Brickbat: Shameful Indeed


New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell recently vetoed a bill that would order the owners of an apartment building to rent out a city-owned unit. After the city council overrode her veto, Cantrell said it is "shameful" that the city will not lease a suite in Caesars Superdome, home of the New Orleans Saints. The city-owned apartment was supposed to be used by visiting elected officials, but the city discovered last year that Cantrell had been using the apartment without paying rent.
