It's telling that, in her quest to shed light on how taxpayer money - money meant for our kids - is really being spent, Deyshia was literally pushed to the ground and silenced.

With the NFIP set to expire in less than two weeks, it’s time for Louisiana’s congressional delegation to step up to the plate," said Conner.

According to a new report, a video originally posted by Rep. Clay Higgins (R-La.) was promoted by Russian-linked, Kremlin-backed Twitter accounts in possible efforts to influence Louisiana politics and American elections.
A newly released tax proposal in Washington D.C. would cause a massive tax hike for the middle class families in Louisiana's third congressional district, but Rep.
