It’s forever fascinated me that even most of those who opposed him still liked him. Blatantly, shockingly corrupt, but in a fun way that still makes a good story at parties. Rest easy, Easy E.” While another user tweeted “RIP Edwin Edwards, the man whose 1991 campaign against David Duke for Governor of Louisiana brought us one of the most iconic campaign slogans of all time.’
