Sen. Landrieu Recommends Kenneth Polite as U.S. Attorney for Louisiana’s Eastern District
Description: U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu today made her recommendation to President Obama for the position of U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Louisiana. It's Kenneth Allen Polite, Jr. a man who has served as a federal prosecutor, a criminal defense attorney and a corporate litigator.
Landrieu says, "For the region to continue to build and thrive, it is imperative that we have a strong and proven crime fighter to protect the citizens of the Eastern District and root out corruption where it exists so that New Orleans remains the entrepreneurial capital of the nation. Mr. Polite is part of the next generation of dynamic leaders who are committed to ushering in that change. He believes in the potential of our region and understands that establishing and nurturing the public trust will be critical to this effort. His legal experience and years as a prosecutor, combined with his stellar academic credentials, quickly elevated him to the top of an impressive field of candidates. I am delighted to recommend him as the next U.S. attorney for our state's Eastern District."
