The re-election campaign for U.S. Senator Mary L. Landrieu, D-La., today responded to another baseless attack from the John Neely Kennedy campaign accusing the senior senator of being against an earmark reform bill in the Louisiana House of Representatives.
Landrieu campaign spokesman Scott Schneider said:
"The Kennedy campaign is confused again. We did not attack John Kennedy for supporting earmark legislation. We attacked him for killing earmark legislation. While Sen. Landrieu has been effective in bringing transparency to the earmark process in Washington, John Kennedy has been responsible for stalling reform in Louisiana. Now he wants to go to the Senate where he can damage more legislation crucial to the future of Louisiana.
"John Kennedy was for earmarks before he was against them. When he wasn't running for the Senate, he approved $325 million in spending for nongovernmental organizations, but now he's suddenly opposed to all earmarks. How can Louisianians trust a man who has no idea what he's for?"
