Now let's see where rule and ago. First time. Ever that two hurricanes in the Atlantic that have winds of over a 105 miles an hour Matthew. And Nicole. This is the latest that it's ever occurred on record. Carry. And it sounds and in terms of active hurricane seasons we tennis think of them as slow thankfully because we were not affected. But this has been the most active. Atlantic hurricane season. They have had more. Major storms. This year than there hand between. 21 mean. Ten and two when he fifteen combined I believe is not selling the business of responsibly as you call. The numerous forecasts and average or below. There is no scientific proof of this at all then came the chewing on my fear is you got to conspiracy. No Allah my fear is that. Matthew does a loop somehow Matthew and Nicole get married. Oh yeah. But that may not be able happened in Haney possible scientific way at all but. You know lot of fiercer rational answer is a little more just if they got to have a marriage and Dougal loop thing and a do loop. And his goal weight. And bill does the North Atlantic for a honeymoon very ago but don't make any little America votes no is what might getting it to say. I'm adjusting you through this commercial because I don't want my words to be. I believe you deserve the truth from me directly. Last summer I was old enough to know better but I guess I was still young enough to do something stupid. I choose to send improper tax to a young man. I won't go into details out of respect for the rights and privacy of all parties. Amid a bad decision. I regret my actions. I apologized to the families involved and anyone who won embarrassed especially my own failing and the people of Jefferson. Now I work every day to prove they're good people can rise from a bad decision. I want to reassure the citizens of Jefferson that I never abused our mission to use my powers as a public official. And I'm certainly not afraid of the future because I'm Smart enough to never repeat the past. Thank you. He he bought time on some station some stations gave it to him he is not paying us for that item engineered in context nobody. And it is his words at all not all let's just a way came knee and at one point he tells this young man up column of victim that he wanted to put him on a payroll. Are hiring men say. That'd young and says that he would describe sexual things he wanted to do me any ask me to be a secretary or assistant in his office. That way I could be with him and not be question of course there are a lot of politics involved here but that doesn't change. Basically Mike nanny. Admitting it the the behavior that he engaged in. And you know they get. Professional political consideration here in terms of should he resign nets are pretty jaguar opinion poll. And I just like it on a personal note I don't know. If this happens often in families or not. But if you've ever had a situation like this. How how did it play note in. How did the family recover from an and so forth because they do feel bad for his family brawl. Absolutely and then you know that we've had a number of all of the big name politicians in DC that sexting things have taken them down off. And away. And I'm so it's in his go on board. He had a I don't know. Now and I can do that how anybody and that. Position in any position really would want to put that out anyway John hardy good morning or double WL thank you for your patience. Also outlaw it one of the things that I just wanna comment. The current product. It appears that optionally. He Europe volunteered to go forward their duty to kind of escape but what that says climate cooled down down there a little bit. But he'd actually admitted to doing things where he can be charged under the uniform code of military just should be prosecuted under that. Even if you are not actively on duty at the time. Absolutely he still member of the military. And there it goes but bill jeopardy did something. If he got it today court can only be tried under military court at all have in. That but one thing that I wanted to bring up though depending on what the FBI. Figured out what what images or whatever Omnia. Young man alone. He can't be are you done with you in. Or at least you were treated on. You know looking at. The you can you can actually see. It enough calls that the senators and congressmen and social too many doctors. That in the public affairs officer. He can actually be. There is that as ours in the name of the news needed to all of you. That the dollar option. Real quick powerful religion go to some run in late. Do you think is a family matter or political matter. I. Got you know what.

Need to express your opinion on the Mikey any. Scandal and I think it's a good question isn't any of our business. Or is it is something between my Guinea the authorities and he is family. Or does this affect his. Ability to be president of Jefferson Parish and will he be taken seriously from now on. We continued to watch hurricane Matthew bounce along the Florida coast and reports now say 500. And 72 people died in Haiti as a result.

It's in its name Monica what do who I feel sorry for more. Is the young man and he has not come forward yet his identity is being protected in. And I hope it is until he decides that. And I'm getting text from people who who and there are things on the Internet debtors identifying if young man but he's the one I feel sorry for nano would be concerned. With anything bad happening to because I guess I'm. Picturing him as a victim. Yeah not that so. Afraid that it is it. Easier said it it means a whole lot. Well he did. Now let's let's be honest series married he's Gunner. Got now wife and a baby and another baby on the way this happened in at least at that time into when he fifteen. He was inaugurated on January 6 this was during his campaign. I mean he did he did go after a seventeen year old boy in. He did mislead his wife and so forth so I mean there's I think he would be the last one. Which you know I think he's gobbling. Waited in the end chat maybe that man. As he would. Thank in an act that is it that we did not able to put it. Well I don't know how active they. I'm get operated on at all. He's going to be a like it whenever I'd be in your column. Saying that he's pretty much I'm sorry. I mean. Yeah I guide Jeff preceded the color really do. I gotta tell ya I don't. Of all the people in this that I would consider victims I'd I don't consider my Guinea a victim I'm sorry I just known and I would like gas scale though is as political or is as personal as is just his personal business or doesn't go over into his. The being able. To do. Be an effective president in Jefferson Parish in Jefferson Perry spokesman just to be clear. Said Mike Kenny left the New Orleans area about 4 AM that was today. Jordan yesterday that bomb to Larry in Kenner hey Larry era Devin W out a morning. Yeah are you so much here again. Troubling aspect obviously it's a personal matter related to his family. Which is one reason why should regard. And try to repair. It damage. Done to. Obviously partly to the public open and so the public at the right. There about it and never have the right to appear. In court. Battle and Celtic. Just declared politically you're saying. Yeah. I don't see how he does either and I just don't understand. I mean obviously from the the commercial he put out last night he obviously thinks he will and that if he. I guess goes Austin and does some hurricane relief work and then comes back and a couple of weeks so this will have died down but. Politically announcing that happening. Well you know you are human prop. All they had bet you want to make it clear that it was called you about here so obviously you strive to pick the withdraw all are located what it took its audio out what Columbia and all but I obviously he's gonna travel. How. But again I just don't see it now means W to order border they're not actually did portable. It again not stabilizing according to thank you for the call according to state he is of the age of majority. If there was any obscene material texted to him and of course obscene being a difficult. Things improve in the Supreme Court has struggled defining obscenity. He could be. Open to some federal charges at least that's what dean ceiling until this earlier. On some of the text that are coming in. Mama. M did we forget he was still a juvenile at seventeen this man's a public official at seventeen I don't think. He has a this says politically ask yourself who blew the whistle one you any and why. But does that matter David hammer broke the story I don't know from where he got. If DNA is an open bisexual man and his wife knows it's one thing but if he is a closet child molester. That's something else while the show man was seventeen I do think there is an issue of is this the first time he ever engage in this kind of behavior things like. According to David hammer story in the text in and of what the victims said. Meeting him at a food court there's surprising him I guess and in. Given him some designer underwear and and and kissing him and in the back. I guess the hallway near the food court where they're at the doors to one of the different things there are some other things going on and know a lot of people at a golf fans have missed Tiger Woods. We suppose be back. Playing in next week's Safeway open in Napa California. And first sermon fourteen months the Dallas is colonel Laura scratch you know what he screwed himself up because he wanted to look I think in my opinion like a defensive back. He wanted to bulk up beat him Borg and out. And I think him as a Disney adding a mess up his. Back in any can't not gulf and weightlifting usually don't go together there are some exercises that are designed to help you with the golf swing but. Bulking up this not one of that's exactly right David barking up is not now I don't know. So we wish him luck like we would wish everybody luck coming back from an injury Biller knew lowlands higher end of the W out a morning talking about my Guinea. And Ron Allen addressed this email call earlier that are Yasser could be evil legal blaming us that you recap which said because people blame Jews united. And you do not the wrong accuse Republicans and conservatives. And she doesn't want him to resign all Bill Clinton did the resign either because it was never convicted college nonsense. And Louisiana and and also on that level the terminology is called all good moral turpitude. You can be denied a job with the police department. Often get no light sisters stayed at Louisiana sir certain licenses. Our award questions on application is you you must be a good moral turpitude. Well were the same thing that happened to me. Which first off I'm not married and and I don't any it at the point. Mama I there's a clause my contract about moral turpitude where in the company can terminate me immediately. That kind of behavior. And as a public thing you know me you know it was to I don't care what he does spot on the swipes back east you put your. But you're you're you're in the public you'll public official if I can be terminated ball for him bad moral turpitude. And I understood all this god is the that are. I don't see how he can survive this and see how he should survive. And then other people texting and saying you know what. Value to take on this. Bill of people are saying we don't want others have done in David bitter bill the Clinton. And have survived six candles would mean she think that might do any Tia. Now I totally agree.

You know letting you know of anybody Merrill in your family or acquaintances where you have heard of the story like this is somebody was. Somebody was married but then actually. Maybe was not married to the right gender person. And I am. Able to read there would have owning. A day. Out in EU. You call it. A little bit part. Ari. To put on. The same in one hand. It to feel Oprah. You know game. While. I didn't. Get. The blanket. Shall conscious she. Yeah how that happened a lot. Like eating out in the public I mean. I couldn't believe now. Would it be tempered with you if it was a woman. Same thing. Got to thank you Merrill. A lot of people wanna. On some trying to get through as quickly as I possibly can tell men morning Calvin and wants as he feels sorry for Mike inning. Yet you can't feel sorry. Don't. Feel. In because when you tool. You expected to. My problem in my in. So I have a daughter and also apple. Well. And someone to come back and do want market debt. At an apology. Ball well. Or aka. The lock. Parking is outlawed but. While it builds our. Life you know what could be off the it's not like we X out. You think he's been little line. And it caught having finally. You don't. Indeed in this chain will be exposed and that this problem not me exactly of what it. People act that would give up suspect that you want to app now that's the bank and with it guy can't do any media audit. Go back arms and his wife he chilled to jail as like what he did rob the bank. Didn't he waited Jenny cam program. Needed and it stuck out that despite the end you know what you want to do it all back. That that would I mean it when he. It is news. That guy from Kansas. And on them I believe I didn't hear about this one avenue. They've got a look at it it vehicle in. Any he chilled it was so all I did that. I'm innocent it's like you know what. I cannot thank you knew all too. But it. I. I am glad you called Calvin I'll be able to weekend. IT 6018 set any he's at a time to weigh in if you like in. I think this is important because time at the parish president here who. I think you could make a case. For the fact that he ran under false pretense is and who you're a vote and floors nine. Who you thought you were vote and board not that. It would have made him less effective as a parish resident if you were just openly gay. But I think the other considerations that these young man was either reenergized getting out of high school and then there's the part about. The young man saying that ninety any allegedly offered him a jobs and a group which on as a and assistant or secretary in keeping a close that way David hammered channel four double DeVito TV's been working on this for along time. And is given the parish president many many opportunities. To. To respond cherry in Metairie good morning or double WL. Good morning and the mother of silence myself and improved in are to this capital remind our. And it was nothing ranks and wouldn't last term as well would've been more bargain that would have been public. Think it's something that you estate climate and been dealt with privately. I don't think it should be all over the news and don't think that condemn in the gotten any wrong as data however. The boy's been there and enter ultra. Well he'd. When I don't know with the Genesis I believe he wanted is somehow David hammer. Heard of it in the boy agreed to cooperate so long as his name wasn't used and his. Anonymity were it was respected in his privacy was respected so it's not. Don't think his family his parents every time they're only ones we use our listeners the radios and kind of bring back the memory in. Rehab three lives. Well you can't a you don't think distortion of any in any way been made public is what you science. And they at La right I don't think it's have been made public I think that it should have been that would chronicling collecting the elections due to you know lot of they. Now I'm Nancy you have a you don't think people deserve to know. That the president of Jefferson Parish. While married width. One child in the I don't think his wife was pregnant at that time as far as the Crowley chronology goes but was. Hitting on a seventeen year old and trying to lure him into a sexual relationship. You don't think debts of public record in the voters need to know about that. I think that maybe that gonna put her daddy was there any. An inappropriate behavior but I am hoping to the degree of buying underwear it's raining in advance in and it's too much information. I think we could've gotten religion but he was Shaq being a minor and leapt at it that. He'll see again it's not totally anchor because it wasn't. Technically a minor in terms of state law perhaps in terms of federal law buddy do you think we're gonna have to anybody's gone after this young man. Kazaa a does not want to talk about him as a victim for four hours. Right on that plane that you're going termed the same thing evident that we're here. Would you want to hear every card Lister the radio was on there but it was on the news and have to relive it. Well it was a blow whether it was a young man here is again and it decided to come forward with it. And in terms of reliving it well. I I found on ID quite frankly I don't seem sane cheered because this is not about the young man is about Mikey ending. Why aren't. They're boy it was a hit most of them are so I mean as a mother I would wanna get in record religion and I decry that would make an anyway and he crime everywhere I was trying. Oh I chair you'll appreciate your year important. And outside of it from you 952 Tommy Tucker coming back on DeVon WL.
