What are you waiting for Jeff?

If the Attorney general is to be consistent, a lawsuit against President Trump is forthcoming.

BATON ROUGE – Late yesterday the White House issued a statement that President Trump will leave in place President Obama’s 2014 executive order.  That E.O. is nearly identical in its intent to the one Governor John Bel Edwards issued last year giving workplace protections to the LGBTQ community.  In both Executive Orders there are broad protections from workplace discrimination in government jobs as well as those who wish to contract with the Government.  The order by Governor John Bel Edwards has drawn the contempt of A.G. Landry so much so that it is currently being litigated.

Stephen Handwerk, Executive Director of the Louisiana Democratic Party issued the following statement: 

“I have a simple question for the Attorney General – when should we expect your lawsuit against President Trump?”
