Here’s the interesting thing though. Rather than fight on the issues, one of the campaign PAC’s for Democratic state representative Patrick C. Williams has decided to take a decidedly negative turn. Gerry May from KTBS posted an image that shows how the Williams for Mayor supporters have decided to continue waging the Democratic War on Women on Victoria Provenza.
I would expect that from the side of a Democratic politician. What I don’t expect it from are the so-called “conservatives” who are helping the Williams campaign. Shame on you guys for even associating yourself with such tactics. Many of the same faces are in the game doing to the same tactics that have resulted in more than one failed campaign for some good candidates. You know who you are.
Fight with the facts. Fight with the issues. Fight with experience.
Provenza also claims (via Facebook Messenger) that she has custody of her children, and that KTBS has knowledge and documentation of that fact. However, according to her the TV station “has an agenda.” I requested a copy of that order, but Victoria claims that she has filed a libel suit against KTBS.
“At this point it’s in the hands if [sic] the attorneys.” — Victoria Provenza via Facebook Messenger
The truth is Victoria Provenza can put herself in enough hot water – such as with her now infamous KTBS interview. However, to be fair, she claims (via Facebook messenger) that there was about 4 hours of interview footage that was heavily edited. That may or may not be true, but Victoria should have avoided that trap.
UPDATE: Just chatted with Jim Wells from the MyBossier blog – he checked the court records. As of right now, there is NO LAWSUIT filed against KTBS. This race is literally crazy now.

The 2014 Shreveport Mayoral Race might just go down in history as one of the oddest fields of candidates in the history of the race, but of course, the 2010 race was a little odd too.
