Last month Baton Rouge was treated to a good round of laughs when a political mailer was sent out to some voters in Baton Rouge, depicting our good mayor with an obviously doctored photo of the mayor with a black eye and a fat lip. It accused our mayor of getting caught with a married woman by her husband, getting beat up by the husband, and running out of the house pulling up his pants as the woman stood in the doorway stark naked. It was more funny than damaging.
But Mayor Holden didn’t find it funny and began to hunt for the perpetrators who told this story. I found it curious and began to ask around and comments I heard was “Absolutely true, every damn word of it.” in almost every circumstance. Apparently it’s common knowledge that Kip likes women a lot.
Still, there hasn’t been credible witnesses that has come forwarded and so the story just sort of died with people accepting that the mayor has extra-marital affairs. I guess that’s the end, right? Maybe not.
In tonight’s city council meeting, Councilman Wayne Carter brought to the attention a certain 400 + days that Mayor Rockip Holden has paid bodyguards for protection between the hours of 10 pm and 2 am, even though these mayorial events never show up on the Mayor’s calender.
You see, Kip Holden has been spending approximately one out of every four nights out with body guards between the hours on 10 pm and 2 am. ONE OUT OF EVERY FOUR NIGHTS BETWEEN 10PM and 2AM. What’s more is that he hasn’t been putting these events that he’s been attending on his mayorial schedule. There’s no explanation why the mayor needs body guards between 10 pm and 2 am one out of every four nights that he was mayor.
Maybe Mayor Rockip Holden likes to go out dancing one out of every four nights and takes his wife with him. Maybe, but ask yourself this, if the mayor feels comfortable enough to be out after 10 pm 1 out of every 4 nights, does he really need to be spending that money on body guards? Is he putting these officers at an unnecessary risk of getting hit by a drunk driver by being out between 10 pm and 2 am one out of every four nights?
Is he getting drunk and he needs the police officers with him to make sure he’s driven home safely? Is he out picking up women, getting them naked, and giving them some… well a reason to vote for him?
And what exactly is wrong with our city council when they don’t want to investigate why the mayor is using body guards between the hours of 10 pm and 2 am one out of every four nights that he’s been mayor? Are our council members protecting something more? Are they involved in this? Do they have secrets that they don’t want to get out?
Maybe I’m completely wrong and he’s not really a sex and party Mayor. Maybe, but I’d like to ask you, our readers, why do you think Mayor Kip Holden has been spending 1 out of 4 nights out with his body guards, paying excessive overtime to them, so he can go out between the hours of 10 pm and 2 am?
UPDATE: Old River Road makes the case for Holden here.
