This is an obvious ploy by the lege to return white govt. to NO.

Former New Orleans Mayor Marc Morial strongly denounced the Louisiana Legislature for failing to approve a bill that would allow displaced city residents to cast their votes at satellite polling places around the state in the April 22 election.

The failure of the bill caused a walkout of the Legislative Black Caucus Monday.

A similar bill pushed by Governor Kathleen Blanco narrowly passed a House committee Tuesday but was expected to face an uphill battle in the full House, which already rejected the first proposal.

“If an Iraqi in Houston can vote in an election in Baghdad, then certainly somebody in Baton Rouge ought to be able to vote in an election in New Orleans,” said Morial.

Exactly. Democracy in Iraq, but not in NO?!
