HARASSMENT VICTIM SILENCING
Last summer, while John Bel Edwards was threatening to throw seniors out of nursing homes and cancel LSU Football because of the “fiscal cliff”, the State of Louisiana was forced to spend over $100,000 of taxpayer money to settle a sexual harassment suit against his deputy chief of staff.
Most disturbingly, John Bel Edwards, his deputy chief of staff and their attorneys attempted to silence the victim.
According to a report from NOLA.com, as part of the settlement, the woman, Anderson and the Governor’s office cannot make "disparaging remarks" about one another.
Why did John Bel Edwards ever hire Johnny Anderson as deputy chief of staff, after Anderson had previously faced claims of sexual harassment when he worked for Governor Kathleen Blanco more than a decade ago?
