Sangisetty: “Landry’s Cocaine Bust: Corruption or Incompetence?”

October 11, 2010

“We need to send honorable leaders, new blood, to make Washington work for us."

HOUMA, La. — Ravi Sangisetty, Democratic nominee for Congress in Louisiana’s Third District, said the 3rd District needs new leadership, not political insiders, to fix a broken Washington.

“Too often, we’ve sent insiders to Washington who only work for themselves,” Sangisetty said. “We need to send honorable leaders, new blood, to make Washington work for us.”

Sangisetty for Congress Campaign Manager Julienne Uhlich said corruption follows Jeff Landry. She said Landry ran a disgraceful campaign against a good man like Hunt Downer, and Landry now has questions to answer about his involvement in a cocaine bust.

“Here’s what we know: While Jeff Landry was employed as a sheriff’s deputy, $10,000 worth of cocaine was stolen from the sheriff’s evidence room and found under his house. His roommate, also a sheriff’s deputy, was arrested for it and went to jail. Landry turned in his badge within months,” Uhlich said. “There are only two explanations. Either Jeff Landry was a dirty cop and knew about the drugs, or he was the worst cop ever and couldn’t figure out that $10,000 worth of cocaine was being sold out of his house.”
