Anyway, now that we're past that, there's no excuse to hold back. Seems like Boustany would prefer if everyone just dropped the subject now.
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Republican U.S. Rep. Charles Boustany of Louisiana has dropped his defamation lawsuit over a book that alleges the he was a client of prostitutes who were later killed.Might be a good time to start asking why.
Boustany sued the author and publisher of "Murder in the Bayou" in October, when he was in a tight Senate race competition. Boustany lost the race in November and ended his lawsuit this month. Boustany lawyer Jimmy Faircloth confirmed the lawsuit dismissal Tuesday.
"He felt as though it would probably be best for all concerned for him not to proceed with the lawsuit," Faircloth said.
