Mayoral frontrunner Mitch Landrieu targeted by rivals in televised forum
Perhaps the night's most shocking moments came as candidates responded to the question about how they would heal New Orleans' long-standing racial divide.
"There's a bigger issue out here, and it has to do with Mr. Georges," Couhig said. "I was so disappointed today when I was presented with evidence that an organization he ran had people in blackface, parading around. I mean, how can you be mayor if you condone that in an organization that you were the president of?"
Couhig referred to allegations posted this week at the Web site of a local blogger connecting Georges with a controversial Tulane University fraternity.
Georges denied participating in racist activities: "You know, you don't respond to blogs. It's not true. Those are all misrepresentations. I never condoned such, and it's just last-minute political tactics."
They just can't bring themselves to do it can they?
But seriously, I want to know what's not true, Mr. Georges.
I guess you think blogs are beneath you...you know the average guy asking you to take responsibility. You want to lead an entire city into the future but you can't take responsibility for your own past....amazing.
I guess you can go ahead and try to chalk it up as the privilege of youth. The rest of us now know the truth... you were a youth of privilege who never learned to take responsibility for your own actions.
