Are voters of Louisiana ready to forgive David Vitter? We’re not so sure.
Vitter is now openly discussing ‘the worst mistake of his life.’ We believe in the power of forgiveness and the opportunity for people to atone for their sins in order to rebuild their lives.

Less than two months ago, the New Orleans Charter Science and Mathematics High School had all but given up on their years-long quest to find a home in the city’s burgeoning downtown biomedical district, citing exorbitant costs there.
