Baton Rouge, La — In a press conference Tuesday, John Bel Edwards’ campaign team members claimed Juanita Washington was offered an opportunity to rescind her resignation from the Office of the Governor. The following is a statement in response to the claims made at the press conference.
“That’s a lie. I never spoke to Matthew Block, and nobody from the Office of the Governor ever contacted me. They continue to be dishonest, and this was just one more opportunity to discredit me and victim shame.”
