Good to know that a little water hasn’t dampened New Orleans’s taste for bizarre politics. First comes my friend Jason Perlow running into Mayor Ray Nagin waiting tables. (Check out the rest of his excellent food blog, too.
Then comes Kimberly Williamson Butler, the clerk of the criminal court and a N.O. resident since just 1999, who announced her candidacy on the steps of the courthouse after surrendering for ignoring a string of court orders. Oh, yes — it appears that her campaign Web site has a pic of the candidate superimposed not on an actual New Orleans scene, but on Disneyland’s New Orleans Square.
It would be all the more entertaining if the election weren’t so critical for the city’s future.
