The New Orleans Times-Picayune has issued a "Corrections and Clarifications" after failing to include information about David Kent's Campaign. Here is what the Times-Picayune wrote:

"Candidate views omitted:

One of 11 candidates for clerk of Orleans Parish Criminal District Court, David R. Kent was included in a story in Saturday's editions about the race, but his philosophy and platform were inadvertently omitted. Here they are:

--He wants to revamp the office evidence room to eliminate theft by monitoring it with closed-circuit TV and allowing only employees with card-keys access to the room.

--He wants to work with the judges, the sheriff and other users of the Criminal Courts building to tighten up security, both inside and around the building.

--He promises to "bring the experience, maturity, some institutional memory and a lot of practical skills to the job." He calls himself a "victim's advocate -- a passionate one."

--He will urge political party organizations to encourage voters to register in their proper domicile." [ LINK ]

What can possibly be more important to the foundation of our precious liberties than fair trials and honest elections? Well, thanks to the actions of our incumbent Clerk of Criminal Court, we now know how important this job is to City government.

  • Missing evidence can't be introduced at trial
  • Election poll workers can't permit voting without verifying eligibility
  • Polls without voting machines or commissioners can't record votes
  • Illegal sale of criminal-history expungements erases prior convictions

Few things are more central in my public life than our Constitutional protections. My experience in urban law enforcement has taught me a lot – an awful lot - about our justice processes and practices. In this election citizens may never have a better opportunity to influence the one office that administers these essential components of our representative democracy – The Clerk of Criminal District Court.
