Is ‘Adieu, Baton Rouge,’ and ‘Bonjour, D.C.’ for JBE?


Is ‘Adieu, Baton Rouge,’ and ‘Bonjour, D.C.’ for JBE?


Whether it’s the heat generated by the Ronald Greene murder and the subsequent coverup or just the possibility of an ambitious career move, word is Gov. John Bel Edwards may be about to hit the bricks for D.C.

LouisianaVoice has picked up on a fairly strong report that Edwards will be meeting with his cabinet members next week to announce he’ll be taking a position in the Biden administration, most probably in the Energy Department, currently headed by Secretary Jennifer Granholm, like Edwards, a former governor. She was the frst woman elected governor of Michigan, serving two terms from 2003 to 2011.

Rumors have been circulating of late that Edwards was considering a position in Washington and those reports have intensified with the growing questions about his knowledge of details of Greene’s beating death at the hands of State Troopers on May 10, 2019 and the subsequent claims that Greene died as the result of an auto accident at the end of a lengthy police chase through two north Louisiana parishes.

As Louisiana State Police stuck to their story for some 16 months, Trooper John Clary continued to claim there was no body cam footage of the incident. That claim turned out to be a lie when the body cam footage surfaced around September 2020, only about three months after LSP cellphones were wiped clean.

Greene’s death has resulted in the resignations of at least four high-ranking LSP officials and sparked calls for others as more details continue to emerge.

Edwards was reelected after a hard-fought campaign in 2019 and has nearly two years left in his current term.
