Update Again: Saturday’s New Orleans GOP Beatdown Update – April 17, 2010, Saturday.
This story continues to develop as more information eeks out through limited sources. The “mainstream media” is not covering it — yahoo.com is running a story at present but there’s not too much more — and what information is available is coming from slowly-issued public statements by the victims and/or their relatives, and by a local media source (The Hayride) that’s provided the most information, including a New Orleans law enforcement report copy.
The grim news is that the physical assault upon these two people — GOP employee (a fundraiser for Republican LA Governor Bobby Jindal) Allee Bautsch and (her boyfriend) Joe Brown — was politically motivated (read the articles linked below for explanations of that).
