MAYOR PERKINS ON BLOOMBERG CAMPAIGN PAYROLL?
DEVELOPING … 11:39 AM … FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2020 …
In a near-frenzy of Shreveport chatter, Mayor Adrian Perkins is said to be receiving $6,000 monthly from Michael Bloomberg’s campaign to become the Democrat Party’s nominee for President at its convention later this year.
News of the mayor’s possible role in that Presidential campaign is now widespread, but word of his payment as a Bloomberg campaign official has now reached a point requiring Perkins’ confirmation (or not).
In my subject call to mayoral Communications Director Ben Riggs for confirmation, the claim was in no way denied. However, Riggs asked to get back with me within an hour of that conversation, pending his contact with Bloomberg campaign officials.
Needless to say, I presume, such a paid position while Mayor of Shreveport would be a first, and inconceivable to me.
