  • Ward, Charles Interviewee
  • James, Rosemary Interviewer


Interview with Charles Ray Ward, candidate for New Orleans District Attorney. He states that John J. Petre lied when he stated that he wasn't promised anything in return for supporting Harry Connick as district attorney. Rosemary James asks if he thinks that it's possible for a candidate for mayor to endorse a candidate for district attorney and not expect something in return. She asks if he's questioning the ethics of all the candidates for mayor. Wards says he's only questioning Mr. Petre's statement.
