bill.
"I believe the House should focus on winning over enough votes to pass the original Goodlatte-McCaul bill that accomplished everything that we as conservatives want: building a border wall, cracking down on sanctuary cities, ending the visa lottery system, and stopping chain migration," Dr. Abraham said.
RISPONE’S ACCUSATION: Ralph Abraham Voted with Nancy Pelosi Over 300 Times.
THE TRUTH: Completely Misleading and Disingenuous. In the 114 th Congress, there were 1,200 votes,
and the votes RISPONE references were all bi-partisan or minor issues such as the naming of Post
Offices. Pelosi agreed with Abraham on these bi-partisan bills 290 times. For comparison, Pelosi agreed
with Rep. Garret Graves 290 times, and Rep. Steve Scalise 284 times. In the 115 th Congress, out of 1061
votes cast, Pelosi and Abraham agreed on 327 votes. For comparison, Pelosi agreed with Rep. Mike
Johnson 323 times, Rep. Garret Graves 317 times, Rep. Clay Higgins 321 times, and she voted with Rep.
Steve Scalise, who was forced to miss votes due to hospitalization following his tragic shooting, 263 times

The only person that's a bigger slimeball than Jerry Springer is facing charges for bank fraud and extortion.

Looks like the scales of justice are tipping back to the right side.

Earlier Monday, Avenatti tweeted that he would be holding a press conference Tuesday "to disclose a major high school/college basketball scandal perpetrated by @Nike that we have uncovered."

Today it was found that a corrupt democrat was found barred from taking office after he tried to run as Mayor of Ball, LA and was convinced he was grandfathered in due to Amendment 1 being passed when he won election. Mr. Hebron plead guilty to a felony in which he defrauded FEMA for more than $300,000.

#BREAKING Judge Monique Rauls of the 9th Judicial District Court in Rapides Parish ruled on Friday that convicted felon and former mayor of the Town of Ball, Roy Hebron, cannot hold office. This, after Hebron won overwhelmingly in the November election to be re-elected as the town's mayor. But, it's not over, Hebron's attorney, Charles Elliott plans to file an emergency writ with the Third Circuit to appeal.

17 years ago on this day a terrible tragedy hit our shores. America suffered its first major attack on American soil in many, many years. Many lives were lost and to this day countless others have been affected. America united and the days after started the punishment on those responsible. The RRPEC want to take a moment of silence to remember all of those who gave their lives after and lost their lives during this tragedy. We hope America never has to go through this again! But if it does, let our enemies know that we will strike back harder and faster!
