Fire Superintendent Warren McDaniels were on the ‘1996 Fall Election Campaign Assignment’ list posted in City Hall last October with instructions to report to the headquarters of Louisiana Independent Federation of Electors (LIFE), the powerful committee
formed and run by the Morial family (New Orleans Mayor).” The article goes on to say: “More than 200 public employees were ordered to work for LIFE candidates, including Democratic Senate hopeful Mary Landrieu and Orleans Parish District Attorney Harry
Connick. Public employees also were ordered to campaign for local option votes on Harrah’s land-based casino and riverboat casinos. The list shows more than 100 were scheduled to report to LIFE, 40 to the Landrieu campaign, 39 to campaign headquarters of
President Clinton, and 38 to Connick’s campaign headquarters.”
The article goes on to further say: “The campaign activities by LIFE and the Morial administration are an integral part of the election challenge mounted by Jenkins, the Republican state representative who lost to Landrieu by 5,788 votes out of almost
